-Over the last years Red Hat always had a problem with their software management. Debian had [[http://​en.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​Advanced_Packaging_Tool|apt]],​ Suse settled on yum but Red Hat tried several software management tools. For now they seem to have settled on yum as well. So this page is about Red Hats implementation of yum. Yum stands for [[http://​en.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​Yellowdog_Updater,​_Modified|Yellowdog Updater, Modified]] and works with repositories to manage [[http://​en.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​Red_Hat_Package_Manager|RPMs]] which is the format most software on Linux systems is packed in. IN this page you'll also find some references to the original rpm command the yum commands are based on. +Over the last years Red Hat always had a problem with their software management.
