Package Formats

Common Package Formats:

  • .rpm (RPM Package Manager): Used by Red Hat, CentOS, Fedora, and related distributions.
  • YUM (Yellowdog Updater, Modified): YUM is a high-level package management tool that works on top of RPM. It provides a more user-friendly interface for managing software packages and resolving dependencies.

Understanding Package Dependencies:

  • Packages often rely on other packages or libraries. Package managers handle the installation of these dependencies.
