Learn how to discover package dependencies when they have been built to rely on other tools.
- Now that we've seen how to look for a package,…how to download it and how to dig into the information…about the package, it's time to install one.…And the process is really pretty straightforward.…With both apt and apt-get we can use the Install command…followed by the name of the package that we want to install.…Or, with dpkg we can use the -i flag…to install a local package file.…Using apt or apt-get the software will go out…and find any dependencies that a package requires…and download them, in addition…to the package that's requested.…Then it will follow the installation scripts…in the packages and put everything in place.…
Let's use apt to install the Nmap software,…which is a tool that allows us to scan networks.…If you're working on a clean install,…or you haven't done anything with packages…in a while, it's a good idea to run…an apt update before installing software…to make sure that you have an up to date copy…of the software lists from their repositories.…And here I can see the software going through…
