- [Instructor] Now that we've had a look at…searching for a package, downloading a package,…and exploring information about packages,…let's actually install something.…Here at the command line, I'll use the install command…for yum with sudo yum install,…and I'll install the software tree.…Here I can see a listing of the…repositories that yum's currently using.…Yours may be different, and if I haven't used yum…in a while or haven't updated the information…from the repositories, it'll go…and refresh that information.…Further down I can see that it's…working on resolving the dependencies.…There wasn't much for it to do,…so I'm just getting the one package I requested.…
Below that I see a list of information…about the packages that will be installed.…Again, just the one, and I can see the architecture,…the package information, which repository it's…coming from, and the size of the package coming down.…That matches up with what the total download size is,…and I can see that once it's extracted…and installed, it'll be 87 kilobytes.…
