Skill Level Intermediate
- [Scott] Managing the software that's installed on your Linux system is an important basic part of system administration. Software is often bundled up as packages to make management easier. We can add software to our system by compiling source code, by manually installing software packages, or by using package management software that automates a lot of the work for us. In this course, we'll explore the basics of working with software packages at the command line and take a look at working with the repositories that hold information about available packages. For managing packages on CentOS and Red Hat Enterprise Linux we'll take a look at RPM and the YUM Package Manager. For managing packages on Ubuntu, Debian, and related distros, we'll take a look at apt and Dpackage. We'll take a quick look at compiling software from source code as well. I'll also cover package management on OpenSUSE using Zipper. I'm Scott Simpson, and I hope you'll join me in this LinkedIn Learing course about package management on Linux. Let's go.
