The above command will ask confirmation before installing any package on your system.If you want to install packages automatically without asking any confirmation, use option -y as shown in below example.The yum (Yellowdog Updater Modified) utility is included with RHEL/Fedora/Cent OS for the management of software.It is an interactive, automated system for maintaining systems using RPM.I'm a beginner and i need some advice about that I'm also looking about a command that gives me all the available packages in a repository that i added to yum thx You can use yum to update itself - that's absolutely fine.By default 'yum list' shows you all the packages from all the enabled repositories, but you can disable a repository for a single operation with "--disablerepo=repository" So this command shows all the available packages that *aren't* from Core, Updates or Extras: su -c 'yum --disablerepo=base --disablerepo=updates-released --disablerepo=extras list' Most repositories have hundreds or thousands of packages so add a grep on the end to only show what you're interested in: su -c 'yum --disablerepo=base --disablerepo=updates-released --disablerepo=extras list' | grep -i 'what-i-want' Yum has other search facilities, which are briefly covered in the Fedora documentation: I tend to go to the Website of the repository when I want to just casually browse the packages.It allows users and system administrator to easily install, update, remove or search software packages on a systems.It was developed and released by Seth Vidal under GPL (General Public License) as an open source, means anyone can allowed to download and access the code to fix bugs and develop customized packages.
