Updating, installing, removing and querying packages are core skills for anyone managing Linux distributions. Some of the most popular package management tools include the yum and rpm tools included in the Red Hat/CentOS Linux distributions. During this activity, you will work with the Red Hat/CentOS high-level package command yum for updating, installing and removing packages, since it automatically manages packages required for dependencies. You will also use the Red Hat/CentOS low-level package command rpm to query information about installed packages. After completing this activity, you should know how to properly manage software packages on Red Hat/CentOS systems.

What are Hands-On Labs?

Hands-On Labs are scenario-based learning environments where learners can practice without consequences. Don't compromise a system or waste money on expensive downloads. Practice real-world skills without the real-world risk, no assembly required.
