Using Yum Extender

Using Yum Extender

Although pirut is the default package management tool for Fedora, development work has also been carried out by the community on a more powerful tool called Yum Extender (yumex). Yum Extender has gained in popularity since its release just over two years ago, mainly because of its friendly user interface and because it is more feature laden than pirut.

Yum Extender is not installed by default, so you need to drop to a command line to run the following command

# yum install yumex

to download and install the Yum Extender package. After yum has finished, you will find an entry under the Applications, System Tools menu. Figure 34.4 shows Yum Extender in action.
