A short yum primer

I’ve always been a Debian person. Recently I got to have a few minutes at a Centos terminal and found that it was quite simple to use. The following are a few basic commands for package installation on centos:

Install packages with:

yum install packagename

You can skip confirmations with -y as on Debian

If you dont know the package name, search for it with:

yum search packagename
