Installing and Updating Software: YUM, GNOME Software, PackageKit, and RPM
Fedora software is distributed through an online Fedora software repository. Table 4-1 lists Fedora software information and site locations. Software is added to your system by accessing software repositories with the YUM (Yellowdog Update, Modified) software package manager. With the integration of YUM into your Fedora system, you can now think of that software as an easily installed extension of your current collection. The commonly used Fedora software repositories are listed in Table 4-2.
