Yum is a command-line utility that allows the user to check for updates and automatically download and install updated RPM packages. Yum automatically obtains and downloads dependencies, prompting the user for permission as necessary.
  • In Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.10, users are allowed to install 32-bit and 64-bit packages in parallel. For example, when a 32-bit package is installed on the system and the user runs the yum install package command, the 64-bit version will be installed in parallel with the 32-bit version.
