It seems to me that when I download RPM packages that the names they use are sometimes different from the programs they install. For example:
yum install httpd apache -v
I install the RPM package
httpd to be able to use
apache program. This does not seem to make sense to me.
My question is why do RPM packages have different names to the programs they install? Why is there no consistent naming convention or system that means package names more accurately reflect the programs they install? No doubt this was done for a good reason, I just don't know it yet! Thanks in advance.
