I am new to Linux and am running CentOS. I have come across four ways to update or install software.
So far, I've seen:
yum install [program]
apt-get install [program]
rpm -i [program].rpm
That last one is a real pain, especially coming from Windows, where a program install is usually one click and a nice install wizard.
So, my questions are:
- Why are there so many different ways to do this in Linux?
- Which one do you recommend using, and why?
- Are there any other ways to install programs in Linux?
