After wrapping up my master in telecommunications, I have been working with computer systems. A decade ago, I had my first encounter with Linux and immediately fell in love with it because of it being an open-source! I work in an enterprise-level company, but I always try to stay ahead and do various other projects, and learn new technologies. Part of learning is sharing knowledge. I consider it a part of my learning path. I hope that in my articles, I have aggregated my knowledge, explained the material as simple as possible and that I have sparked your curiosity to learn Linux.
If you ever wondered what YUM stands for, it is an abbreviation for Yellow Dog Updater, Modified. It is a high-level package manager, that uses the RPM package management tool in the background. How it differs from RPM? I will show you in a minute.
We use RPM to install a package from a .rpm file. We need to have a file, so in order to demonstrate it to you, we will download a .rpm file for a package called epel-release, which is a set of additional repositories (you can think of these as software stores) for Fedora and CentOS.
In this tutorial, we will show you how to install CentOS 6 on VirtualBox on Windows. For this, you will need to have VirtualBox installed, and download Centos 6 ISO file from the official servers.
