Apt-get for RedHat Linux

RedHat 7.3 and 8.0 do not have tools like Mandrakes urpmi for installing/updating rpms.


After researching on Google groups for a similiar Redhat tool . APT seemed to be the best.
I think its a tool from Debian linux.

I needed to install portmap rpm on our
SME [ internet gateway/web server/ email etc] server



these were the steps:

1- download http://ftp.freshrpms.net/pub/freshrpms/redhat/7.3/apt/apt-0.5.5cnc3-fr0.rh73.2.i386.rpm

2-install rpm -ivh apt-*.rpm

3- apt-get update

4- apt-get install portmap

See apt-get man pages for more info.

see http://apt.freshrpms.net/ for other redhat versions.

There are options to apt-get that I don't use on production machines, like
apt-get dist-upgrade
or
apt-get remove

try using --dry-run to test apt-get. here is an example:


apt-get --dry-run  install gcc

Unfortunately, links change. The best thing to do when that happens is to Google for the last part:

apt-0.5.5cnc3-fr0.rh73.2.i386.rpm

in this case. That will turn up places that still have this.
