Thread: New to Redhat

    New to Redhat

    Hi all
    I have been a programmer for 10 years and a network admin for seven (so I have a little technical experience) ;D and just decided to try Redhat. I was wandering, which is the best site for rpm’s. I am an MCSE (I know, I know) and am completely disgusted with MS > and determined to make this work. Any advice would be appreciated.

    redhat also has a large quantity of rpms, if you are looking to install something, you can (on the CLI) type:

    up2date --whatprovides=foobar

    also, another site to check out would be

    other than that, try searching on, and, most of the more stable projects will have rpms ready for you.
