Re: Package management

Read about yum and rpm.

rpm is a package handler, yum is a dependency manager and supports repositories for downloading packages.

Re: Package management

Install it.

You search for missing applications with 'yum provides */<file>'. According to that you likely need the "libxml2-devel' package.

If there is any special need to install from source first search for your package with yum

yum search package_name
Then choose the package you need and
