|YumEx o Yum Extender is a Graphic interface which helps us to easily install any package in Fedora. It would be a bit what Synaptic is for distributions that use apt-get.|
sudo yum install yumex
Table of Contents
In it we can select different options for the list and combine them between them:
- Category: allows us to select a category to classify the packages, including RPM Groups, Repositories, Architecture, Sizes and Age. Selecting a category adds a panel with the classification corresponding to the category to the view.
- Updates: only packages that update one already installed will be listed.
- Available - All packages available to install on your system will be listed.
- Installed: only the packages installed on our system will be listed.
Below is an example in this view considering only packages organized by size that are updates and their sizes are in the range 10M-50M (large packages).
In this view we can select complete groups of packages to install or remove, or update.
Repositories Selection View
In this view we can select which repositories to enable or disable.
It refers to the console output of the tasks performed by Yumex on the system.
Packet Queue View
In this view we can appreciate the package selections on which Yumex will act when we indicate it.
Once our search and selection is finished, we can then finally proceed and click on the Process Queue or Process Queue button.
