Using yum effectively (Part 2)

This is the 2nd part of using yum effectively. See information Using yum effectively (Part 1)

There is one utility seldom used which is part of yum ie yumdownloader. Yumdownloader is a cool utility to download the rpm package instead of installing directly

Using yumdownloader# yum install yum-utils (download the yum-utils package)
# yumdownloader (package-name)
# yumdownloader alpine (For example)
# yumdownloader --source (package-name) (source packages)

Using the GUI yum installer
# yum install pirut
# pirut
