Abstract

In Chapter 2 you installed your first Linux host. As you learned in that chapter, a host can be installed with a variety of different applications, ranging from a bare-bones installation to one with every application and tool installed. But this isn’t the end of the line for installing and managing applications. Once you’ve installed your host, you’ll often need to add applications, upgrade and patch them, and sometimes remove them. This chapter explains how to do these tasks on both Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Ubuntu.
