Centos 6/RHEL Package Manager (Webmin)

With a minimal installaton of Centos 6, without all the bells and whistles of Gnome etc you may be wondering how to manage packages, especially if you are not a yum expert.

Well one way is to use Webmin, a unix system management program developed by Jamie Cameron, which has a section in the System tab for software packages.

This provides a way of managing your packages which, while not as fully featured as (for example) Synaptic, gives you a basic management system which you can install with a few clicks.

You can install Webmin by following this guide

Even if you don't use any of Webmin's other features, you will probably find the package management tool useful.
