Me to new in Linux World. There are some command for CentOS that i used.

yum update ¤ its is update ur package list
yum upgrade ¤ its update ur system
yum search ¤ searching applications
yum install ¤ installing applications whatever u want

these commands are running in terminal. if u want gui package manager in centos, u have to search the PACKAGE KIT. in the package kit u can modify or install or change the repos by manually.

if u want some extra package u have to install it. ( example ¤ epel, elrepo, nux) these package are the most useful repos.

if u want to change something in ur repolist u have to modify the /etc/yum.repos.d file.

i hope i helped u.

sorry for my bad english :slight_smile:
