Yellow Dog Updater, Modified

Yum is a great CLI application, with GUI front ends, similar to Apt for RPMs that makes updating, getting information about, installing and removing RPMs easy. It's used by Yellow Dog, Fedora Core, and RHEL (and possibly more distros I do not know about). When you install something via Yum, Yum automatically downloads and installs all dependencies of the package you want if you don't have the dependencies, putting an end to dependency hell if the package you want is in your Yum repositories.

A great Yum configuration file for the most recent stable Fedora Core that adds great repositories can be found at
I escaped dependency hell for Frozen Bubble by using Yum :)

When you like something or you think something is cool. It is kind of how "sick" was big a while back. Just another word for something you like. You can use it with pretty much anything, and it is great because people think you are crazy. Just have fun with it!

Mia: "Oh YUM! That sounds great!"
