To Install new software in linux there is command utility called rpm---Redhat Package Manager.Normally the software you are going to install will have some files ending with .rpm.These files must be installed to install a s/w.

Usage of rmp:

To test if the s/w is installed use the following query

rpm -q [s/w name]

eg: rpm -q firefox

To install the s/w use the following command:

rpm -i [s/w name] or *.rpm

To uninstall the s/w use the following command:
