YUM vs APT-GET

I’m writin this post because I’m trying to install OpenBravo 3 ERP on my CentOS 6.2 server, and as you’ll be able to see below

http://wiki.openbravo.com/wiki/Installation/Ubuntu

the standard installation procedure requires the APT-GET tool install this package.

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:openbravo-isv/ppa

$ sudo apt-get update

$ sudo apt-get install openbravo-3

It’s important to note that the APT-GET tool is standard on the UBUNTU O/S, but not on the CentOS, so this takes me to a dead end, making ask the following questions:

  • Can Apt-Get be installed on CentOS?
  • Can I install the software using another tool?

This is a criticar issue I will try to resolve to be able to install this process and will keep you posted.

Fist we need to make sure we undestand the are two diferent type of systems as to which package managing concerns, these are:

  • RPM based distros – which use systems like CentOS
  • Debian packages – which are used in systems like Ubuntu

First of all, lets answer the question, what is RPM; it basically works
