This chapter described how to install software under SUSE Linux. We've looked at how this differs from Windows software installation, and how the RPM package management system is designed to make life easier.
You learned how to use YaST2 to install software under the GUI, as well as both YaST and the rpm command to install software at the command-line prompt. Finally, we looked at how programs can be compiled from their source code, which is a fundamental process of all versions of Linux.
In the next chapter, we'll look at how the system of users under SUSE Linux can be administered.
