Yellow Dog Updater, Modified [YUM]
The Yellow dog Updater, Modified (YUM) is an open source command line package management utility for RPM-enabled Linux O.S..
It was developed by Seth Vidal and a group of volunteer programmers, and is currently maintained as part of Duke's University at DUKE project. Though yum is a command line utility, several other tools provide GUI to yum, among them pup, pirut, and yumex. Seth Vidal now works for Red Hat and a number of other Red Hat programmers are involved in the development of yum.
