If i wish to install new package on rhel 7 how i can check if that package will not impact negative the system?
What are the steps?
Is there is package description a list with what packages this package will conflict?


Hi Marius,

On RHEL you can just run yum install package you will get warnings if there might be conflicting packages already installed.

Hi Marius,

If you install packages from an external source, you do it on your own risk, those are not supported by Red Hat. Security issues which can impact your system are always possible, so if you want to stay on the safe side, install packages from the official Red
Hat repositories. There are sources that can be considered safe though - such like repositories from EPEL and RPM Fusion. :)
