2.5. Installing a Software Collection

To ensure that a Software Collection is on your system, install the main meta package of the Software Collection. You can use conventional tools like Yum or PackageKit for this task because Software Collections are fully compatible with the RPM Package Manager. For example, to install a Software Collection named software_collection_1 with Yum, run the following command:
 yum install software_collection_1 
This command will automatically install all the packages that are part of the Software Collection. Also, if you install an application that depends on a Software Collection, the Software Collection will be installed along with the rest of the application's dependencies.
For detailed information on Yum and PackageKit usage, refer to the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 Deployment Guide.
