Chapter 5. Installing RHEL 9 content
The following sections describe how to install content in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 9:
5.1. Installing packages
The following procedure describes how to install packages using
Install the package:
# dnf install package-name
Replace package-name with the name of the package.
To install multiple packages and their dependencies simultaneously, use:
# dnf install package-name-1 package-name-2
Replace package-name-1 and package-name-2 with the names of the packages.
When installing packages on a multilib system (AMD64, Intel 64 machine), you can specify the architecture of the package by appending it to the package name:
# dnf install package-name.arch
Replace package-name.arch with the name and architecture of the package.
If you know the name of the binary you want to install, but not the package name, you can use the path to the binary as an argument:
# dnf install /usr/sbin/binary-file
/usr/sbin/binary-filewith a path to the binary file.
dnfsearches through the package lists, finds the package which provides
/usr/sbin/binary-file, and prompts you as to whether you want to install it.
To install a previously-downloaded package from a local directory, use:
# dnf install /path/
Replace /path/ with the path to the package.
5.2. Installing package groups
The following procedure describes how to install a package group by a group name or by a groupID using
To install a package group by a group name, use:
# dnf group install group-name
Replace group-name with the full name of the group or environmental group.
To install a package group by a groupID, use:
# dnf group install groupID
Replace groupID with the ID of the group.
5.3. Running installed content
New commands are usually enabled after you install content from RHEL 9 repositories. If the commands originated from an RPM package or RPM packages were enabled by a module, the experience of using the command should be no different.
To run the new commands use them directly:
