#What is DNF?
DNF (Dandified Yum) is the default package manager for modern versions of Fedora, Red Hat Enterprise Linux, and CentOS. It is a fork of the Yum package manager, which adds a few key features, including improved performance, better dependency resolution, and support for modular software repositories. DNF also has a more modern and user-friendly command-line interface.
#DNF Key Features
Most recognizable DNF features include:
- Automatic dependency resolution: DNF can automatically install all the necessary packages for a given program, including any dependencies that are required.
- Improved performance: DNF is faster and more efficient than Yum, particularly when it comes to dependency resolution and metadata caching.
- Modular software repositories: DNF supports modular repositories, which allow for more granular control over package versions and dependencies.
Some of the DNF use-cases are:
- Installing and managing packages on Fedora, Red Hat Enterprise Linux, and CentOS systems.
- Updating packages to the latest versions available in the official repositories.
- Resolving package dependencies and conflicts to ensure that software is installed and configured correctly.
