Installing RPM Packages

.rpm files are the installation files for software in the rhel CentOS flavours of linux. For this example I used wget to download http://mirror.centos.org/centos/7/os/x86_64/Packages/kate-4.10.5-6.el7.x86_64.rpm

To install these, use:

yum install kate-4.10.5-6.el7.x86_64.rpm

You can then make sure you have the latest version by running:

yum upgrade
