RPM Package Manager (RPM) definition & meaning
The RPM Package Manager (RPM) refers to a powerful software package management system. While building computer software from the source into easily distributable packages, RPM installs, updates, and uninstalls packaged software. It also allows users to check the packaged software is installed or not. PRM in Linux was created by early Red Hat founding programmers Marc Ewing and Erik Troan. In 1995, this software package management system became the default way to distribute software for Red Hat Linux-based distributions.
