    If apt-get is settup you can apt-get a program with
    Code:
    apt-get --install program
    and it will install the program and its dependancies, for more info on apt-get you might want to read http://www.linuxforums.org/tutorials...ial-19957.html.

    Just a Question regarding the operation process of apt-get

    consider i type apt-get install (humm lets say "AMSN")

    so will amsn(clone of msn messenger) WILL DOWNLOAD ON MY PC?
    and then being install ?

    OR

    When i typed apt-get update All Pacakages are downloaded on my pc and then were installed(seems not possible)

    One more thing How to list the installed packages on my pc because i am considering to remove some.

    and how to cheak the remaining space of my hdd(on which linux is installed)

    sorry for so many question but linux had hit me Hard and continue to attract me.


    Thanks

    Ali

    Code:
    apt-get --install amsn
    Will download and install amsn on your compter as well as any dependancies.

    As for programs you can list all rpms you have with
    Code:
    rpm -qa

    I'm not sure if there is much of a diffarence, it is just habbit, since you can use apt-get without the --install, with just install.

    searching the web it seems that opengl is atached to your graphics card drivers, so you'll have to download and install the drivers for your graphics card form your card manufaturers website.
