Is DNF available for Rocky Linux?

by ,


We have by far the largest RPM repository with NGINX module packages and VMODs for Varnish. If you want to install NGINX, Varnish, and lots of useful performance/security software with smooth yum upgrades for production use, this is the repository for you.
Active subscription is required.

Operating System and Software

  • Rocky Linux 8

Problem

  • When will dnf replace yum in RHEL?
  • Is dnf available in Rocky Linux 8?

How to Fix

As indicated in the Rocky Linux 8 Release Notes 1:

On Rocky Linux 8, installing software is ensured by the new version of the YUM tool, which is based on the DNF technology (YUM v4).

YUM v4 is also available for the CentOS 7 release as a Technology Preview release of nextgen-yum4 2
