Get started on RHEL 8
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 introduces new features that accelerate your application development including installation, coding, tool selection and setup. It includes dozens of runtime languages, compilers, databases, and web and cache servers.
Start with these commands below for your first time through.
For the impatient, use this yum syntax to install an Application Stream @modulename[:version]
Most recent version:
# yum install @postgresql # installs the default, PostgreSQL 10
Or, install a specific version:
# yum install @postgresql:9.6 # installs PostgreSQL 9.6
Use this if you want to see a list of what’s available:
# yum module list # find available application streams
For container development, RHEL 8 adds new Linux container tools: Buildah (container building), Podman (running containers) and Skopeo (sharing/finding containers). You can easily build images based on the many Application Streams.
