If you have downloaded packages from an errata on the Red Hat website, you can install them by opening your file manager and double-clicking the package you want to install. The Package Management Tool should open up and check the package for any dependencies you need to fulfill before installation, such as package or library files needed. If all goes well, the package will be installed and you can immediately begin using the software from the installed package. However, if there are dependencies, the Package Management Tool will alert you with suggested files and packages you need to install.
The packages necessary to fulfill the dependency issues can be installed by following the steps in Section 15.3 Installation CD-ROMs.
Refer to the Red Hat Linux Customization Guide for more information about the Package Management Tool.
