Install Additional Software Packages

Additional software components on Airlock should only be installed as RPM. To prevent clashes with other installed packages and keep track of new components there is a custom yum repository where the new RPMs must be placed and indexed before installation.

Be aware that there might be software that conflict with Airlock's own components.
Do never install new components without testing it first on a pre-production Airlock.

# /usr/bin/yum -y install <Package-Name>
