PowerTools Packages

Red Hat PowerTools is a collection of software packages built for the Red Hat Linux 6.2 operating system. PowerTools includes the latest versions (as of this product's release date) of hundreds of programs -- so finding an interesting application should be easy.

Among the many applications are audio programs, chat clients, development tools, editors, file managers, emulators, games, graphics programs, productivity applications, math/statistics packages, systems administration and network management tools, and window managers.

Additionally, for PalmPilot personal organizer users, the pilot directory on the CD-ROM contains applications for use with PalmPilots.

Now that you know what you can find on PowerTools, you may want to know how to install them. See the section called Installing PowerTools Packages for installation information.
