"DNF is the next upcoming major version of Yum, a package manager for RPM-based Linux distributions. It roughly maintains CLI compatibility with Yum and defines strict API for extensions and plugins. Plugins can modify or extend features of DNF or provide additional CLI commands on top of those mentioned below." - dnf manpage


RPM package dnf
Added in Fedora 18, 19 20, 21



dnf comes with Fedora since version 18, but dnf can installed by using the YUM Command:

# yum install dnf


In the basic methods, dnf can be used almost exactly as YUM:

# sudo dnf search audacity 
# sudo dnf install audacity.x86_64 
# sudo dnf remove audacity
