How To Install Homebrew on AlmaLinux 9

Install Homebrew on AlmaLinux 9

In this tutorial, we will show you how to install Homebrew on AlmaLinux 9. For those of you who didn’t know, Homebrew is a package manager designed to facilitate software management on Linux systems. With an extensive repository of software packages, Homebrew offers a streamlined approach to installing and maintaining software. By handling dependencies automatically and providing a user-friendly command-line interface, Homebrew simplifies the often complex process of software management.

This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of Homebrew on AlmaLinux 9. You can follow the same instructions for CentOS and Rocky Linux or RHEL-based.

Prerequisites

  • A server running one of the following operating systems: AlmaLinux 9.
  • It’s recommended that you use a fresh OS install to prevent any potential issues.
  • SSH access to the server (or just open Terminal if you’re on a desktop).
  • An active internet connection. You’ll need an internet connection to download the necessary packages and dependencies for Homebrew.
  • A non-root sudo user or access to the root user. We recommend acting as a non-root sudo user, however, as you can harm your system if you’re not careful when acting as the root.

Install Homebrew on AlmaLinux 9

Step 1. Before diving into the installation process, ensure your AlmaLinux 9 system is up-to-date. Run the following commands in your terminal:

sudo dnf update
sudo sudo install gcc glibc-devel glibc-headers

Step 2. Installing Homebrew on AlmaLinux 9.

Now, let’s fetch and install Homebrew using a single command line:

/bin/bash -c "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/HEAD/install.sh)"

The installation script will download and install Homebrew on your system. Once the installation is complete, you can run the following command to verify the installation:

brew doctor

If the installation was successful, you should see a message indicating that your system is ready to brew.

Step 3. Using Homebrew.

With Homebrew securely installed, you’re ready to dive into the world of efficient package management. Homebrew offers a range of commands for searching, installing, updating, and uninstalling packages.

  • Searching for Packages

When searching for a package, use the brew search command. For instance, to find information about the package “example_package,” run:

brew search example_package
  • Installing Packages

Installing packages is a breeze with Homebrew. For instance, to install “example_package,” execute:

brew install example_package
  • Updating Packages

To keep your software up to date, regularly update your installed packages using the following commands:

brew update
brew upgrade
  • Uninstalling Packages

If you wish to bid farewell to a package, remove it using the brew uninstall command:

brew uninstall example_package
