Login with root permission, otherwise, you may start commands with “sudo”.

Install Yum-Axelget

Yum-Axelget is not provided by the official repository so we have to install EPEL repository first so we can install the needed plugins and dependencies.

Install EPEL repository

You can easily download and install EPEL repository using Yum with the command below:

yum install epel-release

Install Axelget

Now that you have successfully installed EPEL repository you can install Axelget with the command below:

yum install yum-axelget

As soon as the installation process is finished, you are good to go. from now on your Yum downloads will handle by Axel and there is no need to use any other commands you can just normally use Yum like before. And each time you use Yum for installing something you will see the Axelget plugin loaded in first lines to make you sure that it’s working:

Loaded plugins: axelget, fastestmirror
