It depends on the software and how you install it. If you install via yum or rpm, then there is an excellent chance that it'll appear there. If you install from a tar.gz file, then it will not.

what i really want to know is, if i'm using yum to install a new software, will it appear in add/remove software? under which category?

btw, i'm actually refering to here:

What are you actually installing?  If you can tell us the package that you are installing, we could probably find out for you.

Hi InNoCenT_Ch1ld,

Any software you install using yum will appear in the rpm database.  For example,

rpm -qa | grep -i xmms

Cheers,
Steve :)
