Can you clarify exactly what you mean by "own software"? Something you've written? Something you've downloaded? Something you're looking for?

yum is the installer for the console.

you can install software via

yum install packagename

your own software needs to be the appropriate package for your distribution.

try this:

yum localinstall packagename

yum you only can run as root.
