Re: PACKAGE DEPENDENCIES

If not installed, use:

rpm -qRp .rpm

q=query
R=requires?
p=package file

Re: PACKAGE DEPENDENCIES

I agree that the above command will give you the list of dependencies if the package is not installed.Also you can refer to

Re: PACKAGE DEPENDENCIES

Personally, I have gotten lazy these days and just do a simple

yum install

It will do most of the work for you and you will see a print out of what it thinks it needs to make the install work.

As long as you did not provide the -y option in the yum command, then you have the option of allowing or denying the install at that time.

Of course, this all assumes that you have yum installed and have the repositories configured...
