RPM packages

Good Morning All,
I'm looking for help on installing a rpm package. I have 2 packages in the directories i want but i need them installed. If anybody can recall the command process it'd be much appreciated! Thanks in advance!

Re: RPM packages

Hi Kyle,

juts run rpm -ivh package-name.rpm

i for install
v for verbose (tells you what it does)
h for hash (shows installation percentage, useful to know if it's blocked or not if it take time).

If it's an update, replace i by U.

Otherwise, under redhat, with nautilus, right click on package and select 'open with --- install package'.


You can lean only on what resists you...
