Rpm Basics

Kinds of RPMs

  • source RPM — an archive of all the source required to create the program
  • binary RPM — the archive of the installable program

Starter Repos:

Installing RPMs

the install process is:

$ sudo rpm -ivh (list of RPMs)

(and it complains about unsatisfied dependencies; got get those and add them to the command-line until all dependencies are satisfied).
