RPM Package manager – Using RPM Commands

RPM Package Manager is a package management system. The name RPM refers to two things: a software package file format, and software packaged in this format.

This document contains an overview of the principal RPM commands for installing, uninstalling, upgrading, querying, listing and checking RPM packages on your Linux system.

To install a RPM package, use the command:

# rpm -ivh foo-1.1-2.i386.rpm

Take a note that RPM packages have a file of names like foo-1.1-2.i386.rpm, which include the package name (foo), version (1.1), release (2), and architecture (i386).
