RPM Package Manager

RPM Package Manager
Rpm is the Redhat Package Management system. By using rpm utility the user can instal new packages or upgrade and can also remove existing packages.
Pattern:
vsftpd-2.0.6-0.el6.i386.rpm
Here vsftpd is the name of package & 2.0.6-0.el6 is the version of package & i386 is the type of architecture of the package & .rpm is the extension.
To install rpm:
#rpm –force –aid
options:
-i  =  install
-v  =  verbose
-h  =  to display progress in hashes
–force = to install forcefully
–aid    = to install packages with dependencies
ex: rpm  -ivh  nfs-utils   –force  –aid
rpm  -ivh  nfs-utils-lib  –force  –aid
To upgrade:
#rpm
options:
-U  =  upgrade
-v  =  verbose
-h  =  to display in hashes
eg: rpm -Uvh  nfs-utils
rpm -Uvh  nfs-utils-lib
To remove an rpm:
#rpm –nodeps
options:
-e  = to remove package from the system
–nodeps =  remove without dependencies
eg: # rpm -e nfs-utils   –nodeps
To query rpm package:
# rpm
options:
-q    =   to query the availability of installed package
-qa  =  queries all installed rpm’s in o/s
-qc  =  list only configuration files stored in queried rpm
-qd  =  list only doc files stored in queried rpm
-qi   =  displays complete information about queried rpm
-qs  =  displays status of files in queried rpm
-ql   =  displays files related to queried rpm
-qf   =  query find of the package
Eg :- To display information of Package
# rpm -qi nfs-utils
