  5. It has an awful lot of levers, but not many for basic use
  6. need. A quick course (that is, what this guy knows ;-)
  7.  
  8. rpm -Uvh packagename.rpm
  9. Installs the program (or often complains about dependencies ;)
  10.  
  11. rpm - qa
  12. List the names of all installed packages, eg java-1.1.8v3-1
  13.  
  14. rpm -ql package name (e.g. the java of the previous command, i.e. without version information,
  15. name only)
  16. List the files included in the package
  17.  
  18. These will do fine when you're still piping, e.g.:
  19. rpm -qa | grep java
  20. This will list all installed packages with java in their name
  21.  
  22. Command line use is often much faster, and works even when the machine
  23. doesn't agree to go to X for some reason.

  42.  
  43.  rpm -Uvh http://vernon.teraflops.com/rpm/RH6/ssh-1.2.30-1.i386.rpm
  44.  
  45. you can install our compiled SSH, the client goes to /usr/local/bin
  46. and server to /usr/local/sbin. Installs at least on RH6, of course. of RH7
  47. there are no problems with either.
