How do I install and manage RPMs?


How do I manage the dependencies while manually downloading and installing these rpm files? Googling the names of the rpm files results in differently-named rpm files. I cannot use yum install because this is a development server that is not yet directly connected to the internet.

How do I manage the dependencies in order to successfully install WPA_supplicant on the CentOS 7 development server?


As a first attempt, I downloaded wpa_supplicant-2.4-4.2.x86_64.rpm to a devbox from this link and I copied the rpm file to the development server, which is not connected to any other machine or network. Then on the development server, I tried the following:

[root@localhost wpa_supplicant_rpm_files]# rpm -Uvh wpa_supplicant-2.4-4.2.x86_64.rpm warning: wpa_supplicant-2.4-4.2.x86_64.rpm: Header V3 RSA/SHA256 Signature, key ID 3dbdc284: NOKEY error: Failed dependencies: is needed by wpa_supplicant-2.4-4.2.x86_64 ...

This document discusses how to install Red Hat Program Manager (RPM) and other AIX RPM packages into the Portable Applications Solution Environment (PASE).

The information discussed in this document is taken from the following third-party Web site:

What is RPM?
The Red Hat Program Manager ( RPM) is a powerful command line driven package management system capable of installing, uninstalling, verifying, querying, and updating computer software packages. All of the PASE/AIX Open Source binary packages featured in the URL above have been packaged by RPM and can be found at the IBM AIX Toolbox RPMs FTP site.

Refer to the OpenSourceBinaries link for the latest information on RPMs in the IBM i PASE environment.

sorry i'm a complete newb with all this server stuff...

I have access to my server through cPanel and WHM.

I'd like to install JungleDisk, who provide .RPM, .DEB and .TAR for installing their server software.

Their documentation says this:

Package files are available for installing to RedHat and Debian based distributions (e.g., Fedora, CentOS, Ubuntu, etc.). Others can manually install the application using the tar file.

My server has this

cPanel 11.25.0-R46156 - WHM 11.25.0 - X 3.9 CENTOS 5.5 i686 xen pv

If i go WHM > install an RPM JungleDisk is not in the list of available RPMs (even after i Rebuild RPM Database).

So, JungleDisk offers me to download either .DEB, .TAR or .RPM, i assume i need to FTP one of these to my server somewhere, and then...

RPM or Red Hat Package Manager is the default package management solution for Linux distributions based on Red Hat Linux. It’s a pretty useful way to easily install, upgrade, and un-install packages on Linux machines. I remember the days when every Linux package had to be compiled. Let’s see how to perform some basic tasks with RPM.

List All Packages

Before installing a new package or upgrading and old one you sometimes want to check to make sure that it isn’t already installed. Here’s how you can get a list of all installed RPM packages:

# rpm -qa


Now a list of this kind can be pretty confusing. What I like to do is use this command along with grep. I filter the search with the package I’m looking for. So, if I’m trying to check if a certain PHP package is installed I would run the following search:

RPM was the most famous way of installing packages on a Red Hat based linux box, nowadays other distros are also using RPM to support their software, Suse and Mandriva fall in the zone. RPM stands for Red Hat Package Manager. RPM lets you install a package, upgrade and uninstall the same. It also allows a querying functionality which lets one know about already packages installed on the system.

RPM packages are those with a .rpm extension. RPM packages contains the actual software to be installed and other files that are needed to carry out its installation. RPM packages are distributed distro specifically. Any attempt to install one distro-specific package on another distro might result in undesired consequences. You have been warned !

Graphical installation tools install a package in few clicks but here discussed is old school command line method which has its own legacy.

From here on, you need to have root’s privileges.

Ok I did not see your edit

No this file is the debugger, which I am not installing (at the moment...) Duplicated files comes really from "intel-cprof110069e-11.0-1.x86_64.rpm" (fortran compiler) and "intel-cproc110069e-11.0-1.x86_64.rpm" (c/c++ compiler) Note the bolded "f" and "c" as the only difference in the filename...

As a server admin, you people must have the knowledge of how to manage Linux RPMs via command line. Redhat Package Manager is abbreviated as RPM. Managing Linux packages via RPM commands should be a little tougher than managing it via YUM.

Using yum command should be better than rpm command after Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5, since it can update local yum database properly. RPM deals with .rpm files, which contains the actual information about the packages such as: what it is, from where it comes, dependencies info, version info etc.

To install a package via RPM command, you need to download it on your local machine or Server first. You can download it from the internet and then install it simply via Command Line Interface (CLI).

Here I going to introduce some basic and commonly using RPM commands. You an apply this to your Twin Bee servers.

Ansible by default manages machines over the SSH protocol.

Once Ansible is installed, it will not add a database, and there will be no daemons to start or keep running. You only need to install it on one machine (which could easily be a laptop) and it can manage an entire fleet of remote machines from that central point. When Ansible manages remote machines, it does not leave software installed or running on them, so there’s no real question about how to upgrade Ansible when moving to a new version.

Because it runs so easily from source and does not require any installation of software on remote machines, many users will actually track the development version.

Ansible’s release cycles are usually about four months long. Due to this short release cycle, minor bugs will generally be fixed in the next release versus maintaining backports on the stable branch. Major bugs will still have maintenance releases when needed, though these are infrequent.

This post will cover installing and basic configuration of PostgreSQL 9.x on CentOS.

We will install PostgreSQL 9 using the PostgreSQL repository and yum.

The same procedure can be used to install PostgreSQL 9 on Red Hat and Fedora using the appropriate rpm.

Optionally, we'll also see how to install PostGIS.

As the directory structure of PostgreSQL has changed with the release of PostgreSQL 9, we will also look a look at how we can create symlinks to make life easier when installing software or modules that still expect the old directory structure.

Finally, for Webmin users, we will see how to configuring Webmin to manage PostgreSQL 9.

I am using CentOS 6, but the same procedure works for CentOS 5. Finally, if you are using Webmin, we will also show how to configure Webmin to manage PostgreSQL 9.

With the release of PostgreSQL 9, the directory structure of PostgreSQL has changed.

We will also creating symlinks...
