Updating rpm commands
RPM is a RPM Package Manager (originally called Red Hat Package Manager).Both Novell Suse Linux and Red Hat Linux support (Fedora Linux) uses rpm.Let’s say you would like to do a dependency check before installing or upgrading a package.For example, use the following command to check the dependencies of Bit Torrent-5.2.2-1-Python2.4.package.The signature confirms that the package was signed by an authorized party.For example, if the verification of the signature fails, an error message such as the following is displayed: RPM packages may sometimes depend on other packages, which means that they require other packages to be installed to run properly.
RPM (Red Hat Package Manager) is an default open source and most popular package management utility for Red Hat based systems like (RHEL, Cent OS and Fedora).Always check the PGP signature of packages before installing them on your Linux systems and make sure its integrity and origin is OK.Use the following command with –checksig (check signature) option to check the signature of a package called pidgin.We will be enabling this as part of the next phase. Instead, please watch for an announcement that will be sent to the translators mailing list. rpm is a powerful Package Manager for Red Hat, Suse and Fedora Linux.
