1. Is there a batch install command for rpms? when there is dependecies, i hate having to type rpm -i filename.rpm for each one,specialy when there are alot.if i could do a whole folder, that would be great.
2. is there a way to get rid of the icons on my desktop?maybe just put my trash/home folder links on a panel?
3.What is the best p2p program for linux?
1. that can be handled by organization. make sure you download the app rpm and all
of it's dependancies in their own dedicated directory and then cd to that directory and use the wildcard in the command:
rpm -ivh --force --nodeps *.rpm
if upgrading an already installed package, use:
rpm -Uvh --force --nodeps *.rpm
2. what desktop manager? never heard of a links panel either. but most icons can just be deleted from the desktop if you don't want them. i wouldn't get rid of home or trash though. pretty convenient to have them on the desktop. but in kde, you can right click on the taskbar and add a button for the home directory. don't know about the trash though.
3. tried most of the p2p for linux like lopster, xmule, gtk-gnutella, limewire, blah blah blah... none worked better than winmx in windows, so i got wine up and running for winmx.
