installed rpm packages database: explicit and dependency packages
Hi. In rpm systems like Redhat, are explicitly installed packages and dependency packages marked differently?
They're not marked differently; that's just the yum tool showing you
a) what you asked for
b) what extras it will need to fulfil your request
Re removal; you can try
Unfortunately, the removal dependency calculation sometimes gets a bit carried away and wants to remove even distantly related stuff. You may have to use 'rpm -e git' instead.
Best to have a good read up of those tools
and on RHEL5 / CentOS5 /ScientificLinux 5 ( el5)
be VERY careful with "rpmforge" !!! the (el5.rf) rf part
"rpmforge" is KNOWN to be incompatible with upstream Red Hat !!!
-- not a warning but a MUST DO!!! --
install and CONFIGURE "yum-priorities " plugin!!!!
-- this is a MUST DO ,or you can and WILL FUBAR ( look it up) the RHEL 5 install
RHEL6 is better but 5 is a MESS when it comes to the third party repos
heed all the warnings!!!
also you might NOT want to do this
That machine doesn't have internet
JohnVV is correct, the rf repos do have issues with the RHEL installed pkgs.
At the very least, put that priority plugin in http://www.ehowstuff.com/how-to-inst...hel-6centos-6/, although you should be able to get most if not all you want from the RH repos.
If you can't connect it to the net, use this https://code.google.com/p/iredmail/w...Yum_Repository to create a local repo from the install media.
