rpm -Uvh or -ivh?


Does -Uvh check for previous versions of the rpm and upgrades as nessesary?

Or does it do the same job as -ivh and installs just the same?

Thanks,
Chris

from man rpm:

Quote:
rpm {-U|--upgrade} [install-options] PACKAGE_FILE ...

This upgrades or installs the package currently installed to a newer ver-
sion. This is the same as install, except all other version(s) of the
package are removed after the new package is installed.
