Syntax question


Hi all folks,

What will be the correct syntax to install aaa.noarch.rpm? Is it same as;

rpm -ivh aaa.noarch.rpm

Thanks in advance.

B.R.

noarch simply means that the package will work on any computer architecture versus a package that works only on Intel 686 or DEC Alpha for example. You install a noarch package using the same rpm commands as you would for any other architecture.

Hi,

Noted. Thanks for your advice.

Do you know what will be the correct syntax to check md5sum of a packing. e.g.

$ md5sum -c shorewall-1.4.7-1.noarch.rpm.md5
md5sum: shorewall-1.4.7-1.noarch.rpm.md5: No such file or directory

$ md5sum -c shorewall-1.4.7.tgz.md5
md5sum: shorewall-1.4.7.tgz.md5: No such file or directory

the md5sum tag is in the same directory.

I have no idea what will be the correct syntax. It works for iso image.

B.R.

" have no idea what will be the correct syntax. It works for iso image."

Try giving the complete path name.



$ md5sum -c /root/mydata/shorewall-1.4.7.tgz.md5

Hi

I downloaded the package both in rpm and tgz format together with relevant md5sum file to the same folder. I can run

$ md5sum AAA.rpm

or

$ md5sum AAA.tgz

to compare their output against with the md5sum file. But

$ md5sum -c AAA.rpm.md5

and

$ md5sum -c AAA.tgz.md5

could not work.

I am looking whether there is a shortcut similart to

$ md5sum -c AAA.iso.md5

generating OK or NOT instead of comparing the output

B.R.
