what's the command for installing rpm again?


Hello All:

What's the command for installing an rpm file? Is it 'rpm -imvf filename' ?
I'm installing a download mgr and need to get going.

Thanks,

ergo_sum

I don't know what the 'm' switch is, but otherwise, yep, that's it.

rpm -ivh <package>

i = install
v = verbose
h = show a progress bar made of hashes
