Commands for Install/Uninstall/And everything else experienced user read plz
Hey, I am having a hard time with linux because most install readme files don't give a detailed explanation and I always get errors when installing because I don't know the magic keys to type to make anything work. So far I have redhat 9.0 set up and thats as far as I have gotten (after many reinstalls and discovering the usefullness of the user accounts).
Anyway, I would like to know if there were any good websites that provides good information on how to install programs in linux, and a few key commands that everybody should know.
If anybody reading this knows any commands that are frequently used to install rpms tgz and any other file please tell me.
I am trying to install checkinstall now so that I can uninstall programs I dont need, but I can't install anything.
So that this post is for a broader base than only checkinstall if anybody knows how to install things in linux, please say things like tar -zxvf program.rpm (so people can figure out it works for other things than checkinstall.
What I am looking for is any keys that I can use to install programs, and any keys that would be useful to know for future refrences as well.
