Command to install RPMs

Hi,

1) the straight and simplest options for installing an rpm file are,
i , v and h.

i - install
v - verbose
h - hash ; displays hashes till the installation completes.

So ur command is (as root),
rpm -ivh <rpmfilename>

2) If the installation program prompts for any information needed by that application, enter it.

Regards,
Harsha.
