Question no distro, custom build need help with rpms


i have two rpm files that i need to pscp over to a custom built stripped down Linux based appliance. how do i install them? please spell out the commands, i am pretty rusty

also i should say that i tried to do a 'man rpm' and there is not a man page. for anything. stripped down is an understatement. my only experience with RPM's is through Redhat where you are connecting to their servers to pull them down and install. in this situation, once i pscp them over from the windows box, where do i put them? just anywhere, or do they have to go into a specific directory pertaining to what they contain?? i have no help from the manufacturer... thx for any help i can get!

Put them anywhere, probable local user directory is fine. Then su to root and navigate to users directory.

The command is as follows

Code:
root@localhost#  rpm -ivh packagename.1.1.rpm otherpackge.2.0.rpm
The i = install, v=verbose and h=hash ( hashes let you see the progress of the install ).

thank you for that, it seems to have worked. i still get one error that i don't recognize - but i think it's something i will have to take up with the manufacturer.

does it look ok to you?


[root@localhost admin]# rpm -ivh [package1.1].rpm [package2.2].rpm
warning: [package1.1].rpm: V3 RSA/MD5 signature: NOKEY, key ID 2 43a1329

That is to do with authenticating rpm files. RPM files for some distros have signature keys, which verifies source of file and insures package integrity. Not always best to ignore, but I usually do. It does look like is installed successfully.
