Hi, I'm running SuSE 9.0 Professional.
I have some questions about the rpm command.
#1. Does the rpm take into consideration of the order in which it will install rpm packages when multiple packages are specified ?
for example :
rpm -ivh p1.rpm p2.rpm p3.rpm
in which p1 requires p2 as dependency while p2 requires p3 as its depenency. Will rpm install p3 , then p2, then p1 successfully or generate an error msg ???
I met this problem while installing kde3.2. It seems that rpm lacks this feature or i miss some options for it (as I guess), anyone can confirm me about this ???
#2. Can we make rpm to continue to the installing process while it has a failed package ?
For example :
rpm -ivh p1.rpm p2.rpm
Assume that p1 has dependency problem, but p2 is ok. As my observation, the command above will generate an error msg and stop installing (even though p2 has no depenency). Is there any option that make rpm to ignore the dependency problem of p1 and continue install the package p2 ???
#3.After installing kde3.2, the xmms has some problem. The soundcard is ok, music with mplayer, kaffeine is fine. However, the xmms cannot play but generate a msg that some programs has blocked the soundcard output ???? It's strange since it happens only after kde3.2 is installed. It worked fine before. Anyway, I did not run any such program to block the soundcard driver.
Anyone has experience about above problem ???
I am looking forward to your replies. :confuse: Thanks before hands.
