Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

We have a local repository, and I recently used rpmbuild -bb to build an rpm. I copied it over to the RPMS subdir where all the other rpms are, but it doesn't show up when I do a 'yum update pkgname' on a server. Do I have to somehow tell the repository that I put some new rpms there? Is there a tool to do this, or do I just vi a file and add the rpm names?
We already have a local directory with rpms, and it's already in our yum configuration so that when we do a 'yum update|install $pkgname' it will look in this repository. The issue I'm having is that I copied an rpm into that directory, and yum doesn't seem to know that. When I try 'yum update $pkgname', it says that I already have the latest version(the rpm I build is a newer version).
I could conceivable run rpm -Uvh /path/to/$pkgname, but that kinda get's troublesome with dependencies and all, and we've established that we want to use yum for this.
