rpm issue


Hi,

I am following an installation HowTo and it says about using rpm. I have been using rpm for wuite some time but I am having to look for the rpm on a web site then use

rpm -ivh http://someWebSite/myrpm.rpm

but I would like to use

rpm -ivh myrpm.rpm

and not have to look for the website and copy it in within the command line. Is there a conf file or something I can specify either the cdroms or a website so I dont have to find it everytime?

Using RH 3

Thank you
Regards
Smurff

If the RPM is one that's in the main Red Hat repository, you can use
Code:
up2date -i myrpm
. If you'd like to install arbitrary rpms in this manner, you should look into yum or apt-get, which have much more comprehensive repositories.
