Console frontend for RPMs

Hey all,

There is any 'package manager' builtin on RedHat linux? I know it's coming with some GUI one, but there's anything for console?

Also, there's any external good console frontend manager for RPMs?

10x a lot.

Well, there is rpm. Try 'man rpm' for how to use it and any related utilities. For example:

rpm -i foo.rpm (installs foo.rpm)
rpm -e foo (removes foo)
rpm -qa (displays all installed rpms)

As for a front-end, I have not used any; rpm is capable of doing just about everything you might need, aside from having a GUI of some kind.
