Basic question regarding rpm naming convention.


Hi Guys,

Where would i find the list of distribution codes.
For example.
Code:
samba-32bit-3.4.2 -1.1.3.1.x8664.rpm
In above rpm file it is indicated that its release is 1.1.3.1 .

The rpm is meant to be run for opensuse.

Where would i get the linking of release number and distribution.

In simple words How would i guess distribution by merely looking at rpm name?

Most RPMs will have x86_64, not without the underscore. But with what you gave us, you can not figure out the distribution just by looking at that. If you are worried about what RPMs to get for your distro, use your package manager and/or navigate to your distro's website to grab the RPM's.

That indicates the rpm is pretty universal and will run on most of distribution running rpms.But the rpm with specific naming conventions only run for specific version of linux distributions.
