Post install procedure for RPMs
I know this sounds like a really daft question but...what do you do (how do you access) what you have just installed with an RPM? I have just tried to load the APT RPM and all seemed to go ok (right click and 'install packages' ) - no problems reported - but how do I now use APT ie where is it? is does not appear on any menu. I am using Redhat 9. I have logged back on etc (refugee from MS!)

Tried the same with Synaptic - I am sure its there somewhere but where?

Sorry if this sounds really stupid.

APT is a sbin file i think (system bin)

in which case

open terminal
su to root

type apt

type man apt to get help on apt options

the command line is a great place to launch progs from
because you will get error messages if there are any to be seen


su to root
type updatedb to update the database

locate apt
