rpm question

This might be a dumb question but my being new at this rpm stuff makes me ask it. lol.

I want to install ant and I saw these 2 packages:


now besides the version differences, what is the jpp on the second? Is there an advantage to using jpp ones? When I do

rpm -ivh --test ant-1.5.4-2jpp.noarch.rpm

I do not get any dependency problems, however, when I do:

rpm -ivh --test ant-1.5.2-30.i386.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
ant-core = 1.5.2-30 is needed by ant-1.5.2-30
bcel >= 5.0-14 is needed by ant-1.5.2-30
ecj >= 2.1.3-2 is needed by ant-1.5.2-30 is needed by ant-1.5.2-30
libgcj >= 3.4.0 is needed by ant-1.5.2-30 is needed by ant-1.5.2-30
xalan-j >= 2.4.1-15 is needed by ant-1.5.2-30
xerces-j >= 2.2.1-17 is needed by ant-1.5.2-30

This might be a dumb question, but I just want to learn more about this. Thanks

You can use rpm -qpi <file.rpm> to find out what an uninstalled rpm package provides.
