RPMs


Hi all,

There are some files which were installed by a RPM gone missing. rpm --verify shows the files as missing. When i try to run rpm -Uvh it does nothing except for saying the package is installed. rpm -F does not do anything but returns to the prompt. Kindly advice me on how to get the deleted files back.

Many thanks.

rpm -Uvh --replacepkgs <package>.rpm

.. is probably the solution.
The command : 'man rpm'
.. to know rpm options
.....
