rpm includes help


ok, i'm not very into the rpm command. i just need a little help here. i'm trying to install a package. namely ifstat. it says there are failed dependencies, but when i do a whereis [package] they're all there. how does the rpm command search for these packages and is there a ways to include these (when i know the correct location) packages when i issue the command?

if those pkgs are not installed but just sitting there as rpms you'll need to:

rpm pkg_1.rpm pkg_.rpm ...etc

list 'em all and then hit enter. as root of course.

Try "rpm -Uvh packagename.rpm"
http://ftp.crihan.fr/mirrors/ftp.red...-rpm-1.0/html/

Gives the best explanation of the RPM I've found.

run:

#rpm updatedb

Check to see then with:

#rpm -qa |grep package_name #EDIT: DO NOT put the .rpm extention on the pkg name and use the wild card '*' after the pkg name like

#rpm -qa|grep gnome*

post back with results.
