    How in the world do you use RPMs?

    1) Where do you FTP them to on your server (assuming you have Root access)?

    2) How do you extract them?

    3) Where do they install to (/usr/local/ or somewhere else)?

    Thanks a ton!

    1) Anywhere
    2) rpm -i filename.rpm
    3) each individual rpm has it's own settings on where to install to

    Follow-UP

    Seems easy enough.
    Just a follow-up question:

    1) How do you list the RPMs on the server?

    I'm not sure actually, I know how to rebuild the rpm database (rpm --rebuilddb), but not how to view the database.

    Oh, and just a FYI - I mistyped the rpm command in my reply above. It's rpm -i filename.rpm to install it.

    No wonder my RPMs were not openning!

    OK, I looked around and the command to see the packages on your server is "rpm -qa" :)
