urpmi - rpm wrapper making installs easier for the user
You can compare rpm vs. urpmi with insmod vs. modprobe or dpkg vs apt-get
All users belonging to group urpmi are allowed to install packages.
Just launch urpmi followed by what you think is the name of the package(s), and urpmi will:
- Propose different package names if availables and quit.
- If only one corresponding package is found, check whether dependencies are already installed, or not.
- If not, propose to install the dependencies and then install all required dependencies and the package.
Note that urpmi handle installations from various medias (ftp, http, local and nfs volumes, removable medias such as CDROMs) and is able to install dependencies from a media different from the package's media. If necessary, urpmi asks you to insert the required media.
To add a new media containing rpms run urpmi.addmedia.
To remove a media use urpmi.removemedia.
To update the packages list (for example when the ftp archive changed) use urpmi.update.
