Red Hat users: RPM installation

Red Hat users: RPM installation

Post by Dmitri PASYUT » Tue, 08 Oct 1996 04:00:00

  I've recently installed RedHat linux 3.0.3. I performed the installation
from my DOS partition. What I have so far is only the base series, and I
would like to install some more packages. I've downloaded some packages to
my DOS partition. How can I install them from that partition without having
to install from scratch, if that's at all possible? I checked the manual
page for the rpm command, but with no insight. Thanks in advance

1. Red Hat 7.1 - Installing Red Hat packages after Red Hat is already installed.

How can I install packages that I forgot to install with the Red Hat
7.1 installation?

Here's my problem:
Various pieces of Red Hat keep saying that I am missing a file and
that it needs to be installed with a certain package (namely most of
the Kontrol Panel).  But I have been unsuccessful at finding where
this is done.  I am still a newbie with Linux, but I would assume that
there should be an "Add/Remove Programs" equivalent with Linux.

Please help!
