I have a few package installation related questions concerning RPM, YUM and CentOS and getting GCC installed:
I've mounted my distribution media on my CentOS 5.2 machine but I can't seem to work out how to point RPM at the media and use that instead of looking to the internet. All the examples I've googled for appear to assume downloading the RPM's from the internet.
What does the
-ivhswitch combo do (I'm guessing -i is for install)? I did
man rpmbut the switch count and combinations blew my mind.
Should I be using YUM instead of RPM?
