Here's some basic commands, if you need anything more
detailed see the man page or a suitable HOWTO document.
installing a package:
rpm -Uvh package.rpm
removing a package:
rpm -e package_name
that should get you started....

Subject: [ILUG] packages?
Doing a 'nixer' for friend, he has Red Hat 7 system with all manner
of shite installed on it, its not urgent at all, but since I have a
free second I tought I would ask here..
Question is if there is a standard way of removing
'packages' - ala Solaris and pkgrm..
I'm not aware of such a package, I would think it is simply finding
offending package file by file
please let me be wrong..
