rpm is definitely the worst package manager out there. It’s way to difficult to use. For instance, given a rpm how do you list the files in it?
rpm --list --file my.rpm
I simply get the rpm help screen again. Hmmm, I guess it’s time to type
I search for –list and find that you must specify –query and –package. Ok that makes sense. So I type in
rpm -qlp my.rpm
. Ah so package is different than file.
