yum install htmldoc = when you are trying to install htmldoc from redhat repo

and rpm -Uvh htmldoc  = you have download rpm file yourself in the server and then you are trying to install htmldoc by your self from that rpm file

main goal is same . but from two different way.

ok, thank you...

i did:
1.) rpm -Uvh fltk
2.) rpm -Uvh htmldoc

and installed 100%, you're legend!!

2 more things i need to clear up:
- how do we specify the installation folder, at the moment i am not sure where it was installed.
- how do we roll-back or uninstall these packages (to remove them totally).

many thanks

to rove manually rpm -e [ package name]

if there is any depdency, then you might have to delete that dependecy first by same rpm -e [dependency file name]


to find installation folder use : whereis [ package name ]

like if want to know where is php installed, i will say, : whereis php

thanks, the remove -e [package] works.

how do you manually specify the install folder, i.e. i dont want it to be installed into the default folder but manually specify one.

i have tried rpm -Uvh htmldoc <path>

but that didnt work...

thank you

oh you meant, you want to specify where it would be installed ??

ommmm i am afraid , you might not be able to do this, because, where program would be install it depends on the programmer who wrote the programm.

actually, its not 100 % true. if you can get source file then you might be able to[ then you will have to compile the programm by your self ] but if you use rpm package , then its not possible.


rpm -Uvh just installed the programm from the source file, where it would be installed it written in the programm, you would not be able to chagne.
