Need help in checking an rpm and install or uninstall it

Hi all ,

I am able to check the rpm of it installed or not and send the report but I would like to add option that if rpm present of not then I can install or uninstall it as per need.

Thanks to help !

You could have something like:
# $rpmname is name of rpm to manage
if rpm -qa | grep -q $rpmname; then
  echo "rpm $rpmname is installed"
  echo "Do you want to uninstall it?"
  read ans
  if [ "$ans" = "y" ] || [ "$ans" = "Y" ]; then
    rpm -e $rpmname
  fi
else
  # repeat above but offer to install rpm
fi

Open in new window

This assumes that the response is "y" or "Y" for "yes", and anything else means "no".
