As posted to the rpm-list:
Jeff Johnson (jbj@JBJ.ORG) Tue, 20 Apr 1999 12:17:10 -0400 (EDT) The final (first?:-) release of rpm 3.0 is now available at ftp://ftp.rpm.org/pub/rpm/dist/rpm-3.0.x/rpm-3.0-* The release numbers (4.2, 5.2, 6.0) indicate the version of Red Hat Linux for which the package has been built. This version is also available through anonymous cvs: cvs -d :pserver:firstname.lastname@example.org:/cvs/devel login (no password, just carriage return) cvs -d :pserver:email@example.com:/cvs/devel get rpm cd rpm This version is identical to that which will be on Red Hat 6.0. If you do install rpm-3.0 on a system that uses/used rpm-2.5.x, you will have to do rpm --rebuilddb because the database format has changed. You will also have to do rpm --rebuilddb if/when you go back to rpm-2.5.x. ======================================================================== Here are 2 FAQ for experienced users of rpm: 1) --rcfile works differently. Old way: rpm --rcfile whatever New way: rpm --rcfile /usr/lib/rpm/rpmrc:whatever 2) topdir (and other rpmrc configurables) work differently. Old way: ~/.rpmrc contains topdir: whatever New way: /usr/lib/rpm/rpmrc contains macrofiles: /usr/lib/rpm/macros: ... :~/.rpmmacros ~/.rpmmacros contains %_topdir whatever 73 de Jeff -- Jeff Johnson ARS N3NPQ firstname.lastname@example.org (email@example.com) Chapel Hill, NC
