AIXInstallRPM

Installing an RPM package on an AIX server

This is really simple, and much easier than the "traditional" methods detailed in AIXInstallSoftwarePackage.

Compared to the AIX installation tools, RPM is a pleasure to use... And I never thought I would say that of RPM! :-)

rpm --install --percent -vvvvv ./tar-1.14-2.aix5.1.ppc.rpm

Simple, right?

Of course, the normal RPM commands apply. To check if the above command worked, you could, for instance:

rpm -qa | grep -i tar
