Local installation of .rpms using YUM
I'm asking this question cautiously because I don't want to get this wrong.
I have a program_name.rpm file saved locally on my server (CentOS 6.5).
I have installed it previously just by navigating to it and using yum install program_name.rpm which worked fine but it didn't give me any option to specify where it is installed.
Is it possible to install this rpm to /opt/some_directory instead of it's default install location?
rpm -ivh package.rpm
If you want to install it on different place use:
rpm -ivh -r /new/path package.rpm
but be aware under new root will be recreated the directory structure from package
To clarify: yum is wrapper around rpm. rpm is the main program to manage packaged in RHEL, SuSE, CentOS and other distributions
Oh I always thought yum was based on rpm, never realized it was a wrapper, thanks for all your help
