rpm for AIX adminstrator

As I go deeper and deeper into the LINUX woods it becomes apparent that I better learn something about them both – rpm and yum. So what are they? The first one was originally developed to install software packages from the local repositories aka someone downloaded the package or packages to the host prior to execution of rpm. The second one (Yellow Dog Updater and Modifier) has been created with a remote software repository in mind. You could say that rpm is like installp and yum sort of like SUMMA (both in AIX) except that rpm was later modified and now you can use it to install software package from a remote source – the plot thickens …..

What follows it the listing of examples of rpm in action.
