RPM Scripts

(replaced by OPS product)

Replaced by OPS product see this link to start OpenSourceBinaries.

Brief

The following scripts are provided to ease the effort of setting up rpm in the case sensitive directory structure and to automate the download and rpm install of AIX Toolbox RPMs.

  • setup.sh - setup rpm package manager and wget utility.
  • wwwinstall.sh - script that downloads groups of RPMs that are related or dependent.

Dependencies

Configuration

Download setup.sh script and wwwinstall.sh script.

--------
1) Create a download directory for all rpms and scripts
call qp2term
>mkdir /QOpenSys/download
--------
2) Click on 
setup.sh and wwwinstall.sh (above)
and ftp them to /QOpenSys/download (binary ftp), 
then change the scripts to executable (chmod below)
call qp2term
>cd /QOpenSys/download
>chmod +x *.sh
--------
3) Follow the Package Manager instructions for rpm and wget setup.

See PackageManager for details.

Example

No Open Source software is installed yet, only a directory /QOpenSys/download with setup.sh and wwwinstall.sh (nothing can be downloaded at this point). However, if you wish to look at the scripts to see what they do you can gain much insight into the actual mechanics of RPM download and install process over the web (and cut/paste if you want to create your own scripts).

call qp2term
>cd /QOpenSys/download
>wwwinstall --help
