  RPM - LQWiki
The rpm file format is a container for distributing software as packages, either in pre-compiled binary or source code form.
RPM was developed by Red Hat and used to stand for Red Hat Package Manager before it was changed to the recursive acronym.
An RPM package can be installed either from an rpm file on the local filesystem, or from remote locations using apt or yum.

 Apt-rpm faq
On rpm based Linux systems, if you want to install a new application that requires other "dependencies" to be installed first, you have to manually install the dependencies yourself.
RPM is one of the major standards (the other being.deb), and one can't simply drop it.
RPM has features not available in.deb, such as the ability to keep different versions of the same package installed as long as they don't overlap in the filesystem.

RPM Package Manager (or RPM, originally called "Red Hat Package Manager") is a package management system primarily intended for Linux.
RPM is the baseline package format of the Linux Standard Base.

 Revolutions per minute - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Gramophone (phonograph) records typically rotate at 16, 33⅓, 45, or 78 rpm (CAV).
Audio CD rotation rates vary from about 500 rpm when reading the innermost data track, to 180 rpm when reading tracks near the outer edge (CLV).

 Using RPM
RPM has five basic modes of operation (not counting package building): installing, uninstalling, upgrading, querying, and verifying.
RPM packages can "depend" on other packages, which means that they require other packages to be installed in order to run properly.
RPM's freshen option checks the versions of the packages specified on the command line against the versions of packages that have already been installed on your system.

 Knitty: Summer 2006
Handpainted sock yarns often beg to be played with in non-stockinette ways, yet many stitch patterns become lost in bold handpaints or a yarn's character becomes mottled by extravagant motifs.
rpm was written to let both a simple pattern and a bold yarn teach the sock knitting world to sing in perfect harmony -- neither disturbing nor outdistancing one another.
rpm also offers the knitter with a snap and go soul the ease of choosing a heel and toe type to stretch the imagination, to suit the sensibilities, to sigh with relief over something other than stockinette...all in one spin.

 redhat.com | Red Hat Magazine - Better Living Through RPM, Part 1
And although it is true that RPM was originally created by Red Hat for its Red Hat Linux operating system, it has been adopted by a number of other Linux distributions because of its powerful capabilities and has become largely ubiquitous among commercial Linux distributions.
Since RPM knows so much about every package a system has installed, it stands to reason that it can perform some sanity checks (for instance, to see if a file was deleted that should be there).
As mentioned before, RPM packages can be thought of as fancy tarballs or zip files, so it stands to reason that it is possible to extract the contents of a package similar to those file formats.

In order to sign packages using GPG, rpm must be configured to run GPG and be able to find a key ring with the appropriate keys.

 Josh's Linux Guide - Using RPM   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Since RPM is a package manager, you can install, remove, build, rebuild, and view your packages.
RPM file names usually consist of the package name ("package"), the version ("1.2.3"), the build number or patch level by Red Hat ("4"), the architecture it was built to run on, ("i386"), and the "rpm" extension.
RPM will also complain about dependencies if you try to upgrade a bunch of packages.

 RPM package building guide
Rpm packages are usually built with a "spec file," which is a collection of text and shell scripts that build, install and describe a software program.
RPM expects to find the files that the package will install in $RPM_BUILD_ROOT, which rc has set to %{_tmppath}/rc-root ("%{_tmppath}" is a macro set by rpm which expands to the name of a directory for temporary files).
Rpm has a %configure macro, which is broken by design (it takes the directories from prefix/lib/rpm/macros, so it might misplace your files; and it only works with GNU configure).

 Linux RPMs for Python 2.4
The benefit of building binary RPMs in this way is that they are built using exactly the set of libraries and versions of packages that you have installed on your system.
Unfortunately, they didn't patch their python RPM to account for this, and they don't appear to be planning to release any errata to fix this.
Build new RPMs with "rpmbuild -ba python.spec" (where "python.spec" is the name of the.spec file you edited).

 Creating RPM's
RPM Howto, which has some useful information but is more roundabout and less specific.
Basically, RPM is a system for placing all the files for a software package in one object (the rpm file) with some information about where the files go, what type they are and what the package does.
This way, when you go to really install the resulting binary rpm, the files will end up in the correct place and rpm knows which files are part of the package.

 Transactions and Rollback with RPM | Linux Journal
RPM does not show any output from an erase, but if you look in the repackage directory after an erase, a repackaged package is there.
By default, RPM does not roll back a newly installed package; that is, it does not erase packages that were not on the system at the time of your upgrade.
RPM normally delivers packages using a best effort strategy, meaning if one or more RPMs fails to install, the remaining RPMs in the transaction still are installed.

 History of the 45 rpm Record
All of the earliest 78 rpm recordings were single sided, but double sided recordings were introduced firstly in Europe by the Columbia company.
The 78 rpm disc reigned supreme as the accepted recording medium for many years despite its tendency to break easily and the fact that longer works could not be listened to without breaks for disc changes (at 5 minute intervals for 12" discs).
These could hold as much sound as the 12" 78 rpm discs they were to replace, but were much smaller and attractive.
