RPM/YUM Tips on OS/2-eCS
This are some RPM/YUM general tips that I need to write somewhere to don't forget them.
- 1 List repository content
- 2 Install something
- 3 Reinstall Something
- 4 Update all the stuff you have installed
- 5 Install RPM
- 6 Installing the Netlabs Experimental Repository
- 7 Where can I get the binary files of the netlabs repository if I don't use RPM
- 8 Clean
- 9 Check
- 10 RebuildDB
- 11 Installation
- 12 Unpacking a RPM file
- 13 Troubleshooting
List repository content
or search something more specifically like the "gcc" available
yum list gcc*
yum install <put-the-name-here>
yum install libc
Ex. with several packaged:
yum install libc gcc-4.4.4 gcc-4.7.3 openssl curl libjpeg libxslt libicu zlib libxml2 mmap pthread urpo libstdc++6
yum install <put-the-name-here>
yum reinstall coreutils
Update all the stuff you have installed
Sometimes RPM did not get automatically updated or installed. You can manually install them again with:
yum install rpm
Installing the Netlabs Experimental Repository
There is other repository for netlabs experimental stuff. You can use it under your risk.
This repository can be installed do running from a command line the following:
yum install netlabs-exp
It can also be set manually by creating a file under:
[netlabs-exp] name=Netlabs experimental repository $releasever - $basearch baseurl=http://rpm.netlabs.org/experimental/$releasever/$basearch/ enabled=1
Where can I get the binary files of the netlabs repository if I don't use RPM
The netlabs release and experimental repositories files are available on the following site:
Those can be downloaded as zip files.
yum clean all
This command check is the dependencies of the packaged are installed correctly.
If your RPM database got corrupted you can use:
This is a quick reminder on how you have to install YUM.
- Install YUM Bootstrap WPI.
- Check your paths as it ask on the readme.
- Maybe it can be good to reboot.
- Run YUM bootstrap console.
- Run "yum install yum rpm".
- Uninstall with WarpIN the YUM bootstrap.
Just to validate, open an OS/2 console and run "yum" and "yum list" to see you don't have any errors.
Unpacking a RPM file
If you have a .rpm file and you don't want to install it, and just unpack it to review its contents you can use the rpm2cpio command like:
rpm2cpio peg-e-1.2.7-1.i686.rpm | cpio -idmv
Some of the quick tips:
- Review any duplicated files on the Libpath between X:\ecs\dll and x:\usr
- Make a "yum clean all", sometime it works.
Error: No such table: packages
If you get this error maybe a "yum clean all" can help a little bit.

Check the duplicated files on the LIBPATH (check on eComStation Kernel on System Setup). There can be duplicated DLLs between x:\eCS\DLL and x:\usr\lib
