Product: Maximum RPM, Further Information

Written by Edward Bailey
April 1997

Further Information:

Written in close cooperation with Marc Ewing and Erik Troan, the developers of the RPM technology, Maximum RPM is the official, definitive technical reference to the RPM system. It provides accurate and detailed coverage of RPM's history, philosophy, usage, and internals, from both the user and packager perspectives.

New users of RPM will appreciate the gentle introduction to package management as well as the step-by-step examples of RPM in daily use. You'll learn how to install and upgrade packages, perform sophisticated RPM database queries, and verify your RPM-based system.

In addition to covering RPM from the user perspective, Maximum RPM tells you how to build your own RPM packages. You'll learn the right way to build RPM packages that are easy to use and maintain. For seasoned RPM packagers, this volume covers many advanced packaging techniques, including:

RPM currently runs on Linux, IRIX, Solaris, SunOS, AIX, HP/UX, AmigaOS, and FreeBSD, and is quickly becoming the de-facto packaging standard for free software on the Internet.
