RPM is the package management program used by Fedora, Red Hat Enterprise Linux and other distributions.

[edit] Articles

[edit] Getting the Source

The primary methods of distributing the rpm source are source RPMs in the Fedora Core development tree and CVS. To access CVS, set your CVSROOT to :pserver:anonymous@cvs.rpm.org:/cvs/devel and checkout the rpm module. The main branch of focus at the moment is rpm-4_4

[edit] Reporting Problems

If you are having difficulty installing, please file the problem report with your distribution vendor. Volunteer support can also be recieved on #rpm on freenode.
