[SOLVED]dnf or urpm

Postby Spinnifex » Nov 30th, '19, 17:50

Hello

Since I am new to mageia and coming from fedora I usually run dnf or rpm for package management.
Now I stumble upon urpm{i|e} .
What should I use to install/remove programs and why? beside using mcc.

regards,

Spinni

Welcome to Mageia.

if you are familiar with dnf, there is no difference from using dnf in Fedora / Redhat.

if you want to familiarise yourself with urmp then basically:

to install:
Code: Select all
urpmi package_name
urpmi(nstall)

to uninstall
Code: Select all
urpme package_name
urpme(rase)

see also: https://wiki.mageia.org/en/Installing_a ... g_software.

again, welcome and enjoy learning about Mageia

meant to add you can string multiple packages together for a batch install (or removal),
Code: Select all
urpmi package_name package_name package_name ...etc

you would typically have the entire string of packages saved in a text file and just copy /paste into a terminal after your new install.
(saved on a spare partition or external storage medium)
