    How to compile packages (from source)

    FOr installing RPMs generally you have to do "rpm -Ivh xyz.rpm"

    For updating an already installed package "rpm -Uvh xyz.rpm"

    See man pages for more switches. (one of the most handy ones is --force)

    I never faced any dependencies ever since i migrated to Debian. You see, why debian people are so lazy, and never worry about dependencies...

    just an apt-get takes away all worries
    # apt-get update
    # apt-get install package_name
