RPM installation example
To install package foo-1.2-3, try this:
rpm -i --test foo-1.2-3.i386.rpm
If the prompt returns with nothing else printed on the terminal, then the test passes!
Now, really perform the installation of the package:
rpm -i foo-1.2-3.i386.rpm
Silence indicates that the installation was a success!
Double check by typing: "rpm -qa | grep foo"
