View Full Version : Need "-U" option for Linux RPM Package action
08-02-2004, 10:28 AM
I'm developing a setup (ISMP 5.x style created in IS X )for a product that previously shipped only as RPMs, so for upgrade installations I'd like to upgrade the the installed RPMs rather than uninstall old/install new. It looks like the Linux RPM Package will not upgrade an installed RPM. It would be very helpful if the Linux RPM Package action offered the option to execute the rpm "-U" option. Is there any chance this could be done in the near future?

I'm not sure that this could be done in the "near future", but I will create a new feature request. For the time being, I would recomment that you use the execte process bean to launch the "rpm" command, passing "-U" and the rpm name in as arguments. Of course, you will need to install the rpm using a files bean, to be sure that it is available for the exec action bean.

Thanks. I'm doing just what you suggested, but it won't have the package archiving/unarchiving functionality that makes the Linux RPM Package action bean so useful.
Thanks again, and keep up the good work.
