RedHat RPM System
I'm working with a new dedicated server that I am renting, it is running RedHat Linux 9. I'm used to Slackware 9.1 and compiling everything from source...
Using the RPM system, is there a way to generate a listing of all the RPM's on the system? Furthermore, I've installed Apache from source creating two Apache installs (one from the original RPM, one from the source install). If I uninstall the Apache RPM, will my source install remain untouched?
Also, is compiling programs from source a good idea on a RedHat system? Or should I try to use RPM's? Or does it even matter?
