How to install RPM's (for dummies)

Hey Guys,

I see that many RPM’s have been built to install into FreePBX. Can someone help me with how to install them?? I have never used RPM before and are very interested in the FOP2 RPM.

With thanks

well doing a simple yum listall command with grepping for fop2 shows this.

[[email protected] ~]# yum list all | grep fop2
fop2-freepbx.i386 2-21 pbx

so the command would be yum install fop2-freepbx

yum install name so for example

yum install fop2 or whatever the RPM name is

[[email protected] ~]# yum install fop2
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, kmod
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
Setting up Install Process
No package fop2 available.
Nothing to do
