Well it is a family: Mandriva Mageia ROSA Unity PCLOS. Brothers and sisters living together in perfect harmony - so it deserved som space of its own.

Urpmi to pacman

Postby viking60 » 07 Apr 2013, 13:42

I have amused myself with comparing urpmi to pacman. Not that I want to start a "best in show" contest :hand: But simply to compare the functionality. This is not all that easy because I cannot remember the equivalent to pacman -Qi foo for urpmi etc...
(feel free to help me).
I the end this could be a useful place to start for urpmi users that try Arch or Manjaro for the first time. If you make an alias out of it you will feel right at home.
Mandrivas urpm

urpmi foo
urpme foo
urpmi --auto-update
urpmq --auto-orphans
urpme --auto-orphans
urpmq -i some_program and urpmq --requires-recursive foo
urpmq --list
Arch's pacman

pacman -S foo
pacman -R foo
pacman -Syu
pacman -Qtdg
pacman -Rs $(pacman -Qqdt)
pacman -Qi some_program
pacman -Sl

For the eager helpers:
pacman -Qi pacman gives the the folowing output for pacman with dependencies and all

I'd use two separate urpmq switches for package information and dependencies. If you combine them, it gets quite lengthy :)

Code: Select all

[[email protected] ~]$ urpmq -i urpmi
Name        : urpmi
Version     : 6.71
Release     : 8
Group       : System/Configuration/Packaging
Size        : 3554833                      Architecture: noarch
Source RPM  : urpmi-6.71-8.src.rpm
URL         : http://wiki.mandriva.com/en/Tools/urpmi
Summary     : Command-line software installation tools
Description :
urpmi is ROSA Linux's console-based software installation tool. You can
use it to install software from the console in the same way as you use the
graphical Install Software tool (rpmdrake) to install software from the
desktop. urpmi will follow package dependencies -- in other words, it will
install all the other software required by the software you ask it to
install -- and it's capable of obtaining packages from a variety of media,
including the ROSA Linux installation DVD, your local hard disk,
and remote sources such as web or FTP sites.

The Mandrake-developed urpm* tools provide the functionality of rpm, with some +/-, the major enhancement of urpm* being that uninstalled packages in configured repos can be queried(installed), as well, where rpm requires a package be installed or that full path to a package be provided.
So, man rpm and man urpm* are both handy resources for understanding rpm.

Thanks I'll add it above. I kind of had a feeling that it would be something lengthy. And yes man is my friend..

I guess that covers the most used , if you want them compared to yum and apt-get you can have a look here
