Maximum RPM: Taking the Red Hat Package Manager to the Limit
by Edward C. Bailey
Publisher: Red Hat, Inc. 2000
Number of pages: 178
This is a book about the Red Hat Package Manager (RPM). It is divided into two major sections. The first section is for anyone that needs to know how to use RPM on their system. In the book's second half, we'll be covering all there is to know about building packages using RPM. Since software engineering on Linux and UNIX systems requires in-depth knowledge of the operating system, available tools, and basic programming concepts, we're going to assume that the reader has sufficient background in these areas.
