Re: System of Fedora Core (yum vs. rpm)

One question:

Will yum pass to rpm relocation information?  I want to move packages to a different install directory for space reasons.
If so, what do I do in yum.conf?

Thank you.

RPM will install, or erase rpm files, IF you have all of the necessary
dependencies (packages which are required by the package you are

YUM finds those dependencies and install all needed packages as one unit
