Five-seven years ago, rpm was, hands down, the technically superior package management system. But it failed to keep up with the times. Rather than fixing fundamental defects in rpm, instead they put a big layer of makeup on it: yum, and its plugins. But it's a still a big piece of turd underneath, and it's getting to the point where no amount of makeup will help.

Tell me how you can install/upgrade packages, with it's dependencies just using rpm (no yum, smart or apt)?
