Re: Find latest RPM in directory

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


If there are characters like '-' in part of package name you can
improve this script by replacing

 for x in `ls -1 | cut -f1 -d '-' | sort | uniq`

 with

for x in `ls -1 | sed -e "s/-[0-9]/@/g" | cut -f1 -d '@' | sort | uniq`

so it will cut of part behind dash if there are numbers (version
number) after dash.
