I've two packages available on CentOS 7 system:

  1. package-6.34-1.el7.i686.rpm (32-bit)
  2. package-6.34-1.el7.x86_64.rpm (64-bit)

I'm looking for a command to fetch the appropriate package full name based on the OS version/architecture (32/64bit).

E.g., when I query from a 64bit OS I should get the latest rpm with full name package-6.34-1.el7.x86_64.rpm, as I need to install package with rpm command:

rpm -i --replacefiles <packagename>.rpm

rpm -i package-6.34-1.el7.$(uname -m).rpm


yum install package-6.34-1.el7.$(uname -m).rpm

Though yum should automatically infer the release (el7) and architecture if you provide it yum install package and you're looking for the latest version in your configured repositories.

  • You should also have the yum line as well yum install package-6.34-1.el7.$(uname -m).rpm – thebtm Mar 1 '18 at 21:41
