Hello,

Thanks very much for your bug report.

However, the chapter 1 is meant just as an introduction to RPM packaging (which is actually the title of the chapter), so it just provides an overview of RPM advantages.

Particular procedures, for example how to install, reinstall, remove, upgrade and verify packages, or sign packages, are described in detail elsewhere. 

See e.g. 

https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-us/red_hat_enterprise_linux/8/html-single/configuring_basic_system_settings/index#installing-software-with-yum_configuring-basic-system-settings

or 

https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-us/red_hat_enterprise_linux/8/html/packaging_and_distributing_software/advanced-topics#signing-packages_advanced-topics

The detailed description of the procedures mentions it if you need to have root privileges.

So for the sake of better readability, these details are not included for particular items in the Introduction to RPM packaging chapter.


Thank you very much!

Marie
