Although RPM packages are typically installed via command line, some Linux distributions have GUI-based package managers, like gnomerpm. Some distributions will also allow for double-clicking the RPM file in a directory browser, which will invoke RPM with default arguments.

If you have already unpacked the .rpm, you can then run the following command to begin the GUI-based installer:

Code Block
themeConfluence
sudo /opt/pixar/RenderMan-Installer/bin/RenderManInstaller

 

During the installation process, you will first be given a chance to select a root directory. By default, this location is /Applications/Pixar This will become the root directory for all of the software components listed above.
