I'd like to use the command dpkg in my PHP script (using exec).

I'm running CentOS. Is there a way I can install the command dpkg on there?

Step by step guide would be fantastic.

with centos you should be using yum, since it is the package manager of centos.

dpkg is for debian (ubuntu) based distributions.

the real question is: what do you need dpkg for in php?? –  akira Jul 2 '10 at 8:17

For those who wanted to know: you can install dpkg.

Qouted from http://pkgs.org/centos-6/epel-i386/dpkg-1.15.5.6-6.el6.i686.rpm.html

  1. Download the latest epel-release rpm from http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/6/i386/
  2. Install epel-release rpm:

    rpm -Uvh epel-release*rpm

  3. Install dpkg rpm package:

    yum install dpkg
