Most IBM i folks are now using binaries from Perzl site, therefore a new wwwperzl.sh script was created to web download and/or install rpms and dependencies from Perzl site. Perzl site provides handy list of dependencies for rpms you may download ( deplists), setup2.sh below creates a local copy of Perzl *.deps tree for use with wwwperzl.sh. This information and scripts are offered “as is”, please check perzl.org License link for additional details.

$ cd /QOpenSys/download
$ chmod +x wwwinstall.sh        <-make executable
wwwinstall.sh has 4 possible operations each package (BASE example) ... 
$ wwwinstall.sh GetBase         <- wget and install rpms (requires IBM i allowed Internet access)
$ wwwinstall.sh GetBase_wget    <- wget rpms only (requires IBM i allowed Internet access)
$ wwwinstall.sh GetBase_install <- install rpms only for manual install RPM packages IBM i without Internet Access (see dark side below)
$ wwwinstall.sh GetBase_clean   <- remove xxx.rpm files from /QOpenSys/download, but not remove product (optional post install clean up)
$ wwwinstall.sh GetBase_erase   <- uninstall/erase rpm packages (risky)
