Re: How to install the LibreOffice beta 3 rpm package

Am I correct here?

No quite. The code from yum-3.2.28 looks like this:

for arg in userlist:
if (arg.endswith('.rpm') and (yum.misc.re_remote_url(arg) or
os.path.exists(arg))):
self.localInstall(filelist=[arg])
continue # it was something on disk and it ended in rpm
# no matter what we don't go looking at repos
try:
self.install(pattern=arg)
...

So, yum only attempts to use localinstall if the argument given a)
ends with .rpm and b) is either a url or an existing file¹.

¹ Technically using os.path.exists() means that if you had a dir named
foo.rpm and passed that as an argument to yum install, it would
attempt to localinstall it and fail with the error "Cannot open:
foo.rpm. Skipping."
