~# yast2 --help
Usage: /sbin/yast2 [OPTIONS] [MODULE] [module specific parameters]
[trim ...]
-i, --install install rpm package

<package> can be a single short package name (e.g. gvim) which will be
installed with dependency checking, or the full path to an rpm package
(e.g /tmp/gvim.rpm) which will be installed without dependency checking
