Unhappy RPM Package Installation



I am using Redhat 7 and trying to install the Samba RPM package from the CD. Everytime I click the Samba package file I get a dialogue box which asks Open WIth. What do I type in to open the application with? Thanks.

I prefer to use the command line when installing RPMs.

rpm -ivh packagename.rpm

Otherwise, I would recommend using kpackage if you must use a GUI.

If you installed KDE, it's included with that. It's actually bundled with the kdeadmin rpm.
