Thanks for quick help,
Please, tell me more about "dependencies"
I've tried Add/Remove software, but i have no connection instead, >> it didn't work.
Then, yum. I double clicked on .rpm file (is it right?), sometimes i get sthings like "no active internet connection", sometimes "dependencies checking failed"
Working in Terminal with yum, dragging the .rpm file to the terminal window to get its path, then run. I also get similar errors.
The package manager is configured to look in repositories (using the Internet). You can also define a CD or DVD as one of the places it looks.
"Dependencies"--this is just a fancy word for the libraries that are needed by a particular piece of SW. The package manager takes care of finding everything that is required. If you install an .rpm package manually, then you have to hunt down all the needed stuff.
