contradictory rpm responses
i'm trying to install wine using an rpm file. i su to root, then type rpm -i wine*.
the response is "package wine-20040408-mdk is already installed"
ok, that sounds great, so just to make sure, i type rpm -V wine* and get back:
package wine-20040408-mdk.i586.rpm is not installed
and upon trying to run wine it doesn't seem to be installed. yet whenever i try to install it, it claims to be installed already. i ran into this same situation trying to install gaim, but for some reason gaim is inatalled and working even though it returns the same "gaim is not installed" error
thank you for your time and help,
