DDD installation problems!


Hi,
I already have gdb installed under Mandriva 10.2. I am trying to install DDD. I went to this site http://rpm.pbone.net/index.php3/stat....i586.rpm.html
to obtain the rpm file, then here's what happened:

[root@localhost swilliams]# rpm -i ddd-3.3.1-8mdk.src.rpm
warning: user houpla does not exist - using root
warning: group houpla does not exist - using root
warning: user houpla does not exist - using root
warning: group houpla does not exist - using root

warning: group houpla does not exist - using root
warning: user houpla does not exist - using root
warning: group houpla does not exist - using root
warning: user houpla does not exist - using root
warning: group houpla does not exist - using root

Could someone please tell me what is wrong? Thanks.

Just a warning ... basically it means that the maintainer
of that package has a group-owner for ddd that doesn't
exist on your machine. Another good reason not to use
package management systems ;}


Cheers,
Tink

It looks it wanted houpla user and group and it can't find it in your system, so used root. The program should be correctly installed and usable. It doesn't look like a big problem.

That's because you didn't install the program, but the
SOURCE for it ... you need to use rpms build-feature.
"man rpm" for details, I haven't used it in 4 years ;}



Cheers,
Tink
