Question Error opening RPMS on Fedora Core 1--help


Whenever I double-click on an RPM, I get the message (This message appears after I enter my root password.):
"The File "<File>" could not be read. Make sure you have the proper permissions on it."

I already right-clicked it and allowed all permissions, but it still dosen't work!

Thanks for your help.

what happens when you use command mode?
Code:
# rpm -i packname.rpm
and are your root while trying to do this? If so, not a good idea, as running around a GUI as root leads to trouble.
