Unhappy File Association


I downloaded and installed Fedora Core 1 (FC1) a couple of months ago- never could get the OS to update using the 'up2date' feature, so, I DL and installed FC2, which did update with no problem. My current problem is in trying to install a genealogy rpm, it keeps asking for 'Associale Application', and not knowing what to do, I am at a loss. All features I've tried do not open the program, but it shows that it is in the system - however, it will not start.

When I did have FC1 running (even though it would not update), I was able to DL the 'GRAMPS' rpm, install and utilize the package with few problems. Can anyone tell me how to get past this 'associate....' feature? I have 5 books, but none of them seem to address this 'Associate Application' issue - and probably it is relatively simple, but this 'noobie' isn't able to figure it out. Appreciate assistance in detail

Bob

I'm not familiar with FC or Gnome, and am not quite sure
I understand what your problem is, but I guess that
what you're trying to achieve is to install the program,
rather than running it ...

Try (on a command line, as root)
rpm -i /path/to/gramps.rpm


Cheers,
Tink

Thanks for the responses - I finally discerned that I needed two rpm packages in support of my GRAMPS program, and that those two also needed upgrading. So, I now have the rpm working. Thanks for the insight and assistance.
