if u have .src.rpm. first of all u sould build the file.src.rpm. Building is nothing but compiling the source i.e .src.rpm. It converts the source file into a binary .rpm file.try this command for building the source file(.src.rpm)
rpmbuild --rebuild packagename.src.rpm
this will give u a .rpm file
then install the binary (.rpm file) by giving the command:
rpm -ivh --nodeps packagename.rpm
As for a start try installing a compiled (binary) file.
