if your file with name.gz
#gunzip name.gz
if your file with name.tar
#tar -xvf name.tar
if your file with name.tar.gz
#tar -xzvf name.tar.gz

For rpm if you are installing fresh package
#rpm -ivh name.rpm
To upgrade existing one
#rpm -Uvh name.rpm

i think you are little bit confused about tar and gzip

in RPM most of the time u get an error message saying that "failed dependencies" and you still want to force the installation then type --nodeps at the end of the command. that is
#rpm -i file.rpm --nodeps

You can also try
Code:
yum localinstall file.rpm
which will install the RPM, and use the SuSE repositories to resolve any dependencies.

In fact, if the program is in the SuSE repositories then you can download it and install it in one go:

Code:
yum install package
NB: no .rpm extension on that last one.

nileshkumar, you can find instructions on this here:

http://www.susegeek.com/multimedia/i...pensuse-linux/

It suggests that there should be a command named ./flashplayer-installer rather than going through the usual configure/make/make-install cycle.

If that doesn't work, run ls and you should see which files are available.

Hope that helps,

—Robert J Lee
