installing a tar.gz file on mandriva 2010


I have a tar.gz file that I am trying to install - In trying to convert it to a rpm file I extracted it to its own directory and ended up with a heap of .svg files - how do I install from here?

Hi,

Welcome to LQ!

Most have a install or readme file to instruct.
