Installing drivers using RPM.


Hello everyone! I'm trying to add new drivers for my graphics adapter (ATI 9800 128). I've downloaded the drivers from ati. When I try to use RPM (rpm -i <atidriver>.rpm) nothing happens. No exception. Nothing. Just returns back to a prompt. Any ideas?

Thanks a lot!

It may have installed it. Run "rpm -ivh <package name>" to get the hash mark progress bar and the verbose error messages, if any.
