hmmmmm ... well basing on the name of the package:
You seem to have downloaded an SRC (source) rpm - this is NOT exactly the
same thing with common rpms. THIS would be a common rpm:
automake-1.5-cvshome.1.rpm ( no `.src' before .rpm - notice that)
The command `rpm -i' on these packages installs the (uncompiled) sources.
Nothing else: these rpms are not registered (that is why you can not 'see' it)
and,most importantly, they do not install the program you want - jsut it's
In order to produce a .rpm from a .src.rpm you've got to pass the .src.rpm
through compilation. Here is the command that does everything for you:
rpmbuild --rebuild automake-1.5-cvshome.1.src.rpm
you will see a lot of output on the console for about 15 minutes and by
the time compilation will be over a couple of rpms will have been created in
where <smt> is directory name that varies from distro to distro. Just cd
in this directory and install the packages you will find. Hope these help.
P.S.: Ofcourse there is the easy way around: Just use the respect .rpm package
and get on with this.
