Unhappy mandrake rpms


I have a strange problem with mandrake rpm on my mandrake 9.1.
If i try to install mandrake packages on cd there is no problem but as i want to install another rpm, for example that i have downloaded, it shows me the message: "all just installed" but nothing has been installed.

i can't understand, if you can, pls help me

If it told you it is installed, then it probably is. Try opening a terminal and typing "whereis program name". That should point you to where the program is.

Also try rpm -q <package>
rpm -ql <package>

The first will show the installed package and the second will list the files that were installed.

Don't worry. Most of us have probably been in that "state of panic" ourselves. I know I have.

You can also look in your /usr/bin folder for the program name. That's usually where programs go.
