Ja, I think that's his actual problem, but I'm still a bit concerned he might have the wrong rpm. Although since it's a noarch it maybe doesn't matter but I'm not 100% on that. I saw someone on another thread imply that the noarch rpms would work on all architectures, but I have a hard time believing that if the rpms just contain binaries. But I'm no expert and this is getting off-topic.

@seeker48: put me out of my misery and tell us the output of uname -i!
