I am a very new linux user, let me say that first... Second, I have some rpm's that I want to install into my linux system. I am running Fedora Core 2, (final version by the way, and all updates installed and windows xp dual booted, if that makes a difference). I am running these on an IBM Thinkpad with a 1.8ghz processor, 256 mgs of ram. I used Partition Magic 7 to change the partition to make room for linux. Ok, now that we have the basics out of the way, I have a problem.
Whenever I click on any .rpm file, I get an error message that says no program association to .rpm choose what program to use to open the file.
What program should this be? From what I understand, and that is limited mind you, an .rpm file is like a setup excutable. There is not really a program that is used to open it. So, if anyone out there has any idea, please let me know. I have done my research and it seems that this is a common error. Is there a fix for it?
