Question Rh7.2 & Rpm


Hey all
Real new here, so this may be a dumb question.
Just upgraded to 7.2 from 7.1 and am having a brainfart here. In 7.1 when I downloaded an RPM I could right click on it and I would have the option to install or upgrade. In 7.2 right clicking doesnt give the option. Can anyone point me in the proper direction or tell me what to do?

thanks in advance
eric

not sure how to integrate it back nito the shell, something to do with mime types i guess....

either way, run gnorpm from the command line, or from your menus, and install it that way, or use rpm command line

rpm --help

for more details.
