First of all id like to say hello to everyone,ok now for my dilema , ive just installed RH9 & would like to add gkrellm, which is available on the cd as a rpm . i insert the cd , find the gkrellm rpm , i right click on it , install packages, enter my root passwood , a progress meter flashes up , and thats about it .Hmmm where did it go ?
1: ive tried rpm -q gkrellm ... gkrellm not installed
2:rpm -ivh gkrellm ...no such file or directory
3:rpm -ivh gkrellm-2.1.5-3.i386.rpm ..... no such file or directory
This was done in /home/username .. i also tried these as root in the same dir.
Do i need to cd , if so which one ?
i also tried synaptic & thats tells me that the cd might not be apt enabled disk.....
Any help and or exact steps would be greatfull , to help this newbie out .
Thanks in advance
P.S ive looked through the man pages , and cant seem to find any thing , regarding installing rpm's from the RH cd's . I would be just as greatfull being directed to the right man page ....
