rpm does nothing?


I've downloaded the mrtg rpm package from Red Hat, but when I try to:

rpm -ivh mrtg-2[1].9.17-3.i386.rpm

...nothing happens. I dont get an error message or anything it just returns to the command prompt. I've tried rebuilding the rpm database and it didnt help. Any ideas?

Try to execute rpm -qa to verify that your rpm-database is feeling well.

yeah andutt has the million dollar question: are the rpms being installed?

After you do:

rpm -ivh mrtg-2[1].9.17-3.i386.rpm

what does:

rpm -qa | grep mrtg

return?
