Which package did you try to install?

Where did you have downloaded the package?

Can you give me the error in a console mode plz, just copy/past

Like : rpm -Uvh name_of_rpm.rpm

blablabla


blalballa

ERROR HERE ..

Just copy that for help me to understand

Also, what is your distro? Red Hat/Fedora/Mandrake?

Hey , thanks for the help. im kinda new to linux so im just having some simple issues to work through. Im running the Fedora Core 1. and i was simply updating the entire system i believe,
# up2date
that was waht i did. But even when i try to use up2date and some program, i get RPM errors... the packages it was installing was the kernel,
kernel-2.4-22-1.2174.nptl
and got a fatal RPM install error.


Thanks
