Sorry, I was neither desperate nor furious just I wanted to highlight my question (that is why in CAPITAL , didn't know it meant screaming) and was searching for one who has installed it from tarball.
I wanted to simply ask that
How to see thumbnail for video in nautilus file browser of GNOME in openSUSE 10.3.For example I came to know that mpg123 is needed for music preview of audio files using which when i hover my mouse over audio file it begins to play till mouse remains over it.So what is needed for thumbnail preview of video files.

I got ffmpegthumbnailer rpm from http://gnupg.cdpa.nsysu.edu.tw/Linux...suse/10.3/src/
Then I ran following command
#rpm -i ffmpegthumbnailer-1.5.2-0.pm.1.src.rpm
Output was
warning: 10.3ffmpegthumbnailer-1.5.2-0.pm.1.src.rpm: Header V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 9a795806
Does this mean that ffmpegthumbnailer has been installed ?

To install a src.rpm
Code:
rpm --rebuild ffmpegthumbnailer-1.5.2-0.pm.1.src.rpm
cd /usr/src/redhat/RPM/
rpm -iv ffmpegthumbnailer-1.5.2-0.pm.1.rpm

As told I ran
#rpm --rebuild 10.3ffmpegthumbnailer-1.5.2-0.pm.1.src.rpm
OUTPUT --rebuild: unknown option
Then from 'rpm --help' I came to know that '--rebuilddb means rebuild database inverted lists from installed package headers'
QUESTION)Is this same as rebuild you have suggested
When I run
#rpm -iv --nosignature --nodigest 10.3ffmpegthumbnailer-1.5.2-0.pm.1.src.rpm
OUTPUT ffmpegthumbnailer-1.5.2-0.pm.1
But there is no file named 'ffmpegthumbnailer-1.5.2-0.pm.1.rpm' on whole system.
I found tarball present within rpm(because when I double click on this .src.rpm it opens like a zip file & shows a tarball..spec file present inside.) inside folder /usr/src/packages/SOURCES .
QUESTION)What shoud I do?
