Installing rpm


Hey guys how do you install an rpm in Redhat 9. I'm extremely new to unix systems and dont know anything. Also is there any good books I could read on Linux Systems?? Thanks! The rpm I'm trying to install is the flast plugin from Macromedia.

Hi InEeDhElPlInUx!!!

And welcome to LinuxQuestions.org. About installing programs in Linux, check out this thread:

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...threadid=45094

I don't remember installing flash from a rpm though. But if you are sure it's a rpm, use the command:

rpm -ivh <full name of the rpm here>

The ivh stand for i=install, v=verbose (better output for errors) and h=hash (so you will see hash "#" symbols as the installing process goes).

Good luck!
