Packages aren't installing


To install packages I do this:

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
linux:~ # openpkg rpm -i /root/Packages/filesystem.rpm
warning: /root/Packages/filesystem.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 9c800aca
package filesystem-9.0-7 is intended for a i586 architecture
package filesystem-9.0-7 is intended for a linux operating system
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

But I have a linux OS and an i586 architecture (well i'm pretty sure I do), so why isn't the package installing!?

While I'm not at all sure that this is the problem, are you downloading the RPM for the wrong distro. I see that you're running SUSE, so maybe you're downloading RPMs for another distro like Fedora/Red Hat. That's my only guess; if this hypothesis is incorrect I have no clue what's wrong.

I belive if your package may be destorted by some third party so it is not installing properly So if you want to have a original redhat key you can logon to www.redhat.com or can have it with some rpm option with package name you will have rpm key .
