Question Problems installing Apt in RH9


I'm new to red hat 9 and I'm having problems installing the apt programs. I've read several posts and several other webpages, but I get hung up on the installation process. Whenever I run the command:

rpm -Uvh apt*

to install the software, I always get the following error:

warning: apt-0.5.5cnc-fr2.i38g.krpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID e42d547b

I've tried using this command as root, but when I do that, there is no response at all. What am I doing wrong?

Thanks in advance for putting up with another newbie.

You may have a corrupt copy of the rpm file. Try downloading a fresh copy of the rpm file.

Try this link:
http://apt.parrswood.manchester.sch....PMS.freshrpms/

If a fresh copy doesn't work then it probably means that somebody put togather a bad rpm.

Apt download

http://ftp.freshrpms.net/pub/freshrp...-1.fr.i386.rpm
Synaptic

Download and install apt first, then install synaptic. Synaptic is the gui frontend of apt.

They can be found and freshrpms.net Listed on the left hand side. I use it and it works sweet.

"rpm -Uvh update already installed rpm's. Don't you want to use the command rpm -ivh"

You are correct. But if the package is not already installed then rpm -Uvh works anyway.
