Program installing problem
 
When I try to install program rom rpm package with Kpackage, installing stops and it says "/bin/sh is needed by [program name]"

Do you have /bin/sh?

Yes, but it's probably broken, I think. I should get new file.

What happens if you use rpm from the command line?
rpm -i packagename.rpm

I tried it with Opera's rpm package as you can see.

I get the same thing while trying to install Tux Racer. And I KNOW I have those files in my /lib and /usr/lib directories. Is there some way of telling rpm/kpackage where the hell the files are? (Extreme newbie alert).
