rpm's won't install -- help
after looking through the default themes of kde I decided to d/l some new ones and implement them... i d/l a package with several themes. this is what happened when i tried to install it from the gnome terminal:
[r-lass@localhost Ryans Folder]$ rpm -i kdethemes-fermi-3.i386.rpm
error: cannot open Packages index using db3 - Operation not permitted (1)
error: cannot open Packages database in /var/lib/rpm
and, after d/l another package (WineHQ) and trying to install it, the same thing happened. do i need to reinstall linux am i getting the wrong d/l files... i have an i386 motherboard and i am running mdk9.1.
if you could help that would be awesome
