Post the specific error messages. You probably have a dependency. Red Carpet and apt4rpm are good at resolving them, but your distro is a little old, so perhaps they aren't supported now.

I really do suggest a read of How to get good answers with your questions about Linux and double posting is frowned upon.

Did you read the rules you agreed to?

I suggest upgrading to release 7.3 and when you upgrade, choose expert and select the developmental packages and kernel source if you want to compile stuff.

rpm error utput

# rpm -i ./amanda-server-2.4.4-1.i686.rpm

error: ./amanda-server-2.4.4-1.i686.rpm cannot be installed


could it be that the rpm file was made with an rpm version that
is above my rpm release?

Verbose output please. Try the flags -Uvh

rpm -Uvh /path/to/amanda-server-2.4.4-1.i686.rpm
