yum tells me to update the

I am trying to install gvidcap/xvidcap on Fedora, and am doing this using yum.
But it is giving me the following error.

[yogesh@cdeep-8 gvidcap]$ yum install gvidcap-1.1.3-fc1.i386.rpm
Gathering header information file(s) from server(s)
Server: Fedora Core 1 - i386 - Base
Error - /var/cache/yum/base/ cannot be found
Please ask your sysadmin to update the headers on this system.

Plz help me resolving it.

I think that you should use rpm -ivh gvidcap-1.1.3-fc1.i386.rpm to install it ,because the package isn't in the repository.

Another way would be to do,
#yum localinstall somefile.rpm

Hey the issue is resolved

Hey after doing a local install yum said that the package is not signed, so I used rpm -ivh option, but it was failing due to dependencies so turned the gpgcheck bit off and packages got smoothely installed, dependencies taken care of by yum.
Thanks for the valuable hlp.


usage, yum
