Guile rpm file won't install from command line or yast2


when installing an rpm file using yast2 I was told that i needed libguile.so.10, libltdl.so.3,and libqthreads.so.0.
I searched rmpfind.com for these files and found that they are included in guile-1.4.1-48. I downloaded this rpm and attempted to install it from yast2 and the command line. Yast2 did nothing and the command line said "Warning: only v3 signatures can be verified, skipping v4 signature."
on the command line I used the standard "rpm -i" command and got this warning. What can I do to fix this? Is there another way to get the files that i origianlly needed?

If you *really* know that you have the right RPMs, you can rpm -i --force --nodeps. If the RPMs are "wrong", this *will* cause you grief.

As for where to get the RPMs you need -- are they not on the install media?

Ick ... That sucks.

This is why Debian's apt and *BSD's ports system and cousins (emerge, etc) are great and plain old RPM, well ... blows.

try ading a -v to your command line. That will give you more verbose output. Also try rpm -qa | grep -i guile. If the signature warning was just a warning, the packages may be installed (though I doubt it).

Failing all that, I'd say you'll have to find packages built for your distro.
