Unhappy Fedora 2 fresh installation - problem with rpm files


Hi
I just installed Fedora Core 2 without any problems. I am trying to install support for mp3s in xmms and have downloaded an rpm file that should do this. When I run it (using rpm -i xmmsXXXXXXXXXXXX) I get the following message:

warning: xmms-mp3-1.2.10-2.2.p.1.fc2.fr.i386.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID e42d547b
error: can't create transaction lock

I've tried a different rpm (for a different program) and I get a similar message. What does it mean and how can I fix it?

Thanks

Robbie

Hi.

You usually get this error if you're trying to install an RPM when you're not root.

Do 'su -' and enter the root password, then try installing again.
