So wht does this actually mean ?
The report attributes you find doing `man rpm`. The question mark means the check couldn't be performed. Did you run the check as root account user? What are the files access permissions? The prelinking message may be due to an error in prelink or package updates and prelink cache not being in sync. Try running prelink and then verify again.

RPM is one of the few mature package management systems that includes all the tools you would need to verify your installation. Regardless of any package management used, it's always a good idea to make a backup of your rpm databases and not to rely on just one toolkit or application for verifying system integrity and also install a system integrity checker like Samhain (active) or Aide (passive, also see Osiris or Integrit or even tripwire) or use checking features from say Rootkit Hunter. It's best practice to install such checkers right after installing the OS and before exposing it to any network.

See the system integrity checker part above. If that's too much for your taste you could save SHA1 or MD5 hashes (store a copy outside the system) and run manually or as cronjob.

>>>>Thanks For Info ....

No i have not done it with root permissions....

>>>I've installed tripwire and it seems a bit complicated .....Anyways i'll try others

>>>Is it good to install an rpm package which has no GPG signatures but the sha and md5 seems to be okay.....
