Repairing KDE 3.3?


Greetings forum

I originally posted this problem a few days ago (http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...hreadid=241649). Due to no replies, I repost with further information.

As described in the mentioned thread, an update of KDE through yum failed. After this, some yum updates or rpm upgrades/installs fails. An example of this is the error description below. I tried to install mplayer through downloaded rpms:

[root@dhcppc1 msie02]# rpm -Uvh mplayer-1.0pre5-2.i386.rpm mplayer-common-1.0pre5-2.i386.rpm
warning: mplayer-1.0pre5-2.i386.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 75aa026a

.

.

And these errors continue a couple of screens. Can anyone see why this error occurs, or how I can fix it?

Regards

you could try this... running as root...
Quote:
cd /var/lib/rpm
rm -f __db*
rpm --rebuilddb
Then try doing wht u were doing again...and see if the problem persists....
