installing rpm's


So I try installing rpm's and three thing's always seam to happen.

Either it installs, which is great

or it opens then closes right up

or lastly it open gets to the discrepancies and it finds some but I install or at-least try to install the libs or what not it need and it still wont work.

Is there something wrong with my system, I hope I don't have to reinstall it. Hopefully its something that I can solve.

Thanks,
apoc

1. thats good
2. maybe you downloaded the .src.rpm, and not the binary
3. you need to sort out the dependencies

SOLUTION TO ALL: use "apt".

search on these forums about it. you'll find enough writeup.

Did you install rpm from command line or double clicking in Konqueror or Nautilus browser? I used to get the problem in RedHat 8.0. Everything was solved after learning to use the command line 'rpm'.

Do you want even easier?

Synaptic (previously known as raptor) is yet-another-GUI-frontend for APT. But the major difference from other frontends is that Synaptic is meant to be easy to use.
