Question need a little help w/ gaim upgrade

I'm a complete noob to linux, been looking around the forums for about a week, which has been helpful. I'm running mdk9.2 and am trying to upgrade gaim (0.68-->0.76). But when I run the rpm it says:

warning: gaim-0.76-0mdk9.2.i586.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 4c292fcc
file /usr/lib/ from install of gaim-0.76-0mdk9.2 conflicts with file from package libgaim-remote0-0.68-1mdk

I've already uninstalled the previous version of gaim, and deleted all files I could find related to gaim, so what's the deal?

2 choices.
1. Compile it from source (packages are BAD!!!)
2. force the install despite a conflict (usually fine),
rpm -i gaim-0.76-0mdk9.2.i586.rpm --force

*correct* answer

Komakino, thanks for the useless answers.

palmtrees, the correct solution is 'urpme libgaim-remote0'.

The problem is that Mandrake has very strict naming policies on the library packages in the distro. The rpm from for mandrake doesn't conform to this policy and ends up conflicting with the Mandrake-supplied rpm. Simply remove the conflicting rpm and your gaim rpm will install fine.
