RedHat9 Shrike: Adding applications gives "packages not found"
 
When I decide to add applications from the "system settings" menu, the 3 RedHat CD's nearby, I get an error: "packages not found" (mozilla is mentioned).
I chose some programs and hit "Update" and it starts checking dependencies.

Any clue?

thank you!

I would suggest getting apt for RPM. It makes managing package selections in RH way easier. There is a link in my signature below to get apt. You won't regret it.

installing packages problem - apt won't help
 
I'm verry sorry, but I've RPM-med the APT application and it seems it installed itself fine (under root).
But I still get the annoying error: can't locate mozilla-rpms.
I've tried to install the mozilla-packages manually from CDROM (even copied them to HD and set attributes to be sure I won't get any readonly errors)
But it tells me : they are already installed.

Am I doing something wrong with the apt installation??

Thanks again in advance!

Packages not found - apt?
 
I've installed apt as recommended.
It seems to be unpacked right, but have no clue how to use it.
I still get errors about mozilla-packages not found when I try to install additional programs from the RedHat CDs!

To use apt, type the following as root

apt-get update

apt-get upgrade mozilla (or any other package name)
