rpm error


I downloaded a game for red hat 9, and tried to install it with this:

rpm -i Wormz-1.0b5-1.src.rpm

and it gives me this error:

warning: user miri does not exist - using root

I'm logged in as root when I install it. Does anyone know what this error means?

HI THERE

this is not a ny eror but a wrning
it is trying to install the game with a username "miri" and when it is not able to find it warns u of the error(since it is not always good to run as root)

now u can add a user of the name required using the useradd menu or the command line utlilty
useradd
man useradd will help u more
