RPM Installation

when attempting to instal an rpm:
rpm -U webmin-1.300.1.src.rpm
I get the message
warning: webmin-1.300-1.src.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 11f63c51.

What am I doing wrong?

using RedHat Enterprise 4

The warning is that there was nog GPG signature key found to verify the authenticy of the rpm.
This is usualy a sign of a corrupt RPM. Try downloading it again.

The NOKEY warning refers to the fact that you're unpacking a source package that is signed with PGP key ID 0x11f63c51.

Essentially the messages mean you're unpacking a signed source package on a system that doesn't have the key used to sign it.

But I have to ask why your installing a source rpm? Why not just get the binary.rpm for your system

yum -i webmin should do it for you.

I tried your 'yum' command:
'yum -i webmin'
and got the message:
bash: yum: command not found
should I be in another shell?

I don't see the binary.rpm as one of the download options.
In case you didn't know already, I am very new to Unix

Now I have found out webmin is already installed. I swear, it was not installed before.

Thanks guys for your help.
