Rpm 'Insuficient Rights'
Hi all,

Simple problem here. Everytime I want to install something from an RPM package in Mandrake 10, it tell me insufficient rights! It doesn't prompt me for the root password like it did in Mandrake 9.2.

Any solution for this?

thx in advance!

I think (and this is just my opinion) that the best to way to install an rpm is to do it from the command line.

Open a console, type in rpm -ivh <packagename>.rpm to install, rpm -Uvh <packagename>.rpm to upgrade and rpm -e <packagename>.rpm to uninstall. Far more powerful than the GUI.
