Dear All,
Thank you for the information as now I should be careful and always try to install things via yum and not rpm.

Installing with rpm isn't going to hurt or break your system. What you got was just a notification. Yum just simplifies the rpm proccess by handling all the dependicies. The only thing that may damage your system is if you install a bad package with rpm or yum.
