if you're using redhat rpm -ivh file.rpm (as root), if in slackware installpkg file.tgz (as root).

so change to be root, and use the appropriate package manager. i think you might need to rename the slackware package from file.tar.gz to file.tgz ... i'm not sure on that one. And also, there is a version 3.1 out now
