can't find

I've downloaded the kmess-1.2.1mdk rpm but when i try to install it, it complains that it can't find the file.

As far as i'm concerned, this file comes into the nvidia drivers package that is installed and is working very well in my computer.

any suggestions?

mdk9.1 | nvidia geforce 2

run "glxgears". Does it work?

If not, then you need to add "load glx" to your XFree86Config file.

Consult the Nvidia readme for all the details on configuring your XFree86Config file.

And i've already setup my xf86config file according to nvidia readme file.

I've downloaded a strange, installed it, and now things are working fine. Thanks for the help anyway.

Angry X killed by libGLcore

I installed the above rpm on Suse 8.2 to solve a dependence for Kcmpureftpd and.... surprise!!
After reboot, when starting the X server by startx, it gives me an error (kdeinit could not start because file is too short).

I tried to remove the rpm (-e)but it says that it is not installed, i tried to reinstall it (-ivh or -Uvh) but it says it is installed.

I think the problem is that the package is too short... and cause some trouble on the rpm management system.

In the end i had to reinstall the system and today i'm going to try

rpm --nodeps -ivh kcmpureftpd.rpm

if it works, and i think it will, because the gears are working on my system, will be fine.

Otherwise, i will edit the /etc/pure-ftpd.conf (and a little voice says that maybe this is the best solution)

When removing an rpm, you use the package name, not the filename with the .rpm ending. Man rpm
