i don't get it: i try to install the package, and it says its already installed; so i try to remove it, and it says it doesn't exist...

[root@localhost downloads]# rpm -i gstreamer-ffmpeg-0.8.6-2.2.fc4.i386.rpm
warning: gstreamer-ffmpeg-0.8.6-2.2.fc4.i386.rpm: Header V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID e42d547b
package gstreamer-ffmpeg-0.8.6-2.2.fc4 is already installed
[root@localhost downloads]# rpm -e gstreamer-ffmpeg-0.8.6-2.2.fc4.i386.rpm
error: package gstreamer-ffmpeg-0.8.6-2.2.fc4.i386.rpm is not installed

rpm -e gstreamer-ffmpeg

You should not give the full package name with extension.

TO see if the package exists type

rpm -qa | grep gstreamer
