open a console, su to root, and run "rpm -Uvh /home/user/kopete.blah.rpm" (change path accordingly). if this fails post the errors.

and please use informative titles in future. how do you think that your choice there was useful to anyone here?

put a few extra -v's on the command line for more detail and note that i said "-Uvh" not "-uvh" it's case sensitive.

there really really will be an error. can you copy and paste the entire terminal output, including the few lines before and after.

right, so what does this mean...

1) you aren't entering this command into a terminal in the first place so.. where are you typing it? you have terminal emulators like konsole, gnome terminal, xterm, rxvt, eterm on your program menu's somewhere.

2) you don't know how to copy and paste text. just use the mouse to select it and the paste using the middle mouse button.
