Question privoxy installation woes

problems in installing privoxy.

i downloaded privoxy from this url:

downloaded the rpm for Redhat, since I'm using redhat 8.0 and running on a P3, downloaded this file privoxy-3.0.0-1.6x.src.rpm .

ran the following line.
rmp -ivh privoxy-3.0.0-1.6x.src.rpm

chown privoxyrivoxy default.action

and the error msg "chown: `privoxyrivoxy': invalid user" appeared.

anybody knows what is wrong here? thks.
