RPM's not installing! =(


I am running mandrake ten, and tried to install GAIM. No error messages at ALL, and yet, nothing works. Locate gaim returns nothing... it doesn't appear to be installed.

do an 'updatedb' then try locate gaim again.

If that doesnt work, try downloading the tarball.

I just remembered, you can also try doing this.

Update your URPMI sources:

run these commands as root:

urpmi.addmedia net-plf ftp://plf.time4t.net/pub/plf/mandrake/10.0 with hdlist.cz

urpmi.addmedia net-main ftp://spirit.profinet.sk//mirrors/Ma.../Mandrake/RPMS with ../base/hdlist.cz

urpmi.addmedia net-contrib ftp://ftp.proxad.net//pub/Distributi...0/contrib/i586 with ../../i586/Mandrake/base/hdlist2.cz


Then, type 'urpmi gaim' and that will download/install gaim from those sources.
