RPM Issue with Fedora Core 4


Hi all,

I would like to point out an issue i've encountered after installing fedora core 4.

As soon as I double click an *.rpm file it comes with a window asking me what program I want to use to run the *.rpm

However when I do it through the console using the commands:

rpm -ivh <packagename.rpm> it installs just fine.

I tried installing the latest RPM version available for my distro through: yum -y install rpm
which installed version 4.4.x

Now when I go to my control center --> KDE Components --> File associations
I look in the sections applications, scroll down to x-rpm
and I find in the general tab that is says:
Filename Patterns
*.rpm
Description
RPM Package File
Application Preference Order
None

As you can see no application is linked to x-rpm.

Is there a way I can solve this matter?

Lets face it, Linux is a powerfull OS, but the power of the mouse still rules even though the commandline can do most of the jobs.

Hope someone has a sollution for my little problem.

Kind regards,

Jorge Valencia

Either link it to the package manager or kpackage if using KDE. kpackage is the better choice. May have to install it.

Is it not listed in the Start Menu somwhere. Usually under System Settings or System Tools. I cannot be for sure since I have removed it log ago. If it is there then you can goto the Control Center to File association like you mentioned above and select the package manager when selct add for it.
