YUM Installation


I downloaded the latest yum [yum-3.2.7-1.src.rpm] from http://linux.duke.edu/projects/yum/download/3.2/ and I am using rhel3

When I issue the command: rpm -ivh yum-3.2.7-1.src.rpm
I get:

warning: yum-3.2.7-1.src.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 69886cc7
1:yum warning: user skvidal does not exist - using root
warning: group skvidal does not exist - using root
warning: user skvidal does not exist - using root)
warning: group skvidal does not exist - using root

Any suggestion please? Thanks a lot..

suggestions for what? it worked... you installed source, not an actual program, but there is no error at all in that.

You installed a source rpm instead of a binary rpm. The rpm you are supposed to install should have an extension similar to i386.rpm and not src.rpm.
