Guile rpm file won't install from command line or yast2
when installing an rpm file using yast2 I was told that i needed,,and
I searched for these files and found that they are included in guile-1.4.1-48. I downloaded this rpm and attempted to install it from yast2 and the command line. Yast2 did nothing and the command line said "Warning: only v3 signatures can be verified, skipping v4 signature."
on the command line I used the standard "rpm -i" command and got this warning. What can I do to fix this? Is there another way to get the files that i origianlly needed?

If you *really* know that you have the right RPMs, you can rpm -i --force --nodeps. If the RPMs are "wrong", this *will* cause you grief.

As for where to get the RPMs you need -- are they not on the install media?

it is RIDICULOUSSSSSS!... when you download Suse 9.1 from the FTP, there is next to nothing in the way of compilers and other things. i had to install the <make> command... im reaaaaaaaaaly getting irritated with it

Ick ... That sucks.

This is why Debian's apt and *BSD's ports system and cousins (emerge, etc) are great and plain old RPM, well ... blows.

i just tried the command you gave me... i got the exact same message... what else can i do?

try ading a -v to your command line. That will give you more verbose output. Also try rpm -qa | grep -i guile. If the signature warning was just a warning, the packages may be installed (though I doubt it).

Failing all that, I'd say you'll have to find packages built for your distro.
