RPMs on SUSE 10.1

Hi folks!!

I am experiencing problems with YAST in SUSE... it doesn't look for updates on the net, nor it is unable to install ANY RPM file. It just seem to not find them!!

Is my distribution badly installed or what?

Please do help me! I need a program for my work and it is distributed under RPM format!

assuming it's a fresh install, do an online update from within yast, not by clicking the 'meatball' in the task bar. there should be updated libzypp stack available.

you should still be able to install rpm manually with

rpm -ivh filename.rpm
followed by
SuSEconfig && ldconfig
