I run Slackware, and I need to be able to run rpm to install rpm
packages (duh). un-tarzipped the distribution package i got from the
sunsite site, and now when i do
rpm -i apcahe-blah-blah
# rpm -i ghostview-1.5-6.i386.rpm
failed to open //var/lib/rpm/packages.rpm
error: cannot open /var/lib/rpm//packages.rpm
what is wrong?
the howto's dont have much help for idiots.
