Gnome RPM newbie

Gnome RPM newbie

Post by kguy » Tue, 11 Jun 2002 19:11:53

I am trying to install addition packages from the CD-Rom on my Redhat 7.2
machine using Gnome. After selecting the package and pressing the install
button, Gnome complains that there are some depency Problems. How can I let
Gnome solve these dependency problems for me just Yast does it? If there is
now way to do it how can I make sure that all required package are installed
before installing a given package?
Thanks for any hint.

1. Problem with Gnome RPM - Failed to open /var/lib/rpm/packages.rpm

I'm new to Linux and have just installed Redhat 6.1.  I'm using the
Gnome RPM manager and it works great for rpm packages that came on the
6.1 CD, but when I try to load some packages that I've downloaded I
get the Error " Failed to open /var/lib/rpm/packages.rpm"  Am I doing
something wrong, or is there something I need to set?  Any help would
be appreciated.  Thanks

Oh, and one more less important item.  I installed 6.1 with Gnome, How
do I switch to KDE to try it out?  Do I have to re-install?
