    using rpm

    i got a very big problem and i need all guys to help me. The problem is when i try to install an rpm package using the command line rpm -i <packagename> i get an error that says,
    CREATE TRANSATION. Almost forgot the other problem i've got. When i try to install any package that require you to run configure, make, then make install, i always get an error stating that i dont have permission to create a certain path e.g /usr/local/bin/### permission denied. If anyone can help mepliz do, and just incase you need to know, i'm using fedora core3.

    you usually need to be root when you install things. type su into a termianl and then your password.

    Once that is doe then you can enter rpm -i <xxxxxx>
    or make or whatever the command is.
