    I take it that you're trying to instal an RPM using KDE.

    Try opening up a terminal window and entering
    Code:
    rpm -i filename.rpm
    where "filename.rpm is the name of the RPM file that you're trying to load. You may find that you need to be root user (enter 'su -' followed, when prompted, by the root password [remember to put the space minus sign after the su, this makes sure that you get all of root's environment setup])

    have fun

    its not that, i can apt-get just fine, and thats all i really 'need' in the truest sence of the word..... but id like to know what exactly is causing the crash, how it can be stoped, and what i can do to prevent it in the future..... all in the name of learning, ya know?

    Davou00,
    when it crashes, are you presented with a KDE error message pop-up? And if so is there any mention of sigrev11 or sig11? If so, then you've got some dodgy RAM.
