    rpm results in file not found error


    Attempting to set up Oracle Linux 6 64-bit in a vm using vmware

    The basic vm is created and i'm trying to install vmware tools. It requires gcc.

    I've mounted the iso of linux using mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom
    I can cd to the Packages directory and can list the gcc file using ls -sla i want to rpm. It is in the current working directory. but when i run rpm -ivh it comes back with an error: open of gcc-4.4.4-13.e16.x86_64.rpm failed: No such file or directory

    the ls shows that the file is read only:
    10293 -r--r--r--. 1 root root 10539156 Jan 3 2011 gcc-4.4.4-13.e16.x86_64.rpm

    I suspect it's something really simple and basic, but I have googled to no end on this one.
