    try being an admin from start.

    I realized that sometimes when i would install an rpm using the terminal (ofcourse being a super user), it would fail for one reason or another. What i normally do is make sure i am signed in as root when installing and most of those poblems are not there. I am not guaranting(is that the spelling???) it will work.

    You must have root privileges to install/remove any package. Either log in as root user ( not recommended ) or gain root privileges through su command.
    Execute this
    Code:
    su -
    rmp -ivh RealPlayer10GOLD.rpm
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
