    Error when installing ATI rpm


    Hi everyone, I am trying to install my ATI graphics card driver with the rpm, but when I go to install it I get this error. I have had an error like this before on another distro of Linux, but I forget how exactly I fixed it. I think it was something to do with the "ln" command or something. Here is the error I am getting.

    Maybe it would help to first convert the .rpm package to a slackware package (.tgz) with alien:
    Code:
    fakeroot alien -t --scripts package_name.rpm
    Then install the resulting .tgz package.

    Then install the fakeroot package from the slackware repository.

    Well that's a problem

    I have never done that before, and I don't have a clue how. I am still fairly new to using Linux and only know the very basics

    Could you or someone tell me how please, I really need to get this all working!

    You can read that:
    http://www.slackware.com/config/packages.php

    And use rpm2targz instead of the command I gave you:
    Code:
    rpm2tgz package_name.rpm
    For package management, you can use
    -slapt-get (command line version)
    -gslapt-get (GUI version)

    Here is link to download slapt-get:

    Great!

    Try to learn slapt-get as best as you can, it is a very useful tool.
