Cant install .RPM files (Read DESK)

I cannot install files from add/install or downloads!
It says run "sudo complete transaction" whatever and i do it and it doesen't do anything to help it just wastes my time.








If this isnt fixed, I'm going to ubuntu linux!

Re: Cant install .RPM files (Read DESK)

You seem to be using sudo for whatever reason, so make sure you're set up properly with it here: http://www.mjmwired.net/resources/mj...-f16.html#sudo

Next, have you any idea of how to use yum? Check the Fedora Set-Up Guides (link above) to handle your issues. Basically (sudo aside), it's just opening a terminal and:

su - (give password)
yum install packagename

and also:

yum update

to keep your system current.
Not too difficult if you don't mind CLI. For more info, type "man yum"


Oh, and your whining and double-posting is not going to get you anything other than irritation from others and probably removal from the Forum. Understand?

Mint is better.


Code:
su
yum-complete-transaction --cleanup-only

Re: Cant install .RPM files (Read DESK)

I gave you the commands. Did you read them? Did you go to the Fedora Set-Up Guides (above) or read anything from FedoraProject about how to install or handle your distro? Did you go to the Read This First Forum?

http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/FAQ#Ho...ng_like_APT.3F

Edit: Leigh, it looks like you have some idea of why he's borked. I'll let you take him by the hand from here on out.
