Default Re: Tarball unzipped. How do I install now?????????

yes i did try to run the program. system takes the instrux, but hangs the terminal.

installing programs in linux is the pits! i have tried to install a simple *.rpm file which the systems prompts as needed, but then the report says that it is already installed! when i attempt to re-install, i get the same error. this is true even when i try to install from available programs under 'Add/Remove Applications'.

for instance, i try to install 'Windows File Server' cause i want to be able to serve Windows apps and get > 'Package Not Found' unlocatable package is 'samba-common'. so i go grab the *.rpm and when i install, it says it is already present. what gives????

frustrated,
j
