    Default Problem installing rpm

    Hi All,
    I'm having a problem installing an rpm.
    When I right-click on the rpm and choose Package Installer, I get the message
    'Can't provide file './suse/x86_64/terminfo-base-5.6-83.1.x86_64.rpm' from repository 'openSUSE-retail 11.0'

    How do i resolve this problem?

    With Regards
    Nibiran

    install via cli, it's very easy. If you get stuck, man rpm will help

    in other words... go to konsole and as root do
    Code:
    rpm -ivh filename.rpm
    afterwards konsole will tell you which are missing dependencies (usually libraries you need to install before you install your program). Then try to search for them via yast->software management and install them.

    Better use zypper. It solves dependencies automatically.
    Code:
    sudo zypper in file.rpm
