    Default Error installing software via RPM (Free Pascal)

    Hello!

    I'm a new user to openSuSE, but know enough about Linux in general to be dangerous. I'm new to using RPMs for installation of software and I received an error that I'm not quite sure how to handle from the Software Installation program.

    I downloaded and successfully installed Free Pascal 2.2.4-1 via RPM using Software Installation. I went to install Lazarus (a seperate GUI IDE for Free Pascal) and when I performed the same installation procedure, I instead got this error:

    [PK_TMP_DIR|dir:///var/tmp/TmpDir.A62YKv] Repository already exists.

    The steps I took were this:
    1) When actually clicking on the link to download the program, I chose "Open with Software Installer" when asked by Firefox.
    2) I chose to open the package and gave authorization to the program.
    3) The program started to install and then immediately stopped with the above error.

    Any pointing in the right direction so I can fix this is appreciated. :)

    Thanking you,
    dm

    Either delete /var/tmp/TmpDir.A62YKv or download the rpm and install it manually.

    I removed all of the temp directories that were in /var/temp (the ones that I know were from trying to install the software). I then tried to install the software using rpm -i <filename> and all it did was jump to another command prompt and act like nothing happened. I'll keep looking further into this and try to figure out why it's not working manually. Thanks for the suggestion!

    I feel like an idiot; evidently FPC was already installed...didn't know about the -v command for RPM. All is installed now. Thanks!
