Description of problem:
I find the idea of RPMs great but...

I usually work under the Gnome desktop.
When a package fails to install, it often does not show why, and
suddenly closes.
I know I can use the console command, but it is much less user-friendly.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open (in Gnome) some of the web-available RPMs (I tried with Mplayer

This smells like redhat-config-package problem, not rpm.

Bounce back to rpm if I'm wrong, please. Reassigning ...

This report is filed against a product which is no longer supported.  It is very
likely that the problem is resolved in the current version of Fedora Core or
scheduled to be resolved with the new system-config-packages scheduled to land
in Fedora Core 5.
