Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 19899
Last modified: 2005-10-31 17:00:50 EST
When I try to install any programs on RH 7.0 using grorpm I get the
gnorpm - auth
has crashed due to fatal error
I have tried to install various updates from the Red Hat Network, Star
Real Player for Lynix and all give a similar message.
The number after the process seems to vary...
I originally Installed RH Linux 6.1 on a machine and then purchased the RH
installing any programs under 6.1.
I got a modem and soundcard to work under 7.0 now, but have not been able
any programs other than what came on the CDs from Red Hat.
When I get this message I am directed to a GNOME Web site. I found a
reported there with RH Linux 7.0 with no resolution to it.
I am new to Linux and would appreciate any pointers in other ways to
install packages or
how to work around this one. From what I can gather using the RPM packages
best way to install new programs if I could get it to work....
My machine is a 90 MHz Pentium with 64 Megs of RAM and a 2.5 Gig HDD.
I completely removed Windows from the Hard Drive before installing Linux.
I think this is a duplicata of Bug 19301. I have the same problem.
You can work around this by using rpm to install packages. Just type (in a gnome
terminal, xterm or whatever)
rpm -ivh /path/to/package-you-want-to-install.rpm
If you are upgrading a package, use -Uvh instead of -ivh.
Throw away the Red Hat rpm and get the gnorpm build from
That one works

Thanks for the help.
Both the command line prompt from xterm and the newer version of Gnorpm from
