User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.2-2 i686)
Description of problem:
I am logged in as root.
After mounting Powertools CD and cding to SRPMS, i used the rpm -ivv and
got the following:
D: opening db index /var/lib/rpm/Packages rdonly mode
D: locked db index /var/lib/rpm/Packages
D: opening db index /var/lib/rpm/Name rdonly mode=0x0
D: closed db index /var/lib/rpm/Name
D: closed db index /var/lib/Packages
Steps to Reproduce:
1.find nmap rpm
2.install using rpm -ivv
Actual Results: nothing. Nmap is not found on my system manually or with
"whereis" or "find"
Expected Results: I should have been able to use nmap
That's because you are installing the source package for nmap. Install the
binary package instead (ends with i386.rpm and not src.rpm).
