Thumbs up give it to me.. i can break it :)

ok.. I broke linux..

I cannot install rpm files anymore??? Im logged in as root. I tried to install the enlightenment rpm (everyone here seems to use it.. so I wanted to try it)

after try to install.. i got this message...

[[email protected] root]# rpm -i enlightenment-0.16.5-1.i386.rpm
error: enlightenment-0.16.5-1.i386.rpm: MD5 digest: BAD Expected(6dab5261910fbe0d62002876b0dbe69c) != (04ab8ee1d3a438b1a94d4b515de45de1)
error: enlightenment-0.16.5-1.i386.rpm cannot be installed
[[email protected] root]#

Well.. i figured the rpm file was just corrupted.. so i downloaded another with the same results... Well.. I tried to then access the package manager... but it hangs and locks... and trying to install any rpm hangs now?? what did I do??

thanks
trey

Try adding the -v (verbose) option like rpm -ivh to give you an idea why it's not working. Also check /var/log/messages.
