Wiki confusion? 6.2 RPM strangeness

Postby Riff » 2012/04/29 22:07:27

Hope this is in the right place chaps. Please relocate if required

I'm installing a fresh 6.2 on a new box. I've tried using the Wiki for a lot of help and it does most of what is needed very well. However when I go to CentOS Wiki - RPMForge and follow those steps I get unexpected responses...

I download the x86_64 rpm as per here:

Download the rpmforge-release package. Choose one of the two links below, selecting to match your host's architecture. If you are unsure of which one to use you can check your architecture with the command uname -i

i686 ... f.i686.rpm
x86_64 ... x86_64.rpm

which works fine.

I install the DAG key fine too... no issue

but when I try the

Code: Select all

rpm -i rpmforge-release-0.5.2-2.el6.rf.x86_64.rpm

I get the following output:

# rpm -i rpmforge-release-0.5.2-2.el6.rf.x86_64.rpm
error: open of rpmforge-release-0.5.2-2.el6.rf.x86_64.rpm failed: No such file or directory

I've Googled and I cannot see that I'm missing anything and in fact it looks like that should work, so far as I understand... so is the Wiki lacking info or am I missing the bleedin' obvious?

It appears the package is not in your current local directory. Either

Code: Select all

rpm -i

Code: Select all

rpm -i rpmforge-release-0.5.2-2.el6.rf.x86_64.rpm
