I want to install on my Linux Red Hat machine (6.3 64 bit) the rpm - intltool-0.41.0-1.1.el6.src.rpm.

For some unclear reason I get this:

 /var/tmp]# rpm -i  intltool-0.41.0-1.1.el6.src.rpm
 warning: intltool-0.41.0-1.1.el6.src.rpm: Header V3 RSA/SHA256 Signature, key ID fd431d51: NOKEY
 warning: user mockbuild does not exist - using root
 warning: group mockbuild does not exist - using root

 /var/tmp]# rpm -qa | grep -i  intltool
 /var/tmp]#

    The problem seems to be you are using the wrong tool. rpm has very limited use for the novice admin - mainly to install extra repositories. For everything else, you should be using yum. – Deer Hunter Jul 2 '14 at 14:25

intltool-0.41.0-1.1.el6.src.rpm is a source RPM package, containing the source code, patches and build instructions used to make the actual RPM intltool-0.41.0-1.1.el6.rpm package.

IIRC source RPM packages get installed in the /usr/src/ sub-directories, but if you weren't planning on building your own packages, you should simply download the correct binary package and install that, or use yum install intltool.

  • Can you help me to find the latest rpm for red-hat 6.3 64bit? ( I cant use yum command ) – maihabunash Jul 2 '14 at 10:52
  • Is it not on your install medium? – HBruijn Jul 2 '14 at 10:56
  • What's gone wrong with your yum? Your system is badly broken. – Deer Hunter Jul 2 '14 at 14:30

You've installed intltool-0.41.0-1.1.el6.src.rpm. It's a package for building rpm from sources and the information about that package not registered in RPM DB. Look into /usr/src/packages - you can find all the files from src.rpm here. Now you can build binary rpm package:

cd /usr/src/packages/SPECS
rpmbuild -bb intltool.spec

Or simply download and install binary package intltool-0.41.0-1.1.el6.rpm (with yum or manually).
