    Default newbie question installation of packages for RPM

    I'm working distro 7.3 and have to add some sources to get rpm to
    working order.

    This is a router and I'm moving it to a new box. Before I installed
    just LILO. Now with GNU package I have a conflict.
    from #rpm -Uvh gpg-*
    = error: file /usr/bin/gpg from install of gpg-1.0.6-198 conflicts
    with file from package gnupg-1.0.6-5
    I get an error: file /usr/bin/gpgv from install of gpg-1.0.6-198
    conflicts with file from package gnupg-1.0.6-5
    I get an error: file /usr/bin/rndegd from install of gpg-1.0.6-198
    conflicts with file from package gnupg-1.0.6-5
    ....etc

    My Newbie question is:
    1. What steps do I need to resolving a conflict with this package?
    2. Is there another easier way to get rpm to work with gnupg package
    that will resolve the missing key error?

    .... 7.3 of "what"? are you getting the RPMs from the
    vendor or from the originating author?

    I assume that you mean "RedHat 7.3". Mandrake alsu uses RPM's and has
    similar distribution names. gpg is not a RedHat 7.3 package, but the
    RedHaat gnupg for 7.3 is. So the gpg package conflicts with it: no big
    surprise.

    Where did you *get* the gpg package? Since the gnupg program *includes*
    the gpg binary, maybe that's a hint that you don't need the gpg package?

    You need to add the RPM keys to your keyring. For 7.3, the command is
    "gpg --import /usr/share/rhn/RPM-GPG-KEY" on a system with the up2date
    packages installed, or you can use the keys from the CD's or FTP site.

    The gpg package was a dependancy for rpm. rpm was not installing programs correctly.

    Is this your reply to my question number two?
