How to install a CHM viewer in Fedora?

Hello to all,

I want to install a viewer for Microsoft CHM files as most manuals come as chm...

I tried yum install kchm but it does not work...

I got this error while typing yum install kchm:

Added 25 new packages, deleted 24 old in 1.13 seconds
Parsing package install arguments
No Match for argument: kchm
Nothing to do
[root@localhost linux]#

I tried also to install the rpm of KCHM but it also does not work....

I am using Fedora 4 with KDE.

Thanx and warm regards.

Download and install the following:

http://ftp.freshrpms.net/pub/dag/dri...c4.rf.i386.rpm
http://ftp.freshrpms.net/pub/dag/dri...86/RPMS.dries/
http://ftp.freshrpms.net/pub/dag/dri...c4.rf.i386.rpm

The second file is optional, but better have it than not.
Open a terminal and use first
Code:
rpm -Uvh --test chmlib-0.35-1.2.fc4.rf.i386.rpm chmlib-devel-0.35-1.2.fc4.rf.i386.rpm kchmviewer-1.0-1.2.fc4.rf.i386.rpm
to see if all goes well; if no error messages show up, re-type the command as root without the "--test" option

actually the package name is "kchmviewer"

first you need to do is install rpmfusion repositories (not sure if needed in this case, but good to have) using this command (as root)
$ rpm -ivh http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/...ble.noarch.rpm \
http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfr...ble.noarch.rpm
$ rpm --import /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-rpmfusion-*

then issue this command
$ yum install kchmviewer

--------------------------
If you need to know what other chm viewers are available in the repositories you could issue the following command
$yum search chm
This will list all packages with the string chm in their program name and their description.

Hope this helps

Regards
~Sameer

When i use this:
rpm --import /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-rpmfusion-*

Error like this:

error: /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-rpmfusion-free-fedora: import failed.
error: /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-rpmfusion-nonfree-fedora: import failed.

ok
forget this command
rpm --import /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-rpmfusion-*

and continue with the rest.

PS: yum need internet connection available to download packages from the online repositories
