Why would you want to install winamp ? , it's a windows program that needs wine to run.

:eek: :eek: oh now only saw that :p :D
what i really wanted was to know how to install a .rpm package. so i wanted to download something in .rpm. the first thing which came to my mind was winamp. :p. thats it.

any way thank you very much for giving me that code. i think here after i can use it only after changing the package name.

To install an rpm:

1) click on it and follow the prompts (graphical version of #2),
2) yum localinstall file.rpm (resolves dependencies automatically),
3) rpm -ivh file.rpm (installs if all dependencies are already present, fails otherwise).
