I've had this problem before. Wherein the file association for "rpm" is
associated with Real Player Media (aka rpm) and not Redhat Package Manager.
The solution I used as a workaround was to change the file assoc for "rpm" to
not be linked/directed to RealPlayer and to make sure that the rpm is
associated with YaST2.

If your using KDE as a desktop, go into Control Center (now "Personal
Setting") and then KDE components --> file association. In the search window
type "rpm" and make sure the x-rpm has yast2 as the "Application preference
order". This should solve the problem (and if FireFox is still cranky - USE

As far as I can tell the rpm being associated with Real Player is an older
association that should be fixed - one might assume that your using old
configs that need to be updated, as were mine before fixing this. Now I can
not find any association between RealPlayer and "rpm" as in RealPlayerMedia.

HTH, Curtis.
