:linux noob:Don't Know how to install bibletime in SuSE 9.2
new to linux
used to windows
the only program that I have installed outside of the distro is firefox
downloaded the bibletime suse 9.2 rpm
click install with YaST...says "reading package" or something and then blinks off
Open YaST and goto install package "import" the rpm
it says error reading file
do i need to download the SWORD engine first or is it included in the install?
I heartily admit I don't know what I'm doing
but I reallly want this program
any help much apprec.

You need to install the Sword package first. It's on the BibleTime download page. Make sure you download the packages for SuSE 9.2.

If it doesn't work please include detailed error messages from the programs.
What does it give if you do the following:
press ALT+F2 and enter "konsole"
enter "su -"
go to the dir which contains the files, e.g. "cd /home/gub/Downloads/"
enter "rpm -i sword-1.5.7a-1.suse9.2.i586.rpm"
enter "rpm -i bibletime-1.4.1-1.suse9.2.i586.rpm"

What does it tell you? Please note that you only need to do these difficult steps if the installation with the graphical tools doesn't work.

Let us know,

Thank you for your reply-
I didn't know that I needed to install the sword rpm first
But I did and have the same problem when it comes to the bibletime rpm
I tried installing both via YaST the sword package worked fine
but there was no difference in the experience with the bibletime package
After that I tried via the terminal as you suggested and I was informed that I had already installed the sword package, of course, but nothing happen when I tried to rpm -U the bibletime package
what do i try next?
