I downloaded some files, containing linux tools, with name suffix ".ppc.rpm", but I don't know how to install such files.

What tool do I need?
Is it included in linux distribution?

Hi mliberi,

ppc stands for power pc (a mac)
So are you sure you downloaded the right file(s) ?

Most packages contain a name of the machine to run it on..
like x86, alpha, or ppc

If you run linux on a PowerPC then rpm -i file.ppc.rpm
If you don't run linux on a PowerPC then you cannot use these files.

b.t.w. rpm has to be installed (it's a packeg installer mostly used
on the redhat distribution of linux)
