not at all
condescending is telling you that you apparently couldn't see past that
sentence to the one that followed which told you what to do.
condescending is telling you that you really need to learn to ask
questions the smart way...
condescending is telling you in bite size chunks that you might be able
to understand...Linux uses plain text configuration files. You can edit
them or move them aside if you feel that it is a configuration problem.
Linux applications report standard output and error output directly into
the console that launched them so you actually have an opportunity to
see it report an error. If that fails, you can strace the process (hint
- type 'man strace')
Now, if you want to remove the rpm and then re-install it be my guest
but that is typically the methodology of troubleshooting Windows
applications since there really aren't any tools to do that.
