Evidently not.

"Rawhide" is the term used for the development version of Fedora Core,
which will soon (probably Monday) be branched to form Fedora Core 5.
It's the whole distribution, not a single package. The one you've
installed contains information about which yum repos to use for the
distribution (amongst other things), so you will probably find that next
time you do a "yum update", it will want to update almost everything
(i.e. take you almost all the way to FC5). Assuming that that's not what
you want to do right now, you should fix that by downgrading this
package back to the FC4 version:

rpm -Uvh --oldpackage

What I meant for you to do was to download the source RPM package
from the rawhide area and rebuild it on your system and then install it.

It's possible that simply installing the binary RPM will work though,
which might save you some time:


If you have dependency problems when trying to install this, you'll
probably have to rebuild from the source package above. Don't use
"--nodeps" or "--force".
