You need to  define what is not working.

1. What's your Linux operating system.
Slackware - uses tarball to install.
Debian - uses .deb packages
Madriva/CentoS/Fedora/Redhat/Yellowdog - uses RPM

2. Are you a root user ?
Non-root users have restricted access to rpm commands.

3. Is rpm installed ?
# rpm [ENTER]
