Well Synaptic is unable to install downloaded packages, both on F9, and F10 on 
my machine. I have posted a bug report for the synaptic problem on F9, but as 
I've just said, I havn't posted a bug report for synaptic on F10, as I wanted 
to get some confirmation of the problem first.

And for your information, I've been using apt, and synaptic since Fedora Core 
1, with no problems. Apt has had no problems on F9, apart from a little 
glitch (updates I think), but synaptic since F9 has been able to download 
packages, but not able to install them (MD5 missmatch problems). Synaptic can 
remove packages with no problem. there just appears to be a problem with 
installing them, at least for me, and some others that also filed a bug 
report against synaptic on F9.

I'll find the bug report, and post the link.

If synaptic is working ok for you on F9, this is a really weird problem that I 
have on both my F9, and F10 installs.
