    First become root:
    su (Return)
    Asks for password now ... nothing shown when typing ... (Return)

    Now change to the directory where the abc.rpm is:
    cd /home/myusername/software-packages (Return)

    Then install the package with:
    rpm -ivh abc.rpm (Return)
    (-i = install and vh = shows a nice progress bar)

    If installed make sure you leave root mode with:
    exit (Return)
