go to the console and type
CODE
ipkg install /path/to/ipk/package_name.ipk


You'll also get a lot more feedback about what went wrong than qinstall gives

corrupt package is always a possibility. I've had some several times when testing KDEPIM. Download it again and retry.

You can also test the "corruption" of an ipk by trying to read/open it directly with tar.

CODE
tar tzf package.ipk

Should return 3 files
./control.tar.gz
./data.tar.gz
./debian-binary

If that fails then most probably have picked up a corruption during download OR you have a ar compressed ipk. use "file" to find out what type of ipk you have, for Sharp compatible ipk you should get "gzip compressed data" or something indicating it has been gzipped. If it says something about "debian" or "ar compressed" then you have the wrong kind of ipk and will need to convert it.

The other option (and one that happens a lot when I'm forced to use IE) is that the browser gunzipped the ipk for you during download (this will show as "tar" with "file")
