Installing From Linux

Recommended Posts

If you're using mandrake it's best to use urpmi. Going [url="http://www.overclockersclub.com/link/?http://easyurpmi.zarb.org/"]here[/url] and following through with the steps listed will get a database set up which will allow you to install rpms by simply typing "#urpmi <name_of_software>". It'll also search for the dependencies and install them as well.

Edit: I know that this poster has likely dealt with their problem I'm just answering for future reference.

As an add on to this, you can also do the same with YUM and APT..
ie: yum install gaim / apt-get install gaim
That should download and install gaim and its dependancies.. :)
