Hi, just installed Mandrake 10. Got extra CD full of applications but when i right click the RPM and select "software installer" the icon appears to refresh and does nothing...also copied the rpm over to HDD but still won't workDefinately something i'm doing wrong but can't work out what...also logged on as "root"any help, thanks in advance...
To logon as root open a terminal.Type: suTap enter.Enter the root password...tap enter.*To install the RPM, type:cd /the/path/to/the/rpm/fileThen type:rpm -i rpmfilenametap enter.[i think]
If you look in the programs you will find the installer for things on the CD it will tell what is installed and things you can load if you have the files on disc. it will even tell you what disc to put in

Terminal, Su then <password>, typed "urpmi" without quotes as it didn't appear to be installed, then "rpm -i <filename>.rpm and it worked.After using the "urpmi" command, Woodchips suggestion worked, although i didn't know that menu option existed, as i only did terminals at uni and this is the first time i've installed it at home.btw:cheers for the Samba tip...
cheers for the link, just unpacked my first tar.gz archive, now all that XDR and LF/CRLF they taught us is falling into place.Woodchip, thanks, that saves a bit of time...
