Suggestion 1: Drop the word "well" from your vocabulary. It wastes both your time and your reader's time.

Suggestion 2: Learn to use your "shift" key properly. Linux is a case-sensitive system, and failure to properly use a letter's case in a command can have catastrophic results.

Suggestion 3: Consider putting more details in your question. First, what do you want to record? You say you want a "desktop recorder," but it's not clear to me what you want to "record." Do you want a screen image? Do you want a record of the X-window transaction(s)? Do you want a "movie" of a desktop session? Or do you want a audio recorder?

O.K.

Look at byzanz, istanbul or gtk-recordmydesktop.

Note: I've never tried any of these. I just used yumex to search for "desktop recorder" and those ones popped up.

On Mandriva, wouldn't you just ask the package manager to download them for you? Look into the Mandriva repositories, or Google the package name and Mandriva.

And, as I mentioned in my post, I've never used any of them, so I can't make any recommendations. (Except, from the descriptions, istanbull creates its output using a format with a published specification, while byzanz uses a propitiatory format (GIF - presumably "active" GIF), and the recordmydesktop one sounded like you might get an output format option. Microsoft products often refuse to work correctly with things which conform to standard, published, specifications.)

have you used yum before gundumfx? Just open a terminal window and type "sudo yum search desktop recorder" without the quotes. If you aren't in the sudoers list then "su - root" and type the root password then as root type "yum search desktop recorder" once again without the quotes.

when u say you put in the command "sudo yum search desktop recorder" and nothing came out did it literally not print anything to your screen? Or did you not find anything in the list that was useful to you? First do "su - root" without quotes so that you are the root user. Then just do "yum search desktop recorder" without quotes and without the sudo command. Should show it's downloading some metafiles then shoot out a huge list of stuff you can download. If you need to, copy/paste some output here so I can see what you're talking about.

Here made it easy for you and googled "linux desktop recorder". First one that came up was Istanbul which PTrenholme wrote above. Seems easy to use and is available on yum. Just 'su - root' without quotes and type this exact command 'yum -y install istanbul' without quotes.

Here's an excerpt from what would popup if you typed 'yum info istanbul'

istanbul.i386 0.2.2-2.fc7 fedora
Matched from:
istanbul
Istanbul is a desktop session recorder. You can use it to record your
desktop session and then play it back for demos, tutorials and
presentations. Sessions are recorded to ogg theora files for later
playback.
