Driver Install Problem


I have tried to install a video driver for my system. I have downloaded the rpm package from intel.

Logged on as root, and tried to install it as per the instructions

rpm -Uvh dripkg-1.0-4.i386.rpm
It shows a line saying -
Preparing ######### [100%]
then 1:dripkg ######## [100%]

then I get an error

Could not locate some required utilities: ed
Aborting.


I assume ed is telling me something, but I haven't got a clue what it means.

There's a RPM package Ed that comes in the CD 1 of Mandrake, you need to install that one

in situations like that, the first thing to do, is assume ed is a package dependency...
then toggle on down to www.google.com/linux and search "provides ed"
hopefully you will get a search result
"blahblahblah-xxx.xxx.rpm provies blah, blah, blah, ed

OR, you can go to rpmfind.net and search "ed"

and in you case... it seems this assumption may be correct....

ed is a text editor, i have no idea hy a driver would need it... but its worth a try right..

rpm -qa | grep ed
will tell you if ed is already install, if not...

donwload
ftp://216.254.0.38/linux/PLD/current....2-34.i386.rpm

then re-try to install the driver.
