uninstall the conflicting packages, and install the newer ones - be prepared for a few applications likely to need recompiled due to backwards compatibility issues though

rpm -e uninstalld packages, and you can use rpm -U to upgrade packages you already have installed. As for your second problem, try 'make clean' and then make -- just a shot.

yeah i think i got it to work, thanks

also, when i try to install the MAD mp3 driver, it tells me that "no acceptable C compiler found in $PATH" but i know for a fact that i have a c compiler installed because other installations have used it. what's going on?

also, (i feel really stupid )

with pathnames what do you type if the directory or file has spaces in between?

like if you're trying to cd dir to 'Program Files'
