ok i am pretty good with ubuntu but decided to install Mardriva to dual boot with ubutnu but i must say im almost totally lost
first of all of the mandriva website that i downloaded my .iso from it says 2008, but the readme on the .iso says spring 2007. 126.96.36.199-desktop586 is what uname -r brings up...what d i have 2008 of spring 2007?
second i HATE kde and well of course thats what is default. all the gnome package are installed except the task-gnome. this should not be a problem but i cant figure out how to add this cd that i installed from into the repositories to get the task-gnome package. how do i install rpm's from the cd? when i browse the cd i dont see any rpm's. The reason i need to install from the CD is because i also need to get wvdial so i can figure out my only internet connection (winmodem that i have working well in gusty but get errors in mandriva).
SO once again to to recap...
1. how do i install rpms form the mandriva one cd that i downloaded o thier site?
2. when version do i have?
thanks for the help, it a little frustrating that im so lost just because of kde and a new distro but what can i say.....i guess im just lost.
also one thing i have noticed is that information on how to do things in mandriva is much harder to find than gusty....any link would be great....thanks again!
