Hrmm, well i've been trying to install several applications (grip, k3b, mplayer, edonkey) mostly from the "rpmdrake". I've also been trying to get my wirless card working with dirvers from linux-wlan.com (with no success i might add)
. I've been having to log in as root to so some things. I'm very new to linux, I guess theres no telling what happened. I think I'm going to switch to red hat though. There seems to be much more rpm packages for it. This ./configure, make, make install thing is kinda hit and miss.
