I'm probably stupid - maybe it's just caused by using windows since win 3.1 and something even before that, but I have a problem with switching into linux. I love my Mandriva, it's much better than anything else (fedora core 3 is evil) but when I try to install something new there's always something that I don't have on my disc and I have to find it and even when I find it, its not working so I'm tired because of all this things. Right now I have a double problem - I'm trying to install something - I have RPM and tgz version... I've tried both... and this is what I got:
- RPM can't be installed due to lack of linux-gate (what the hell is it and how to install or create it??)
- .tgz version needs python headers an I don't know which library's missing cause I've installed so many that I don't know which is which...
any of you can take me by the hand and lead through this compilations, installations and all of this creepy things??
