Angry WHAT IS DISK 4????! mandrake 10


please forgive me, I have been sitting here -a linux noob- trying to install super karamba for 13 hours. I finally get to the point where I type in "make". It runs through then says I do not have python. So I try to install it with the installer and I get "insert disk 4", I have no disk 4 and can not find one. I even spent 3 hours trying to find the python rpm, and when I finally did it started installing then after several minutes asked for disk 4 again. I am literally about to go insane. How in gods name do I find this "disk4", why doesn't mandrake just say "we need disk 4 to continue to instal xxxxx.rpm, or would you like to browse to this rpm?" then atleast I could download it and use it. I AM IN LINUX NOOBIE HELL!

Disk 4 is about 700 mb of extra packages(programs) that only comes with community (or club?, Im a newbie too)membership. Here's a couple links you can download the ISO from:


http://mirror.averse.net/mandrake/i...ad-CD4.i586.iso

If you have a slow conection and you dont want to mess around downloading , you can hit cancel when install asks for disk 4, and add whatever packages you may need later, theyre readily available for download, just look for what you need with google. Here's one to start with:

http://rpmfind.net/linux/RPM/

Happy Linuxing, I've only had Linux up and running for a couple weeks, I don't know squat, and I'm already hooked! (I have WinXP on my Primary drive along with Linux, and Win98 on a slave drive and I havent been back to either one since. Except for once when I screwed up my serial port config and had to use Win to get online and find some answers.)

hmm, can anyone advise how to install python without needing disk4? I am extremely clueless so more detail the better. do i just download a python tar.gz and run ./config or something? if so where would they be? thanks

There should be install instructions in the tar file, or you might want to try and find Python in an rpm, just click the package and let it do the work.

a lot of packages don't have uninstall routines built in. i guess you'll just have 2 copies of python installed. do the rest of that stuff regardless.
it will install python in /usr instead of /usr/local which often makes building packages much easier.

whenever you change stuff like that, you should remove the config.cache file in what you are trying to compile, then configure again.
this time try
configure --prefix=/usr
