1. open a terminal and type 'gkrellm &'

or:

2. right click on desktop. choose 'run command'. type 'gkrellm' and hit enter.

edit:

Are you sure you installed it correctly? run 'rpm -q gkrellm' and make sure it is listed. If it is...then it would seem that it is installed somewhere outside of your path. To find it you could run:

updatedb

then:

locate gkrellm

Maybe it's gkrellm2 and it's launched with:
gkrellm2

Instead?

What happen when you "tried installing" urpmi?

Cool

It failed because of the usual dependency hell, but now I cant run any rpm's, and also, rpmdrake is gone in MDK user control panel
