Mandrake 9.0 mistakenly reports that packages are installed
I'm trying to put The Gimp on my Toshiba Portege laptop, running Mandrake 9.0. The rpm doesn't work because of missing/misplaced dependancies, ditto the tarball. Usually my solution with Drake (and especially with a common app like this one) is to install it from the CD using rpmdrake.
However, whenever I try, the installer selects Gimp and all of its dependancies, attempts to install them (the CD spins up), and then a popup box reports that "All packages are already installed (Is this supposed to happen?)". I've done a through search using locate and Drake's Software Management, and the only Gimp-related app installed is gimp-print.
How do I update/clear the list of things Mandrake thinks are installed??
