rpm error-> patch: command not found


I'm trying to use Mandrake 9.1 for connecting to internet. A few days ago all was OK, today I've deleted Mandrake and re-install it all. So now I try to load the module for my modem (Comtrend 35) and there's an error. It's like this:

root@localhost alicia]# rpm -Uvh /home/alicia/rpm/eagle-driver-1.0.4-1mdk.mdk91.i586.rpm
Preparing... ########################################### [100%]
1:eagle-driver ########################################### [100%]
/var/tmp/rpm-tmp.10164: line 36: patch: command not found

What can I do? The packet is installed (as I confirm with rpm -q), but then the installation fails in a later step.

I had the same problem.
All the advice I can give you, though, is to switch to Debian and type "apt-get install patch" as root. o_O

apt-get is the task for installing patch, isnīt it? I'll try with the one in mandrake, rpm. Thanks a lot!

Thanks!

Problem's gone!!! :-) Thanks!! Well, I used rpm instead of urpmi (I've used for running it better). Now all's OK!
