bbkeys won't install under Mandrake 9.1

I had to re-install Mandrake 9.1 today. I use Blackbox window manager and have been using bbkeys for shortcuts with Blackbox, and it was working perfectly under Mandrake 9.0 and later 9.1, till I re-installed 9.1 today. Now, going to reinstall bbkeys, I get the message from urpmi:
"installation failed perl (integer) is needed by bbkeys 0.8.6-1"

There are dozens of perl modules available on the installation CD. Can anybody tell me exactly what I need to install? And any guesses as to why there was no problem formerly, when I upgraded from 9.0 to 9.1, but now I can't install bbkeys with a fresh installation of 9.1?

Well, looks like I'll get to answer my own question.

The author of bbkeys kindly helped me out. If you're installing bbkeys from the .rpm, you can use the "--nodeps" flag and the installation succeeds.

Since this may well be a problem only with Mandrake, there's no reason not to use the .rpm installation.

Now if I can just fix a few other things that stopped working when I did this "upgrade."

Ok, dumb question. If I install a Mandrake kernel RPM, where does it install to? Kramer Linux - General 6 01-13-2004 09:39 PM
