I have nothing in particular against anybody except that I don't like people who think that because they use a certain distro, it is better than the others. This kind of posts get on my nerves : it means that if you don't use their own distro, you're stupid. And "our friend" kornerr had several of his previous posts reported to mods because precisely of that sort of things and the way he expressed his views...
Nothing personal, just respecting other people's choices, thats's all.

And I don't think he tried to help you, just expressed the fact he had the same problem...

Now, to help you : go back to the site you went to in the first place, that is : then

select this : urpmi.addmedia eslrahc with then

open a console : type su to become root, your password then

paste the urpmi command above. then

close your console, go to RPMDrake, choose install and then you will have Abiword, select it and the

dependencies will normally be resolved.

It is the best way to install software in MDK .

I cannot be clearer than that, I think

I DON'T SAY, "YOU'RE STUPID"... may be I said it once... or twice... at least now I DO NOT.
I SAY, "MDK DON'T CHANGE YOUR MIND TO LINUX". That's a great distro, but for ones who KNOWS HOW IT WORKS. It has many useful and convinient GUI apps, and Slack doesn't have them. BUT! It doesn't force you to learn Linux, because everything is done already.
Was willst du - kontrollieren oder... be controlled?

Thanks for punishing me anyway.

And I'm not "our friend".

I deeply appreciate your help. You are clever at these types of problems. Now I must go to the gym. I have some bad habits; I train thrice a week at a gym. The gym is far away from my home. So it takes a considerable amount of time. I will try this later in the day.

Please keep a good watch on this thread. I will be in touch with you all.

We should forget all the irrelevant things. Let bygones be bygones.
