Cheops, Mandrake, and wondering why why why?

I ran an RPM for cheops it went in with no dependancy problems or any errors. Im now wondering where the hell it is cause Ive looked everywhere it logically should be [ie:[in the applications section]. Im running Mandrake 9. Did rpm {--help} - man rpm - googled it for an hour or so. Im curious why it simply isnt on any of the menus? I dont want to play hide and go seek with it but Cheops just dosent understand when I tell it to stop hideing and get its ass on a menu. I have a feeling this will be some termanal thingy like rpm: {--run cheops because its hideing god dammit} thing.

Open a terminal and type "cheops". That should run the program.

The executable file is probably in /usr/bin.

If not, type "locate cheops" in terminal to find it.

This probably won't work immediately after installing something because the locate database won't have been rebuilt with the new entry in it.

Run 'updatedb' first and then try the locate command.

Thanks I found it but when I try and execute it a whole lot of nothing happens. I get no errors and I also get absolutly nothing but I can hear the HD grinding away like its doing something till it stops. I also tried to put in etherape tells me conflics were detected 6(GLIBC_2.3) is needeed by etherape. Easy enough I tell myself Ill just put in GLIBC_2.3 says its already in. Beeeeearg! Im downloading Mandrake 10 after I install it Ill start over. Im sure Ill be back with more why questions.
