Installing wu-ftpd


I'm fairly new to Linux (about a week now). I've managed to set up Mandrake 8.2 on a P3 system I had lying around. I've gotten the webserver up and running, but the FTP server is a different beast. I had wu-ftpd installed originally, however it was acting a little odd so I removed it and downloaded a new version, however, now I can't install the new version. The manuals aren't that helpful, and the commands that they say will work in the installation guides aren't working. I was hoping someone in here might be able to help me install it and get it running.

Thanks in advance to anyone who can help me.

Welcome the LQ Forums I have never actualy worked with wu-ftpd but I run vsftpd on all my boxes
very secure file transfer protocol daemon

an rpm should be a fine start to installing it if you dont want to compile
when it is done type man vsftpd for information

just my suggestion on what I have had suggess with in the past, and what Might work well for you..
