Silly Newbie software install problem with GTK2

Hi all, uhm ok I'm such a loser I realize but I was just trying to install Drivel, a LiveJournal client, and on double clicking the rpm file I get this message.

Some package requested cannot be installed:
drivel-1.0.2-1.i386 (due to unsatisfied gtk2[>= 2.4.0])

So this sucks, I have no idea what to do next, uhm I tried looking around my available packages to install but it's such a huge list, I have no idea what to install or if it would work. I'm using mandrake 10.0 btw.

Anywhooo, any help with this would be great, I stoped using linux for awhile but getting back into it now, didn't realize how much I missed it, even with these sorts of problems, which are pretty much just cause im a dink with the software side so far.

Thanks for the help anyone .

Unless I am missing something.... you just need to install gtk2, version greater that or equal to 2.4.0 prior to installing drivel. I have never used drivel but I am sure it is just missing a dependency.
