Unhappy Installing Kylix2 on Mandrake 8.2

Has anyone tried it and been successful. I have only managed to
install the help files after running the borpretest which said
everything tested was ok.
When i install the IDE I get error -10 :
"Unable to install RPM file: ''"

then it aborts.
Has anyone else had this

The answer is to use the -m for the install script, so type in:
./ -m

Taken from Borland web site:
The Error -10 is a generic install error. The usual cause of this is due to a previous version of Kylix that wasn't uninstalled completely. Check the RPM database to see if there are still components from Kylix installed, use the command rpm -qa | grep kylix to check for installed packages. If there are any packages still on the system, use rpm -e < PACKAGE> to remove them. This can also be caused by a bug in the RPM manager that causes it to incorrectly check package dependancies. If this is the cause, then you can use the -m switch on the installer.
