So many problems......


All I want to do is play some games.....
I installed Mandrake Linux 10.1 the other day. Since I'm switching from windows, there are a few applications that I've grown attached to that I cannot access on linux (photoshop to name one). I knew of Wine and decided to get it. When installing I got this problem.
Code:
checking for flex... no
checking for lex... no
checking for yywrap in -lfl... no
checking for yywrap in -ll... no
checking for :... no
checking for flex... no
checking for lex... no
configure: error: no suitable lex found. Please install the 'flex' package.
I searched around and found flex When trying that, I got this problem.
Code:
yacc -d ./parse.y
make: yacc: Command not found
make: *** [parse.c] Error 127
So I looked around for yacc.... I couldn't find yacc but learned of bison and byacc. Both failed miserably and I got the same error when installing flex. I tried installing rpms for byacc and bison, which also yielded the same error in flex. I tried installing an rpm for flex which had the same error for wine. I tried installing an rpm for wine which had this error.
Code:
error: Failed dependencies:
        libstdc++.so.6 is needed by wine-20041201-mdk

Before going any further with this wild goose chase I seek help from forum people. I have always gotten the best answers out of forums from problems compiling a C++ program to what animes are good. I have trust in the words of forum goers.

Try to install Wine with Mandrake's included utility. It installs all package dependencies automatically. You need to configure it first by providing a list of mirrors to get stuff from, check this page for. It's as easy as choosing a mirrors you want and then it generates a list of commands you need to run in console as root (all info is on the page). I believe it will work then. Good luck.

In main menu there is Install Software entry. Before you use it, go to the Easy Urpmi (the link i posted) and choose a mirrors... Then it outputs a list of commands and says "type it in console as root". Open Konsole and become root by typing 'su' and entering your root password. Then copy a commands provided by Easy Urpmi and paste it in Konsole. Hit enter...let it finish and then go to main menu and hit Install Software. It asks you for your root password since only root can install new programs in Linux, type your root password and click ok. It opens a window when you can choose packages you want to install. Search for Wine and click on it. Then it says something like "To satisfy dependencies following packages must be installed:" and outputs a list of needed packages. You may read this list if you want to know what Wine depends on, or just click ok and let it go.
I think googling for something like "installing software in Mandrake" is not bad idea at all. You may find loads of useful information in the web, more than i can provide you in one forum post.

-_- You're making me feel stupid here... I still can't find urmpi. I'm using KDE. The only "main menu" I can think to go to is the one that resembles a start menu.
I have no problem using the console commands, though. I know how to do that part. I know how to switch to root and all that too. It's just the actual use of urmpi that confuses me.

It's not called urpmi, it's "Install software" or "Install packages" (sorry, i don't remember how exactly it's called on Mandrake). Don't feel stupid, just go to start menu and look for it.

Are you sure you're talking about in KDE? KDE has no such option under their menu.
