Hi,

First is it KDE that you want to install using ./ or is it already installed and you want to add
extra programs and that gives you this error ?

Second : you don't need to use this procedure if you want to install simple stuff, only if there
is no rpm available for a program. rpm is the kind of 'packed' programs Mandriva uses.
In your install there must be MCC (Mandriva control center) and an icon to click to install
software.

Third : if you want extra software, go to this site : http://easyurpmi.zarb.org/
and just follow the instructions. You must install contrib, updates, plf free plf non-free,
the latter two giving you software to be able to play wmv, avi and all sort of codecs, with
a package called w32codecs.

Try also to have a look on this site at the Tutorials--> Applications, GUI---> compiling from source.

Hope that helps

cheers

If you get any errors regarding libraries/headers, then you have to install the development (devel) packages of the application/s listed as missing in you error message. In this case you need to install python-devel (libpython2.4-devel) package.

Go Here:
http://rpmfind.net/linux/rpm2html/se...mit=Search+...

Get this:
libpython2.4-devel-2.4-5mdk.i586.rpm

Root Terminal:
# rpm -i libpython2.4-devel-2.4-5mdk.i586.rpm

Why not just use urpmi? It will automatically resolve any dependencies, whereas if you do a manual installation, you have to resolve those dependencies yourself and this leads to the so called "dependency hell".
