There HAS to be a beter way!
DEPENDENCIES, OMG! I have installed mandriva just fine, I downloaded all the source codes for all the things want to do, and have been configing making and then finding it in what ever the hell directory it decided to install to and manage to make a shortcut and shove it in my "kicker" bar and/or remembering the command(s) TILL MY EYES BLEED!!!! My mother and brother think i have finally lost it, coming home to my dark room where the only source of light is the soft glow of my case's leds! Please tell me there is a a quicker/easer/ way of installing stuff. Theres the mandrake installer, but while theres a lot of neet stuff there theres not everything. Apparently theres something called konsturct but i cant find it. I know i really haven t truly stated a solid question and ive only been using linux( i uninstalld windows completely) for a little over a week, so i still have a lot of reading to do. Props out to the people on various irc rooms for there help(at least i now know there are people capable of asking dumber questions than i) So please post your thoughts/susgustions/STFUs&RTFMs k thanks!
