well im very new to linux, and i have just installed mandriva 2006 that is the free version.
my problem is that when i down load rpm files,both (real player and java) i cant find them at all, not the file i down load but after it says "installing"i cant find the real player. where did it go or am i missing something. i know i have been spoiled in winxp but i did atleast expect instals to be a fairly simple affair.
anyone shed some light on how to get real player to work as i want to use it to listen to the bbc radio stations with firefox.
ty in advance colin.:confused:
