thats odd, make sure that you are sued into root when you try them, and that you have selected the commands correct for the version of Mandrake you are using, that site was the only refernce i ever used for urpmi. as far as buulding from source, just look for a .tar or .tar.bz2 or .tar.gz file and download it, you will then decompress it, and we will then make it using command probably something like thisCode:
./configure make make install

Thank you for following up with me. I usaully install things as root when necessary.
Maybe the problem in using easyurpmi is that I am using an Athlon 64? I thought that i586 architecture would be fine to select.
I believe you can build from source by issuing:
./configure && make && make install

OOO definetly, any of the x86 packages wont work with the amd 64. you will have to compile from source, every package is a little differnt, but read the README and you should get a general idea, if you have more questions, feel free to post again!

ATI Drivers Sound
Thanks for your ongoing willingness to help.
I have managed to add at least one more urpmi source for 64 bit.
My main goal now is to get my sound going and then maybe the TV/3D Gaphics working. So far there are often dependency problems with the packages I have tried.
It would be at least a start to get my sound going. The sound card is a Soundblaster Audigy LS, and my ATI A-I-W is plugged into it.
I found a package from ALSA for the soundcard (1.6 rc from http://www.alsa-project.org/) but there was yet another dependency issue. Is there some way to deal with these? There always seem to be missing "lib-something/xxxx.so" files that are not easy to track down and install.
It is a real discouragement to not have any sound working! No music!! Plus, games are a dead duck without any sound and acceleration.
My specs full are below, just so you won't have to scroll up again(!)
