    Hi and Welcome !

    If your machine has internet access then there is not need to install pacakges from source.
    Execute this
    Code:
    urpmi <package_name>
    to install packages.
    Or use easy urpmi.

    Check here for detailed instructions on package installation.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
