    Programs not in your package manager may still be available as rpm packages and can be found using search engines as rpmseek.com.
    Considering you are using Mandriva I'd say compiling from source is your last resort. If you have to do this - usually there are building instructions inside of source tarball.

    There is also RPM Search.

    What programs are you looking at that aren't available?
