    Hello and Welcome!

    I'm not a RuneScape player, so I can't give details there. But for your second post, you'll need to install Rhino.
    Depending on your version of Mandriva, it may be available in your package manager.
    Try this in a terminal window:
    Code:
    urpmi rhino

    A terminal is similar to a command prompt in Windows. Type in your commands to get things done.
    Take a look in your Applications menu. You should see something in there called Konsole.
    Once it's open, you'll need to have root permissions to install software. So first:
    Code:
    su -
    <enter root password>
    urpmi rhino

    As a new Linux user, also new to Mandriva, take a look here: http://www.linuxforums.org/forum/lin...tml#post344059

    Some good info to be had there regarding software installation.

    When typing a password in the terminal, nothing is echoed (or displayed) on the screen.
    That's a built-in security feature of Linux.
