    Red face Mandriva 2007 rpm dependencies


    Hi all,
    I just installed Mandriva 2007 (free DVD) in my friend's comp....
    well, i just know a few commands off the shell, & he knows none

    While installing, it gave errors installing some packages, all beginning with lib64 ... . after installation, kde booted up but logged out before 10 seconds and gave an error. I realized that I had to install these rpm's listed, so I downloaded them & installed them.
    After this, kde starts up peacefully.... and I can work there
    however, some things like xpdf & vlc wont install.. i believe its a problem with the truetype fonts.....
    So, I searched on the net, and realized that on giving those errors mandriva didn't install a whole lot of rpm's, just bcoz they were dependent


    Now here's my question:
    Given the list of rpm's corrupted, is it possible to find out which weren't installed? Perhaps I can install them from the DVD manually.....
    I spent a whole night on this, so I dont want to install again after burning a new DVD rom....

    rpm -a | grep "package_name"

    check manual of rpm.... man rpm

    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
