    K3b is shipped with the Mandriva release, so install it using the package manager in the Mandriva Control Center. Alternatively, you can do
    Code:
    #urpmi k3b
    As for error you are getting, you need to install the xorg (or libxorg) devel (development) packages.

    i have mandriva 2007, when i type urpmi k3b it says command not found.
    i tried to searching for k3b in control centre but it doesn't seem to be there.
    i have got abit further by installing some other files it now says
    checking for KDE... configure: error:
    in the prefix, you've chosen, are no KDE headers installed. This will fail.
    So, check this please and use another prefix!
    i am now installing the xorg packages that you said but it takes ages on dial up.

    If you're still trying to use urpmi, you will need to become root in your terminal. Like this:

    su
    <enter_your_password>
    urpmi k3b

    That will only work if you have some repositories set up. It's the easiest way to install software. Installing from source is fine, but you won't notice any difference in performance really.

    If you look at the tutorials section of this site, you'll find a guide to using urpm. Reading that will take you a long way. Start here perhaps.
