Ok, here the problem:
1. I downloaded mandriva linux free 2007
2. I burnt it onto a DVD
3. I booted the DVD
4. Clicked Install, kept freezing up so I now use the other install - ACPI (or something like that *cant remember)
5. It partitions and everything
6. It gets to start installing then after a few minutes:
AN ERROR OCCURRED
Error opening RPM database: cannot open
packages database in /mnt/var/lib/rpm
7. I've been looking up solutions and trying everything but nothing is working.
8. Please help!
