    Mandrake 9.2 Packages Gone

    i just freshly installed Mandrake 9.2 this afternoon. i selected all of the packages that i could expect for one or two. when i rebooted, none of them were installed apparently. i cant do anything with Linux but run it and change my volume control etc. should i reinstall Linux from scratch again or should i just install the packages. if only the packages how would i get the installation to only install that

    hi hybrid -
    welcome to linux junior and i would not reinstall - i would install them manually - i think mandrake has a utility to install packages and there shoudl be options for it, or you could pop in the CD, open a terminal, cd to the directory where tyhey are and do a rpm -Uvh *.rpm

    ah - did you do a hard drive install - well you can access the ISO - make a mount point and miount it, in a terminal it can be done like this:
    su - (enter roots password)
    mkdir /mnt/loop
    mount -o loop -t iso9660 /path/to/cdimage.iso /mnt/loop
    it can then be accessed at /mnt/loop
