I don't know much about Mandrake Linux. I've heard very bad things though. However, I wouldn't trust anything through hear/say. Anyway, I would assume you're attempting to do this as user root. If not, you'd better "su -" or log into root's account. Otherwise, it could be bad packages or a glitch in the software. Have you made sure you're using the most recent versions of everything?
