  1. Dependencies

    So, I'm using urpmi to install local RPMs of RealPlayer and Picasa and
    hit one of the things that used to stump me when I used LE2005, the
    number of choices you're given for dependencies! If it stumps me then it's
    sure to stump a real newbie (I'm a false or perpetual newbie!)

    [root@localhost Desktop]# urpmi RealPlayer11GOLD.rpm
    picasa-3.0.5719-02.i386.rpm

    In order to satisfy the 'sendmail-command' dependency, one of the
    following packages is needed:

    1- postfix-2.5.5-2mdv2009.0.i586: Postfix Mail Transport Agent (to
    install)
    2- msmtp-1.4.16-1mdv2009.0.i586: An SMTP client (to install)
    3- sendmail-8.14.3-2mdv2009.0.i586: A widely used Mail Transport Agent
    (MTA) (to install)
    4- exim-4.69-1mdv2009.0.i586: The exim mail transfer agent (to install)
    5- nbsmtp-1.00-4mdv2009.0.i586: nbSMTP: no-brainer SMTP (to install)
    6- masqmail-0.2.18-10mdv2009.0.i586: Offline Mail Transfert Agent (to
    install)
    7- ssmtp-2.62-2mdv2009.0.i586: A minimal mail-transfer agent which
    forwards mail to an SMTP server (to install)
    8- mini_sendmail-1.3.5-7mdv2009.0.i586: Accept email on behalf of real
    sendmail (to install)
    9- esmtp-0.6.0-2mdv2009.0.i586: User configurable relay-only Mail
    Transfer Agent (MTA) (to install)

    What is your choice? (1-9)

    So, what's a noob to choose? I've never had to install any of these
    before, one of them was obviously installed automatically in the other
    distros I've used, but I don't know what one of the nine!

    I'm inclined to go with number 3...

    2005, 2006, 2007.0, 2007.1, 2008.0, 2008.1, 2009.0.

    2005? Not supported any more.

    I didn't say I was using 2005, I did say "I used 2005" but that was a long
    time ago

    I suppose I should have mentioned that I was using 2009, but I already
    posted another thread saying I'd installed it to get rid of OpenSUSE 11,
    which was bugging me... I may have to switch back though, because one
    package I rely on is not available for Mandriva and I hear that compiling
    it is a nightmare. It would be doubly so for me as I've never compiled
    anything in my life and would prefer not to start.

    I have no other choices unfortunately, there's a bug in the Xorg Radeon
    driver, which in Fedora 9 the driver can't see the DVI port of my old
    Radeon 7200 card and in Ubuntu based distros, all the colours are
    reversed so it looks something from the psychedelic 60's Funny how it
    works fine in OpenSUSE and Mandriva though! I filed a bug report last
    December, but nothing has happened almost one year on

    Anyway, thanks for taking an interest.

    And you expect everyone to remember what you installed. Yuck.

    Not to mention there is the Free, KDE, GNOME selection for i586 and
    x86_64 bit systems.

    To improve your Usenet experience, you may want to read
    http://www.catb.org/~esr/faqs/smart-questions.html

    As to your problem, pick postfix.

    What you could do is add something like
    Running KDE on Mandriva 2009.0 (Official) for i586
    to your .signature file.

    On mandriva the standard is 1-- postfix. That is the mailer that the
    default system install installs. It is surprizing it did not do so.
    Anyway all those packages supply sendmail so mandriva has no idea which one
    you want.

    And that one package is? YOu know it is not available how? Mandriva has
    about 20 GB of packages available to it. (main,contrib,non-free,restricted,
    plf-free plf-restricted) and the chances that your program is not amongst
    those is very small.

    Sounds like a configuration of the xorg.conf file. A comparison of that
    file in the various distros might be revealing.

    Because it's not in the repos, Google doesn't turn anything up, the only
    RPM on the project homepage is for an older version, not the current and
    is packaged for FC4 and the only RPMs listed on pmbone.net are for SUSE.

    In fact, in OpenSUSE, when you install Japanese language support it gets
    installed automatically! If only it wasn't connected to Novell

    No, it's a bug and has been reported by both Fedora and Ubuntu users.
