Crikey: what a day. I installed Mandrake 7.1 on my home box, complete with kde 2 beta, and xfree86 4.01. It was a pain, to say the least. If I ever get my hands on the idiot at mandrakesoft who decided that the gtk-devel and xpm packages don't need to go on the CD, it won't be pleasant. I think I have it all fixed up now, except for a few issues. Yay for kde2, it kicks ass.
