Have you tried downloading and installing it?
binaries can be found at
source (IMHO the best way to go) are at
instructions for compilition and installation are at
If you are having a specific problem with any of these methods please post details of the problem. All error messages are REALLY REALLY !!!! useful. Also details of hardware/software setup help reduce the guess ratio <g>.

I got ManDrake 8.1 working with KDE 3.0. Just download the rpms from one the mirror sites and use the following switches with rpm
rpm --nodeps --force package-to-install.rpm

Now, here's the problem...for some reason if you try to uninstall the package..the rpm database will not find the newly installed package, for some odd reason.
