I know it's a daft question - but how do I install ALL the packages on the Mandrake 9.0 CD???

After a few problems with the cd, I did a minimal installation, with only KDE & GNOME selected, so I'd like to install all the usual packages like openoffice & all the internet/multimedia stuff.

When I go to add/remove programs, I get a list of all the stuff that isn't on the cd. All the stuff I want isn't there. How do I do this???

As root (or su to root) ...

# mount /dev/cdrom /cdrom

# cd /cdrom

(look for directory containing packages you want ...)

# rpm -ivh <full package name>

(You get a bunch of hashes '#' if it installs or a message on compatability or missing prerequisites. If you get a list, install those packages listed and their prerequisites)

(After all packages are installed that you want ....)

# cd /

# umount /dev/cdrom

Under Gnome there is a nice graphical RPM manager ... you could use that instead of command line as well. KDE should have this too, but I don't recall their names. Maybe a Google search on "gnome kde rpm manager"
