Packages for Mandriva can be found both in the contrib repository, and in the MandrivaClubNL repository.

Contrib is an official Mandriva repository, but is usually not updated to the latest version.

MandrivaClubNL is the repository of the Duth MandrivaClub

After you have set up your sources right, you can install Freevo, simply by typing this command:

# urpmi freevo

How to set up the contrib or MCNL source

Just issue the command for the Contrib or MandrivaClubNL source below, and your ready to go. Note that the commands are all 1 single line!!

# urpmi freevo

Configuring repositories

Note: you may have to configure software repositories for urpmi. There is a wizard called easy urpmi to assist in this task (see http://www.urpmi-addmedia.org/). You should have sources for Contrib & possibly PLF for things like decss.

Known issues

Issues: There's a problem with the PIL library on mandrake 10.1 so if you can't see images thumbnails or folders the problem may come from there.

To get it to work, downgrade the python-imaging package on Mandrake to release #3 (python-imaging-1.1.4-3mdk) which can be found in the main RPMS tree of the mandrake 10.0 version and works like a charm.

do as root :

# urpme python-imaging
# curl
/RPMS/python-imaging-1.1.4-3mdk.i586.rpm -o python-imaging-1.1.4-3mdk.i586.rpm
# urmpi python-imaging-1.1.4-3mdk.i586.rpm

(Example with a German repositorie of mandrake 10.0, for an i586 install)

Note: Mandrake 10.1 comes with freevo version 1.5.1. As of 25 Jan 2005 updated packages are available for cooker (1.5.3 at the moment).
