Aoa
I am using Linux and it is working fine. But I have a problem I cannot install any software in mandrake, because it shows the message that Permission is denied. Can you tell me how can I install. I am using Mandrake 9.1. and KDE user interface.

Yes, try using the root account to install packages.

You can change to root account directly from console by giving this command:

su

or

su root
