I'm running Mandriva 2005LE, too - as supplied by CheepLinux, who also 
supplied the Mini-ITX system I'm running it on. I'm not running the OS as 
supplied by CheepLinux, though - I scrubbed that and repartitioned to add usr 
and var partitions, plus two swap partitions, and a sizable unpartitioned 
area.  Other than that, and removing Shorewall to replace it with Guarddog, 
it's a bog standard installation.  And Audacity is installed by default, and 
starts up fine...

Not a clue, here, I'm afraid. You obviously know far more about the deeper 
technical stuff than I do.

Hmmnn... let's see if I can find that out.. durn, only way I can see is by 
snapshotting the screen for removing programs. There must be a much better 
way to get the version numbers and in plain text, too.. if you can tell me 
how to do taht, please do! Otherwise, I could do snapshots of that screen and 
email 'em to you privately.
