We don't really support Mandrake 9.2 because it's so new. We do support
Mandrake 9.1, and it's very possible that packages for Mandrake 9.1 will
work on 9.2.

A lot of people assume that RPMs will work across different
distributions. This is really quite wrong. The reason why you're seeing
these messages is because Mandrake doesn't provide packages with the
names 'libgnomecanvas' or 'libglade'. The Mandrake equivalent names are
'libglade2.0_0' and 'libgnomecanvas2_0'.

If you use the Mandrake specific packages in
http://primates.ximian.com/~duncan/release/mandrake-91-i586, you
shouldn't seen these errors.

If you use Red Carpet, it'll download all the dependencies with you.
Mandrake also ships with its own package management tool that'll do
something similar.

I know some people like Anjuta a lot.
