I have recently inherited a Mardriva box (thanks, JS) and need to install software on it. My Mandriva knowledge is nill. It appears that it supports the RPM package manager.
Question: Are all RPM packages the same? For instance, I wish to install the TightVNC package and can find RedHat rpms easily. Can/will RedHat rpms install properly? The answer to my is question is to try it - which I will do once it press "send". I wondering if there is any danger / gotchas to this. My concern is that the rpms are labeled "RedHat" but I see no other distros named in this fashion.
