I have a tar.gz file that I am trying to install - In trying to convert it to a rpm file I extracted it to its own directory and ended up with a heap of .svg files - how do I install from here?

Running Mandriva One 2010, wireless works great in Live mode. When installed, I can only connect to unsecured networks (BTFon, BTOpenzone) but not to my own BTHomeHub network, which has a WPA key. I guess the problem is something to do with wpa_supplicant, but I'm not 100% sure what to do about it.
I'm using ubuntu, and I'd like my /var/log/syslog file to display unix_chkpwd lines, such as this one (which it doesn't do at the moment) :
Feb 6 04:20:40 www unix_chkpwd: password check failed for user (root)
I'd rather not install linux_pam unless really necessary because I already tried it and I've had quite a lot of problems with it.
I got to the part where I'm supposed to partition Mint. I've got a 500GB hard drive, and I thought I'd give 300GB to LM--but I'm unclear about using ext2, 3 or 4. What about the swap file? Is that automatic?

i have recently installed opengeu which is based upon ubuntu 8.04 but i need the deb package for the latest kernel as my terminal rejects any attempt of making it and without the kernel my net and few other bit dont work.
if anyone could send me a link to it i would be most grateful
Tired of not knowing anything except Windows. Bought a Dell mini with Ubuntu 8.04 installed on it and I'm working on learning Unix from the command line. This Forum ought to be helpful once I get a little further along.
I need a English dictionary to search meaning of words. I have done google searches as well as searched this forum but was unsuccessful in finding one. I am trying to find and install an offline dictionary i.e. it should work even if there is no internet connection. It should not be online dictionary.
