Thanks for the quick fix. Just successfully installed Iceape 2.0.14 and all dependencies. After I removed the "%u" from the exec line of the desktop file Iceape opens up with the Mageia homepage. Other than no icon in the menu the packages installed and are working fine. Thanks again.

"I have downloaded the ISO and the devx files, but for the life of me, I cannot find the patched kernel source SFS so I can try to install the driver for my Nvidia GeForce 6150SE video card. It is in the list of supported cards, but it seems that no driver PET package has been compiled for use with kernel So, do you have a kernel_src- file for use with drake? I want to try to compile the Nvidia driver package.

"8-bit, Don't bother to compile a driver. I have only used the kernel temporarily, will compile later kernel very soon, for next Mageia build.
