The binary packages we ship out are the result of
volunteer work. We ship out what our users and
developers ship in. The fact that we have no Mandrake
packages means that no one with a Mandrake machine has
sent us any binaries.
Since Mandrake and RedHat both use the RPM packaging
format and run on i386, sometimes people install RPMs
meant for RedHat on a Mandrake box. In fact, many of
our users have done so on this very mailing list. And
you know what - it doesn't work because of
incompatible versions of many libraries on the
different systems. It's a pain to support and won't
work. Hub was trying to save you all some time and
frustration. Cut him some slack.
