Can you send us the message?

Depending on how new you are, you might be confused about how to copy
and paste from a terminal--it works differently from some of those
cheap OSes. :) Just in case, here's how to do it: use the left mouse
button to drag out a selection, and then click the middle mouse button
where you want to paste. (If your mouse is a two-button, clicking both
buttons simultaneously should emulate the middle button.)
Another thing that I often do to send long error messages to people,
is run the "script" command. To see if you have it installed, type
"which script". If you see a path, like /usr/bin/script, then you
have it installed. Otherwise I'm sure it's on one of your Mandrake
CDs. Once you have "script" installed, you can simply type "script"
at the command line before running the problematic command. When the
command exits, hit Ctrl-D in the shell, and the entire output of the
command (along with everything you typed) will be captured in a file
called "typescript". You can then attach that file to an email.
