A tar.gz is just like a zip or rar file.
In most distros, you can just double-click it, and unpack it from there.

Or type

Code: Select all

tar -xvzf filename.tar.gz
in the terminal.

But it's most likely to be source code and not precompiled.
Just Google around for some guides on how to compile stuff on Mandriva.

I found this guide:

There are Fedora rpm's over at http://www.digitalruin.net/

You might be able to get the rpm's working on Mandriva without any tweaking, but if not, a src.rpm is provided that will enable you to build on your own platform. Once you have the necessary development tools (gcc gcc-c++) just run rpmbuild --rebuild xxx.src.rpm

Depending on the differences between Mandriva and Fedora it might work right away, or you might have some issues.
