Installation on Mandrake 8.1 possible?

Hello all,

I have been trying everything to make Tamino install on a dated Mandrake 8.1-System. Kernel is 2.4.18-8.2mdkenterprise.

The first thing going wrong is the “su”-dialog, which times out. sudo seems to work, but then the installation dies but remains open while installing “Extended Transport Service” (0% progress and nothing happening). The logs include:

 reg_check_file(): registry file: MYSAGROOT/common/rgs/REGFILE not found 

It installs just fine on a Redhat 7.3-System, which unfortunately is not needed.

Is there any hope in trying to install Tamino on Mandrake 7.3?

Any help will be greatly appreciated.
