urpmi is probably your best bet for Mandriva 2005 (IIRC). So try this:

urpmi python-wxgtk2.8 pyro mercurial build-essential bison flex python-numpy

You might have to fiddle with the package names a bit, I'm not sure quite what they are in Mandriva 2005.

See Mandriva urpmi docs for more information.

You need to run it as root (or with sudo), were you? – ed. Sep 12 '11 at 13:27
