You probably need to install either libglade and/or the libglade

I don't know details about Mandrake's Guppi RPMs.  However, it might be
easier for you to just install python on your system.  Guppi can be a
difficult thing to build.

Now that brings up something that I've found to be pretty strange.  When
they re-organized the GNOME FTP site a while ago, Guppi got put under
the "stable" part of the tree.  Which is totally wrong, because Guppi is
not "stable" in the sense of being complete, finished, bug-free, etc.
