commands in mandrake 9

when i try hdparm or Xconfigurator as either user or root i get "command not found"

Is it installed, run rpm -q hdparm
If you can't find it on one of your install CDs, you can go here to download http://rpmfind.net

ok
i ran rpm -q hdparm and it reported it as not installed, the same for Xconfigurator.
hdparm installed perfectly, just off to get Xconfigurator.

many thanks

I couldn't find them either... perhaps they are using a different program to do that. try downloading from rpmfind.net and intalling it...
