Didn't install Graphic Interface

I did a stupid thing and didn't install a graphic interface with Mandrake 9.1. I don't know how to install one from the command prompt.

I did some looking around once I was stuck at the command propt to try to figure it out, but I couldn't find anything in the mandrake documentation that was helpful at all, and a few forum searches haven't turned anything up either.

Are there any options besides a complete reinstall?

Thanks for any help. It's much appreciated.

This is Linux, a re-install is almost NEVER
warranted :} ... I don't know MDK's naming
conventions too well...

Try whether "rpmdrake" or "drakconf" works for you.

check which tools with drak in the name
there are installed:
locate -i drak | grep bin

If locate isn't installed, try
find / -iname "*drak*" | grep bin

If find isn't installed, either, try the
following few directoriers, and see whether
draktools are to be found there
In each of these, try
ls *drak*

Good luck!
