Mandrake 9.1, various problems


Bit of background, installed MDK 9.1 the other day, nothing worked right on first install.. the install itself went ok but when I logged in as a user -nothing- would run at all, it seemed as tho most of KDE's accessories had never been installed.

Installed it a second time and now I can at least surf the web etc. But from my quickbrowser menu, the two submenus - Root and System Configuartion still say "Unable to Read Directory" - im assuming thats just an access issue on the user account Im on.

KSim crashes before it even loads.. as soon as I try and load it I get KDE's SIGSEGV dialog box up.. KDE System Guard loads but immediately cranks out error boxes saying I need to re-compile the kernel with support for the /proc Filesystem?

lastly.. How do I figure out what ip eth0 has been given by my dhcp? I tried running Netconf from root but when I clicked on the IP Configuartion button iwthin netconf, I got the hourglass indicator for about 5 mins so figured it had crashed..

Thanks,

cakes..

Don't know how to solve all your problems, but the IP issue I can help you with. Just issue ifconfig [interface] as root, and you'll get all the info you can wish for

I actually got the KSim/SIGSEGV error too, which is the main reason i read this thread, however its more interesting for me to find out why ipconfig gives this:
bash: ipconfig: command not found
when i type fx. "ipconfig eth0" in the konsole...

(although Bebo actually got it right here on this page...)

It's ifconfig not ipconfig

Seems i'm having Windows after spasms..
