No "Configure Computer"


I installed MDK 9.2 on an older spare computer several times and it keeps omitting the "Configure Computer" catagory in the KDE menu. No "MenuDrake" either. "/usr/sbin/drakconf" doesn't bring it up either, "no file or directory". Ideas?

So the programs exist???
Try running mcc from a terminal as root and see if it works. Also try running rpmdrake.

Thanks for the replies but neither worked. I reinstalled again and it came up the same with no way to access Mandrake Control Center. Can't set up the internet or anything. Maybe my computer is too slow and old to use MDK? 266 pros, 96 M ram.

Okay, so you tried running mcc from the terminal as root? Right, that means that it isn't installed. Type "urpmi drakconf grpmi rpmdrake" as root, thatt should install the needed packages.
There may be a few more though.

Got "Configure" going, now I need to find "packaging" to delete some of the larger stuff for this old OS. Thanks for the replies.

Um, what do you mean, too big, maybe that the resolution is too low. Go to configure computer->Hardware->Screen Resloution. If screen resolution isn't there then it's somewhere there.

Thanks again. How about this, I can't get kppp to work, "can't find modem". In console when I type "kppp" I get "Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0". Ideas?

Does it open when you open it from the menu?

Yes, it opens, sets up, but I get "The modem does not respond".
