I have updated a large number of KDE files after configuring my urpmi sources as per an article here and www.linuxfordummies.org/addmedia/
I went through a medium size version of "rpm hell" but by uninstalling packages where there were conflicts and then installing the latest versions all was well (or seems to be) EXCEPT that I cannot start drakconf as a normal user.
If I try from the menu I see a button "starting Configure your Computer" which then vanishes. If I try it from a shell I get the following message:
kdesu: Unknown option '--ignorebutton'.
Same thing happens with harddrake2
If, in the shell I log in as su then drakconf and harddrake run OK. Similarly if I startx as root they will run OK from the start menu.
Can anybody help please? And is this a synptom of something more serious?
