Mandrake Update/Install Packages/Remove Packages


Recently I installed Samba 3 from the Mandrake Cooker and it required I remove Drakxtools because of some conflict or something. So I let it, then I seem to have lost the programs to Install Packages, Remove Packages, Mandrake Update, Browse Available Packages, Source Manager, and so forth, or at least the shortcuts. So I installed the new Drakxtools (v. 10) from the Cooker but did not seem to get those back. What package got uninstalled that I need to reinstall to get those programs back?

Im a newbie at this, but Im going to take a guess.

You could always just add the sources again through the source manager. I dont know how its listed verbatim right now (at work) but its in the same place where you can Browse, Install, Remove, etc. "Software Sources Manager" or something of that nature. Just add the CDs or URLs and it should get the source listings back.

Actually I figured it out, I remembered that whenever I opened those windows the titlebar always said rpmdrake so I looked and it had been uninstalled so I just reinstalled rpmdrake and they all came back. So now all good :-).
