Mandriva 2006 Free updates killed drakconf
I originally started with installing Mandriva LE 2005. Somewhere along the way of doing URMPI updates the system started reporting that it had become Mandriva 2006. Since I had a few issues (minor) with 2005, when the opportunity came to actually upgrade (and eventually install) Mandriva 2006 Free I downloaded the iso's and did it.
That seemed OK except when I updated 2006 it killed my” drakconf”. I now can't use the Control Center at all. When I load “rpmdrake”, “drakconf” or even “edit-urpm-source” it takes an inordinate amount of time to request my root password and when the PW is entered the loading eventually times-out and the ap stops loading. All other applications load up s-l-o-w-l-y too.
I have tried removing and installing “drakconf” to no result. I could delete the whole partition and all the files again and it will probably work but as soon as I update this problem will recur (I've done it twice now). My root is on one partition and my home on another thus I don't have "problems" freshly installing the OS except setting preferences again.
If this point is covered in earlier forums please direct me there or give me the correct search phrases 'cause I ain't findn' it.
