OK, for almost a month now, I've had Mandrake 9.2 installed and working flawlessly (almost) with the exception of being able to connect to the internet. That problem was today finally resolved (refer to this thread
You can imagine how pleased I was and so was eager to download the updates released so my system would be 100% up to date. I went through the automatic update procedure and downloaded every package that came up on the list successfully. It was after doing this that things have gone sour
For some reason, I can't access any programs. I click on the KDE 'Start' button and what was once a menu listing lots of applications, games, OpenOffice, Konsole, Konqueror etc etc. is now a list of virtually nothing!!
Even the CDROM and Floppy icons cannot access their respective drives when clicked on.
And the 'Welcome' screen icons don't react when clicked on - I tried the 'Configure your computer icon' (the one with the red spanner) and an error came up.
What have I done wrong? Will I have to start fresh by wiping the partition clean and re-installing Mandrake??!! HHHEEEELLLLPPPP!!
