upgraded to LE 2005... strange results


I just upgraded from 10.1 community to LE 2005 tonight. Had major problems but eventually got LE2k5 installed; i kept existing partitions and formatted all but /home. However, now my previous setting from 10.1 are existing within LE2k5 but not working. i.e I cannot access harddrake or "Configure your system" like i could in 10.1. In fact I cannot even figure out where to go to get a gui for configuring my system and settings in LE 2k5. Plus the menu entries duplicated and tripled themselves in some cases so I have 3 options for HOME in my KDE menu plus others. Lastly, my screen flashes black very frequently but for a short period of time. Any thoughts? Thanks a lot

Mandrake ...oops I mean Mandriva, does mess with your config in your homedir (the ones that begin with a dot). Maybe you could make a backup directory and move everything that starts of with a dot in there. Then relogon and check it out from there. You could probably copy some stuff back into $HOME and see what works and what doesn't. This should certainly resolve the problem with your kmenu

Ya, like hesaid, but you'll prolly want to rename ~/.kde to ~/.kde_old, relogin... then do as he said....

elluva: Mandriva has to be the worst name ever. My fingers don't even like typing it!

great, thanks for the info, i'll give that a try. But how do I configure Mandriva, not kde that's easy, but what is the command for the mandriva configuration gui? ( I ask because there is no option in my menu to configure the computer) thx
