commands in mandrake 9


i've just installed mandrake9 to try a different flavour of linux...

when i try hdparm or Xconfigurator as either user or root i get "command not found"

why is this happening?

sorry if its a simple answer

Is it installed, run rpm -q hdparm
If you can't find it on one of your install CDs, you can go here to download

i ran rpm -q hdparm and it reported it as not installed, the same for Xconfigurator.
hdparm installed perfectly, just off to get Xconfigurator.

many thanks
