Mandrake 9.0 Control Center problem


I've got the following problem with the Mandrake 9.0 Control Center: it just won't load... When I try to start it, it says "loading...please wait", then after about 10 seconds it stops, without giving any messages. Has anyone else ever exeperienced this problem and is there anything to do about it? (I tried it boot as root and as default user, nothing helps...).

Thanks in advance,

I tried running "drakconf" from a terminal, and I get the following error message:

Sat Feb 8 12:19:42 2003 Gtk-WARNING **: invalid cast from (NULL) pointer to `GtkObject' at /usr/sbin/drakconf line 857.
Can't call method "set_active" on an undefined value at /usr/sbin/drakconf line 423.

Maybe this error message helps you guys...
