Question Programs dissapear after installing more kde packages

Okay, i just installed mandrake 9.2 and went to install AIM. it gave me an unsatisfied file dependancies error, so i tried installing the development RPMs. (later i figured out that i didnt need to do this, but still, the problem still exists) but after i installed the new packages, only those new packages showed up in the start menu (what would that be called in linux? i used to know but its escaped me at the moment, this is my first time using it in a few years) and all the other programs that had shortcuts and such have dissapeared, including all the configuration ones, and now none of the "home" icons are working, or the "configure my desktop". you click them and nothing happens. i got AIM working but this problem is kind of puzzling and i really dont feel like having to go back and recreate all those shortcuts. anyone know what i may have done wrong? btw - using KDE 3.1 if it matters

There is a menu bug that running the Mandrake updates will fix. You can read this thread for more help.
