I think the XF86Config is not used - might be wrong. The font thing ought to be fixable: In text mode, i.e. without X, uninstall freetype2 and then install it again with urpmi. When you uninstall it, use rpm --nodeps (if you use urpmi, that will uninstall just about anything that is X in any way dependent on X).

if i do a "rpm -qa |grep -i freetype2" or even a "rpm -qa |grep -i type2" I get NOTHING back. However, if I do a "urpmi freetyp2" I get a "everything is already installed" msg...

Regarding the display manager, isn't there a way to go back to mandrake display manager and get rid of the DCOP message instead of using the crappy looking xfree default one? Not only does it look very bad but it has no functionality such as rebooting or turning off computer or nothing...

how about urpmi --allow-force freetype2
Maybe the package name isn't freetype2 and that's why it won't show up when you do rpm -q freetype2. If nothing else, you can find on which CD the rpm is and then manually install it with the rpm command (I'm pretty confident that it's got to b e on CD1).

I don't understand why mdk login manager would make trouble. If anything, that's the one that should work. Do you have gdm (gnome version) or kdm (kde version) available?

I noticed that there is no .DCOPserver on my home directory, so that's why I'm getting this message:
"Could not read network connection list.
/home/ttilt/.DCOPserver-(my host...)

Verify that the program "dcopserver" is running."

But how can I either put that file there or stop it from been looked for?

hahah regarding the fonts problem it's been fixed... I simply didn't have the XFree86-75dpi-fonts installed... Once i installed it it fixed the problem.

So now only problem that remains is the DCOP thing...!!

The .DCOPserver thing is created when KDE starts up. asafik, it's not something you can create manually. since you don't seem to have that problem using the X login manager, it must be a problem with mdk-kdm; somehow, it's failing to start dcopserver. The only thing I can think of is to use kdm or gdm which should both be installed as well (at least, they must be provided with the CDs).
