KDE Wallet

I'm running Mandrake 10 and KDE 3

Okay, heres whats up. I decided I would start using KDE Wallet from now on but somehow when I set up the primary password for KDE Wallet I must have entered it incorrectly. How can I clear KDE Wallet and start over? I don't want to change the password since I figure this would be impossible anyway but I would like to somehow reinstall KWALLET so I can use it in the future.
I tried running the KWALLET manager which I installed from disk 3 but when I try to run the configuration tool I see the message "Starting KDE Wallet" in the panel but after about 30 seconds it just disappears and the program never starts.

Use the easy urpmi configurator at

To set up updated download mirrors.
This is trial & error at the mo, as some servers are playing up.
I recommend the mirrors from France as working.
So far I only set up plf and updates. You can set up the others after this.
Once you have followed the instructions on the site, the Install packages front-end for Mandrake will use both your CDs and the mirror sites for packages. Therefore, if you try and install a package that is the same on both your CDs and the mirror sites, you will be able to use your CDs still and not worry about the download time.

In the install packages section of the mandrake Control Centre type "wallet" for a search. There should be a listing for an updated kdewalletmanager. Select this updated one from the net. The download should not take more that a few minutes on dialup.

If you have already installed kdewalletmanager, try the Update tool to see if the update is there instead.

Once you've installed the new package type "kwalletmanager &" in a terminal Window.
The KDE System Tray should now include a folder.
Your Wallet Manager should now be running. Use this system Tray Icon to administer your wallet.

Hope this helps.
