Mandrake 9.1

You know, I got that only sometimes when I upgraded to 3.1 using URPMI in Mandrake 9.0

But then 10 mins later, it was all there...off and on...

Now I've installed 9.1 and all is good.

Have you tried going into Menudrake? (In the mandrake control center) Check what's in there ...

IIRC, mandrake uses a menu system similar to Debian's. Perhaps it's not installed/updated?

its the dumbest thing ever. It doesnt actually generate the menu at all until i manually ran menudrake...


that's a pretty serious bug (unless its just for me heh) for the newbies out there.

Yeah, it's just you. I did a fresh install of 9.1 and I haven't had to do ANYTHING yet, unlike 9.0 where a few things weren't configured quite right out of the box.
