Well, probably what happened is since the packages didn't install all the way, they probably overwrote some files but not all. That then probably caused an incompatability with some libraries, and messed up your OO.o menus. I'd try backing up your Xorgconfig/XF86config file and reinstalling X.

Thanks for your answer.

So Ive checked it out. So you mean i have to save this file usr/X11R6/bin/xf86config?

About X Window system, i don't see it installed in the packages of mandrake 10.1, when i use the graphical interface. Maybe its under another name? Or is Xorg... = X Window system?
To reinstall it, should i use a terminal? But then what should i do?

thanks again
