drakconf didnot start - mandrake 10.1


hi all
I recently installed perl to my laptop, I try to use drakconf for installation of other softwares, I could not able to start drakconf. I got following error message,

I am guessing I installed perl in wrong path?


Can't locate MDK/Common.pm in @INC (@INC contains: /usr/lib/libDrakX /usr/local/lib/perl5/5.00504/i686-linux /usr/local/lib/perl5/5.00504 /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.005/i686-linux /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.005 .) at /usr/lib/libDrakX/common.pm line 3.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /usr/lib/libDrakX/common.pm line 3.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /usr/sbin/drakconf line 28



Is it anyone knows how to fix it, without installing the whole system. I saw some of the forum, but nver seen any clear answer for this. Even who fixed this , they didn't summarize enough to fix this problem.


any one out there to help me in this regard

thanks
venk

How did you install perl? Most of Mandrivas tools are built using gtk and perl so if you tinker with perl you can end up breaking all your Mandriva tools.

I did downloaded perl5_005.tar.gz and followed the instructions, I compiled it from scratch as default.

DO you think I did something wrong in installation? path etc

KDE works fine after the installation and other perl scripts too.

thanks any help will be appreciated

You should probably reinstall Mandrivas perl package. Mandriva makes specific perl modules which work with their tools so if you have broken these by installing your own version of perl, then Mandrivas tools won't work. Is it not possible to install your own version of perl without overwriting the old one i.e. in a different prefix.

Thanks, I am using mandrake 10.1, How can I install, I had a problem in installing from rpm? How can I do that without messing my system, of course it has already messed ? but doesn't want to do more mess.

Is it mandriva and mandrake 10.1 are compatable? if so, how can uninstall the previous perl and resintall new one, I really appreciate the step wise suggestion that can lead me to success

where I can get the mandriva specific perl modules? how can I install that.

thanks

Go to this site and download perl. To install the rpm do
Code:
#rpm -Uvh --nodpeps perl*.rpm
Make sure you have uninstalled your own version of perl first.

thanks, I need to explain little more, I tried two weeks before to update the perl and downloaed perl5.8.7 at that time everything is fine and It asked me to delete some libraries , I said yes so finally it put me in mess, it deleted some perl.so lib connection.

I tried per.5.8.7.rpm , and it installed but my KDE didnot work, so finally I downloaded perl source and compiled it, KDE is fine and then I could not able to used mandrake utilities, DRAKCONF etc.,

Not sure which perl I needed to download in the list of programs, I am new to linux.

do you want me download all the perl rpms, like base, dlevel, etc

how can uninstall the perl?

thanks , kind of lot of questions, but want to make sure before I lose more in my system

It seems like you system is really messed up. Why not take this time to upgrade to something newer like Mandriva 2006?

Its really difficult to do that because rpm will also remove other packages that depend on perl. What I suggest you do is make sure you have a Mandriva updates repo setup. Uninstall drakconf using urpme drakconf. After that try to reinstall drakconf using urpmi and maybe the missing dependencies will be installed as well.

I've had a similar issue and I've uninstalled drakconf using 'urpme drakconf'. When I try to install again, it pulls it off the cd, but I get an error with the signature: '/var/cache/urpmi/rpms/drakconf-icons-10.2-5mdk.ppc.rpm: Invalid signature ((SHA1) DSA sha1 md5 (GPG) (MISSING KEY) GPG#26752624 NOT OK)'.

I'm running 2005 LE for PPC, and I was wondering if there's another source I can get this damn thing from. It's really frustrating, and I just want to get my MCC working.

Just go to /var/cache/urpmi/rpms and install the drakconf rpm that will be stored in there manually using the rpm command.

There is no drakconf file listed in the directory, and I get this error:
Code:
[root@stevensmac rpms]# rpm -i drakconf
error: open of drakconf failed: No such file or directory
Is there anywhere else I could get the file? Apparently the one I have on my disc isn't working, or the signature is invalid.

If it helps, all that's in the direcotry is a drakconf-icons RPM. I don't even see one that's just called drakconf.

Sorry my post above was not entirely correct. Its the drakconf-icons that you need to install because thats the one thats giving you problems.
