Yup, you're about to break a boatload of dependancies.

You asked the question though...

i tried to remove chkfontpath-1.9.10-1mdk package, but then it prompted me to remove more packages because of dependencies

such a headache

Yeah, fix the problem by creating a new set of problems.

Uh, no.

A re-install is what is called for, but stick with the Mandrake install, preferably of 10.1 since the ISO's are now out.

well, i have done some research online and it seems this is a common occured problem after upgrading XFree86, and it's occuring to both mandrake 10.0 and 10.1. so far, no effective solution available yet for it. it's caused by some sort of 'You replaced
X but there is still residual MDK X stuff there after upgrading X', according to one user, don't know what that means...

the reason that i'm reluctant to reinstall is because i have so much stuff needs to be reconfigured and recompiled, and it will take too much of time, such a pain in the neck

oh, well...
