Unhappy Mandrake Control Center Is Missing

hi, i have a really big problem now. i just don't have mandrake control center. in other forum i heard that it was because i was making something with gtk, and i didn't (btw. i use kde). i have searched on net, and more people have the same problem. i don't have any links to mcc in /home/alzen/.kde/...; i have updated my menu in menudrake but with no effect. i just don't have mcc in system, no mcc file in /bin and /usr/bin. today without any ideas i reinstalled my mdk 10, i mean that i have upgraded 10.0 to 10.0, no effect. please tell me what to do, i don't want to delete system and install everything again cuz i have system configured in my way and i am happy with it, only missing mcc. hope someone will know what to do.

Open a terminal and try (as root):
urpmi mcc

The mandrake control centre isn't called that in your files.
You'll need to look for drakconf in your /usr/sbin directory.
If you added a link to your menu and told it to point to mcc I doubt it'd start.
Open a console. su to root and then type: mcc see if it opens then.

the correct name for MCC is drakconf, so in terminal as root do urpmi drakconf.
