Mandrake Control Center missing server config / wizard


I've seen screenshots on the web of the mandrake control center (9.2, 10.0, 10.1) that has an icon for something like a mandrake wizard or server settings configuration tool. This would launch a window where server settings could be configured. Any ideas on why it's not showing up in my mandrake control center? Should I install a specific package for this? Then, Is there a way to see the already installed packages using rpmDrake? Thank you for the help!

This is to answer the 2nd part of your question about a way to see all installed packages:

lauch rpmdrake-remove rather than rpmdrake
Then browse the packages. Removable packages means they are installed


open a shell as root and type:
rpmquery -a|more

This will display the installed packages

Hope this help

you can install the server wizards from the Mandrake Control Center (MCC), by going to 'software', ' install' , and searching for the name 'wizard' select the package and install. Then, restart the MCC to see the new menu entry.
