MMC dissappeared after using Package Updater

I installed Mandrake 10.0 just before it became official.

I used package update, checked all security updates and installed.

As usual, the updater freezed after installation seemed to be finished, and I had to kill it.

Afterwards, several menu choices of mine has dissapeared, including MMC (Configure your computer), all packaging tools etc. First, they were just dead links on the menus, now the menu choices are gone too.

I can not start MMC, and configure my computer.

I can not execute drakconf from root console (command not found).

In my home/user/.kde/share/applnk-mdk/ there is no Configure folder, howere there is a Configuration folder under System

In usr/bin/ there is no drakconf, nore in usr/sbin.

When trying urpmi rpmdrake or urpmi drakconf I get
Some package requested cannot be installed:
drakconf-10-0.7mdk.i586 (due to missing drakxtools-10-34.2.100mdk.i586)
drakxtools-10-34.2.100mdk.i586 (due to unsatisfied perl-Glib[>= 1.021-3mdk]) (Y/n)

When trying urpmi rpmdrake I get
Some package requested cannot be installed:
drakxtools-10-34.2.100mdk.i586 (due to unsatisfied perl-Glib[>= 1.021-3mdk])
rpmdrake-2.1.3-2.2.100mdk.i586 (due to missing drakxtools-10-34.2.100mdk.i586)

And finally, when trying urpmi drakxtools I get
[root@zark /]# urpmi drakxtools
Some package requested cannot be installed:
drakxtools-10-34.2.100mdk.i586 (due to unsatisfied perl-Glib[>= 1.021-3mdk])

So, my problems is many but if I could get teh perl-Glib to be "satisfied" I guess I could work my way out of it...

What is te unsatisfied perl-Glib, and how do I fix it?

Is there a webpage from where I can do the package updating?

All answers appreciated.

install the perl-glib first via urpmi. it's on one of the mdk install cd's. perl-glib is a module for accessing perl-GTK(2) libraries & is neccesary for other apps to work. you may start running into dependency hell, but hopefully with the perl installed first, you can get the other things installed. since you say you had to kill the updater, there's a possibilty that it wasn't finished & you may be a bit screwed depending on what it was doing when you killed it. if you find that you're running into too many dependency issues with urpmi, your best bet might be to boot off the install CD & choose the "upgrade" option. that will reinstall any packages that are missing or that might be borked.
