O no, no the newb comes out in me!

Ok, so I had Mandrake 10.0. And KDE 3.2.

I was thinking ok let me update to 10.1, then I will update KDE to 3.4.

I went to my console, did a urpmi --auto-select.

Downloaded all the stuff for 10.1. Installed it. Only had a couple of errors but they had to do with like KDE weather and what not.

Anywho, when I restarted, I know see the 10.1 image. Good good.... But when It boots up after splash screen I have no KDE menus. I have xmms and luckily mandrake control panel that I can atl-tab into.

Any suggestions? I can't seem to get KDE up at all.

Oh I forgot, I did a urpmi kdebase before the update to 10.1. I think that is when the problem started.

There should be a menu update command, as far as I remember, in a console do menu-update -v and that should restore your menu.
