Reinstall xwindow


Hi
Bye mistake I manage to remove one of the graphic package (libxfree86...) when I was installing new drives.
So now the Xwindow won't start is there an easy whey to reinstall Xwindow or mandrake.

You can merely

rpm -Uvh --force containing.rpm.file.rpm

It sounds like you are running Mandrake 10.0 as 10.1 went to X.org.

My guess:

as root
Code:
urpmi libxfree86
Insert CD if necessary.
