rpm bug?

I installed Mandrake 9.2 last night and it all started pretty smoothly. It detected all of my hardware and everything seems to come up ok.

Then I used RPM to install a few additional packages that I was missing.

After installing this additional software, most of the software that was originally on there disappeared. I lost Konquerer and the configuration utility and most of the other stuff as well.

I ended up completely redoing the install, but this time I used the package select option to make sure I got everything on there from the start so that I didn't need to use RPM.

Is this a bug or did I do something wrong?

This will solve your problem. It's Mandrake itself, it would seem, rather than rpms.
