I am using Mandrake too. I wonder which Mandrake version you have installed. And also if you have installed a package named kudzu.I am running 2.2.17. I purchased the "Powerpack Deluxe release 7.2". I configured as a workstation, since I wanted all the goodies, then I have been installing other packages as needed.I have installed Kudzu and ran it after reading what you said. Doesn't help me in my particular problem.At this point, I have concluded that somehow my Gnome installation has become hosed. I am now logging into KDE and everything seems to be working. On startup, Gnome reports that there has been an error in inter process communication. A socket was not found. Check to make sure that dcopserver is actually running (it is).So, from KDE I am having no trouble. Whole system is up and running now; I have squid serving my LAN, Samba is working, IPChains is functioning as a firewall, Internet Junkbuster is working, and I am almost completely happy. I will be completely happy when I get diald running with squid so that users on the LAN can automagically dial up the internet without logging into this computer.Oh yes, one other thing to make me happy. I downloaded Wordperfect for Linux and it won't install. The installer is choking on the fact that I have a directory labeled Linux2.2.17-mdk. The "-mdk" is causing a lot of grief.I feel like I'm coming home; Linux reminds me a lot of my old Amigas. I have learned as much about Linux since last Wednesday night (when I started the installation) as I learned about Windows NT in two years. Sure is nice to be working with an environment that encourages knowledge, rather than that immensely opaque Bill Gates Special.
