Mandriva 2011 first software update broke system
I had the current version of Mint on the machine before trying to install Mandriva 2011. Between the first and second attempts on Mandriva to try to make sure that there were no problems with the platform, I ran the Seagate bootable disk utility to check the HD and ran a version of ex-memex to exercise system RAM. Everything passed.
The desktop is beautiful. I would like to get this system running but am at a loss on what to do next. There do not seem to be many system tools available on the iso disk (or maybe I am looking in the wrong place). There was one package that had dependency problems using the installer (although it was auto selected for updating) and I elected not to continue.
Its a bit disappointing when updating from the GUI using the package manager breaks the system this badly. I did a forum search for this problem and was not able to find anything similar. As an aside I have been running the nuxes for many years,Unix, BSD and most recently Ubuntu and Suse. The last time I ran Madrake I had to write the /dev files for an unsupported monitor but thats been a long time ago.
Any help would be deeply appreciated.
Thanks for the kind interest and reading this
