Mandriva 2007 download version.
I was having trouble getting a printer on a XP box working with my Mandriva box. It apeared that I had corruped the Cups server so I thought I would just uninstall it and then reinstall it using the drakconf.
Bad move . I now am missing system files .
The box boots to some odd graphical interface (icewm maybe) with very limitited functionaly. I can log on as root and a user but little else. Drakconf looks like it is missing, I was able to use urpmi but nothing would install as all the depends were missing.
The network is down allso.
I can just reinstall but there must be some other way around this.
