Mandriva Control Center will not start [solved]

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

Suddenly my Mandriva Control Center will not start.

Upon launch I get the splash screen that says:

 

Mandriva Linux

Mandriva Linux Control Center

Loading ... Please wait

 

But after that nothing ever happens.

Otherwise computer seems to be working normally.

I am running KDE One 2010.2 32 bit.

 

Recommendations?

 

Thanks

No clue what would be causing this, but one way to sometimes find out more is to start programs from the command-line. Start, login and open a terminal and then start control center (type drakconf). Good chance you will get some more output that at least puts you on the right track.

I was able to start it from the command line. I don't know whether or not this is normal but here are the results:

 

[root@localhost jose]# drakconf

[root@localhost jose]# "/usr/sbin/drakbackup" is not executable [backups] at /usr/sbin/drakconf.real line 821.

"/usr/sbin/drakvirt" is not executable [Virtualization] at /usr/sbin/drakconf.real line 821.

"/usr/sbin/msecgui" is not executable [security Level] at /usr/sbin/drakconf.real line 821.

"/usr/sbin/tomoyo-gui" is not executable [Tomoyo Policy] at /usr/sbin/drakconf.real line 821.

The problem seems to have been resolved.

 

I just completed a very busy few months at work and had been using my work laptop exclusively.

Upon returning the work this issue with my PC I found there were 472 updates for the system.

After all the updates were installed the MCC is working normally.

 

Thanks for all the help.
