Installing old_rpmdrake?

Recommended Posts

hello,

I've been experiencing problem w/new rpmdrake package causing my laptop to freeze. I reinstalled old old_rpmdrake package but it is not used when using MCC. I tried removing the updated rpmdrake but urpmi wants to remove old_rpmdrake also. Any suggestions on howto make old_rpmdrake open by default in MCC?

Has there been anything about the new rpmdrake causing troubles. I looked in the latest errata but saw nothing.thanx.....

thanx but that's not exactly what i am experiencing. I have no trouble adding repo's or accessing and updating. It's that my install has become very unstable since i updated to new rpmdrake v3.3. i will be in MCC doing a systemupdate or looking for packages and a good 50% of the time while i'm in there my cursor just disappears and keyboard totally locks up. cant ctl-alt-f1 or anything. have to do a hard reset which i hate doing to bring system back up. I want revert back old_rpmdrake to see if problem persists. I've looked in system logs but see nothing that stands out. Is there any logs for rpm i could look at. As for getting old_rpm to work w/MCC i'm thinking of renaming all old_rpm binaries in /usr/bin to the new rpmdrake binary names. Do u think this will force MCC to bring up old_rpmdrake....

Why do you need it to invoke from MCC?

 

Either:

 

1. Use the cmd line and enter (as root) "old_rpmdrake" or

2. create a shortcut in your menu or desktop that runs the command "kdesu old_rpmdrake"

to be honest i'm having so many stability problems that I just want to always run old_rpmdrake. And it simplifies maintenance. I know if I want to do something/anything I can do it from MCC.And to me the less clutter on the desktop the better...
