Sorry about that Colin . . . ;)Anyway . . you can do 2 things:1). Reinstall and reconfigure proftp in the MCC and hope it will behave better2). Install MDV 2008.1 ( the last version that had KDE3.5 ) . . . . the best MDV version so far.B) Bruno

Colin . . . Colin . . . you are going much much to fast . . it's like the devil is chasing you !If we could do one thing at a time it would be much better !! This way you only end up having a mess.Start with one install, without updates . . and show me 2 things:
$  cat /etc/sysconfig/mdkapplet$  cat /home/kamicota/.MdkOnline/mdkonline

Colin . . . . the issue is that I would have preferred you did one install at a time and waited with updating !I would like to edit a few files before you do any updates or make any changes.After that you can do the updates and we can move on to the next computer for the install.Also, maybe it would be wise to - during the install - count to ten and after that check all settings before you click on OK. ( in other words: slow down ):"> Bruno

Okay here we go Colin . . .first as user, not as root:
$ mkdir .MdkOnline$ touch .MdkOnline/mdkonline$ kwrite .MdkOnline/mdkonline
The last command should open kwrite with an empty page . .  please copy and paste this text:

AUTOSTART=falseDO_NOT_ASK_FOR_DISTRO_UPGRADE=trueDO_NOT_ASK_FOR_RESTRICTED=true
Next let me see:
$ cat /home/kamicota/.MdkOnline/mdkonline
After that we will do the next change.:"> Bruno
