First, I already have a password. Why do you insist on confusing the issue
by requiring another one?
Second, the powertools never installed properly. Gnome insisted there were
"unresolved dependencies" which would leave the system unstable if I
ignored them. Was it the main disk #2 that was incorrectly labled? When I
tried to install it, there was nothing there not already on the system.
Should there have been files which would otherwise have resolved said
Third, I already explained this to support, but I can't even get an
autoresponse from them anymore.
Fourth, when I reinstalled, setting up KDE as my desktop, the only
improvement was with Sun's StarOffice. No other disks would install. The
autoboot C program on the other disks loaded kpackage, but never pointed
it to the cdrom, and did not permit me to do so. As a result, I only had
an option to uninstall what I already had.
The answer to your first question is that this is not the same system as the
support system. This is used by engineering to fix bugs. This is why you needed
to create an account.
I think I know what is happening, when GnoRPM comes up, you will initially see
the packages which are already installed on the system. To view the packages on
the Powertools CD, click the "Install" button in gnorpm, it should automatically
start reading the CD. Then, you will see a window pop up which lists package
groups, click expand tree, and then choose your filter up top. If you have
problems with gnorpm, please submit a bug report for gnorpm so that it goes to
In addition to gnorpm, if you arehaving problems with kpackage please submit a
bug report for kpackage. Both Kpackage and gnorpm are part of the regular
distribution, not Powertools.
I am closing this because it isn't a big with Powertools.
