I lost a LOT more than just the control center. But I have, at least, similar problems every time an update is released that has a dependency on redhat-menus. So this is how my update went: 1 - Before the update: My K-menu looked just like normal. 2 - During & after the update: After redhat-menus was reinstalled (I remove it with the --nodeps flag every time it gets reinstalled) my K-menu became afflicted in the same way that people are complaining about. 3 - After running "rpm -e --nodeps redhat-menus" my K-menu went back to normal (as it always does when I remove "redhat-menus") My "problem" is that I don't run Fedora's KDE. I compile KDE from KDE's Branch 3.5 SVN tree. So when "redhat-menus" is installed, my K-menu is hosed. Uninstall it, all is well. But the problem that everyone else seems to be having is, I think, different than mine, because no one seems to have mentioned that they compile KDE from source. (Even though I compile KDE from source, I DO NOT compile it for the same location that Fedora installs it's KDE rpm's in :)) Steven P. Ulrick P.S.: Just wondering: should I file a bug report against redhat-menus? Should redhat-menus continually overwrite my real K-menu, considering that redhat-menus is installed in /usr, and my KDE is installed in /usr/local/kde-svn-fc5? My user account has the appropriate lines in .bash_profile so that when I log into KDE, I get the version compiled from KDE's SVN tree.
