What set you off, it appeared to me, was that my menu structure, which is
similar to the one in Fedora 7, differed from your Fedora Core 6 menu
structure. The Fedora people are forever rearranging the menus. Other
distributions do that also. And I called the program by the wrong name.
Kinda' used what you had been using. My fault there.  ;-)

What I was really trying to do was to get you to run the mixer from the
CLI. That way you get a better idea of what is going on. It is very
difficult to try to help someone when you can not 'see' what they are
doing or 'see' what is happening. Even more so when 'I' can't make my
system fail like what is being described.

You said you fixed your problem but the problem with the way that you
fixed what was not working was the changing of so many packages at the
same time. Now you will never know which one package, or maybe more, was

BTW - You do know that you, yourself, can change your menus? Move things
around. Change names.
