I've just upgraded from FC6 to FC7. I'm not overly Linux savvy so sorry for what appears to be a simple question. My "Add/Remove software" function/program doesn't work, it did for FC6. The administer password box appears, correct password input and then nothing. No error message whatsoever. This is the same when trying to run it when I'm logged in as 'root'.

Any suggestions please.

Upgrading from one major release to another can sometimes cause problems. F7 and its new kernel, etc, changed a lot of things and a fresh install was recommended. I'm sure others will come along and suggest various ways to fix it, but in the end, it might be quicker to install over.

Wow, such a quick response, and you know what, that was in the back of my mind.

Thanks, much appreciated.
