When using the live CD all package mangers worked fine. including the add/remove "software manager".
But now that its installed, synaptic still works fine but when i run the "software manager" i get this error:
"The data used by mintInstall is corrupted or out of date. Click on refresh to fix the problem : no element found: line 1, column 0"
Hitting refresh does nothing except for make the little error window come back, no matter how long you wait.
So i tried using synaptic to completely remove "mintinstall" and its supporting packages, then reinstalled said packages. But no luck, same thing.
Doing a search only gave me results about translations.
I'm sure a reinstall of Mint6 would fix it, but i'd like to learn about this problem and how to fix it.
