New rc3 release?

Recommended Posts

You probably won't need CD3.

 

It's all internationalization stuff.

Thanks for the tip, D - I might get to play tonight then, because I plan to install it on a different computer from the one that's downloading, and I have cd1 and cd2 already. We'll see how the evening goes.

 

Hey, I just noticed on DistroWatch that Mandrake 9.0 is listed as official starting today. :)

You will need CD3 for development programs.

 

I posted a link to the contents in a previous message. Don't ask which one.

That sucks severely...

 

I installed RC3 and was able to compile things just fine with that, and I didn't use CD3.

 

Oh well, if I need it, I'll get it later.

I'm downloading now! Unfortunately at only 80 KB/s but that's okay. I'll just let it go overnight.

Got all three CDs and went ahead with installation. No problems whatsoever, and it looks great! I didn't think I'd like the new icons at first, but they are really pretty cool. It only took 18 minutes to install from "insert disk 1" to the time I started typing this, so that's not bad. Gotta do some tweaking now, but things are looking really good so far. :D

Okay...... You NEED CD3 if you want the kernel source. I don't know why they changed that... But oh well.

Same here and its working nice. A surprise was Opera. I downloaded and installed it and it worked like a charm. No library problems. Gnome is nice. Opened a terminal and it was setup and ready to go in my fav config. Loads very fast too. KDE I haven't checked much. Opened a terminal and tried to set the background to a new color but it wouldn't switch. Took easily twice as long to start too. But I'll play with it more.
