I'm not a tester: mainly no time :(, not enough disk space :(

That beeing said, may I sugest you _upgrade_ to 9.2rc1 do _not_ install it !

Upgrade really need to work properly and it is difficult to implement.

I would be not surprised if Mandrake will enjoy your report on that matter.

Now see.. this is what I miss when I don't have broadband.. grmbl grmbl.. I used to test RC version of mandrake since download wise it's doable with dsl, but now in a country without broadband.. I am stuck with 9.1.


Hoping 9.2 final is as bug free as possible so to prevent excess dialup usage.

Upgrade in Mandrake ALWAYS is a problem. You almost invariably want to do a re-install, leaving your /home partition intact... rather than doing an upgrade. Mandrake's team needs a lot of work in this area.


I couldn't wait for 9.2 so I went with SuSE 8.2 Professional, myself. Distribution channels for Mandrake continue to be an issue. I wasn't willing to do and wait for a mail order, and I don't have access to broadband for personal use (not enough to download several CDs worth of data, anyway).

Just out of curiosity, How do you like SuSE 8.2 compared to say your last Mandrake installation?

First mtweidman, my sympathies. I went to school in Blackburn.

No wonder the stones found it necassary to fill their arms with a thousand holes to drown out the misery.


Pop trivia: quick off topic, that what the beatles song immortalises.


Anyway back on topic...

I was dismayed yesterday to check out what is arguably Europe's biggest computer bazar (don't argue against me thisd is what I was told by the manufactuerers that display there).


They are still selling Mandrake 8.2. And 9.0 and 9.1.

Whats a first time noobie meant to think.

This is FRANCE...home of Mandrake and they can't replace the old stock....

Something is seriously wrong with there marketing ...
