Mandrake 10 Community


I recently installed Mandrake 10 Community successfully.

One of the first things I noticed is that in the Boot Loader there are several entries. One of these entries was linux-enterprise. What is the difference between the entries linux and linux-enterprise?

Another thing I noted is that is says is has read/write NTFS support. My experience is that write support for NTFS can cause severe drama's. Is something that I should disable?

Thanks.

linux and linux enterprise are different kernels

if you're using linux at home I'd use linux and not enterprise

write support for NTFS is only (potentially) dangerous if you use it to write to an NTFS partition

how does 10 run ?

I use 9.1 and am VERY happy I didnt bother with 9.2 myself but set it up on some other clients computers it seems a little buggy nothing really serious though.

Like the K menu disappearing after instaling a pakage .
But this is solved easily

So How is 10
?

Phil

10 is lovely

installed perfectly and flawlessly for me
(though some have had nightmares)

faster, more features, more eye candy
doesn't crash on logout like 9.2 did (for me anyway)

all round inprovement on 9.2

am very impressed

Yes, 10 is very good.... or should I say 10 is just as good as 9.1 but it ships KDE 3.2 which is years light ahead KDE3.1 ????

Linux enterprise probably is a kernel for computers with more than 4 CPU's and >4GB RAM.

I would suggest doing a clean install, but you can keep your home backed up if you want.

I'm enjoying it very well. I think I might settle on it as my main distro. I havent had any problems so far like i did with the 9.x series. I think it's the most up 2 date linux as far as packages go also.

Hi There

Glad you are happy with it it seems great I saw that it is now for sale.

A freind recommended the new debian distri says its the best
He is a super user so I am a bit doubtful..

and its so good to be free from windows now

I still have some little problems like with getting my scanner to work

I just installed mandrake 10 community. Everything went okay except i didn't get the chance to create a boot disk. How do i do that during the installation process. I use the windows bootloader (because of some problems with my computer make) so i have to first boot into mandrake to copy some file into windows.

As it stand I get a bunch of 9999 99999 99999..... on my screen. I know how to fix that but I need a boot disk.
