An older kernel without new features?
After one more week of reading, no replies to my earlier post.
I'm today using 2.4 Mandrake kernel to boot. 2.6 kernel and my Mandrake 10.1 Discovery distribution seem to have an unexpected feature that causes that the drive Toshiba XM-5302TA is not detected.
What makes me unhappy is that the 2.4 kernel boot images on my 10.1 Mandrake Discovery distribution are corrupted. (CRC error - I suppose that the error message means error in Continuous Redundancy Check).
I however found the .img as file from Sunet mirror and the floppy is ok this time. Now the CD-ROM is there as it should. I presume that I someday can switch to some later, coming version, where the unexpected feature is not present any more.
I however have found a new problem Mandrake 10.1 Discovery does not find the mouse on my system. The mouse is a three button old Logitech and it is connected to serial port (COM 1). The Red Hat 5.2 installation package finds the mouse, somehow even if the AMI BIOS is not aware of the existence of the mouse.
Somebody who has a hint where to start reading?
Yours very truly,
