Mandrake 9.1 RC3


It looks like there is an RC3:
ftp://mandrake.redbox.cz/Mandrake-iso/i586/

Have fun

What are you on about? Which files?

There wont be a RC3, "This is the last release before Mandrake Linux 9.1 final"

Please dont spam these forums.

Edit: Some RC3 files have just been uploaded... This is not Mandrake's official ftp server if I'm not mistaken...wtf?

Sorry, but there is : ( this was on PCLinux on line )

Mandrake 9.1 RC3 or final?
Linux JLP writes "I'm sure a lot of people wonder: "Where is Mandrake 9.1? Shouldn't it be out now?". Well it seem that we will have to wait a little more as there appears to be Release Candidate 3 getting uploaded to mirrors. For example take a look HERE. Maybe this is the true final and it is just named like that until the ISO images get well spread over server. Only Mandrake people know "

Did you have a look on the link that I posted or not ?
Look again !

I can see it now, at that Czech Republic mirror, and it's on others too...the naming is different to rc2, notice the MandrakeLinux-9.1-rc3-CD1.i586.iso, if it makes any difference...

Jeez... again.. 9.0 went to 3 or 4 Release Candidates, each saying "Final Release Candidate" since number 2.... So this RC3 may or may not be the last RC before the Final .. I just tried Slack 9.0 and wasn't terribly impressed even though graphics & sound worked fine.. With the limited time I have for setting up a system, Mandrake 9.0 has spoiled me by giving me the Enterprise and SMP kernels in my Lilo menu as well as graphics, sound, CDR, network all nice and auto-detected with a TON of apps ready to run.

OS news is reporting that they've had access to the full completed version of 9.1 for a week now (http://www.osnews.com/story.php?news_id=3116). According to one Mandrake FTP mirror the ISO they're calling RC3 was uploaded yesterday so I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that RC3 is the final version.

So if we downloaded the "RC3" yesterday as it was posted, that is actually the final "Bamboo" release, right?

Yep, and you know it's good coz it's been double-posted at Slashdot!

futurist: a very noticable difference would be the new Galaxy theme for KDE and GNOME

OSNews 'review' isnt worth your time.
