Mandrake alearts


I must get at least two different alerts daily from Mandrake
about packages needing upgrading in the system. Rather than trying to keep up witn them I am wondering if sites like Linuxiso and the like get upto date iso's reflecting the almost constant "fixes" that the programmers missed in the first place.

iso's? why would you want an iso??? you have a distro with say... 1000 packages on it. and every single time a single package gets changed you want to reinstall the entire thing? mandrake cooker is an upto date version of mandrake, jsut get the indivual rpms from their ftp site or fr2.rpmfind.net and install the relevant packages.

Welll it may be that I am not ready for Linux yet Proud, however I also never have gotten the MMC to work with my cable.
To date, it seems the only real good I have gotten from the Mandrake Club is knowing that it helps keep the doors open to support them.

I dont suggest using the Mandrake Control Centre to set up your internet connection, try configuring pppd yourself, or maybe Kppp can help
