A question to the RC testers

Well, it's a rather weird question, but I was wondering if there were any fixes inserted into rpmdrake or so. Thing is, 2 days ago my system crash due to a failure in installing some packages. The package needed to remove some packages and after removing them and trying to install the new ones a conflict was found, and that screwed up my X server. I don't know if it was because of rpmdrake, but I guess it was because those packages came with the Mandrake ISOs, so now I'm a bit scared to use the wizard.

Any changes made into it in the last RC?

Don't know what version you are running now, but there were some rpmdrake problems in the earlier betas, from mandrake changelog:

Corrections from beta1 include:

- Rpmdrake now functional
- Upgrade from former versions now fully handled
- New windows are now conveniently centered

Urpmi and rpmdrake still complain about missing key. This issue should be fixed in the next beta.
