Eh, it's been available for about that time, just not in full ISO form.

To obtain it you need to download the boot.iso file, and burn it to disk.

Then use this to perform an over the internet/network install.

That's not true.

You only need the boot.iso and download from the first machine.

Then use it to grab the files from the repository.

Use the same boot.iso file to install the already downloaded RPM's from the first machine you have set up.

It's actually faster this way than a CD based install.

And to answer your question, the ISO is available to Club Members.

He said "when it will be publically available". The public version hasn't been released yet.

"Official" has been up for some time now, just not in ISO format.

Hi Opjose

I have run a boot.iso CD, which recognises my RealtekIRTL-8139 network card which is connected to my router.

Can you offer guidance on what I need to do next. I assume I choose the FTP and DHCP options, but don't know what I need to enter into the address spaces.

If your router is set up to dole out address via DHCP, just select that.

You should get a message that the network is being brought up and it should continue if it can.

If it fails you will have to manually enter an IP address, netmask and gateway address for your subnet.

Thanks for that, Opjose

My router is set up with my ISP username and password, but does not appear to connect.

How do I know or where do I find the IP address, netmask and gateway address?

The router address is 192.168.1.254

Eh, your router connects to your ISP.

Unless it utilizes something like PPOE, there is no username and password required (usually).

If your router's LOCAL Ip address is 192.168.1.254

Then your workstation can use any address from 192.168.1.2 thru 192.168.1.253

Your netmask will be 255.255.255.0 and your gateway will be 192.168.0.254

Thank you again opjose. There are time when my ignorance is painful, and this is one of them.

Under normal conditions, Mandrake recognises my network card and connects to my router (192.168.1.254) which connects to my ISP using the pre-configured address in the router.

When the boot CD runs, it recognises my network card, I then have the choices: NFS server, FTP server, HTTP server, CDROM, Hard disk. If I choose NFS or FTP, I then have the options: Static, HDCP, ADSL.

HDCP asks for a Host name and Domain name. I don't know the answers to these inspite of the suggested "mybox" and "mybox.xxxx.com".

Static asks for addresses, I tried:
IP of this machine: 192.168.1.254
IP of DNS: 192.168.1.253
IP of Gateway: 192.168.0.254
Netmask: 255.255.255.0

The response was: "Could not configure network". Looking at the log, it stated that the network was already running.

To answer specifically about when the 10.1 Official Download ISO's should be available. They are supposed to be available near the end of November, but it may very well end up being in the first part of December too. However, there are some ftp's that have it up for offering already - Mandrake just hasn't officiall realeased the ISO's to the public yet.

You can choose FTP or HTTP depending upon which remote repository you will connect to.

Do not use DHCP (it's DHCP not HDCP), instead choose static IP.

If you are ABSOLUTELY SURE that your router is at 192.168.1.254 then you are telling your Linux box to BE the router.... this doesn't work.

Most routers are actually configured with the FIRST available IP address, in this case it's usually 192.168.1.1. Please verify what the router's IP address is.

Then choose STATIC IP and select

IP of this machine: 192.168.1.12
IP of DNS: 192.168.1.254 (IS this the router?)
IP of Gateway: 192.168.1.254 (IS this the router?)
Netmask: 255.255.255.0

An ignorant's question

I'm new to this forum so hello to everyone!

I'm new to linux although it's been a while that I'm trying to understand some basic things, mostly trying distributions... Now I've bought from a website the official 10.1 distribution and it is a 4 cd set (I guess it should be the basic version of mandrake 10.1 official). The powerpack consists of 6 cds. If I download the 5th and 6th cd image will I be able to use it with the CDs I've bought or do the sets change between basic, powerpack, powerpack+ ? In other words are the first 4 cds identical in the powerpack and basic distribution?

Have a nice day everyone!
