hopefully some can shoot me some guidance .
I have a toshiba laptop 1.6 1900-000fs with a pcmcia 4 port 2.0 usb card/24 bit soundblaster/external drive/external opticalmouse/and a 7 port 1.1 usb hub/canon scanner/lexmark printer. with mandrake 10 powerpack [all updates installed]and it works good but as soon as i put a lot of periphrals on it it starts to lock up during startup. i have downloaded the 10.1 download edition and that release does not have that problem but when update is complete and you install recommended updates ,the updates cause problems with previously installed programs such as kdevelop.i have found that if i install 10 powerpack [and updates]and just use the first disk of 10.1 to upgrade then there is no problems and works mint but the update program displays the updates that trash the other programs .is there a way to modify the update program so it does not display updates that are not needed?or would someone maybe tell how to resolve the startup issue in version 10 so i dont have to do upgrade?
i am a newbie !
any help greatly appreciated
