Well, I have not tested Adabas yet, but yes it looks like it runs just fine in this RC.

However, am trying to figure out what the HECK happened to my printer and scanner, both USB(printer is a Stylus C80, scanner a 1650 Photo of the Epson Perfection type). After rebooting after install, the whole /dev/usb/ file tree took a walk(empty dir that was NOT empty before rebooting the first time after a scratch install on a virgin HD) and usbview says the hubs are not installed, and the MCC hardware viewer says something cannot find modules called "usb-hci" which appears to be a typo for "usb-uhci" to run the two USB hubs it found (this is not quite right, there are literally THREE of those, plus an IEEE1394 bus(this last, it DID find the module for, though I own nothing for that bus yet)). Those WORKED with 8.2 through 9.0 RC2-- oh, well, some coding patches will be forthcoming I guess. (Mandy 9.0 rc3 decided to run these this way *after a reboot*, strange....)

I am not yet into compiling kernels to fix config script problems, so looks like the third HD on my system gets partly occupied by a Mandrake 8.2 install later today (the devices work in that "other" operating system still-- Win98). I am rebuilding a system software set on bigger and faster HDs (one each, 40, 60, and 80 GB, and will bench the last once I have enough on it for valid results-- it should scream as it is a Western Digital Special Edition 800JB that got installed (by me) on Saturday).

John.

I installed mandrake 9 rc2 on my IBM T20 laptop and it runs great. I use a Cisco Aironet 340 wireless set to DHCP and that runs no problems. Only problem I have is printing to my print server (smc 7004wbr). The only distro that will print to it, is Libranet, using Redhats printool...not even Redhat will print to it. I also installed it on my wife's laptop (Dell Inspiron 8000) and that was smooth sailing:-)!

I'm running Mandrake 9.0 on my desktop. It's very nice. I like Gnome 2.0. I've only been using Linux for a couple of months. I started with Mandrake 8.2 and RedHat 7.3. I don't plan on going back to Microsoft Windows. I wish that the DVD/Media player was better for Linux. This is the only thing that crashes my system. It's not set up to run DVD's out of the box (Xine). i also don't care for the dialog boxes in Gnome 2.0. I can't tell whether I've selected a menu item or unselected it. Give me a box with a checkmark inside it any day. It is far more intuitive. I also think that Mandrake should add 'OK" buttons to their Mandrake Control Center.

I'm happy with everything else. I was surprised by the nice desktops. The Mandrake boot screen and install is the most user friendly and graphically beautiful designs I have ever seen in any operating system. The Gnome 2.0 desktop is competitive with any high quality desktop, it is better than WinXP in many ways. I believe it is far more configurable and I look forward to installing new themes.

My system is very fast and I'm only running it on a 1Gz processor (AMD). The system is stable. What more can I say.

I have installed Mandrake 9 on a Toshiba 1405-S151 laptop that has a Trident CyberAladdin-T video card and Acer Sound card. Every thing works fine. I am also running a Linksys WPC11 v2 wireless ethernet card.

I had to make a couple of tweaks to get the wireless card to work and to stop the keyboard from randomly double typing characters while running X.

So far it appears to be doing a very good job detecting MOST devices now.

Good to hear.

Cool

I just switched to Mandrake 9.0 from Debian because I couldn't handle all of the Debian Testing updates on dialup and I wanted all the latest eye-candy.

If you are looking for an easy to use/install DVD player for Mandrake 9.0, you could do a lot worse than Ogle. It installed flawlessly on my system, and I was watching Willy Wonka within seconds.

I apologize for bumping up an old thread. I had searched Google for an answer but to no avail.

I am pretty much running the same things as this guy, except I am using FreeBSD. When using X, my same Toshiba model keyboard double types at random instances. I played with the xorg.conf file to no avail. It's not an AutoRepeat problem because I can set it to insanely high values, it'll still repeat. The problem happens more when I'm typing fast. Under the same exact conditions, my desktop works fine. I think it's an improper driver call. Are there any suggestions to fix this? And NO it's not a hardware problem as my keyboard works perfectly on the regular terminal.
