Question Acquiring Mandrake 10


Hey all,

I was wondering, how do I get a copy of Mandrake 10 CE. I searched online and says that you have to pay for a copy but I thought with it being Linux, that it is Open Source and is free. If it is free, could anyone point me to a website of FTP site I can download it from.

Thanks,
DaveThePuzzled

Thank you, vectordrake

I will go there to download Mandrake 10 CE when I can, which will be soon. Now all I need a some software that will burn the ISO Images onto CD's. I am thinking about Nero but I am not sure if it does that.

Take care,
DaveThePuzzled

It will. Be sure to choose the "burn iso to cd option"

Wait until M10 is installed. You'll have K3B, the easiest burner in the world, IMO. Burns perfect ISOs every time (but it does have a weakness for bin/cue files - ilegal vcd's anyhow! )

Awesome!

I do wonder though. I play a lot of games and I am curious if they would even run in Linux. I guess I could check with the manufacturers to be sure.

Good idea. Some likely will. Some will not. Take a look at the WINE project and WineX.

I bought a copy of the May 2004 "Linux Format" magazine to get my copy of Mandrake 10.0 Community. Distro came free with the magazine. There's versions with both CD-ROM and DVD. I don't have a burner on my laptop (I'm travelling) so it was easier to go to Barnes and Noble for it.

Great! Thanks vectordrake!

I am a big gamer and I was being told by some co-workers that with Linux, if you are a gamer, the switch is not worth making.

I was also told that HP Products do not have any support under Linux either...meaning to drivers or anything But I guess I can get the answer to that from all of you here in this Forum That what you guys are here for .

Come to find out about my All-in-One printer, it has some drivers from sourceforge.com as an open source but hp does not provide technical or email support for it. Funny, isn't it?

My understanding is that the HP all-in-one has a better linux driver than what shipped for Win. Better color, I think. That's what's making me save for the psc1210.

You'll find some games run better with Linux - like Quake III and UT

HP PSC 1210

Hey vectordrake,

The HP PSC 1210 is an awesome all in one at a good low price. I saw a price on it for like $99 at http://www.hpshopping.com under the All-In-One category and first option.

Thanks for the link. I actually have seen this model for sale a lot at some of the chains that have branches around here, like Compusmart, Staples, and Wacky Wheatleys(that's how they answer the phone, with a manic sounding voice, too!LOL) and they have had some "after rebate" specials that sweeten the deal even more. I had become disillusioned with inkjet printers because of their high cost after the sale - $100 in cartidges is robbery! I was gonna save up for a laser printer, but they are $600+ for the cheapest color one (HP ones are the best ones supported by Linux, BTW). A friend has this model and he likes it a lot and has said that it semms to go on and on with its ink. That's what is the selling point for me. I'd rather pay $300 for a printer that costs me $100/yr than $100 for one that costs me $200/yr. How is the ink consumption?
