I downloaded the boot.iso from a mirror moments ago and launched into an FTP install from a boot cd I made just now....

But the installer splash screen comes up with Mandrake 10.0 Community when I was expecting to see "Official" or something??

So I hopped back out so as to not waste the mirrors bandwidth to pose this question... Knowing that my mirror path is correctly pointing to official, What confirmation should I expect to see to know that 10.0 "official" is being pulled to my system?

Full tree means everything under the directory:

...../linux/Mandrakelinux/official/10.0/

command "./mkcd --discsize 716800000 -t /home/viburnum/ -a -s ../"
using mdk10 Community

No matter what I do change sizes to DVD or CD appropriate , tell it to try to fit more times, mkcd gives me the following error:

FATAL mark_and_check_list: needed packages will not fit on discs

Anyone have any clues?

I did a minimal hd install and I'm booting from and running mkcd from that. I want to get the install files onto DVDs to free up the hd space.

Thanks

Are you sure you didn't add an extrs "0" t your discsize option? That would be 7gig not 700 meg.

This is my exact command:

mkcd --discsize 716800000 -t ./5CD-Version -a -s ./hdinstall

I'm using the "mkcd" that was installed with mandrake 9.2 not the one that is in the "misc" folder of the downloaded mdk10. Also I am working from the official download not the community.

"hdinstall" is the folder where I downloaded the full tree and Im callig the above command from the folder that contains hdinstall. the structure of the folder where I execute the above command is:

10CD-Version/
5CD-Version/
contrib/
DVD-Version/
hdinstall/

I tried this command:

mkcd --discsize 4416800000 -t /mnt/hd/temp -a -s /mnt/hd/i586

to make a dvd ISO but I had this error message:

Can't locate File/NCopy.pm in @INC (@INC contains: /home/warly/files/cvs/mdk/soft/mkcd/pm/ /etc/perl /usr/local/lib/perl/5.8.0 /usr/local/share/perl/5.8.0 /usr/lib/perl5 /usr/share/perl5 /usr/lib/perl/5.8.0 /usr/share/perl/5.8.0 /usr/local/lib/site_perl . /home/warly/files/cvs/mdk/soft/mkcd/pm/) at ./mkcd line 27.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at ./mkcd line 27.


What was wrong?

No, No,

I had the same problem at first. Don't use the mkcd from the installation medium. install the rpm and use that instead. Even now, if i use the one on the "misc" folder, I get that message that you are getting. Search for the rpm in the Mandrake/RPMS folder. It's called : mkcd-3.8.7-1mdk.noarch.rpm.

I tried to install the mkcd-3.8.7-1mdk.noarch.rpm on my old mandrake 9.1 but it gives errors of version conflict. So the only way is to install mdk 10 directly from the dir i586 that is on my HD (or upgrade the mdk 9.1 with it).
I need your help: I tried to start the installation from windows with the autorun.exe in dosutils but the option "install mandrakelinux" doesn't work...

HELP
