Installation CD 4


I am fairly new to linux and have been trying Fedora Core 2 and now switched to Mandrake 10. When I try to add some programs I am asked for Installation CD 4. I used only 3. How do I get the 4th disk?

Thanks, Rick

not to start a war, but linking CD4 is sort of a "grey" area, i think. CD4 was intended for people that pay for the boxed set of CD's from MDK. but, there are quite a few mirrors out there that have the iso's available for free. a Google search will turn up quite a few hits for it, so it's not like it's a big secret. still, i don't know if giving a link to a specific CD4 download location is OK in the context of this forum. it might be better to check with a mod/admin here before doing so. there is nothing really earth shattering/can't do without on CD4.......documentation, mostly. a few odd ball apps.

Hi otish1000c,

You remark is very interresting. I mean there is something not very clear with mandrake distribution : one which is free and one for commercial purpose, and there is this famous 4th CD. Is it belonging to the commercial or to the free distribution. As you said there is nothing commercial on it. I don't know? If somebody has the solution?

If I made a mistake by broadcasting this URL, I apologize. Personally I find this odd. I make a point of specifying that I bought the powerpack : 79 euros so I don't fell ashamed.

Another thing : Discovery => 2 CDs
PowerPack => 6 CDs this is not equal to 4??????????

Thanks for your response.....

Is a 4th CD really needed? Don't think so, commercial software is ok, but there are so many open source solutions.
how about the online updates?

That works for me.

The Power Pack's 5th and 6th CD's are extra applications and commercial software. You get a lot more development software with the Power Pack - this takes up most of the 5th CD. Disc 6 is stuff like proprietory drivers, RealPlayer, FlashPlayer etc etc.

The "free" Disc 4 has documentation, some development software (Mozilla development is on disc 4) and a few extra applications - there's lots of apache stuff on disc 4.

Hi eisman,

I agree with you that CD 4th is not essential, I just want to know if it belongs to the commercial or to the free distribution?????

Thanks....

I don't know. I got my disc 4 in a pack that someone gave me.
I was impressed with Mandrake enough to go out and buy the Power Pack - haven't looked back since.
The PP was worth it for the manuals alone, esp for a noob like me.

The 4th and 5th CDs of the download edition are commercial and proprietary programs that are made available only to Mandrakeclub silver members and above. They include things like the flash plugins, Real Player, Adobe Acrobat, and other commercial programs which can be downloaded and installed separately, but its easier to install from the CDs. Other programs included the actual NVidea drivers. Other programs include linux drivers for Conextant winmodems which Linextant actually charges about $15.00 for. There are evaluation copies of VMWare and Crossover Office also. Does that mean that its ok to give these to other people? YOU BE THE JUDGE!

I do not believe there would be anything illegal about downloading the 4th cd. If you look at the iso names they are all named Mandrakelinux10.0-Official-Download-CDx.i586.iso. Now that is just it, OFFICIAL DOWNLOAD = DOWNLOAD version for which cd 4 being named in the same manner is part of the download version. and no it doesn contain commercial software. Although if you try compiling some programs like intel fortran and c++ compilers, you will find that you need libc6-2-2.so.3 lib files. now you have alternatives here, either download and compile glibc and glibc linux headers (pain in the buttocks) or just get it from cd 4. It would be illegal downloading the full versions (power pack, etc) which in turn could be quite tricky to find seeing that most illegal progs posted on the net are all for windows, which is understandable seeing most people uses win.

ATI drivers want a gcc-c++ compiler around. without CD 4 we're up a creek as far as having any sort of control panel.
