Man how can you say that? It works absolutely great. Have you installed alsa mixer and adjusted your sound in KDE CC, or adjusted your volume settings in KMIX? I am telling you, I have used Mandrake 9.2, 10.0 Community, 10.0 Power Pack and now Mandrake 10.1 Community> Mandrake 10.1 by far, and I mean by far, its not even close is by far more superior. Just because someone doesn't know it, doesn't mean it doesn't exist. SuSE is much much more complicated, And the packages are far from beeing updated all the time!

Even _in fedora you can even not add individual packages in graphical mode!

Solution:
_http://easyurpmi.zarb.org/ ,

then urpmi.removemedia -a

You can follow instructions from the site.

Mandrake is too greedy

Mandrake used to be good and closer to the end user. Now they become more and more greedy. After being mandrake club member for 2 years. I dropped Mandrake for Suse because I want to use the "free" Kde 3.3 upgrade on Suse 9.1. As fas as I know, in most cases, you will find Suse rpms much easier than Mandrakes, especially the latest KDE rpms. Even with the latest 10.1 release, Mandrake doesn't have KDE 3.3 as the default and ask you to be a member in order to use it. What the hell.

Ok, I back track from my previous comments that I would give it a miss. I bought a dvd at the recent Linux Expo in London with 10.1 Community and I'll admit that it seems very stable so far, but I am going to update KDE as soon as I can.

Well, I have got to agree, as far as desktop, KDE is working fine.

The downer is my GeForce 4 Ti4600... I Guess....

The installer recognizes the vid-card, only to exclude the load "glx" in the x.org file.... This leads to the fact that I am not able to even play Chromium or open Open Office....

This sux0rz...

Every time I uncomment the loag "glx" by removing the # while being root this step gets undone.

Steps:
1. Log in KDE as root to uncomment load "glx".
2. Save x.org file.
3. Reboot X (even tried rebooting the entire pc)
4. Start X, to discover that the system has put the # in front of load "glx" again.


I hope to have an answer for this soon, as I really like Mdk 10.1 with KDE.


(If you haven't figured it out yet, I am a hopeless Linux n00b... please help me out???????)


Cheers,

tekki.

10.1 Community is more polished...

...tahn 10.0 official or Powerpack edition. I have tried both and also 9.1 and 9.2.

10.1 is more 'out of the box' compatible in my experience.

As far as I have seen things in 10.1, it was quite nice, but due to the lack of glx, I decided to "downgrade" my system to 10.0

This resulted in my system working and handling the GLX of my GeForce 4 Ti4600 flawlessly.

Not sure if 10.1 is so great - a lot of stuff is missing and you have to prowl RPMS cooker sites for necessary packages.
Installed Nautilus, but it won't even start up.

Installed Mozilla, same problem. Hmphh. At least Firefox works.

Not at all

You don't have to prowl anything.

all you do is update your urmpi sources with PLF and Contrib and you get it all. I have mozilla and firefox working flawlessly as with any other software I installed so far on 10.1.

Always use urmpi and you get stability.

Also installed ATI drivers for 9600XT and everything works A -ok. #d and all, dual head also.

Does 10.1 have KDE theme manager bundled in with KDE? If so I'd definetely consider it plus I learned stuff a bit more easily under 10.0 (although aggravated with it). Would love to upgrade but only if abandoning 9.0 is worth it. What do you guys think? Stick with 9 or go with 10.1 community?

I wish I could help, but regarding 10.1 and 10.0 I can honestly say:

- 10.0 did work with my GeForce 4 Ti4600 where 10.1 could not.

So maybe that helps you out a little bit.

It is to say that 10.1 was a great neat install regarding the other hardware periphs.
(Could already use my optical mouse during the installation in 10.1 and this could not be achieved when installing 10.0. It works fine in 10.0 itself though. )

I too agree its great for people like me (newbie + Murphys law supporter) . But there are quite a few things that still irks me.

- The urpmi sources have been known to stay down for extended periods of time. (too long)
- New drivers needed for graphical cards with XOrg. I know this isnt MDKs problem but should they really have released this with out 3D support for major graphical cards?
- Sometimes urpmi installs things (like apache2) so far from the norm it makes customizing and sometimes configuring certain applications a real bear.
