Unhappy "Mandrake 10.1" needs 4 CDs??


Hi, I'm completely new to linux and to mandrake/iva.

I downloaded the 10.1 ISOs from LinuxISO.org, but when installing, it says I need a fourth CD containing KDE on it... the ISO site only gave three installation CDs. Does the KDE CD have to be downloaded from the KDE website? I told it to skip installing that and now I just get stuck at terminal at boot.

Can anyone point me to the location to acquire that fourth CD, supposedly containing KDE on it?

Thanks,
Brian

There's a difference between the label of the CD (1-3 for example) and what it's called internally... why... dunno. I suspect you should try CD 3 (KDE is on the 3 CD version). Otherwise I think you got 1/2 of the official set (6 CDs).

ok, so I'll try to insert 3 again when it asks for 4... it's just in the installer, it lists the three than says CD 4 - KDE...

I'll try doing that later tonight.

Thanks.

There is a fouth CD to upgrade your KDE version to 3.3... I think if you just OK or Cancel it will continue the installation no problem...

I just tried to compile it against 2005LE, no-go for now (for me).

To try for yourself; goto the KDE site, download and run "konstruct".
View the readme, choose how much to complie (base, all, etc), goto that directory, "make install", change some variables, ect (in the readme). Not for the newbie.

PS: I compiled "all" on a 2.6 Ghz celeron, it took about 30 hours... then I ran into an error (error 2 durring knights, prolly a bad path or something)

10.1 shipped with KDE 3.2 later option to upgrade for members of club (disk 4) to KDE 3.3. Now 3.4 is out and also available I think for members...

Yes you can get it from KDE http://www.kde.org/ but I would suggest sticking with the current version you have and do a little more research before jumping int to get the latest...

When you install I think it asks you if you have the 4 disks and to check the boxes of any you don't have - check the box for the 4th disk and it won't ask you for it.

Ah yeah, it works now, thanks a lot. I guess using KDE 3.2 isn't going to kill me, right?

I finally figured out how to do updates, but some of them wouldn't work, they were security ones, they said that they weren't found or the signature was incorrect?

I know I probably should be starting a new thread, but does anyone else have this problem, and how can I get those updates downloded?

Thanks again,
-Brian

Either the site is down, or you don't have permission to that site, etc. Findout where those D/Ls are coming from, and change that urpmi entry.

3.2 is ok, 3.3 is a *little* better, 3.4 is a bit more of a bump up.
But, the differences are somewhat minor.
