Thumbs up Mandrake 10.1 Official Impressions


After getting all 4 discs of mandrake 10.1 official, I proceeded yesterday to install them. I decided to upgrade my 10.0 official installation istead of blowing the whole thing and starting from scratch.

The upgrade went smoothly (better than with the 10.1 community version). The overall feel is that it is more responsive and slicker that 10.0 THe only things that were not working right of the bat were lm_sensors (it is fixed now) and the upsd service (still trying to fix - my guess on this one is that there is a conflict between the apc monitorign and that).

Overall I'm very satisfied with it , and th eonyl question that I have is if thee is a way of doing a bootalbe DVD with all 4 cd's in it.

Update......

........fixed the apcupsd problem. The issue was that the usb device path change on this new version, therefore it was nto detecting it properly and the service could not start because of that....

this is interesting, and again points to the problems that others may encoutner if they try to upgrade, specially comming form older versions. If you do that, be aware of how services communicate with the hardware. In previous version it may be that the hardware was not detected completely or not detected at all. Version 101. does a lot of detecting, therefore workarounds that helped to get things done in previous versions may not work with the new one.

I have also noticed that IPv6 works, or at leasts is not causing conflicts, specially when Icopy files to and from mdk and windows xp machines using Samba. This was an issue for me in 10.0 and I had to disable IPv6 to get rid of those problems.

Yeah, upgrades can be VERY problematic.

What is strange is that the upgrade process does not provide the ability to look at changed script files and apply changes from the OLD files against the new files.

That way the upgrade can handle inconsistencies with user intervention.

10.1 seems to have this feature with packages installed using the rpmdrake gui, which is very nice.

The upgrade never pulls up these same screens.

Weird.

all in all

it is working fine which is a good thing, because I did not have the same experience with 10.1 ce....question. why the syslog even though I change its permissions so that my user can seeit, it reverts back to non readble for everybpdy execpt root?

also, how do I build a bootable dvd image with all 4 discs?

wrong, official just means final version in the series. u dont have to pay for it, u can wait a few more weeks till its released to the public.

kde3.3

So far 10.1 is working great! I like the network icon in KDE that shows in/out speeds.

Anyone know how to install KDE3.3 instead of 3.2 ?

if you have the 4th CD, kde 3.4 will be there, you will have to set up a urpmi repository pointing to that media. Be careful though, I tried to do that and after the upgrade I had lots of problems. (I was using the communicty edition thoug).

Equinox how did you do the upgrade form kde 3.2 to kde 3.3? can you please explain in detail?

mandrake 10.1

i'm really not familiar on how to add sources.. i tried to add it as a local source, but it gave me an error, i'm sure i didn't set it up correctly. can someone post a walkthrough?

its located on /mnt/cdrom/kde3.3/

this is on the official powerpack dvd. urpmi doesn't work because it wants to update kde3.2 (default which is installed).

As posted you can "just use urpmi" without even having to utilize additional sources.

Just CD to the /mnt/cdrom/kde3.3 directory and urpmi *
