You can download Mandrake 10 Community using bittorent from this link:

It only took me a few hours to get the 3 cd's. It was real fast last night!

And please leave your bittorent window open until you have uploaded as much as you have downloaded.

Ok a question here:
Do mandrake 10.0 comunity comes with the kernel-source so I can install the Nvidia driver?
I just installed MDK 10 Comm. Downloaded the latest nvidia driver from their site and ran it. It installed and runs fine...

So therefore when the Official version is released, it's probably going to have "old" software like GNOME 2.4, Mozilla 1.6, KDE 3.2.0, gcc 3.3.2, xmms 1.2.9, kernel 2.6.3? Maybe I should download it now then.

Mandrake 9.2 had a kernel source, all you had to do is download it from ftp... just because it wasn't on the CD doesn't mean it didn't exsist.

But for what it is worth, they actually have 2 kernel sources on the CD for 2.6.3-4mdk kernel. One is the regular full-blown source "kernel-source-2.6.3-4mdk" and the other one is "kernel-source-stripped-2.6.3-4mdk" that just installs the stuff you need to compile stuff like the NVidia drivers. I compiled the NVidia drivers last night and it workes great.

They also have an old kernel and kernel source "kernel-2.4.25-2mdk" on the CDs, so read and don't install the wrong one!
