Cool Mandrake 9.2 RC1


That's right people, we've had beta1 (On your marks...), then beta2 (Get set...) and now it's RC1 (Go! Go! Go!). Seems it's only out as BitTorrent downloads atm to share the load-smart thinking.

more rc 1

attempted to install again but failed. or maybe not.
i reinstalled beta 2 again and did an upgrade.
i seemed to have he same problem . got to install
bootloader and it stopped or it seemed to.

i just let the computer run and then after about
3 minutes of sitting there it finished.


tomorrow am going to reinstall rc1 again and
wait for it to finish.

also when upgraded there were a couple of times
the machine seemed to stop but by being patient
everything eventually started up again.

this causes the install time to increase a lot but
still it works.

There's a 2.6 test kernel with Mdk9.2, no?

2.6 test is doubtful

I highly doubt you will see the 2.6 test kernel in this release. I keep a private cooker SRPMS mirror for rebuilding software for 9.1 and just synced it again. I found no such kernel present. 9.2RC2 is supposed to be a snapshot from cooker, so I think we might need to wait a bit more.

Update: that kernel is in cooker contribs, not cooker itself

Mandrake 9.2 RC1

I have done everything to try and install this.
I have done the md5sum on all downloads.
downloaded from 5 diff. sites.
burned the cd at 4x 8 48x
and when I try to install i get a server error.

Any thoughts on this????/

Well, doing an md5sum is pointless on a bittorrent download unless you suspect that the original seed (in this case from Mandrake) was corrupt. Part of the download process is the crypotgraphic hashing like MD5 (I think they use SHA1, which is better though).

Have you verified that the disc burned correctly? Try copying ALL files from the disk to a hard drive. Make sure there are no read errors. Also, what software did you use to burn the images? What was the server error?

And, you can always try the non-GUI installers and appending "vga=normal" to the boot entry (I think you can press F1 to get there when booting from cd) such as "linux vga=normal acpi=off mem=1024MB).

I tried to install Mandrake 9.2 RC 1 on a 486 Intel machine but repeatedly ran into the same problem regarding a missing package. I don't know the name of the package since the installer didn't specify it. I tried installing with danish language support, then english, but both failed. Then I tried the minimum install (without WineX and documentation), but that failed too. The harddisk was formatted and mounted as "/".
Does Mandrake 9.2 work with 486 processors or what else am I doing wrong? I'm currently downloading Mandrake 9.1 to see if that also fails. HELP!
