go here: mirror.mcs.anl.gov

get the boot.iso image file

burn it and boot the computer with it and in the options point it to the ftp repository....tell it to install and you are good to go....

or go to ftp.linuxcenter.ru and download either the cd's r dvd images....it is slow though

I'm glad they didn't litter the new release with there new name (haven't seen it yet). I'm sure it will grow on me eventually. Other than that install was about the same, It is a little faster on startup compared to 10.1. But really has no difference to 10.1. Other than the the login screen is a little better than the previous releases.Driver support didn't really get any better still didn't pick up my wireless card. Had to load ndiswrapper which is a pain in the ass. And my Ati tv-in card is still buggy (no sound). Glad I switched to Nvidia for my graphics card I'm sure there are still problems with Ati cards " Just a guess". So if your planning on Upgrading, All you'll notice is the faster startups and Mozilla Firefox. Not much that I noticed other than that though so don't expect too much its kinda like the 9.1- 9.2 release just something to hold us off. Mandrake is getting better though just hope they don't make any more bad decisions like they did with Mandriva.
If your happy with 10.1 though and you have it all set up the way you like it I would hold off till the fall release of 2006. That should be better or at least thats what they keep telling there club members.

What you do is point your urpmi to the 2005LE mirrors. The issue the command "urpmi --auto --auto-select". That *should* do the trick.

Padma I tried that a couple of "posts" ago and it does not work the recommended way of upgrading is getting the boot.iso image and point it to an ftp "tree" or getting all the iso images....upgrading usin urpmi can cause a lot of problems

Did an ftp fresh install of 2005LE last night. Took 2 & one half hours during the dinner hour here. So far it is sweet. Fastest I have seen yet opening appz, fast on internet. Added bonus, this is also the first edition that I did not have to install third party drivers for the scanner in my Epson stylus cx6400. It is actually listed in the scanner setup in mcc. It does say it is an unrecognized Epson when using scanner app, but I tried er out and it had support for the 6400's full resolution and worked fine. Both my Jumpdrive and intelligent stick (usb flash drives) work automagically. I've yet to find something to complain about. No sound issues, got amaroK playing now. Really happy with look and feel of this.

I just put this new version on a compaq 2100 766Mhz 128mb ram and 40GB hd and it works way better than Mandrake 10.0. Everything went well on the install and the only issue I have now is the boot manager backgournd will not change and I have GDM, KDM and ICE DM installed and it still will not let me change the background. But other tan that this is the best version I have ever run. Network fsetup was quick and painless as well as my modem (CompUSA generic) setup without a hitch. Gnome desktop works better also.
P.S. if anyone has a solution to the boot manager display issue let me know. Thanks
Susesarus.

Are the ISOs available to the general (non-club member) public? I though they were going to be released May 1st?

The ISOs will be available. SOmetimes Mandriva is just a little slow getting them out. If they aren't out ina week or two, I'll start complaining.
