My experience with Mandrake 10.0 community

Hi all,
I just got Mandrake 10.0 community installed and setup nicely and it's really cool. I did have a few problems at first though.
My mouse didn't work through the installation and when it had finished. A workaround for this is to unplug the keyboard, plug it back in, unplug the mouse and plug it back in.
I did find a permanent fix though, to use the 2.4 kernel instead of the 2.6 one.
I like the new KDE especially, there's a good performance increase.
Other than th little issue with the mouse, everything is sweet, although the new menu will take some getting used to.
By the way, the reason why my mouse didn't work is because of my mobo, an Asus Cusi-m. I found a bug report similar to this on the Mandrake site so hopefully they'll fix it in the final release.
If you have any questions you can ask here, I will probly keep an eye on this forum for a bit.

Very kewl to hear :-)

Although, this should be posted in Member Success Stories under Linux - General (not bitching or anything, just a comment)...

Be good to hear if the rest of Mandrake runs better than it used to, never wanted to go anywhere near it as it was way too buggy
