Just change your sources to the Official ones in urpmi and run a system update. I find the community edition to be fine though. (go to www.urpmi.org/easyurpmi to change your sources).

I tried 10 Community and had a very rough go. When 10 Official came out, I installed that with no problems. But from what I understand, if you update 10 Comm like XavierP said, you should have 10 Official.

I've just saw @ mandrake ( here http://www.mandrakesoft.com/products/10 ) that

" ATI™Rage 128/Pro & Radeon, NVIDIA, Matrox G200/G400/G500 and much more! "

Does this mean that during it's instalation it automaticaly detects and configure my ati radeon (9600 pro) WITH 3d support?

No - it means that if you buy the full boxed set you get proprietary drivers as part of your installation. The drivers are not available in the download edition.

As a user who just installed mandrake 10 official, and an owner of a radeon 9600 mobility pro i can give you an affirmative on my card, it installed "radeon fglrx" driver when i installed(with working 3d support), i'm not sure what version of the driver it used, but i got 0 performance increase by going to the latest driver from the ati site.

I hope this helps, but its a breeze to get the ATI cards going in mandrake 10 official with the latest ATI driver otherwise...are you having problems?
