The Mandrake 10 beta . . . it runs well ( not too many bugs for a beta ) so you could try:( Has kernel 2.6 and XFree 4.4 and KDE 3.2  . . . . all the new goodies )ftp://ftp.nluug.nl/pub/os/Linux/distr/Man...ndrake-iso/i5863 ISO files and one md5sum file ;)But do never replace your primary distro by a beta !:D Bruno

Wise AdviceAre there NO Primary Distros that already come with the 2.6 kernel???As I have Suse 8.2 on it's own drive 10G for now, I am going to try Xandos desktop 2.0 and Vector linux on another (Hopefully, havent tried it yet) a Yast 10G  partioned drive. May before  Xandros arrives may an opportunity to try Mandrake???Although mandrake does not support the Epson c64 Printer this may not be a wise choice???   B)  :D  colin

If you have not tried Mandrake yet . . this might be your chance . . . and there might be an Epson driver that will suit the C64 . . maybe not 100% but still it might be good enough to print . . . And it gives you the chance to see the new KDE and use the 2.6 kernel in a Mandrake version that was specially made to run the 2.6 :DB) Bruno

kamicota: i also find it strange that there are no major distros with 2.6 as default yet. You'd think that once it's released they would put out a new verion of their distro... but i guess that wouldn't leave much time to test it :)

Well isn't that nice :lol:

No, i don't think it's a live cd. I'm pretty sure you have to install it to the hard drive.

That's happened to me to... in other programs than Kget also. Maybe it has something to do with the files being so big? I don't know...  Anyway, i guess the only way to know for sure if the download is good is to run the check sum on it.

Try this instead:md5sum -c MD5SUM.MandrakeLinux-10.0-beta1-CD2.i586.isoAssuming that's the "correct" name of the file with the MD5sums in it. It should say [OK] if the md5sum in the file matches the one calculated from the ISO.

Yikes. You can also just run MD5SUM for each and compare the numbers directly. The format of the md5sum check file looks wrong to me. I've never seen it with the GPG Signature in it before. Personally, I'd stay away from the Mandrake 10 beta from what I've heard so far. It's very early and will probably change a lot before release. I thought that Mandrake 9.2 has a 2.6 kernel available, just not installed by default. That'd probably be a better way to go about it.I think the reason that many distros haven't put 2.6 in yet is because it has a lot of new stuff in it. I think distro makers are also being more cautious, which in my opinion, is a very good thing.

Thoughts Jason  :o  Maybe I DON'T have MD5SUM installed I understand it has to be downloaded for Windows to do the same checks.And Yes  :thumbsup:  as much as I have dcownloaded Mandrake 10 I HAVE seen the Forums experience with it and they are NOT Explorers like me IT may be safe to leave it well alone for now.BUT I'm getting Antsy to TRY  :D  :o  another DistroBut that's the Scorpio Intensity & Impatience taking control  :thumbsup:  :D colin  :D

Hi ColinEvery Linux distro has md5sum installed . . . so as long as you did the download in Linux, doing the checksum should work, just try again without the $  . . . Also the Mandrake 10 beta is pretty stable, so no worries there . . . . sure most of the time Drakes betas are buggy as a Christmas tree . . .  . . but this beta is an exception and you are safe to try it.Colin, you wanted adventure . . . well here it is . . don't back down now ( after all we are here to help you ) and just download CD2 again if it did not finish completely :thumbsup: :DB) Bruno
