When I got the box from UPS they told me I needed to pay 45 extra USD because the box was sent as "CD's and documents" and not as "Books and companion CD's", which don't pay taxes.Another problem is that they declared the cost of the items as 89.00 USD (Power Pack 8.0 plus shipment) instead of 69.00 USD, which was the price for the Power Pack alone.In addition to recently introduced technologies such as Magic Dev, NTFS partition resizing, ACPI power-management, "Zeroconf" network support, Native POSIX Threads Library for Xfree and expanded Wi Fi support, Mandrake 10.0-Community offers countless improvements, such as a beautiful desktop theme, improved configuration tools and of course KDE 3.2, GNOME 2.4.2, Open Office 1.1, Mozilla 1.6, The Gimp 1.2.5. MANDRAKE proves linux just keeps getting better but why tarnish it by releasing beta software for sale?
I will use the example of the site ftp.All of the files will be assumed to be located in the root directory /usr/local/Mandrake72.
One significant change is that the installation CDs no longer are self contained, and one can only update the 7.2 CDs from a 7.2 or 7.1 system.
(The 7.1 updates could be run completely from the CD image.) This page is to give step by step instructions for updating the distributions so that CDRoms can be cut which for example include all of the updated files or include extra rpm files of particular interest to your own site.
Mandragora officinarum, mandrake This attempt to explain the name is, mostly, taken from ‘Mystic Mandrake’, C. The most logical explanation for the name is that it was Latinised from two Sanskrit words; ‘Mandros’, ‘sleep’ and ‘Agora’, ‘substance’.
The whole, therefore, meaning ‘sleep producing drug’.
