How Random Babbling Becomes Corporate Policy


So I decided "Hey, let's upgrade Mandrake versions! I'll switch from 9.2 to 10.0."

The 10.0 install was broken as _shit_. I tend to not like it when the installer asks for cd 4. Mind you, there were only 3 cds. Shockingly, a whole bunch of shit didn't work.

So I reinstalled 9.2, and now have this strange hybrid 9.2/10.0 system. All the branding says 10.0, and I've got KDE 3.2 instead of 3.1, but I'm running the 2.4 kernel and I have GCC again. Yes, in 10.0, GCC broke. For the non-linux- there's not a fuck of a lot you can do without GCC.

Hopefully I don't discover anything else that's thoroughly broken now.
