I am new to the current Mandrake and I have some questions about it. I am
not willing to join their club as an individual but definitely would
contribute to having a trilug account.
1. This club mantra is very annoying. In order to access the main forums
you have to be a member. So far I have been going to mandrakeusers.org
for answers. Is there a better repository for getting answers?
2. The urpmi seems to be tied into the club mantra. Are there sources to
go to without club status. I have found PLF sources but want to be
certain I have found all the sources I need.
3. Will cooker sources corrupt my urpmi for 9.2? I wanted tuxpaint for
my kids RH9 via apt-get or yum could not handle this. But a cooker source
gave it up to install and run.
4. Why does maelstrom under windows try to access the firewall?
I feel a little lost and listless with Red Hats change. I like the look
of Mandrake but the pressure for the club may be too much. I am not ready
for a monthly fee for linux. I do not feel ready for the challenge of
Gentoo or Debian against my hardware.
