Good news and bad news


the bad news first – the Open Darwin install failed with the error “Still waiting for root device” so it looks like Open Darwin’s support for CD drives is even more restricted than Mandrake’s.

In good news, though, Mandrake did install completely using the second cd drive I tried. And I like it.

The Mandrake interface is a lot less ‘gimmicky’ than the Suse interface. It appears far more professional and intuitive than the Suse interface.

Also, this pc is a PII mmx 550mhz with 128mb ram. Suse crawled on this pc whereas, Mandrake is far faster. I think I have found my *nix distro of choice. Now off to play with it some more!
