 Mandrake 10 RC and My Laptop

Luis Alves reviews Mandrake 10 RC installed on a IBM T30 Thinkpad laptop. Also mozillaquest reports on Mandrake 10's release.

"My Thinkpad can standby, suspend, with no problem using kernel 2.6, all my hardware was configure after installation with no extra work including my external CISCO wireless card. I was able to make my ThinkPad special buttons work with the tp*rpm from Mandrake just by installing them. After installation a changed my sound driver to use ALSA, because default installation was using OSS. This is really a great achievement for laptop owner, the new 2.6 kernel and the KDE makes everything more responsive, and the overall experience of using the environment feels faster."
