Can you drop a note on your next thursday LWN news page? :-) - some users have experienced problems with Linux-Mandrake 5.2 FTP downloading. There were various causes and we hope everything is ok now. Nevertheless, due to a strong demand from users, we start a new experience: we have put a first iso9660 image for CD-burning on a FTP site: ftp://linux.origo.no/pub/linux/mandrake/mandrake.iso we hope it will be useful for users in order to burn Linux-Mandrake CDs easily. Just download mandrake.iso and burn a CD with it (with cdrecord under linux, or with any cd soft under Windows). Note: it's 550 Mbytes - Linux-Mandrake 5.2 GPL Edition cheap CDs shipment has started in Europe and in the USA. We are still looking for new distributors, especially in England, Ireland, northern Europe (Sweden, Norway, Finland, Denmark...). - The PowerPack Edition is delayed for 15 days for various reasons and will be available first in: USA, Australia, Canada, Europe. The PowerPack will contain Corel WordPerfect 8.0 Personal Edition (I've tested it last Sunday - wouaouh!). A complete description of the PowerPack will be available on our pages (http://www.linux-mandrake.com) on thursday. Thanx a lot.
