Mandrake 10.1 #TBT14 Apr 2016
This was the first distro I ran full time on a laptop.
It worked great except wireless. For that I had to fight ndiswrapper to get working. I went from 10.1 to 10.2 then to Mandriva 2005. Each upgrade was another fight with ndiswrapper. I used Mandriva 2005 for awhile before deciding it was as good as Mandrake 10.1 or 10.2. I left Mandrake/Mandriva and each time I checked back in I just couldn’t get into it. Maybe it’s time to check in on Mandriva’s offspring again and see how they are.
