Well, after more updates the device probe, The little icon with the usb symbol, doesnt wok any more. At least detecting a cdrom, it opens but I cannot do anything with it.
Having said that, of course, Firefox in Mandrive 2010 Does nothing having opened 'bigpond.com' but so does Opera!!! This is on an Intel 4 core system.
There have been no problems, so far, on single processors. This is coming from a 3 core system. Terminals seem to work ok, but why should I so many problems?
There does seem to be a problem with multi-core systems.
I installed PCLinuxOS on my, returned from service, laptop. The Acer dual core Athlon. 2009.2 works fine, but on upgrading to 2010 it became unsable, most operation ended with the crash handler popping up. I am, at this moment trying 64 bit Mandriva 2010 on it. It does seem to working, but until I can access the internet and do mre things, I will not know for sure!
I PCLOS but why is it Bl****** not working for me any more?.
I have re-installed so many times...
