I purchased Mandriva 2008 Power Pack thinking that it would be better, after all you get LinDVD, 3 Months e-training, and a 3 month subscription to Cedega. Well, I downloaded it, burned it, installed it to my 2nd hard drive which I like to reserve for Linux only, and keep my 1st hard drive for Windows. It won't boot. I tried it several other times, redownloaded and reburned and installed again, still won't boot. Figured maybe something is wrong with my computer. Installed PCLOS, works like a charm. Well by this time I am determined to make it work. After all I spent money on it. Installed on my Windows hard disk and dual booted with Windows and Mandriva. This worked. So I enter my registration key, decide to check out the e-training. Folks it ain't nothing special. I can get the same info from any other free wiki's or help files. So, lets try Cedega. Go to install it and gives me a bad script error. Install it anyway, and then Cedega tells me my subscription is expired. LinDVD--left me with big green line at the top when I go to play a DVD. Figured it was my DVD, got out of Linux, booted windows fired up CyberDVD or whatever it's called and the DVD plays fine, looks good, and no green line. Long story short, reinstalled PCLOS on the same partition as Mandriva was. Just didn't feel like re-partitioning, and perhaps reinstalling windows and Linux all over. Still have some bugs to work out but not too big of a deal. Montior says resolution is 1600 x 1200 but looks like 800 x 600 to me. Everything is still big. Compiz-Fusion is working. I have 3D effects. If I go to the default monitor settings it will break my system. Supposed to be 1680 X 1050. Might just try installing Wine, if I try to play games in Linux. I can still play them in Windows with no problem.
