"Thank god. I am using 2007.0 on my desktop since january, and I am waiting for the next release of Ubuntu to switch. Its sad, because I am a Mandrake user since version 8.1, but since 2005, the releases became more and more buggy, a lot of packages simply dont install, and some doesnt work"

go to easyurpmi and add cooker to your repo lists (it's okay to do it right now because cooker is in a freeze for the RC of 2007.1)
urpmi.update -a
urpmi --auto-select -v
Once you've run the upgrade remember to remove the cooker repositories from urpmi.

Then, when 2007.1 is released in the next month or so add the new repos for the new release and repeat to complete the upgrade.

If you choose to switch to Ubuntu, I wish you well. It is also a very good distro.

To clarify, 2007.0 wasn't really a buggy release if you ran it stock. My issues were related to KDE 3.5.4 running the Baghira theme (from PLF RPM). When I upgraded to KDE 3.5.6 my issues with Baghira went away.

I really should have made that clear in my original post. 2007.0 has been one of the best Mandriva releases that I have used, and I have been using Mandrake/Mandriva for over 4 years now as my main system.

The bugs I had didn't reflect badly on the distro.
