Some things that I noticed with Mandriva what shoud be fixed in Mageia. If you know others, add to list. Let's make a pre-buglist ;)

1. Since Mandriva 2010.0, there is a strange problem with BR-ABNT layout keyboards: when you press the , key at numpad, system prints a . instead. I've report this bug at Mandriva's Bugzilla but don't know if it was fully fixed. Other current distros are afected too. Ubuntu is one what is not.

2. For an unknow reason, when installing Mandriva on Virtualbox, installer takes a long time to install GRUB boot manager. On a real machine, this doesn' occurs. Please investigate.

3. When updating a kernel, all installed kernels are listed on GRUB screen. This is right, but can confuse some users. We should show only the last installed kernel and a menu item that leads to other menu with all other installed kernels.
