> 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.

Fixed AFAICS: https://qa.mandriva.com/show_bug.cgi?id=51587

> 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.

I've seen that behaviour before too, might be a good idea opening a
bug report (in the new Mageia bugzilla when it's up) if the bug still

> 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.
> Reguards.

In principal it's good, but I don't know if the current gfxboot
supports that. (again open a report in the new bugzilla when it's up).

You'd better keep a track of this email (discussing such bugs now
might mean they'll get lost before a bugzilla is even open :)).
