Not a happy story. I tried to do an upgrade. I got an error msg that 
said something was to big or words to that effect. Then for what seemed 
to be at least 2 min the DVD drive flashed continuously. Then the 
welcome to mageia appeared and install started. It went to 10 sec and 
stopped. Tried a reboot. Didn't work. I tried to do the upgrade again. 
Didn't work. Finally had to do an install. First problem was the 
thunderbird icon. After installing the program I copied the icon from 
the list of programs to the desktop. The icon is now hidden behind the 
trash icon and I  can not move or delete the trash icon to get to the 
thunderbird icon. I just rt clicked on the desktop and did an icon sort 
and managed to get thunderbird out. There is now an icon behind trash 
that I don't use very much. I will now have to reinstall some programs 
that I used in mageia 1.
