I did a Mandriva upgrade and to restore my package lists and tried a full
uninstall that way. It aborted when it couldn't uninstall a package from a
small non-Mandriva repo I had disabled.
I restored my system, removed the package and tried again. This one was very
slow (perhaps normal) and failed to install 2/3 of the packages. Nevertheless
it went through the bootloader and config stages and was able to reboot into
level 3. I saw most of KDE being installed, but X couldn't run. It seems
hardly useful as a bug report. If it is really a bug, somebody else will have
it in more detail. I will try again from the DVD. That at least will follow
what was asked for. If you want a bug report, what should it contain?
Back on my old Mandriva 2010.2.
