This happened with both 1.1095 and 1.1096 (the correct current version).

A fresh install from hard drive of the latest cooker starts off normally 
and proceeds through package selection and installation. The estimate 
of time remaining gradually increases until the process eventually 
stops with a dialog that there's been an error opening the RPM database 
in /mnt/var/lib/rpm. Clicking OK returns me to package selection 
dialog.

There are additional messages on the terminals:

[Bug 22225] [kernel] New: Old 'aacraid' drivers in Mandriva Kernels

User ID: 78447, 1 bugs reported (0 fixed, 0 duplicate, 0 invalid), 1 comments.

http://qa.mandriva.com/show_bug.cgi?id=22225

      Distribution: 2006.0-official
           Summary: Old 'aacraid' drivers in Mandriva Kernels
           Product: kernel
           Version: 2.6.12-12mdk
          Platform: All
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: high
          Priority: normal
         Component: kernel
        AssignedTo: kernel <at> mandriva.com
        ReportedBy: james <at> bytehosting.com

Mandriva 2006LE ships with accraid driver version 1.1.2 which has serious flaws
in operation of aacraid devices.

Heavy I/O results in either "kernel panic" or "scsi0: refusing to write to
offline device".

Driver Version 1.1.5 fixes these problems.

IMHO, it should be great to be able to switch easily the default browser.
I prefer Konqueror which is very well integrated in KDE environment.
But, sometimes I use FF for some crappy web sites which make KDE crash.
In KDE environment, Konqueror must be the default browser.

[Bug 22226] [vile] New: rpm spec file installs components into incorrect directory (w/ patch to fix)


http://qa.mandriva.com/show_bug.cgi?id=22226

      Distribution: 10.0-official
           Summary: rpm spec file installs components into incorrect
                    directory (w/ patch to fix)
           Product: vile
           Version: 9.4-1mdk
          Platform: All
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: normal
         Component: vile
        AssignedTo: daouda <at> mandriva.com
        ReportedBy: xyzzy <at> speakeasy.org

vile is built to expect it's macros and help file in /usr/share/vile and the
binary filter programs in /usr/lib/vile, which is perfectly reasonable.  The
problem is that the %makeinstall macros puts these parts into /usr/bin and
/usr/share.  This puts lots of files directly into /usr/share and /usr/bin, and
keeps vile from finding them, so syntax highlighting and help don't work.

This simple patch to the spec file will make everything work correctly.  The
key
is to use %makeinstall_std, which puts everything in the right spot.  Then just
adjust the %files to reflect new locations.

Unless I became braindead real recent and forgot how to read, I'm pretty
sure I read:  "... packages will ever get current on *cooker* for
x86_64".

So... you listed packages for cooker, then you started talking about
updates for 2006.  Which is it?  Those packages you're listing up there

[Bug 21918] [Installation] NEW: [boot.iso] impossible to detect netwok devices, even with QEMU

User ID: 1972, 12 bugs reported (0 fixed, 1 duplicate, 1 invalid), 39 comments.

http://qa.mandriva.com/show_bug.cgi?id=21918

------- Comment #2 from upsnag2 <at> charter.net  2006-05-01 07:24 -------
My Cooker is in a bad state after applying the KDE 3.5.2 update so I dedided to
try a clean install.

Unfortunately, the boot.iso still says "No NET device found".

[Bug 22227] [amarok] New: Amarok version under x86_64

User ID: 10488, 13 bugs reported (7 fixed, 0 duplicate, 1 invalid), 27 comments.

http://qa.mandriva.com/show_bug.cgi?id=22227

      Distribution: cooker
           Summary: Amarok version under x86_64
           Product: amarok
           Version: 1.4-0.beta3.4mdk
          Platform: x86_64
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: normal
         Component: packaging
        AssignedTo: lmontel <at> mandriva.com
        ReportedBy: tbigot <at> tmgo.net

Since many weeks, we don't have any update of Amarok for x86_64 archs. We still 
are at the amarok-1.4-0.beta2.2mdk.x86_64 version.

It prevents users like me to report bugs, and to use properly the program.

For example, with the only version we have (amarok-1.4-0.beta2.2mdk.x86_64), 
reading streams doesn't work.

Can someone make the last build for the current version ?
Thanks in advance.
