    Mandrake 10 or Mandriva 2005

    i have mandrake 10 official version with no updates..since iam a complete newbie at linux..i never updates even a single package..after coming to our forums with generous help i was able to go thru the update process but found out tht updates are totalling to 1.3 my question is shall i download updates and install them (i will download from windows so updating selected ones will surely b a problem especially for me) or download mandriva 2005 and install it? help will be grately appreciated and ya i searches for mandriva iso sites all of them i found were ftp's could someone get me http site as my dap speed is much more faster on https than ftps....thx

    It's up to you. The common theme is if it works, don't fix it. I learned this leason the hard when I upgraded from 10.1 to LE05 and had so many issues I had to re-install 10.1. LE05 is just too buggy for me, but it might be worth it for you.

    so far in my limited experience updates have broken more than they have fixed but i like to play and troubleshoot and try to make them work again i guess so i guess it doesn't matter too much. so if you have lots of extra time to play update away and when stuff breaks you really get to learn linux

    If the updates are 1.3GB I'd just get the latest version.

    Have a look at easyuprmi (see my sig) if you want to get the URLs for some update mirrors. Even 2005LE has a lot of updates.
