Really? I guess you have not tried upgrading a previous release to 2008.1. It renders your system unusable! That is not a minor glitch, that is a major issue!

I hosed a system before I read the Errata, which does mention it. My system get Boot failed, even with the old kernel, so the steps in Mandriva's Errata are not helpful. I have yet to get it working. Since then I have seen a lot of people having the same issue. Mandriva does not seem to care or find it necessary to fix it. Wonder if they even tested it? Mandriva has some real Quality Assurance issues.
