beranger.org: When I see the default KDE layout (with the horrendous 'Menu' button), I wonder how many years would take to Mandriva to figure out a better default.

Per Øyvind Karlsen: I've just finished porting urpmi (and rpmtools) to rpm 5.0, making it the first dependency solver supporting rpm 5.0! There seems to be less regressions with rpm5 currently, this was surprising considering it being a quite recent major release.
