Learning the Hard Way

I thought I was ever so clever getting the Mandrake 9.1 CDs early and installing them today. Yikes. I'm finding many problems brought on by the switch to glibc 2.3. A word to the wise: make sure your favorite apps work with it before you upgrade. Thankfully Red Hat, Slackware, and Debian users are all in the same boat, so this should be fixed relatively quickly.

The Master comments: Ahh, the joys of being on the cutting edge. I could tell some horror stories about the cutting edge from my work experience, but I'm not sure I want to relive those 5 months again.

  1. Backup c:\windows\QUICKEN.INI
  2. Open QUICKEN.INI in Notepad and delete everything in the section [Internet]
  3. Replace that section with this:

After I did that, everything worked fine.
