I downloaded the Mandrake 10.1 Community Edition images and tried it with Dazuko 2.0.4. As with Mandrake 10.0 (and Fedora Core 2), capabilities have been built into the kernel. Running `./configure' with Dazuko 2.0.4 this is properly detected.

Recompiling the kernel is pretty easy... usually. But Mandrake has some issues with their default kernel settings.

With 10.0 there was the problem that security modules would not be installed after running `make modules_install`.

With 10.1 there is the problem that the modules are installed in /lib/modules/ but the kernel goes by the original name of The easiest solution is to rename the "custom" modules directory to the name of the original directory.

People who are familiar with compiling kernels will not have a problem with this. People who are not will most likely be confused.

Hopefully for Mandrake 10.2 they will "clean up" their kernel defaults. Not only should Capabilities be built as a module by default, but the process of compiling new kernels should also be fixed so that users only have to do the standard:

# make menuconfig
# make
# make modules_install
# make install

If anyone has access to Mandrake members or bug lists, it would be helpful to point these things out to them.
