Supported upgrade from existing versions of Mandriva 2010.1, 2010.2.
The procedure was quite reconciled over the past two months, so the upgrade should work. But, as always before:
you should back up your data before upgrading;
If you upgrade your laptop (notebook), then connect to the network! You may need to update more than 2000 packages, and it may take some time;
Do not allow any network-intensive applications traffic during the upgrade process, because You need to reserve enough bandwidth for the update.
