Looks like Gwenole Beauchesne, err.... I mean Mandrake, has put out the Release Candidate for Mandrakelinux 10.0 AMD 64:
It still does not contain ISDN support as 2.6.3-10mdk kernel was not ready in time. Here are the other changes.
The eMachines stuff (alt2 IIRC) is the same than through the test ISOs but you will still have to manually replace the existing kernel with the -emachines one. You may still encounter problems though as the only
other change would concern XFree86 and some kbd ioctl(). BTW, there might be a 2.6.6 kernel for testing soon, but that won't fit on final CDs, unless it's proven to work on eMachines. The default kernel will always be 2.6.3 though.
