1.  Install flawless.  Nvidia 180.37 and monitor display working great.
Networking detection flawless.

2.  Kicker Problem -- Could not get Kicker menu to expand on mouse click.
It worked at first.  I expanded it to large, I added "terminal" to
favorites, and then I launched a terminal in which I ran nvidia-settings.
No problems there.  I selected "runports" which loaded the runports terminal
fine.  After that, I lost control of the Kicker menu.  I rebooted and it is
functioning normal at this time.

3.  Generate Diagnostic Sheet Problem.  After loading System Manager, I went
to generate a diagnostic sheet.  I received the following error message:

KDE Control Module.
Could not find mime type "application/octet-stream"
Could not find mime types:

After continuing to click OK through the error messages and eventually
Kwrite came up and displayed the text.  When I tried to save it, it reported
that I did not have sufficient permissions, but it saved it anyway.

4.  Still exploring and  having fun.  Thanks for the new release candidate.
