Mandriva 2010 Spring Gnome

Filed under
MDV

Mandriva is a pretty cool Linux Distribution (distro) which I have been using since it's installation borked my Linux Mint partition. The graphical install was very simple but the installer did not recognise my Mint partition and add it to the Boot Menu. I was disappointed with this because my experience with Debian based distros is that they always recognise other Linux partitions and add them to the boot menu. I had created dual boot and triple booting systems before yet I could not get this to work with Mandriva

Playing around with the Grub bootloader is not my idea of fun and needless to say many others will not be impressed with having to do so. If you have windows installed and want a dual booting machine then the Mandriva installer will do it all automatically and do it well

This was the first time I had seriously used a Linux distro that uses RPM instead of Synaptic as the software package manager but this was not a real problem because like Mint there is a Software Manager in Mandriva that hides all the gory details about packages and libraries from the user. The Software Manager takes care of all the extra libraries you need for running any applications you install.

RHEL 7.2 has an updated kernel target

As mentioned in the beta release notes, the kernel in RHEL 7.2 contains a rebased LIO kernel target, to the equivalent of the Linux 4.0.stable series. This is a big update. LIO has improved greatly since 3.10. It has added support for SCSI features that enable VMWare VAAI support, as well as data integrity (DIF), and significant iSER work, for those of you using Infiniband. (SRP is also supported, as well as iSCSI and FCoE, of course.) Read more
