Mageia Linux has fixed its kernel upgrade process

Filed under
Linux

LAST AUTUMN I encountered and wrote about a serious glitch in a software maintenance upgrade distributed by Mageia Linux, the popular fork of Mandriva Linux that I've had installed on my desktop PC for about a year. Now the Mageia Linux distribution has permanently resolved that problem.

At the time it was a somewhat disconcerting experience, since Linux software maintenance upgrades are relatively frequent events that most often proceed quietly once authorised, and they never fail. Well, almost never. I was able to recover the system without too much difficulty however, so I wrote about how to fix the problem in order to help other Mageia Linux users that also might have encountered the same upgrade error.
