Mandriva One 2007 0.1 GNOME Roadtest

Filed under
MDV

I don't even know what's the official name of this one ("One"), as I've already seen it written...
2007.0 Beta 1
2007 0.1 Alpha
2007 Alpha
Whatever its name is, it's the preview release of the upcoming Mandriva 2007. Right now, as an installable LiveCD ("One"), in four flavors.

I couldn't help myself but testing the GNOME one. And I'm rather perplexed with what I saw.

First of all, I used for this my legendary old laptop, reputed for getting very well will live distros like: PCLinuxOS 0.92, CentOS 4.3 LiveCD, the Ubuntu line, Hedinux, MEPIS, and more.

No eccentric hardware, only my NIC (8139-based) is on PCMCIA.

To start with the good news: it works.

Full Story.
