Filed under
MDV

Still pursuing its objective of offering an accessible, affordable and ever faster Linux distribution to everyone, Mandriva is putting the final touches on its brand new distro: Mandriva Linux 2007, available fall 2006.

This new version of the operating system was conceived to meet even more precisely the needs and expectations of individual users and small businesses.

To this end, besides the qualities that ensured the success of Mandriva Linux 2006, it includes brand new innovations in the fields of office suite applications, Internet, multimedia and the new virtualization and 3D-accelerated desktop technologies.

Mandriva Linux 2007 also aims to achieve greater hardware compatibility than ever before. Hardware compatibility was extended in order to ensure greater simplicity in the installation and use of the product.

Mandriva Linux 2007 will be available in three versions: Discovery (for the Linux beginner), PowerPack (for the advanced computer user) and PowerPack+ (for SOHO users).

Security News

  • Report: Linux security must be upgraded to protect future tech
    The summit was used to expose a number of flaws in Linux's design that make it increasingly unsuitable to power modern devices. Linux is the operating system that runs most of the modern world. It is behind everything from web servers and supercomputers to mobile phones. Increasingly, it's also being used to run connected Internet of Things (IoT) devices, including products like cars and intelligent robots.
  • security things in Linux v4.6
    Hector Marco-Gisbert removed a long-standing limitation to mmap ASLR on 32-bit x86, where setting an unlimited stack (e.g. “ulimit -s unlimited“) would turn off mmap ASLR (which provided a way to bypass ASLR when executing setuid processes). Given that ASLR entropy can now be controlled directly (see the v4.5 post), and that the cases where this created an actual problem are very rare, means that if a system sees collisions between unlimited stack and mmap ASLR, they can just adjust the 32-bit ASLR entropy instead.
