Mandriva 2007 Right Around the Corner?

Filed under
MDV

While folks were looking for a RC2 to be released today, news of the final being released to early seeders hits the Mandriva Club.

Although no RC2 has appeared on ftp mirrors, Final release is already being planned. It was posted today at the Mandriva Club, "As soon as possible and a few days before the final release, the Club members registered as Early Seeders will be able to download earlier the Mandriva 2007 iso images in order to make them available to the other members at release time."

Mandriva insiders are quoted as saying, "Mandriva 2007 is due out in a couple of days."

More Information on becoming an early seeder.

The new "M"

The coolest thing I like about the new release is the auto setup of xgl if your card supports it. I mean it doesnt get any easier than having to select what 3D you want to use! Not only that but it works for KDE and Gnome.

This is what you have to do to set up xgl on Ubuntu.

downloading rc1

I'm halfway through downloading rc1 on my slow 128kbit connection at 11 kbytes/sec. Should I stop it and start with rc2 or can I online update from rc1?

re: downloading rc1

It really doesn't look like there's gonna be a rc2 and Final is still a coupla days away, so I'd probably not unless you have some cap on downloads. Yes you can update it to rc2 or Final once it's installed with little problem at this point.
