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.

Chromium and Firefox: New Features

  • Chromebook Owners Will Soon Be Able to Monitor CPU and RAM Usage in Real-Time
    Chromium evangelist François Beaufort announced today that Google's Chrome OS engineers have managed to implement a new feature that will let Chromebook owners monitor the CPU usage, RAM, and zRam statistics in real-time. The feature was implemented in the Chrome Canary experimental channel and can be easily enabled by opening the Google Chrome web browser and accessing the chrome://flags/#sys-internals flag. There you'll be able to monitor your Chromebook's hardware and see what's eating your memory or CPU during heavy workloads, all in real-time. "Chrome OS users can monitor in real-time their CPU usage, memory and zRam statistics thanks to the new internal page chrome://sys-internals in the latest Canary," said François Beaufort in a Google+ post. "For that, enable the experimental chrome://flags/#sys-internals flag, restart Chrome, and enjoy watching real-time resource consumption."

The ISS just got its own Linux supercomputer

This experiment conducted by Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) and NASA aims to run a commercial off-the-shelf high-performance computer in the harsh conditions of space for one year -- roughly the amount of time it will take to travel to Mars.
