Mandriva Linux 2007 Beta Review

Filed under
MDV
Reviews

Mandriva is still quite a popular distribution amongst new Linux users and we will take a look at the latest beta release of Mandriva 2007 Beta.

Installation

Installation was quite simple even for a new user of Linux. The setup steps were few and no real complicated questions were there to be answered. The only problem that is quite common is how to partition the hard disk, but besides that everything was straight forward.

Depending on what you with your Linux system, you can choose the type of install you want, whether it be a workstation, a server or a development platform, you can choose what you want and those packages will install. You also have the ability to select individual packages as well so you can customize the installation of Mandriva.

There is a nifty option to let you copy the DVD to your hard drive and it will continue installation normally.

Full Story.
