Hardware
MDV

mandriva.com: Lately it's hard to avoid the buzz about netbooks - the small, cheap laptop systems that were popularized by the Asus Eee PC (which, of course, Mandriva Linux 2008 Spring supports very well). Many in the community have asked if Mandriva is going to get directly involved in this market. Well, the answer is yes!

PCLinuxOS to Mandriva Spring 2008.1

Filed under
MDV

datalude.com/blog: I posted an entry here a month or so ago about my switch from Linux Mint to PCLinuxOS. There was good, bad, and definitely very ugly. In the many comments on that article, someone suggested that I should try Mandriva. So I did.

Should Mandriva 2009 Use KDE Kickoff Menu

Filed under
MDV

ruminationsonthedigitalrealm.org: Mandriva 2009.0 installs KDE4 with the classical KDE menu, a decision I can only applaud. It isn’t decided yet whether this decision will stand until the final version. The Mandriva Community seems to be running into a tie, as the votes for either the new Kickoff menu or the Classical menu are virtually equal.

Filed under
MDV

blogbeebe.blogspot: Mandriva 2009 Alpha 2 hit the wires yesterday for both the KDE and Gnome desktops. As usual I did the download/ISO burn/boot three-step to check out the KDE version. And as usual, in spite of glowing reviews it had enough rough edges to constantly remind me this is an alpha release.

Mandriva Corporate Desktop (what about it?)

Filed under
MDV

beranger.org: There was a recent discussion on the French Mandriva forum, about a possible free LTS version of Mandriva. Someone mentioned the Corporate Desktop and Corporate Server line — a paying one, à la RHEL and SLED/SLES. The only problem is that Mandriva Corporate Desktop is dead. It was killed using a silencer though.

  • LinuxFest NorthWest 2015, ownCloud 8 for stable Fedora / EPEL
    The Fedora booth was extra fun this year. As well as the OLPC XO systems we usually have there (which always do a great job of attracting attention), Brian Monroe set up a whole music recording system running out of a Fedora laptop, with a couple of guitars, bass, keyboard, and even a little all-in-one electronic drum…thing. He had multitrack recording via Ardour and guitar effects from Guitarix. This was a great way to show off the capabilities of Fedora Jam, and was very popular all weekend – sometimes it seemed like every third person who came by was ready to crank out a few guitar chords, and we had several bass players and drummers too. I spent a lot of time away from the booth, but even when I was there we had pretty much a full band going quite often.
