Fabrice Facorat: Previous Mandriva versions were using an icon featuring the mandriva logo and the text for menu. Now finally, with the 2008.1 Spring, the menu icon will keep a small size even when increasing kicker height.

MDV

Frederic Crozat: No, Michael, Mandriva Linux is NOT a purely "KDE distribution" and it hasn't been for the last 7 years! It might have been 8 or 9 years ago, when it was originally created, but it is no longer the case for more than half a decade now.

Mandriva 2008.1 looks pretty good

linsec.ca: As usual, I take a day or two when a new Mandriva version is in RC status to install and play around with it. Every release since I’ve had the Libretto, there is always something that needs to be tweaked or that just doesn’t work out quite right.

A quick view of Mandriva 2008 Spring RC1 GNOME

Filed under
MDV

beranger.org: When I see the default KDE layout (with the horrendous 'Menu' button), I wonder how many years would take to Mandriva to figure out a better default. A default is supposed to be studied as "the preferred option" or as "a reasonably good compromise" for as much as possible people from the intended targeted group.

URPMI + RPM5 = True

MDV

Per Øyvind Karlsen: I've just finished porting urpmi (and rpmtools) to rpm 5.0, making it the first dependency solver supporting rpm 5.0! There seems to be less regressions with rpm5 currently, this was surprising considering it being a quite recent major release.

colin.guthr.ie: I've been putting a fair amount of time into getting PulseAudio integrated cleanly on Mandriva of late and it's going pretty well. I've now landed Compiz 0.7.0 into Cooker after enabling XCB in our libx11 package last week.

Did Red Hat’s CTO Walk – Or Was He Pushed?

He went on to say that some within Red Hat speculate that tensions between Stevens and Paul Cormier, Red Hat’s president of products and technologies, might be responsible, although there doesn’t appear to have been any current argument between the two. Cormier will take over Stevens’ duties until a replacement is found. Vaughan-Nichols also said that others at Red Hat had opined that Stevens might’ve left because he’d risen as high as he could within the company and with no new advancement opportunities open to him, he’d decided to move on. If this was the case, why did he leave so abruptly? Stevens had been at Red Hat for nearly ten years. If he was leaving merely because “I’ve done all I can here and it’s time to seek my fortune elsewhere,” we’d expect him to work out some kind of notice and stay on the job long enough for Red Hat to find a suitable replacement. Turning in a resignation that’s effective immediately is not the ideal way to walk out the door for the last time. It smells of burning bridges. Read more
