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.

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

MDV

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

Filed under
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.

Filed under
MDV

beranger.org: You may never know with Mandriva, but I feel there is a good chance to have a Mandriva 2008.1 "One" XFCE flavor. There is a Beta that doesn't look that bad!

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.

Can or Can’t?

What I love about open source is that it’s a “can” world by default. You can do anything you think needs doing and nobody will tell you that you can’t. (They may not take your patch but they won’t tell you that you can’t create it!) It’s often easier to define things by what they are not or what we can’t do. And the danger of that is you create a culture of “can’t”. Any one who has raised kids or animals knows this. “No, don’t jump.” You can’t jump on people. “No, off the sofa.” You can’t be on the furniture. “No, don’t lick!” You can’t slobber on me. And hopefully when you realize it, you can fix it. “You can have this stuffed animal (instead of my favorite shoe). Good dog!” Read more
