Frederik's Blog: This week-end, I tested Mandriva Cooker 2008.1 KDE. The procedure was the same as last week: a default KDE network installation via my local FTP mirror (only main) in a Virtualbox virtual machine. Here are the issues I noticed. I submitted the most important ones to Bugzilla.
reddevil62-techhead.blogspot: I've probably tried every one of the top 20 distros in the Distrowatch rankings – and a good few outside it - and I have to admit that few have impressed or surprised me as much as Mandriva 2008 Flash.
The second pre-release of Mandriva Linux 2008 Spring is here. This pre-release brings a near-final snapshot of KDE 4.0 (final 4.0 packages are currently being uploaded to the Cooker repositories), new NVIDIA and ATI drivers, the chance to test the experimental nouveau open source driver for NVIDIA cards, kernel 2.6.24rc7, and more.
Frederik's Blog: This week-end, I installed Mandriva Cooker in a Virtualbox virtual machine. I did a default GNOME installation from my local Cooker mirror. Here's a quick summary of the problems I found:
Fabrice Facorat: Lately there were many things in Mandriva Cooker. So here just a quick summary : GNOME 2.21.4, PulseAudio everywhere, and New ATI/AMD driver 8.443.1 and Nvidia driver 169.07.
checkerap.com: It’s been three months now, since I started using Mandriva 2008 at work. Three months ago, by the time I came into the company, we received laptops and some of us decided to use Linux. I used Linux at home so this was nice. Everyone chosed a distro he was used to. I chosed Mandriva 2008.
junauza.blogspot: I have tried and tested almost all major Linux distros but not yet Mandriva. Fortunately, I had a not-so-busy weekend so I finally had my hands on Mandriva 2008.
weblog.infoworld.com: A bootable 4 GB Flash Drive containing a portable version of Mandriva Linux 2008 is now available from Mandriva for 79 EUR ($89) and from Amazon for $94. The general idea is that you can take this little memory stick with you and be able to run Linux from it, do Internet and Office tasks with Firefox, Thunderbird, and OpenOffice, and save your files to the free space on the drive.
blogbeebe: Mandriva Alpha 1 was released today. So I downloaded the ISO onto europa and booted 'er up. Mandriva Spring 2008 fired up without any issues on this hardware. Overall it's quite usable and stable for an alpha.
adamw: The first alpha of 2008 Spring is out, with the latest KDE, GNOME, kernel and lots of other fun stuff. It’s also unreasonably stable for a first alpha.
