My ideas for Mandriva 2010.0

Filed under
MDV

1 week ago, I submitted to http://ideas.mandriva.com/en/ my proposals/ideas for Mandriva 2010.0. In order to let people comment on them, I will post the list of my submissions. I was planning to add more, but unfortunately, I'm presently in holidays ( at La Baule ), and so don't have time to do this Smile.

So here are my proposals :

* UXA and KMS support in drakx11">UXA and KMS support in drakx11">UXA and KMS support in drakx11 : As Mandriva 2010.0 will support UXA ( for Intel graphics cards ) and eventually KMS, the goal is to allow to enable/disable them directly from drax11 UI.

* Add runlevel 3 boot menu entry in grub options menu : This would allow to boot Mandriva directly in text mode without having to edit the kernel options.

* UPnP support in drakfirewall/shorewall :

rest here

This has been part of their goal of having secure Thunderbolt support where users can authorize devices and/or restrict access to certain capabilities on a per-device basis, which is part of Red Hat's Bolt project and currently has UI elements for the GNOME desktop.

New Terminal App in Chome OS Hints at Upcoming Support for Linux Applications

According to a Reddit thread, a Chromebook user recently spotted a new Terminal app added to the app drawer when running on the latest Chrome OS Dev channel. Clicking the icon would apparently prompt the user to install the Terminal app, which requires about 200 MB of disk space. The installation prompt notes the fact that the Terminal app can be used to develop on your Chromebook. It also suggests that users will be able to run native apps and command-line tools seamlessly and securely. Considering the fact that Chrome OS is powered by the Linux kernel, this can only mean one thing. Read more
