Mandriva 2010 Spring (2010.1) Beta

Filed under
MDV

I've just gotten far enough along with the Mandriva 2010.1 Beta release to write about it, so why not fill the time with something interesting, and perhaps something to compare the Ubuntu Beta to?

The good news about this Mandriva pre-release is that it is the first in this series to include Mandriva One LiveCD images, as well as the full DVD distribution. The bad news is that I have found it to be a bit finicky on my systems. The LiveCD boots and installs just fine on my Fujitsu S6510, with a built-in CD/DVD drive, and on my desktop Dual Atom mini-server. It will not boot, however, on either of my HP laptops (dv2-1010ez and dm1-1020ez) using an external USB CD/DVD drive, and neither will the install DVD. I suspect it doesn't like that drive.
