Mandriva 2011 RC 1 Released, Almost

Filed under
MDV

Eugeni Dodonov announced the release of Mandriva 2011 RC1 earlier, but I'm still waiting for it to hit mirrors. He did actually said it was "coming," so his announcement could be considered a big ole tease. In fact, I hate it when a release is announced and we have to keep checking the mirrors for it to actually become available. But they do this every time.

Anyway, he said, "The images are built and are undergoing an internal testing right now, and unless any critical issues are discovered, they will be pushed to the mirrors in the coming hours!"

rest here




Re: Mandriva 2011 RC1

Yes, just checked the first-updated French mirrors, and they're still at beta 3.

Among the list of changes, I see they've finally incorporated the Mandriva Control Center into KDE's "System Settings".

They've got to do something to differentiate themselves from the free (and very good) release of Mageia1. The Mandriva forums are starting to look like a ghost town.

ghost town

Mandriva forum is still active. Mageia forum is dead as hell.

Migrating to Linux: Network and System Settings

Linux gives you a lot of control over network and system settings. On your desktop, Linux lets you tweak just about anything on the system. Most of these settings are exposed in plain text files under the /etc directory. Here I describe some of the most common settings you’ll use on your desktop Linux system. A lot of settings can be found in the Settings program, and the available options will vary by Linux distribution. Usually, you can change the background, tweak sound volume, connect to printers, set up displays, and more. While I won't talk about all of the settings here, you can certainly explore what's in there. Read more
