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.

Peppermint 7 Released

Peppermint 7 launched a few days ago. Peppermint is a lightweight Ubuntu-based Linux distribution with an emphasis on speed and simplicity. Although the name is similar to Linux Mint, the projects aren't directly related. Peppermint originally was envisioned as a "spicier" alternative to Mint—whatever that means! Many distros come with a wide assortment of feature-rich applications, and that's great for power users who need those apps. But older machines can struggle to cope with those demanding distros. Peppermint solves the problem by offering a carefully curated suite of web apps that perform tasks traditionally handled by native apps. It's an approach that will be familiar to any Chromebook users reading this article. Read more
