With the newest release, and all the hype of the merger with Conectiva and Lycoris, I felt it was time to take another look at Mandriva. Mandriva has delivered a fabulous, bleeding edge product in it's latest release. Unfortunately as has been the case with most Mandriva .0 releases the product is unstable and needing attention.

As we continue our coverage of the Mandriva 2006 development cycle, this time we test the upgrade procedure. In addition we also test the newer "isos on the disk" install method. Introduced last release (10.2/2005) this newest install feature is quite exciting. It didn't function in one of the first betas, but does it work this time? And how did the upgrade go? Did all my data get lost? Am I plagued with crashes and lost configurations? And was anything new to behold?

Beta 2 hit the mirrors about 24 hours ago and so what's new? The most notable and easily noticed is the new theme. The new professional theme runs throughout the installer and installed Mandriva system. It's even in the kdm login screen as well as the kde and gnome splash screens. It's a wonderfully classy theme featuring a nice tasteful penguin on an attractive blue backdrop. Kudos, kudos Mandriva. Now that's what I'm talking about! Finally they listened to the masses and I think they've just about got it right.

The last time we built the Secure Web Server it was quite a success. But it was done on version 10.0 of our beloved OS and it's time for a fresh look at what we can do for web serving. The 2.6 kernel is at a level now that most commercial firms have either already converted or are in the process. What this means for us is even tighter security with more and better hardware support in the kernel.
