  1. I don't think it will. KDE 3.5.10 will be though.
  2. http://wiki.mandriva.com/en/2009.0_Develop...ng_and_delivery
  3. In Nov 2006 Sun opensourced the parts of Java which was in its property that's OpenJDK. After this the Java community started to rewrite the missing parts. A year ago Sun and RedHat created the IcedTea project which was aimed to create a GPLv2 only OpenJDK which passes the TCK test created by Sun. RedHat announced on the last RedHat summit conference that it happened. So from now on Java = OpenJDK. Meanwhile work hasn't stopped. IcedTea7 is on the way which will be the same as OpenJDK7 on the source level. This means to me that OpenJDK = stable version and IcedTea = development version.
  4. The latest stable java is Java 1.6 update 7 AFAIK. What you downloaded must be a developer version.
  5. Mandriva holds install parties whenever a new release is out. Although burning CDs have a cost companies usually provide promotion stuff for free. I don't know who did you ask to rpovide those CDs for you but AFAIK Mandriva does give install party CDs for free as well as stickers. Anyway I'm not a Mandriva official. None of us are here. You better ask Adam.
  6. A maintenance release for both branches of Firefox has been released. See the announcements: and 3.0.1 Updating is strongly encouraged as both of these releases fix some critical vulnerabilities.
  7. KDE 4.1 RC1 has been released yesterday - without big announcement as this is still a development release. The release of KDE 4.1 is planned for July 29th. As usual there are packages for openSUSE 11.0, 10.3 and Factory as well as a Live-CD available. Thanks to Helio Castro Mandriva 2008 Spring packages are also available.
  8. I know it's not exactly what you're looking for but maybe this helps a bit: http://cue.yellowmagic.info/softwares/separate.html
  9. GIMP 2.6 will probably out in August. Gimpusers.com wrote an article about the most important new features.
  10. Mandriva Linux 2009 Alpha 2 was released. Read the announcement here. Also a new edition of the Mandriva Community newsletter was released. Number 129. You can read it here.
  11. I think you should report it in the Bugzilla.
  12. AFAIK the new way of adding plf repos in easyurpmi works only on Mandriva 2008 Spring (and later). So for Mandy 2007 you need to switch back to the old interface as written there.
  13. There is a package called xfwm4-themes. If it's not what you're looking for then look for them on the web http://xfce-look.org/ looks like a good place to start.
  14. The first one worked for me. I watched the trailer. No issues. On the second page I clicked on Super trailer right on that page. The video seemingly started to play. I could see a "The following preview is..." screen to appear but then a white block appeared and the trailer didn't play. However when I clicked on "Watch more Expelled trailers" I could watch all the trailers. These two are flash videos so you should check your installation of the Flash plugin. Btw I have Opera 9.51 from the Mandriva rpm package which I downloaded from opera.com. The last link didn't work for me either like almost all of the trailers on apple.com. I can't watch them with Firefox either. It's likely a codec issue for me.
  15. What trailer did you try to watch? Which distro arte you using? And what version?
  16. You can't use Metisse with XGL orAIGLX.
  17. Nobody can give you any solution without giving some more info. What version of Mandriva are you using? If you are using the Free edition then I think you need to install the video card driver. What's your video card ? Try starting the games in command line and copy the error messages they give here.
  18. That's a problem with Metisse. While you are using it you won't have those options in that panel AFAIK. So you either don't use Metisse or you do and get used to shutdown the machine at KDM.
  19. I'm sure there is. If you know how to program in C. :)
  20. MCC is a GTK app if that helps.
  21. The Wine team is proud to announce that Wine 1.0 is now available. This is the first stable release of Wine after 15 years of development and beta testing. Many thanks to everybody who helped us along that long road! While compatibility is not perfect yet, thousands of applications have been reported to work very well. Check http://appdb.winehq.org to see the details for your favorite applications. The source is available now. Binary packages are in the process of being built, and will appear soon at their respective download locations.
  22. I guess that's enough for a record. What was the old record?

    Opera 9.5

    Or just pres Ctrl+f. From other posts I read the speed of Opera depends on which widget set it is using. Qt3 or Qt4. If it's true what people say then the Qt4 version is faster and is using less resources. When I tried Opera I was just curious. In earlier versions it had problems with playing Flash and videos. In this version it's all working. At least for now. The one thing I like with Opera is that when Flash player crashes the browser doesn't crash with it unlike with my Firefox. It's very annoying.

    Opera 9.5

    Also there is a Mandriva package in the opera.com site. It couldn't be easier.
