      Forum software upgrade   10/29/17

      So you may have noticed the forum software has upgraded !!!
      A few things that have changed. We no longer have community blogs (was never really used) We no longer have a portal page.
      We can discuss this, and decide whether it is needed (It costs money) See this thread: Here

They are 1.6GB ISO's, so I think they are DVD images.

These are links to Mandriva 2011 DVD ISO's. And as I just said, they are 1.6GB ISO which means they are DVD and not CD. So to be clear, no you cannot burn a CD image. You can burn a DVD only. And if your machine doesn't support DVD, then I think you're out of luck as there does not seem to be CD images.

There is a way to create a boot CD and install from the network or from a local mirror downloaded to the hard drive. See wiki below for more info. I personally have not tried this method.

Here is one mirror where you can get the boot.iso file to burn to CD.

Anyone know where the repos I need to add can be found?

 

I know this is posted somewhere, but can't seem to find it so I'll ask here, what do I have to do to upgrade if I already have Mandy 2010.2 installed? I just want to upgrade what I have, not replace it.

 

Thanks

What do you mean by 'upgrade what you have and not replace it' ? By definition an upgrade is to replace what you have already. If what you mean is to update what you have, you can do that by typing in console.
urpmi --auto-update -v

or update via the software centre.

My oh so quick first impressions of Mandriva 2011.

 

Now that I've found out Simple Welcome can be disabled, I continued with my tour of Mandriva 2011. I like it a lot. It's definitely faster than 2010, also a lot smoother and polished looking.

 

I had my doubts about them replacing Amarok with Clementine, but so far no problems, it works.

 

The default login screen is useless if you hide usernames from it, no way for you to login graphically.

 

Dolphin works great. Much better than before. It feels a lot snappier and faster.

 

Configure your desktop is cluttered. Surely some of the options could have been amalgamated under one icon. Or even tabbed pages. The problem to me is they have gotten rid of the Advanced tab and thrown everything onto the one screen. If I have to search for the simplest of things, heaven help the new user. Plus, why have they still got System Administration tools in Configure your desktop, they should be with the rest of the system admin tools in Configure your computer.

 

For some unknown reason some files in my home folder previously owned by me were now owned by root, not a problem though, a simple use of the chown command sorted that out.

 

I normally like to upgrade over the net. It wouldn't work, failed, despite me following their upgrade instructions to the letter. This was both graphically and via commandline. There were some critical packages it couldn't find to download. Strange that one. So I resorted to using the live dvd. I will have another attempt on my main machine to see if the problem is resolved.

 

All in all I'm going to remain a happy Mandriva and Mageia user.

 

I'm sure there's more changes for me to discover/check out. I'm looking forward to using the free 2GB online storage and comparing it to all the others I currently use. :)

 

Let the battle of the M & M's commence :lol2:

Is Mandriva 2011 a bad joke? I cannot believe that such a thing would be released into the public domain. Normally when software has a later release one assumes that it is an improvement. I am currently having to rebuild my 2010 from the original install disk to get running again. It is a good thing I have access to this Windows machine to get online.
