      Mandriva Official Documentation

      Official documentation for extant versions of Mandriva can be found at doc.mandriva.com.   Documentation for the latest release may take some time to appear there. You can install all the manuals from the main repository if you have Mandriva installed - files are prefixed mandriva-doc.

      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

Mageia and Mandriva package management systems

Recommended Posts

I have not yet tried Mageia, but am wondering about any differences between the Mageia and Mandriva package management systems? Does Mageia use urpmi? Do the commands at easyurpmi.zarb.org work with Mageia? Does Mageia have plf package repositories? Are there as many different packages for Mageia as there are for Mandriva?

Mageia is a fork of Mandriva and so uses the traditional Mandriva package management systems, such as urpmi and rpmdrake. Most of the dev's who maintained those systems for Mandriva now contribute to Mageia.

 

Do the commands at easyurpmi.zarb.org work with Mageia?

Not so far as I know.

 

Does Mageia have plf package repositories?

No. Instead they have official "tainted" repo's which include most of what was in PLF.

 

Are there as many different packages for Mageia as there are for Mandriva?

Not yet, but more are being added as the number of packagers increases.
