How stable is Mandriva 2008.1 spring RC1?

Recommended Posts

Hi folks!

 

I may or may not be back. Want to give a couple of distros a spin including Mandriva.

Should I try Mandriva 2008.1 spring RC1 or Mandriva 2008 (release earlier this year)?

How stable is Mandriva 2008.1 spring RC1?

Wait for 3 days from now and get RC2... it's worth to try it :)

 

Cheers

EDIT: The reason why I tell u to wait is because the update is about 600 MB.... I think it's worth to wait 3 days, isn't it?

I' m running RC1 One since its out, and it is stable on my laptop (Acer aspire 5315). Everything works just fine.

I have no other version of Mandriva on that Laptop.

Perfectly stable on my laptop as well, although I would never run a testing distro on its own, always dual boot with a stable version is my advice, but give it a go definitely.

 

As Luis said it is probably worth waiting for RC2 now if it is only 3 days away.

Thank for answering. It turns out my question was moot since both 2008.1 RC1 aand 2008 bombed.

But I'm typing this from 2008.1 RC2. Very nice - faster than 2006 and less buggy so far.

 

Btw, someone ought to go on the wiki,

 

http://wiki.mandriva.com/en/2008.1_RC_2

 

and add the locations of all the download site. It tooks me 9-10 hrs to download the DVD-free version

from GA tech. All I could figure out was carroll and gatech were in USA (i'm in Bay area - SF/SJ/O).

When I downloaded RC!, I didn't realized that I was downloading from Europe.

my hacky set of grep, cut and sed commands for generating the mirror list isn't that smart...:)
