2008 one vs free [solved]

Recommended Posts

I downloaded the ONE edition to try what's new in the 2008.1 release. After the first boot an nvidia logo blinked and the desktop was.. WOW. The windows in kde were a bit different, double click made a window to maximise, 3d effs' etc. So i downloaded the FREE release too to change my 2008 to 2008.1. But the FREE version is almost the same as the old, except the login screen. How can i make the FREE release look like ONE? I mean to use 3d acceleration and so on.

You need to set up the media sources, including the non-free repo, and install the nvidia proprietary driver.

I can see now this won't be an easy one :D .

I tried to install the nvidia driver, but it missed some kernel source. I used uname to determine my kernel version and then urpmi to install it but it just didn't work. I think i give up and stick with my old Mandriva. Thanks for the tip Jim though.

You're making this more difficult than it is. :)

 

You can use easy-urpmi to set up your software sources (repositories). Here's the link: easyurpmi

 

Then go to 'Configure your computer' > Hardware > 'Browse and configure hardware' > Videocard > 'Run config tool' > select to use the proprietary module. It will do all the work for you.

you could have done it even easier by just configuring the graphical server in the control center ;) I believe that in spring sources are even set up automatically (not 100% though)
