Show off your Desktop - October 2008

Recommended Posts

I just assumed it was from a computer game!
That's the HDR effect (funny - this image is in the wikipedia HDR entry!). A lot of newer video games use this effect for lighting and rendering of scenes.

Here's my first 64-bit install. I have installed it using the 'free-2009-dual-arch' CD and it took me over 7 hours Tuesday to install this system (the mirrors where still very busy), but that was still faster than d/ling the 4.3GB DVD with my connection. :)

 

This is also the first time I've used Gnome with Mandriva, but that was not an issue for me as I've always used Gnome with Debian.

Way to go Greg! I'm also 64 bit in Mandriva, and I like it loads :)

 

Oh, and nice calming desktop too ;)

Why not just get Mandriva One, install from that, then add modify repo's and install programs after the fact? It should would have saved several hours. Edited by tyme

Because I've never used the 'free-2009-dual-arch' CD, and I thought I could use the experience to help others. :D

Perhaps because One is 32bit only?

If you want 64bit it's done with install disks not live disks.

I used Mandriva 2008.1, then upgraded to Mandriva 2009.0 using the repos :) but that's another thread rather than "Show off your Desktop". ;)

 

And 64 bit can be done with Mandriva One.

Not to argue but if that's possible please tell us how.

 

As far as I know One installs a 32bit system and the only way to get a 64bit install is to reinstall, you can't just do an upgrade.

At least, I'm pretty sure I did it :unsure:

 

I can't find the ISO to see which one I downloaded.

There's no 64-bit One, as the first reply said. Only Free and Powerpack have 64-bit implementations.

I was also under the impression that there was a 64-bit One. Sorry! :)

No need to be sorry, I learn something knew every day but seeing that the human brain has a finite capacity, at the end of the week I pick one of the seven as the best and discard the rest.

 

Hopefully this will keep my wet hard drive from going into total lockup. :thumbs:
