Mandriva Linux 2009 is released


Recommended Posts

Many of these annoyences are considered major new features by the kde devs



Well said :thumbs:


I don't know if you are using 3.5.10 on 2009, but if you aren't then do give it a try, I can't recommend it highly enough. You move from a KDE4 system where everything you want to work doesn't (whilst everything you don't want to work does) to a KDE3 system where everything works full stop.


During the whole development cycle of 2009 I have used KDE4, this has led me to so much frustration that I ended up hardly using 2009 at all, I preferred to use 2008.1 or Opensuse (both of which have 3.5.9 on). From the day I installed task-kde3, 2009 has gone back to being my default boot choice once again.


KDE4.0 was alpha software. KDE4.1 is beta. They have not released a working version yet in my opinion and they shouldn't foist their unfinished products on the public. Even that simple statement leaves out the argument that the whole background philosophy behind 4 is flawed which I think is the point that you are making.

When will the repo mirrors update to 2009? With easy urpmi I'm seeing 2008.1 and cooker only.

You will have to use this: easyurpmi, until one of our admins updates mandrivausers.org/easyurpmi. :)


Edit: mandrivausers.org/easyurpmi is now up to date.


Thanks paul!

How to use Mandriva 2009 urpmi package manager?I browsing internet http://easyurpmi.zarb.org/ to install package. Click to official medias and add PLF media If you do not want to or cannot use the automatic set-up buttons above, you can run the following commands manually as root:


urpmi.addmedia --distrib --mirrorlist '$MIRRORLIST'

urpmi.addmedia --distrib --mirrorlist 'http://plf.zarb.org/mirrors/$RELEASE.$ARCH.list'

urpmi --auto-select
