Mandriva 2008.0 rocks

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 76.181.205.63] on October 13, 2007 04:44 AM
I had alot of trouble with Mandriva 2008. The release notes on the CD are for the 2007.1 Spring version, not 2008. The scripts to connect with the club, and to register as a club member, are broken, resulting in scripting errors. Submitting my hardware report opened a gigantic (and misspelled) "Succes!" message that filled the entire screen and would not let me continue the installation. Thankfully, after doing the only thing that worked - a hard reboot, it seemed to set itself up ok. Adding repos was easy, but many of the programs themself are broken. I had hoped for so much from this distro.
