XFCE One, a xfce live CD that based on Mandriva has been released

"The Mandriva community is proud to offer another XFCE edition to the users. This edition is not a Mandriva product (so do not expect any kind of support directly from Mandriva), but has been completed with a great cooperation between the company and the community.

We tried our best to provide the experience possible using XFCE Live but so far some issues still stand. We do not consider those issues are very blocking ones, but we rather mention them here so you can know what to do in case you would encounter those problems.

This edition contains bug fixes as available on the mirrors at the 23th of October, which should solve some installations and usage issues, but we strongly recommend to install the next updates while you have installed on the disk the XFCE desktop.

If you encounter any xfce-specific problem, please report it in the Mandriva Bug tracking system."

Mandriva: Virtual Users/Domains With Postfix/Courier/MySQL/SquirrelMail (Mandriva 2009.0)
2008-10-23 18:07:42 Source: Falko Timme [ Print | 0 Comment(s) ]

Howtoforge published a guide about setting up virtual users/domains with Postfix/Courier/MySQL/SquirrelMail under Mandriva 2009.0

"This document describes how to install a Postfix mail server that is based on virtual users and domains, i.e. users and domains that are in a MySQL database. I will also demonstrate the installation and configuration of Courier (Courier-POP3, Courier-IMAP), so that Courier can authenticate against the same MySQL database used by Postfix. The resulting Postfix server is capable of SMTP-AUTH and TLS and quota. Passwords are stored in encrypted form in the database. In addition to that, this tutorial covers the installation of Amavisd, SpamAssassin and ClamAV so that emails will be scanned for spam and viruses. I will also show how to install SquirrelMail as a webmail interface so that users can read and send emails and change their passwords."
