Posted on: 03/03/2005 05:38 AM

Mandrakelinux 10.2 for x86-64 Beta 1 has been released

Release notes

* First public beta.
* Merged with 10.2 for i586 as of 2005/02/25.
* KDE 3.3.2 packages are built with -fvisibility=hidden -fvisibility-inlines-hidden. This reduces code size and also improves performance of the runtime.
* A major new feature of Mandrakelinux 10.2 for x86-64 is that you can install a great amount of 32-bit development packages alongside with 64-bit equivalents, without any conflict. e.g. you can rebuild a 32-bit Evolution 2.0.4 on your x86-64 without chroot and without messing with existing 64-bit development libraries and headers. This is achieved in a very simple way:

linux32 rpm --rebuild evolution-2.0.4-2mdk.src.rpm

It just works!
* NDISwrapper 1.0 now includes support for x86-64.

A DVD Beta with additional software components such as nVidia/ATI graphic cards drivers, Flash Player, Blackdown.org Java VM is also available to Club Members.
