Posted on: 06/25/2006 11:07 AM
The first alpha version of Mandriva Linux 2007 is available
This Alpha is mainly available via two means. First via the public FTP and HTTP site mirroring the Mandriva Linux repository. Check the current development mirrors at CookerMirrors, the 2007 alpha tree is in /devel/2007.0/. Second, the preferred way, via the provided One CDs (installable live CDs). You will find these live CDs in the same mirrors as the cooker one, in the /devel/iso/2007.0/ section.Download for i586Download for x86_64
In live mode the keyboard may no be correctly initialised to your language, type setxkbmap [your locale] to fix it.
When you reboot or halt, the CD may not be correctly ejected.
You may need to launch update-menus to have the menu items complete (we are in the middle of the migration to full XDG menus)
Once installed, inserting any kind of media such as CDs or USB keys makes the following message pop-up: "Cannot mount volume"
The menu invest-chart is not working on the GNOME x86_64 version
python-gtk2 applications might fail to start at all
