OpenMandriva Lx 2014.0 RC1 released

Written by rugyada Saturday, 19 April 2014 00:01


OpenMandriva Lx 2014 RC1 is here!
The announcement at OpenMandriva Blog:

Phosphorous burns very hot and very fast and is the perfect name for our latest RC1 release of OpenMandriva Lx.

This release candidate has been optimised for boot speed and you will find our latest kernel release that will ensure that you will be able to interact seamlessly with the new KDE-4.12.4 that has been included.  The new kernel has the very latest scheduler as well as featuring UKSM to which one of our team have been contributing packages. UKSM  is a kernel memory management tool which aims to reduce duplicate data in system memory and as a result increase the kernel responsiveness. Of particular note are some patches that partially correct a misinterpretation of the USB standard. This will improve device compatibility and ensure that device reawake properly after suspend or hibernate.

Introduced into this release is another major improvement, that is,  support for UEFI booting although in it’s infancy we hope that in supporting this functionality we will allow more people to use our desktop system.

OpenMandriva Lx 2013.0 RC2 released

Written by rugyada Saturday, 16 November 2013 07:16


Here comes OpenMandriva Lx 2013.0 RC2!
The announcement at OpenMandriva Blog:

And here it comes! A week after RC1, OpenMandriva 2013.0 Lx RC2 is out on schedule!

It’s been mostly bugfixing and polishing at this stage. Nothing much different from RC1. You’ll notice, though, that we’ve only got one launcher for RC2, KickOff. If you want SimpleWelcome, you can install rosa-launcher, if you want Homerun, you can install homerun and if you want Lancelot, you can install plasma-applet-lancelot.

In RC2 we completed the artwork integration. It includes fixing of the plymouth theme, updated GRUB, ksplash, user avatars, and got a brand new screensaver.

Additionally, following the results of the wallpaper contest, “The Flavour of Freedom”, we’ve included the winners of the contest into 2013.0, which you will be able to find if you want to change your wallpaper!

Last Minute Testing
Please pay special attention to:

- USB booting, which has always been a weak area for us (but has become much better!)
- Control Centre – Are you having major difficulties with it?

We’ve got GA coming in approximately a week – it’s about to come knocking on the door! If you find any bugs, please make sure to report them on our issue tracker.
