    I don't want anything to do directly with Mandriva after they changed their name and fired Duval. PCLinuxOS 2007 is very good though

    Well, the way I see it is this - they have made some significant corporate linux inroads in the last few years (ie. 250,000 linux desktops in the french govt. etc...) and as such are a company worth supporting.

    I also donate to other projects when I get the chance though.

    Mandriva 2008 does seem to be good though, it only took me a couple of minutes to fix the problem with wireless access - and that was with a usb wireless dongle that I've failed to get running on every linux OS I have tried it on.

    However, the do seem to have messed up the Cedega install - not including the actual cededga engine, so it doesn't work...

    I get a really good adsl service through these guys, http://www.ukfsn.org/ they donate to free software projects on my behalf.

    Well the Ubuntu upgrade on the laptop worked flawlessly, as usual. no messing about hunting down drivers or crawling the internet for all the 'extra' apps that windows needs to function like a proper operating system ! I'll be upgrading my school workstation tomorrow. Just wish the rest of the school machines were this easy !

    I have no graphics. The nvidia drivers in the restricted repo do not support my GeForce 4000 TI. Off to Nvidia.com I go :P

    I did fresh install of school workstation - no probs.
    Now I find a problem with an upgrade to my home workstation, evms is broken (mirrored raid), but works when I revert to earlier kernel (or boots if I disable evms
    https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...ms/+bug/115616
    https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...22/+bug/141435

    Just a headsup for anyone running evms on servers and considering a gutsy upgrade.
