While I now use openSUSE, I’ll always have something for Mandrake/Mandriva because it’s the first distro I ever installed on my computer. What most made me feel comfortable installing it was the attractive and fast installer (Mandriva 2006). I had trouble learning how to use the urmpi/package management interface, but mostly because I was more of a newbie back then. After trying their 2007 liveCD I’ve seen that it’s greatly improved. I absolutely love the control center application and think it’s one of its strongest points.
What I don’t like about Mandriva is the whole club thing. Don’t get me wrong, I have no qualms against supporting what I think is a good product, but there just don’t seem to be too many benefits for such a high price.
Other than that, I like Mandriva and continue to follow up on their progress along with other distros derived from it like PCLinuxOS.
After trying to get Suse 10.2 to work which it fails to do due to NvIDIA card. I went back to have a look at Mandrivia One 2007 Gnome Metisse.
It doesn’t mind the video card like Suse.
Which I assume should install it appears to want to work but dont have any instructions anywhere.
I set up the hard drive using partition magic and it appears you open the terminal if I recall correct to install and then comes up with error extracting files saying no space avaliable when it has about 12 gigs and 8 gigs on another partition plus a swap file.
Does the swap file have to be in any particular place as I am dual booting with Win Xp.?
Anyone point me to a installation page. Thanks

I too downloaded that same disk. Don’t use it. Better to use this one:
(MCNlive – you can install it too)
which is based on mandriva, but will even run in ram. It is bullet proof though you might not be able to get the 3D stuff running. Everything else runs great. The Mandriva One 2007 Gnome distro was pretty buggy (there’s a kde version that works better – the 64 bit one was the one I used. Baring that get the Mandriva Live 2007.1 distro from the company. (ALSO they have a Pre-Release 2008 Release Chg 2 available at this site:
