Mandriva, Mandrake, Lycoris "Though delayed for a while and later to market than most Mandriva fans would probably prefer, the new Mandriva Linux 2007 PowerPack Edition is finally here, nearly a year after the previous release. 2007 is typical Mandriva through and through: attractively themed in KDE, easy to install without skipping the technical details, a little bug-ridden here and there, and full of new and interesting software technologies. This release does have its own identity, though; not only has the standard theme been redesigned for the first time in several years, but this is the first Mandriva release to include a legal DVD movie player."

Concerning upgrade and xorg issue, it's mostly due to the Xorg 7.1, i.e modular xorg. 2 things have change at the same time :
1. xorg has been splitted in many differents packages
2. X binary change from /usr/X11R6/bin to /usr/bin and fonts moved from /usr/lib/X11R6/fonts to /usr/share/fonts.

This means that when you are doing an upgrade, some application needs to have their config files modified ( kdm/gdm, fontconfig ) because they will look for X binary or fonts in the wrong location.


I was thinking about something concerning the One issue. Could this be related to the fact as One is on a CD, permissions where defaulted to read-only ?
