Mandriva, Mandrake, Lycoris A few months ago we wrote a full review of the Lycoris Desktop/LX operating system, but many releases happened since then and some things have changed. The Lycoris folks sent us the latest official version (+ online patches), we tested it, and here is what we think about it.

RE: The Xft Hack..

It is not the XFT hack that it is needed on Lycoris. It is simply a misconfiguration of either Freetype or xft. No hacks needed, it is just that the "collision" system of the renderer does not work as well as in other distros. This is a bug, no hacks needed, just a fix.
