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.

Latencey Problems - I Concur
by Majik Fox on Fri 20th Sep 2002 12:25 UTC

I was wondering if maybe it was a problem with my specific configuration as far as the latencey problem goes. I'm almost glad to know it's not just me, though. I have a Athlon XP running at 1533MHz with a Quantum Fireball HDD. It takes about three minutes for install/remove software to even give any indication that it is loading!

Also, the OS installer won't even start if my Promise Ultra33 card is plugged in (neither in vmware nor on my 'real' system).

I had much fewer problems with the initial release of DesktopLX.
