Mandriva, Mandrake, Lycoris Earlier this week, Mandriva released Mandriva Linux 2008.0, the latest version of their flagship Linux distribution. Mandriva was so kind as to provide me with a copy of Mandriva Linux 2008.0 PowerPack, the commercial version. Back when it was named Mandrake, it was my first ever Linux distribution (I bought a Linux magazine), so I have always had a special place for Mandriva. Read on for a review.

Well, I have a bcm43xx card laying around somewhere (USRobotics MaxG) for my old laptop (an Acer Travelmate). In the past, I never got it to work with ndiswrapper in Mandriva 2006, nor 2007.0, except for 5 seconds before dropping out again.

I'll give it a try and report here - but that will be for the weekend. It's good to see that about 10 people actually got it working.

the native driver basically sucked up until around kernel 2.6.20. it started being actually usable at that point.

i should mention that i personally have a bcm4312 in my laptop, and it's fine with bcm43xx in 2008.
