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.

Member since:

on my machine almost everything worked except broadcom (I have tried with the native driver and it did work for a while before it dropped the connection).
Skype didn't work, seems to be missing some qt libraries.
Google earth, guessing the same libraries.

anything else worked great, the LinDVD player I think is bad because you can only change the region 5? times, and I do have some foreign moves with a diffrent region.
But this is easly fixed with vlc.

I still think it's a great distro worth paying for.

btw. I have a HP pavillion dvXXXX something laptop. amd x64
