Mandriva, Mandrake, Lycoris Mandriva has announced the launch of the final version of Mandriva Linux 2009 Spring (codename Pauillac). This new version comes with a host of improvements and changes, as always. Fun fact: this is the first release reported to us by Anne Nicolas instead of Adam Williamson. For those that keep score.

Problems

I can boot from the KDE4-CD (2009.1, checked MD5 and SHA1), but Mandriva fails to detect my graphics card and stays at a black screen forever after the services started.

Any idea?

Did you have a look at the erratas ?

for example:

IMHO you are affected by the following bug :
https://qa.mandriva.com/show_bug.cgi?id=49503

Try the workaround as described in the bug report :
CTRL+ALT+F1
log as root ( login = root )
service dm restart

and normally you should be ok.
