Mandriva, Mandrake, Lycoris It seems that the previous news about Mandriva SA being for sale have been more than simple rumors. Frederic Cuif* (incorrectly unaccented due to limitations in our CMS), active member of the French-speaking Mandriva User Group has summed up the various outcomes and proposed projects he found after contacting several key members of the company in order to gather information. The result of his investigation can be found on his blog, along with a detailed analysis of the Mandriva business model and the proposed outcomes, from a renewed interest in the distribution and the community from Linagora, potential buyer, to what could be the end of the Mandriva adventure if nothing is done.

No thanks, Kubuntu is already better than Madriva. I'd hate to see anything like drakconf in it.

Now I'm curious: what's wrong with drakconf?

That it exists at all? It bugs me tremendously that it's completely separate from the KDE system settings. I just don't see the point in drakconf's existence as a separate. And why is drakconf a GTK app anyway?

KDE system settings are related to KDE. You can configure everything about KDE there. In order to get drakconf, you've got to understand the difference between "the system" and "the desktop". Drakconf is about configuring "the system".
