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. (Thanks to everybody who submitted this)

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".

In Pardus Linux, there's a "System" group of icons in Kconfig which includes pardus-provided tools, and it just works...

It works but uses kdelibs. If you use GNOME or awesome it sucks.
