Mandrake Cooker July-18 Released
2002-07-19 Mandriva, Mandrake, Lycoris 7 Comments
I searched http://ftp.sunet.se and sunsite.uio.no (Mandrake’s primary mirrors) for ISOs and, unless they’re well-hidden, they aren’t there. There are ISOs for the June 6 snapshot, but not for July 18. No mention of them on distrowatch.com or linuxiso.org either … if you weren’t referring to ISOs, I’m not sure I understand this post, since the Mandrake Cooker is on-going and open for download at all times, with packages coming and going (each broken in new and interesting ways) all the time …
Anyway, I also checked the Mandrake forums and didn’t see anything about a new snapshot. If there is no snapshot, I’m not sure I understand what your post means (again, since the Cooker is always open and constantly changing). 🙂
No, I was not reffering to ISOs.
After the great news from yesterday, Mandrake today released yet another version of Mandrake Cooker, the unstable version of Mandrake. It has been released on the FTP servers around the world with many fixes and new packages. If you have the July-18th version installed you may want to upgrade. Please note that this version is not production level quality, but it is intended for testing purpose only.
Read news on OSnews, even if there are no news, we make them! Thanks for reading! OsNews, your news site.
BTW, first beta versions of Cooker (i.e. the distro which will become Mandrake 9) will be made soon. With iso’s etc. Mandrake 9 will be released early or mid September, as everybody can read in the Cooker mailing list archive. Andreas.
Quit whining and being sarcastic Andreas. If you do, let us know your email address so we can discuss your problem one-to-one. I recommend you read this before you even think comment here again:
Come on, Eugenia, don’t be so serious! I thought Andreas’ post was funny and I had a good laugh. Why become upset?
seeing as it would be plenty nice to have KDE3.1 in there, let’s just check the release plan:
Wednesday October 16th, 2002: Decision about 3.1 final
This makes no sense, just like their 8.2 release with was out shortly before KDE3.0 was released.
