OpenMandriva Lx 2013.0 final release is here!

OpenMandriva Lx 2013.0 reaches final release!
The announcement at OpenMandriva Blog:

The OpenMandriva Community is proud to announce our first release, OpenMandriva Lx 2013.0!

OpenMandriva Lx is an exciting free Desktop Operating System that aims to cater to and interest first time and advanced users alike. It has the breadth and depth of an advanced system but is designed to be simple and straightforward in use.

This release, OpenMandriva Lx 2013.0 is dedicated to the memory of Ron (Ronald van Pomeren), aka Arvi Pingus. Ron was one of the first contributors to OpenMandriva, dedicated, professional – and just a very good person and friend to many of us. We miss him...

OpenMandriva Lx 2013.0 RC2 released

Written by rugyada Saturday, 16 November 2013 07:16


Here comes OpenMandriva Lx 2013.0 RC2!
The announcement at OpenMandriva Blog:

And here it comes! A week after RC1, OpenMandriva 2013.0 Lx RC2 is out on schedule!

It’s been mostly bugfixing and polishing at this stage. Nothing much different from RC1. You’ll notice, though, that we’ve only got one launcher for RC2, KickOff. If you want SimpleWelcome, you can install rosa-launcher, if you want Homerun, you can install homerun and if you want Lancelot, you can install plasma-applet-lancelot.

In RC2 we completed the artwork integration. It includes fixing of the plymouth theme, updated GRUB, ksplash, user avatars, and got a brand new screensaver.

Additionally, following the results of the wallpaper contest, “The Flavour of Freedom”, we’ve included the winners of the contest into 2013.0, which you will be able to find if you want to change your wallpaper!

Last Minute Testing
Please pay special attention to:

- USB booting, which has always been a weak area for us (but has become much better!)
- Control Centre – Are you having major difficulties with it?

We’ve got GA coming in approximately a week – it’s about to come knocking on the door! If you find any bugs, please make sure to report them on our issue tracker.

OpenMandriva Lx 2013.0 RC1 released

Written by rugyada Saturday, 09 November 2013 15:18


OpenMandriva Lx 2013.0 RC1 release is out!
The announcement at OpenMandriva Blog

The OpenMandriva Association is glad to announce the release of OpenMandriva Lx 2013.0 RC1!

RC1 brings many bugfixes since our beta release. The kernel version has been updated to 3.11.6, with several new patches focused on performance (such as BFS, BFQ, and UKSM). We’ve also provided up-to-date and stable user-space libraries and drivers with high hardware compatibility.

RC1 uses KDE 4.11.2 as our desktop for this release, and still provides four launchers (Kickoff, SimpleWelcome, Lancelot, and Homerun) so that users can evaluate the best launcher for their needs and tell us which one they’d like to see as default, which will be chosen in time for RC2.

RC1 also includes the OpenMandriva Management Control Centre – a useful and intuitive tool to manage your system. You can use it to manage software, configure your video card, add or remove users from the system, and more!

We’ve fixed over 75 bugs since our beta release – help us add to the count by filing bugs whenever you see one!

According to schedule, RC2 is only about a week away from this release! We’re working fast to push out our final release soon, so please be sure to test and give us feedback about what can be done!

Join the fun!

OpenMandriva Lx Beta has been released

Written by rugyada Saturday, 19 October 2013 19:19


OpenMandriva Lx 2013.0 first beta release is out!
The announcement at OpenMandriva Blog

After months of bug fixing and stabilizing the Alpha, we are happy to announce the availability of OpenMandriva Lx’s first ever Beta.

We’ve put a lot of work into stabilizing the package base and building a solid base for future versions. After this release, work on the new ideas we’ve been collecting can start - people interested in following the development may want to watch Cooker.

We extend our thanks to all users who rigorously tested the Alphas and reported bugs.

Lx has undergone many changes since Alpha, and this release fixes many major bugs reported during Alpha’s testing. Most of the boot issues have been ironed out, and Beta is now more USB boot-friendly.

Lx Beta comes with KDE 4.11, with a focus on a clean and unified desktop. This release comes with a set of four (!) launchers - Lancelot, KickOff, SimpleWelcome and Homerun - for you to try and give feedback. Eventually we’ll settle for just one, the winner based on your feedback.

Installation has also changed. DrakX installer is no longer available. The bundled installer no longer prompts for the removal of unused hardware and language packages. virtual machines
