en18 MIB Mandriva International Backports is proud to present you the new version: MIB-LiveToFlash 3.5 now working also with 2010.2 One live ISOs

Starting from an .iso file, or a Mandriva One Live CD, you will be able to get a pendrive (starting from 4 Gb, better if 8Gb or more) equipped with Mandriva Linux system and therefore a product similar to Mandriva Flash, but totally for free.

You just follow a few simple steps, and you'll have a portable OS, which can save documents and personal data in a persistent /home so that they don't vanish when you'll close the session.

Also the /root partition is persistent, so you'll be able to intall your favorite software and to carry on it with you forever.

This software will use the first 4Gb as maximum, and in the remaining space will be automatically created an universal FAT32 data partition, reachable from other SO, such as Windows and MacOS.

The program has a friendly GUI, available in English, French and Italian language and it works not only for Mandriva 2010.2, but also for derived customized Mandriva.

it Il MIB Mandriva International Backports ha il piacere di presentarvi la nuova versione di:  MIB-LiveToFlash 3.5 adesso funzionante anche con le iso One di 2010.2

Partendo da un file .iso o da una Mandriva One Live CD, sarete in grado di ottenere una pendrive (a partire da 4Gb, meglio se di 8Gb di capacità) equipaggiata con Mandriva Linux e quindi un prodotto simile a Mandriva Flash, ma completamente gratuito.

Sarà sufficiente seguire pochi semplici passi per potrete avere un sistema operativo portatile, abilitato a salvare i dati personali nella /home in modalità persistente affinchè non spariscano quando chiuderete la sessione.

Anche la partizione /root è persistente, perciò si potranno installare i programmi preferiti da portare sempre con sè.

Il programma userà al massimo i primi 4 giga, mentre nello spazio rimanente verrà creata automaticamentente una partizione universale fat32 per i Dati, da interscambiare con altri sistemi quali Windows e MacOs.

Il programma ha una semplice GUI, disponibile in Inglese, Francese ed Italiano e funziona non solo con Mandriva 2010.2, ma anche con le Mandriva derivate e customizzate.

Mandriva 2010.2 released

Written by rugyada Thursday, 23 December 2010 09:11


Mandriva 2010.2 is out

The announce in Mandriva Blog:

Please welcome the Mandriva 2010.2 release, which is coming to a mirror nearby you right now!

As announced previously, Mandriva 2010.2 is an incremental update on top of Mandriva 2010.1, incorporating all the security and bugfix updates since its release.

Just to give you some statistics about what changes in 2010.2 when comparing to 2010 Spring (also known as 2010.1), these are some of the numbers.

Since the 2010.1 release, the secteam has released a total of 5055 RPMs via official updates, counting both security and bugfix advisories, across 272 different packages.

Of course, some of these packages were updated more than once (for example, firefox and thunderbird went through several releases since 2010.1), so if we count the latest versions of all the updates, Mandriva 2010.2 will have a total count of 2522 officially updated and supported rpm packages since the Mandriva 2010.1 release.

If we count the total number of packages which will be available with Mandriva 2010.2 version that were updated since the 2010.1 release, it gives us a whooping number of 6312 modified packages (considering updates, backports and testing medias). And in total it gives 34GB of updated packages across all the medias and architectures.

With such a big number of updated packages, we decided to release an updated version of Mandriva 2010 Spring incorporating these packages – Mandriva 2010.2 – which we proudly release now.

And of course, the development and support will not stop now! As usually, we will continue supporting all the packages during the lifetime of the distribution. In the next few weeks, there will be updates for KDE and OpenOffice.org packages, among the usual security and bugfix advisories and updates. So stay tuned!
