Mandriva 2008.1

There hasn't been any post for quite a while, although I have been taming the penguin quite well :)

The nasty bug with rpm has finally been solved. It turned out to be some kernel problem. The unofficial solution was to reboot under the old 2.6.17 and rebuild the db. If that still doesn't work for you, you should continue reporting it at the Mandriva Bugzilla.

So I have been having a real stable system for a few months, and today I was really surprised to find out that the first alpha version of 2008.1 has been released. That was incredibly fast compared to the delay in 2008.0. It comes with KDE 4 RC2 that everyone has been longing for. Recently I've heard that KDE 4 not only had a better look & feel and cool new features, but it also provided better performance too :)

Time to update to the new version and see how it works :)
