Mandriva Linux 2007 RC2 Sunna

Mandriva Linux 2007 Release Candidate 2 Sunna is ready to be tested.

Main changes from RC1 Mona are:

  • Several bugs fixed in rpmdrake
  • Text installation fixed
  • Various fixes to Ia Ora themes
  • arts patched to prevent some problems (apps dying on startup, arts being launched in non-KDE environments)
  • various other bugfixes

As you’ve been faithfully doing for the past several weeks, RC2 Sunna is available in many different flavours. Grab one or many from the mirrors, check out the known issues, install it and help us hunt and squash bugs with Bugzilla.

Thank you to all testers for the help they’ve been giving. Long hours, short nights. Keep up the effort, we’re almost there now: Mandriva Linux 2007 is almost ready to roll. It’s already rocking :)

“Here comes the Sun” as they say.

Mona, or Máni, God of the Moon, has been unleashed by Warly and the team. On the race to Mandriva Linux 2007, it’s the first release candidate. Miam.

Now that Tyr was put to sleep, there have been some changes:

  • New Ia Ora Theme also available under KDE
  • New backgrounds integrated
  • The network module b44 should be fixed
  • The default web page for the web browser should display correctly

Yes yes yes, new backgrounds.

As usual, read out the known issues, and once you’ve downloaded Mona and got it up and running, feed any nasty bug you find to Bugzilla.

Even though this is neither a beauty nor hair contest, everyone go grab a mirror !
