Mandriva One… Tried two times… still equals zero October 31, 2006Posted by NAyK in First Impressions, Linux, Mandriva, Working on Linux.
(This article was written before I finally got Mandriva One to work on my Lenovo Notebook. Read my impressions here)
What this title is trying to say is that I finally decided to try the Mandriva One CD… and first burned the iso image of KDE4… with the English/Hindi language options.
The Live CD stalled at “reading HAL” stage… and when I pressed enter and asked it to continue… it loaded to a text menu… asking for login. I couldn’t kdm/gdm/xdm… it just stayed on the text screen. A total disappointment.
I tried again today… this time with the conventional KDE Free… and the exact same thing happened.
Now considering that Mandriva was the best distro I used in terms of hardware recognition of my AMD desktop… I couldn’t imagine why a later version would have problems with my system. Still… I’m willing to concede some such problem… and will now look for the more stable… three CD version… chucking this nonesense Mandriva One idea.
Hope that will work!
