aLinux 12.9 â A Blast From the Past

,----[ Quote ]
| How did I find aLinux 12.9? It surprisingly 
| worked real well, for a hobbyist 
| distribution. Packages were as usual, a 
| hybrid of pretty old stuff and new libraries. 
| GCC is a bit outdated; WINE is included in 
| the install as well (itâs old though).
| The planets screensaver for the screensaver 
| settings in KDE always crashed for me. Other 
| than that, all else worked fine.


I did it! I found a Linux that works well with Laptops., I installed Mandriva ONE 2010

| For obvious reasons I did not install 
| Mandriva FREE! I had no inclination of 
| chasing all over the place for non-free 
| drivers, and codecs. Although Mandriva ONE is 
| a smaller package, this will suit me fine, 
| since mostly everything works, including 
| wireless laptop networking. And it was all 
| inclusive in the "Live CD Installable 
| Package". My only immediate concern is that 
| I've not been able to install the printer 
| drivers. The Mandriva printer setup is 
| something that I've not encountered up 'till 
| now. And my attempt only resulted in the 
| whole thing bombing out.. It is supposed to 
| go on the Internet and download some 
| packages?? to be able to install the 
| printers. But it seems that those 
| applications are broken.
