As stated on Mageia blog, Alpha 2 is out. We look for your tests !

    - list of included softwares in isos and repositories: if you see missing one explaining why we should add it on http://bugs.mageia.org
    - upgrade from Mandriva Linux 2010.1 and 2010.2**: our target is to have easy upgrade for final release. Tests are really important. Please have a look on http://mageia.org/wiki/doku.php?id=qa_upgrade
    - hardware detection: test your hardware configuration and report any bugs on it
    - installation process: use Alpha2 isos to test Mageia installer following

Nice to have forums :)

I installed Mandriva 2009 on a test machine, upgraded it to 2010.2, and then migrated it to Mageia, using repositories (not DVD), and it went pretty well :mrgreen:

This about 2 weeks ago, little after alpha2 had been released. I just have about ~30 "mdv" packages now.

Mageia is starting to shine :)

Hi!

Upgraded from 2010.2 to Mageia Alpha 2 using the distrib-coffee repos (without testing) by editing urpmi.cfg. Did an urpmi --auto-update (under X :shock: ).

It works. Fast and stable. Only one little issue: The tag editor of rhythmbox doesn't work sometimes ... Ah, and Gnome seems to start a little bit slow. But that was it.

Overall a great success!

:mrgreen:
cheers,
Bernd

You can use the alpha2-dvds as live-system.
Do you mean something like "Mandriva One"?
