In Vbox
 
Tried it out by using the install DVD in VirtualBox.
It is soooooooooooooooo much better than Mandriva.
I love Mageia.

I'm on-board.

I envy. I've tried liveCD without success three times: at netbook, notebook and desktop :mad:
Dracut fails to found root device everytime. :banghead:

3 times the same error on 3 different pieces of hardware: looks like a problem in the ISO image you downloaded (have you checked its MD5 sum?), or in the CD burning itself.

I might be wrong, but that's too much coincidences.

md5sum is correct
image was written to usb stick (Unetbootin). Because of netbook haven't cd drive

I am running Mageia 2. There are some default KDE features that I am getting used to, but other than that, it works like a charm.

Try mandriva-seed or dd instead of unetbootin:

Thanks, with stick that was written by dd Mageia was loaded.
Looks smooth. But a bit slowly than my current debian 6.
Also recognized a problem with sound/music.
Playback interrupts at the high volume (more than 70%). Looks like soundcard overload.
I've tried to change mixer settings, but it doesn't helps.

And playback stops when equalizer settings changed. Playback should be restarted.

Just installed M2 in virtuabox. Mandriva was the first distro I ever tried, might have even still been Mandrake, I can't remember. Suse was the first I got anywhere with but I didn't mess with linux for another 10 years or so. When I came back it was with Mandriva 2009 (spring?) and I quite enjoyed it, but had a few sticky points and somewhere along an upgrade and the bootloader getting borked I gave up, formatted and tried Slackware, which I've come to absolutely love. I've dual booted or ran M* in virtualbox several times since just to see how it's going. This is my first experience with Mageia and I have to say it's actually a very nice distribution....in the 15 minutes I've spent with it that is! HA! I've had time to try out the package manager to get chromium and change the display settings, both were very intuitive, and clean the way I expected them to be.

Anyway it looks like the guys did well with the fork, and I look forward to playing with Mageia 2 a bit. Cheers :)

If that don't work use dd

I'm gonna have to give this distro a shot. I haven't used Mandriva in a LONG time, so this might be interesting. :)
