Mageia 3 alpha 2 available for tests


Hi there

After some days of bug hunting, alpha 2 isos are finally available for
tests. You will find both classical installer and live CDs and DVDs.

http://blog.mageia.org/en/2012/10/14...lpha-2-is-out/

As usual we need as many reports as possible to improve the next release.

Enjoy!

Thanks for the info ennael, hows networkmanager go running with kde? In Mageia 2, networkmanager plus kde was a disaster. I never filed a bug report because i'm not typically a Mageia user, but i'm pretty sure someone else had already reported it.

Even though you're not a Mageia user, filing a bug report is still useful.

Day 3. I installed a fresh copy of the M3A2 LiveCD on an Core 2 Duo system with 2gb of memory. It is the Gnome 3 version. No issues that I see and the installation went well. It picked up my Windows 7 installation and added it to Grub. It also picked up the external hard drive (500gb) and included my MIFI USB internet adapter without issues.

I just purchased this system from Ebay and installed Win7 on it first, what a chore that was. I had to unplug the ext. HD before it would continue installing at the partition screen. Once I got W7 installed, I had to use my cell phone to goto Dropbox and download the MIFI adapter driver (RNDISInst). I don't know why Windows doesn't include this by default, but good thing Linux does.

Just some thoughts on how this installation went.

SFSG! Keep up the good work Team Mageia.

Let us know how it goes. I talk over at the Opensuse forums now and then, and even a lot of folks over there like Mageia.

Loading stalled after the screen where you have to indicate you've read the agreement. I've been wanting to try it on a different machine but health issues intervened.
