CD ISO size for Mandriva


I want to install Mandriva for x86_64. From the download site - I only see one ISO for CD - no DVD and not the 3 CD ISOs.

Anyway, when I download the 699 Mb file, it shows up as a 715 Mb ISO, which Roxio promptly rejects. How do I burn this onto CD?

If I am not mistaken the x86_64 only comes as a DVD ISO.

Really? I could have sworn that i586 FTP sites had both 3-CD downloads or 1-DVD download. But the x86_64 FTP sites only had one ISO, and it said CD. Maybe they did mean DVD - only since the size was ~ 700 Mb I assumed it was a CD. If it IS meant to be a DVD download, why wouldn't the file be much bigger and include additional software, etc.?

In any case, some of the FTP sites said the file was 699 Mb, but when I downloaded it grew to 715 Mb. Is this common?

Are you burning it as an image or as a data file, there is a difference.. I think you are just burning the file directly as a data file.
You need to burn as an image.

x86_64 comes as CD and DVD.

The CD version should have at least 3 (my club version had 4) CDs.

Also--try something other than roxio--it gives people a lot of hassle with images...but follow the above advice as well.

Can you tell me where to get this x86_64 and is it 10.2, as the one I have downloaded rc1 is
faulty with apache and nobody seems to have noticed, or can give me help in fixing it.

being as it is release client one, you will not get support for it.

I got mine through a mandriva club membership. That is about the only way to get it unless you get an install from the directory tree--which i don't think is available for mandriva x86_64
