Anyone have any luck with Mandriva 2007 beta?


To my surprise, I saw on mandriva.com that the beta for 2007 is out.
I tried to install the DVD 586-x86_64 iso file, but right at the end, I mean, the end, it stops and pops up some "folder (or target) not present, or something like that".

"no such folder/target", something like that.
anyone getting this or does it install properly for you?

No such file or directory
It would be good to know what file or directory doesn't exist. It would be also good to report this bug to the Mandriva bugzilla (http://qa.mandriva.com).

Where do I download the latest version?

I want to download a free version for 32 bit where can I find
a CD or dvd version?

I tried looking for the Beta on the Mandrake site but it all appears to be now sales or club members.

I would like to try the 2007 beta or rc1 if possible?

Arrow x86_64 is Dual Architecture, DVD loads either 32 or 64

Barry I had similar problem. I think they would like you to sign up!
I just DL the dvd.iso file last week! I used BitTorrent 4. as I recall.

Follow link `Download Linux' RH side of screen, Main menu about middle. IF U can open your links in new tabs it may be easier to follow this
At LQ ISOs, follow Mandrakelinux to LQ ISOs>Mandrakelinux
Related links: Official Website to mandriva.com `Welcome / Home Mandriva Linux'
Click News about 2nd beta release, go to almost bottom of screen `DOWNLOAD Mandriva Linux Beta ODIN'
From list of mirror sites I picked Taiwan (closest 2 U?), I picked middle link.
Then click middle folder `i586-x86 64'.
U should see choices of CD or DVD,
I burned Data disc in Suse 10.1, it made checksum verifications automatically!! I rebooted, ESC to my boot menu, picked my DVR-K06 as boot & Mandriva ODIN started the install, BUT!
Please C my thread in Newbie about no root option avail w/new ODIN install! I am multiple boot + w/ M$ crap.

The beta is still open to all. Go to http://www.mandriva.com and near the bottom right, there's "News" and you can click on "mandriva beta"

You then go down to "download Mandriva linux beta odin" (shortcut below this)

http://www.mandriva.com/en/linux/200...alinux2007beta

From there, go to your country, assuming USA. and the way it's set up is this:

Mandriva Linux 2007 Beta 2 "Odin":

Note : The ISO files are under 3 directories.

i586 holds the 32bits version of Mandriva One (Live/Install CD) (also works on x86_64).
x86_64 holds the 64bits version of Mandriva One (Live/Install CD).
i586_x86_64, for the Dual Architecture DVD/CDs ISO files.

Find the folder you desire and simply download the ISO file. I did last night and tried it today. It's not quite fully ready of course. I had some issues already.
