Mandriva 2006 — RC1

Installed the Mandriva 2006 OS (Release Canidate 1). Easier to install than XP without the pesky phone activation.

I have an NVIDIA GeForce 440 which required me to install drivers from the [Nvidia site]. Before running the script, just install the kernel-source thru the package maanger. And then afterward change ‘/etc/X11/XF86Config’ to use (Driver “nvidia”) instead of (Driver “nv”) Un-Viola!

I think I’ll install [.NET Mono] next.

And more importantly, let’s not forget [Easy URPMI].

Also installed the [VLC media player] with ‘urpmi vlc’.

The VLC player is useful for watching videos or steaming videos like the [Blender interface video tutorials].
