Linux Update: Mandriva 2006
Well, what with this unanticipated accession of free time, I gone and done it yesterday. Installed Mandriva Linux 2006 on my IBM ThinkPad.
And it worked very nicely, too: I was surprised, after some of the horror stories I'd read out there. It worked very nicely, until I tried to remove a resource hog desktop search tool called Kat. I removed it, all right; and messed up the system in the process.
So I got up early this morning, and reinstalled everything from scratch. Give me a few more hours here, and I'll be right back to the perfected Mandriva 2006 install I had yesterday evening. Right before I removed that desktop search tool.
In the meanwhile, a first: I am posting to my blog this morning from the Lynx browser.
