Mandriva Free 2010

Just installed Mandriva Free 2010. I wanted to test other Linux system than Ubuntu. Why always Ubuntu after all?
Well I am greatly impressed by the ergonomy of this systems.

I only had to install the firmware ipw2200 which I simply did by clicking on the rpm file, then restarted.

I'm posting here somme useful commands,


To install a package:

urpmi nameofpackage


urpme nameofpackage

Both urpmi and urpme install and desintall packages with dependances.

Well, dare to change!
