Recently I had downloaded and installed Mandriva Linux 2006 on my HP Pavilion DV1000. Overall, look and performance is great so as some of the previous Mandrake releases, nothing special to add.BTW, here are some screen shots.
First of all, welcome to the world of protocols !
TCP is OK but what is this SCTP ?
Simply put, a new transport layer (remember OSI model !), just like TCP but has many advantage specifically made for the telecom industry.
Key features include
1. Message framing
2. Multihoming and,
3. Multi streaming.
Now, do we really need a new transport layer protocol when people are happy using TCP as a standard and most stable protocol on the earth? Fortunately or unfortunately, YES !
Today I got the Mandrake Linux 10.1 (official) CDs
I am going to install it on my PC (PIII with nvidia TNT2 and adcon TV tuner card) and will sure post the review soon !
BTW, thanks to http://www.linuxbazar.com
Once again I dumped RedHat !
Last month I installed RedHat only for the ClearCase installation.I was learning clearcase and I badly needed Clearcase to tryout some stuff. (Specially triggers !)
Clearcase installed on RedHat without any problem. Although I had to recompile vnode.o.But that also went on smoothly.
But believe me, when it comes to Desktop usage RedHat just sucks !
On Mandrake, vnode.o compilation was giving some problem that was why I had installed Red Hat.
The error was related to vnode_shadow_setxattr ( donno what it is ! ) .It was due to some strict prototype checking. (In Make file there was a flag Strict-Prototype… something like that).I removed that flag then OMG, the module vnode.o compiled !
That means, now there is no need for RedHat
