Mandrake 8.0 Begins to Arrive

Apr 19, 2001, 12:56 (47 Talkback[s])

From the Mandrake mirrors page:

"There are two ISO images files for Mandrake 8.0 available in the "iso/" directory. One is called Mandrake80-inst.iso and the other Mandrake80-ext.iso which is the extention CD. You can install a working system with only the first CD but the second one brings more applications. These iso images work and are speed-optimized for i586 (Pentium class) processors and higher. The iso mirror list is available here."

We'll have Mandrake's official announcement later today.

From the New Features Page:

  • KDE 2.1.1
  • GNOME 1.4 (Nautilus 1.0.3, Evolution 0.9)
  • Kernel 2.4.3
  • Improved USB/Firewire Support
  • Official Reiser FS support
  • Integrated anti-aliasing support
