Actually, it’s only extremely exceptional that I use X on this system (it’s mostly running headless), but it’s good to still have GNOME in case I have a problem with my laptop.I did not yet reboot the system; actually it is still running a 2.6.24 RC kernel with an uptime of more than one year.There are more than 12,000 packages in the full Mandriva 2006 tree on the Mandriva mirrors Often trying to install new software or updating already installed software in GNU-based Linux systems can be difficult and a real pain in the butt.Not so for Mandrake Linux, now known as Mandriva Linux.The Red Hat kernels are packaged in the RPM format so that they are easy to upgrade and verify by the When upgrading from Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 to Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8, Red Hat strongly recommends that you reinstall the whole OS.While it is theoretically possible to update all necessary packages, it could easily result in the system being unusable.Actually, this system was still running Mandriva 2008.1 with KDE 3.5.
