Mandriva 2010 image in alpha (updated)

Server hosting by Gandi allow customers to choose from a selection of OS images available during the creation process of the virtual server. After the creation of the image by Gandi and internal testing, a new distribution is released to a specific group of hosting customers called 'alpha'. These clients can create server using these release candidate images. This allows Gandi to increase the types of testing and usage, and to find more bugs and problems by working with a small group of its customers.

Today - May the 21th - the Mandriva 2010.0 image has been released . This new version of the Mandriva distribution boots with a 2.6.27 kernel by default. It is currently only available for the 'alpha' customer group but will shortly be available for all customers. Please contact us if you wish to participate in our alpha testing phase.
