Mandriva 2008.1 Spring ideas

Now is the time to publish all your feature requests for the next version of Mandriva on the wiki. Some of my personal requests: integrated LTSP support, KDEPim 3.5 Enterprise, IcedTea Java installed by default in Mandriva Free, LUKS support in Diskdrake, some more work for reducing power consumption, etc… Make your requests known now before it is too late!

PS: Please don’t post suggestions or bug reports here: they will only be ignored. The only right place for bug reports is Mandriva’s bugzilla, and for feature requests is the wiki.

    I have a Mandriva account but i can’t edit the wiki to add sugestion for Mandriva spring 2008.1

    When I logged on and try to edit the page it asks me to register again.

    How to edit the wiki?

    Make sure that you log in with your e-mail address and the correct password. It happend to me before too that I was trying to use some login name instead of the e-mail address. Unfortunately there is no clear error message about this problem, so it’s very confusing.

    I would like to see more support to cameras and scanners. A lot has been done but a lot more lacks. Without hardware support, people will remain with windows.
    No one wants to take something off. Cause the OS doesnt let them using it.

    mandriva 2008 is the best ever. NICE WORK

    I use Mandriva One. I would like NTFS r/w support setup by default, and a better support for dual monitoring.

    Thanks a lot

    It’s hard to think how to improve on Mdv.2008 other than upgrade the software versions and drivers to whatever becomes current at that time. It is really the best distro right now.

    A few software requests: Semantik, Cinelerra CVS, Kumula.

    A few hardware priorities: Via Chrome graphics, Everex “Green PC” and laptops, more feature complete Wacom support.

    A general focus direction: linux for arts and the environment.

    I also second that ‘out-of-the-box’ LTSP would be great, particularly with support for sound & removable hardware working by default. LTSP team expects the disto team to do this work.
