Released PCLinuxOS 2012.02 KDE

A new screenshot of PCLinuxOS has recently been released.

For those of you who don't know, PCLinuxOS is a distro based on Mandriva, but this time it is a disto with a rolling release character, which means that once installed it is not necessary to install new versions as it is constantly updated.

Another fact is that, curiously, it uses Apt as a package manager instead of using your own package manager . Rpm.

We have two versions, a normal and a mini, which takes up less on a disk.

The distro can be downloaded from here!

    I don't understand, if PC Linux OS is mandriva-based, how can you use apt package manager and if Mandriva is Urpmi ???

      The manager can be adapted, this is like with Frugalware, it is based on Slackware and uses Pacman

      You can also use APT in Fedora.

    I love this distribution, in general I don't like KDE, but with this distro it's different.

    I would have installed it on my laptop if I had seen it 1 hour ago before installing Mandriva «The best distribution there is» Hahaha.

      The one in the first comment of that link seemed quite fanboy to me, that's why I told him what I said

        Well, I removed Mandriva and preferred Chakra. I did not try PCLinuxOS because I like x64 distributions.

        1.    Courage said

          Well, I also like Chakra better than Mandriva, Mandriva is a copy of Mac O $ X

            Nah, you don't have to go overboard either xD. Mandriva is (or was, before many tools were removed, I'm talking about 2010.1) very, very well done. In her time, she was the only one who helped me with an indomitable laptop, although I used Gnome for those times.
            Let's see when I do the glove to Chakra!

    Let's see, I know it has nothing to do with ***, but I need help and I don't know where I can go:
    My problem is the following: of all the distros that I have installed, in none I can increase the resolution of 800 × 600 or 1024 × 768, I have an Intel HD 2000, integrated, in an Intel Pentium Dual Core G620 processor (Sandy Bridge) at 2,6 Ghz.

    What could be the problem? In Windows 7 after installing the graphics driver I set the resolution correctly, without any problem.

    In GNU / Linux the Intel do not use proprietary drivers, because I have had many proceeds with Intel and never had problems….

    *** (I put it in this news because I read in Phoronix that with that version of the kernel that uses PCLinux and the installation of VESA 7.11 it could be solved).

    Thanks in advance and greetings.

    I'm going to try it to see how it works.

    I didn't know it was rolling. A minipoint for PCLinux, already brilliant.

      I didn't know it was either 😀

    one of my favorite distros and the one responsible for my switching to KDE.

    I still remember with nostalgia when I was using Mandrake 10, how time goes by and things change.

    People I congratulate you for the blog, recently I came here from several "Googled" looking for Arch hehe, when I abandon my demon VAIO laptop (sony + ati seem to plot to prevent the life of the penguin) for one with Intel graphics I will return to the Linux world.
