raymac46 Posted March 30, 2021 Share Posted March 30, 2021 Those of you who know me well realize that I have a soft spot for Mageia - because it is a fork of one of Bruno's favorite distros. I ran Mandriva for a while so I am quite familiar with its control center and RPM package management. Now I don't want another distro installed on the rails but I would like to have Mageia in VirtualBox. The problem I have had in the past is that after an update or two Mageia usually crashes and burns and I am faced with a VBox nuke and repave job. However hope springs eternal, and Mageia 8.0 is out so I'll give it a go. Installation was easy and the Guest Additions work out of the box. I chose the Xfce desktop because I usually manage to screw up Plasma panels immediately after install. I installed the Otter Browser which I quite like. I am now posting from Mageia 8 on VBox 6.1. We'll see how long I can survive. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
