Re: Mageia 2 released!

I have Mageia 2 (Gnome) running in VirtualBox. Definitely different. It does have a functioning desktop
I'll have to play around some more, get a better understanding of the system.
First question: is how to update? No yum update in a cli, and no apparent update interface other than notification of updates. When I acknowledged the notification of updates, it dissappeared. Does that mean it is updating?

And what's this rpmdrake business

Some exploring to do

@BBQDave

Mageia uses urpmi for cli package management. To update run as root
Code:
urpmi --auto-update
Some other good info about urpmi:

RPMDrake is the graphical package management frontend to URPM.
