So far I have downloaded both:
Mandriva Linux 2007.1 Beta 1 DVD (ISO) (4300 MB)
Mandriva Linux 2007 DVD (ISO) i586 (4300 MB)
And after going through hours to try and get it to install it tells me "your CPU does not support long mode use a 32 bit distribution". It says this on both the versions I have downloaded!!!
OK, first I downloaded "Mandriva Linux 2007.1 Beta 1 DVD" and it told me use a 32 bit diestrbution so I went and downloaded "Mandriva Linux 2007 DVD (ISO) i586" because I thought that was the 32bit distribution. WHAT IS GOING ON?Is that not the 32 bit?
P.S. after a total of 20hrs downloading both distributions, form softpedia.com, I am sick of downloading and now I would really like to be able to make one of the distributions I downloaded JUST WORK.
Is there some way to modify the ones I downloaded?
