Detailed specifications for Mandriva version:=2008.1.


Base System


SuggestionAuthorBugzillaStatusWho will doPriority / # days
Research some sort of read&write filesystem compression and make it available if possible. It would be good for products like Flash.

  • e2compr implements the +c file attribute, has patches for new 2.6 kernels --spuk * puppy linux seem to have done something about this --spuk
Herton herton low
Take a more in depth look in drm (direct rendering manager) development, would be good to test and if all is ok bring in some of the missing drm pieces (nouveau comes to mind). Herton
Test more unionfs and try to fix/report the bugs, also try/test aufs, and may be add squashfs-lzma support to kernel. Herton kernel team high
Improve DKMS management Blino Blino , secteam high / 2
switch to gcc 4.3 Pixel postponed to post 2008.1 Pixel normal / 7
use upstream udev rules, clean Mandriva rules Blino Blino high / 2
migrate (and merge?) sound and alsa services in udev rules Blino Blino/TV normal
use upstream helpers for persistent rules (net + block), port useful features from our scripts in these helpers and send upstream Blino Blino normal / 2
Switch to maintained sysklogd alternative by default (either syslog-ng or rsyslog) Guillaume Rousse rsyslog seems the solution for now - to be checked with other distributions. Must be decided in coming days G. Rousse, Blino high

Support for fingerprint authentication. Maybe the fprint project could be integrated into next Mandriva. valz


needs to be evaluated Anne low
Replace bootsplash Various 40% - in progress, working on splashy to be reevaluated as lots of bugs appear in use Blino normal
Implement hybrid suspend mode 10% - a template for this mode has been added to pm-utils. It is currently non-functional. normal
Publish virtualized images of beta and final releases for testing Anne high


SuggestionAuthorBugzillaStatusWho will doPriority / # days
virtinst support (drakvirt is a waste of time IMHO, when compared with virt-manager) Guillaume Rousse low
Add support for QEMU (+kqemu) beside actually supported Xen Jiri Hlinka low
Move Xen outside the kernel package Luiz Capitulino Assigned to: the kernel team, Guillaume Rousse and Thomas Backlund. Status: 90% - Xen is dropped from the kernel package. External packages are updated, pending completion of testing and bug fixes. kernel team, G. Rousse normal


SuggestionAuthorBugzillaStatusWho will doPriority / # days
Mandriva 2008.1 could support multiple terminals (keyboard+mouse+monitor) attached to a single machine. Potential academic partnership with UFPR.

Features to be implemented: * Working out-of the box (no patches or external tools required) * Sound support * USB-storage support * Configuration tool

Ademar Ademar normal
Xorg 7.3 pcpa normal
Input-hotplug should work out of the box, but to support all of its features, we would need to spend time on research and experiments, since several parts of its architecture are still undefined and there's a lot of interaction between the xserver and the desktop environment. pcpa normal
Fix less-used (less-famous) drivers which are seriously broken pcpa normal

Fontconfig: enable full hinting/subpixel smoothing by default, as most users today use LCD monitors (where this looks much better), and even on CRT monitors it looks very good with todays freetype Frederik Himpe pcpa normal
Update metapackages pcpa normal

Hardware support

SuggestionAuthorBugzillaStatusWho will doPriority / # days
ACPI: Create a script (if it does not yet exist) which is run when switching to battery power to consume less energy. In the script, execute things proposed on http://www.lesswatts.org (disable wake on lan, cpu scheduler tweaks, laptop mode...) Frederik Himpe Partly


to be evaluated
CPUFREQ: activate the ondemand governer by default in the cpufreq packages, even on desktops to consume power Frederik Himpe to be evaluated
SUSPEND TO RAM: Disable suspend-to-ram when it's not supported ( for example suspend to ram does not work if ati framebuffer is actived) ,we should use the result of s2ram -n for that which mean installation of suspend-s2ram by default) Balcaen John


to be evaluated
automatic bios update, through dell firmware-tools support Guillaume Rousse tests on the way as we have to check stability of it
Switch to sane backends cvs version for better scanner support, like Debian has done (http://packages.debian.org/source/sid/sane-backends) Frederik Himpe mrl high
Install Athcool for AMD Athlon/Duron processors. Cools down the CPU and saves energy. Grmblmbl We used to install it automatically but it froze on some machines => NACK (Thierry)


SuggestionAuthorBugzillaStatusWho will doPriority / # days
Detect and preserve other distributions in bootloader configuration Frank Koester


Done Pixel high
Convert rpmsrate to XML format Pixel  ? postponed for 2009 low
Add a .exe file into Live CDs in order to launch install from Windows xavy94


See to launch install from Windows Pixel low

Possibility to read the release notes during the installation of packages Frederik Himpe

#34576 #32617

Pixel normal
Support more than 15 partitions when using libata (http://kerneltrap.org/Linux/Supporting_bMore_Partitions) Frederik Himpe


Pixel normal
Automatic partitioning always uses classic partitions. There should be an option (for example a checkbox in the window that pops up when using Diskdrake in Advanced mode) to use LVM. Frederik Himpe low
Fix stage1 to set host name Guillaume Rousse


Pixel normal
Fix stage1 to set correctly detect wired interface Guillaume Rousse


Pixel, Blino normal
Set possibility to chose the kernel-laptop by a simple question ("is it a desktop or a latop ?"). This would install latop's config tools automatically Frédéric Cuif (Fredxx) Nack (tv) : we'd better fix the laptop detection code kernel team high

Being able to add external media or an external set of media at install time Olivier Thauvin Pixel normal
Being able to select/unselect media coming with the distribution, to allow for example to not install more than 32bits packages, or to exclude non-free/contrib, or to add backports, especially during network install Olivier Thauvin Pixel normal

Packages Management


SuggestionAuthorBugzillaStatusWho will doPriority / # days
switch to rpm pixel Done pixel high
Research, fix and adopt lzma compression on packages by default. Not due to compression ratio, but due to decompression timing. It will be nice to see reviews telling that we are the fastest distro to install.

How can it be faster than gzip ? (tv)
mrl Done in rpm. Not by default but used per package via %_binary_payload (eg: openoffice) Per Øyvind
either have a http://mandriva.com/distrib/2008.0/i586 generic url that dynamically redirect to a mirror (but this is costly on mandriva server) or introduce a new urpmi URI like mirror://2008.0/i586 that is handled by urpmi + geo-ip - provide for 2008.1 geoip implementation to get mirrors list

pixel high pixel 3
enhance removable:// to handle cdrom not in fstab (cf bug #34569): do not eject and mount cdrom but wait for it to be mounted by a volume manager or ask HAL, through D-Bus to mount / unmount / eject CD/DVD when they are inserted pixel pixel high / 2
packageKit backend to be applied for mdkonline Tv high
Offline repositories list to be only updated first time when system get online and did and update -a mrl Done in urpmi 5.5: updated on first urpmi Pixel
we should be able to install only one of myspell-pt_BR,myspell-pt_PT instead of both. for this:* packages should require locales-xx_YY instead of simply locales-xx * we should split locales-xx into many pkgs, but the current provides locales-xx_YY,locales-xx_ZZ should be enough * perl-URPM/urpmi must be modified to make things work as wanted (should be easy) * installation of l10n packages should be transparent to the end-user: he should not have to specify it in order to get it installed. Eg: urpmi moBugzilla-firefox and it pulls up moBugzilla-firefox-<locale> correctly. --mrl * provide a packaging rule for l10n packages: <foo>-i18n-<locale>, <bar>-<locale>, <geez>-l10n-<locale>.. urpmi won't be able to handle this mess alone. mrl #34877
Add software repositories via weblink

How about something like the One Click install in OpenSuSE and their software portal software.opensuse.org/search for Mandriva?

Javier Martínez Villacampa


 ? low
A 'noclean' global option on urpmi.cfg (exists --noclean option if you use urpmi from console but there is no way to use it if you use graphical gui like mdk_applet or rpmdrake). There are many people with more than one computer with same version of Mandriva installed with more or less the same programs and when there are updates, they download them twice or more: why not add an option to urpmi.cfg (with the proper graphical way to configure it on rpmdrake, as I stated above) that permit globaly that packages won't be erased after a correct installation? This way banwidth from Mandriva repos will be saved too. Th3n3k


Make URPMI able to be used without internet connection: add a way to configure repos without a need to inet connection (downloading from another computer a rpm package wich contains hdlists and all needed info, for example) and a way to handle dependencies offline (something like apt-zip on debian systems: a way that urpmi tells you the URL for all the needed packages. You'll download those URL on a connected PC and then you'll bring to the non-connected one) Th3n3k


Make urpmi download next packages in the background while upgrading package to speed up process Per Øyvind Karlsen  ?
Get rid of file dependencies pixel high
Implement generation of metalinks based on geoip data at api.mandriva.com so users don't have to worry about selecting mirrors. Using aria2 as client for metalinks will also add support for segmented downloading so that users can get higher speeds if their bw is bigger than what mirrors might provide. This should also help avoid problems when a mirror is not up to date, other mirrors will be tried as well -

aria2 should be planned for 2009 for having reasonnable planning

Per Øyvind Karlsen


legacy non-standard behaviour patches removal (documentation conflict patch, localstatedir redifinition, ...) Guillaume Rousse
various rpm macros and helper inventory and cleanup Guillaume Rousse
reasonable backport policy definition Guillaume Rousse

#34919 #29155

to be precised low

rpmdrake-find-leaves Christophe Gaubert


 ? Titi normal
Mirrors should be selected by default, with just a question about installation of plf repos. xavy94 - So simplify mirrors adding similar to:


Titi normal
Re-Start download of RPM when internet connection has failed xavy94
Show total size of packages in "Additional packages required" dialog Divius normal
If possible, show KDE3.5 and KDE4 in separate categories in rpmdrake. mrdrewed
Put task- packages to better use so they're more visible and actually gets used by regular users. RPMDrake could have it's own section with 'wizards' using the task meta packages. Per Øyvind Karlsen normal
allow rpmdrake to install packages and dependencies and store all in the disk creating a local mirror (or an unique package) killer1987


 ? ? ?
Easy way (graphical one) to allow choose/change between synthesis <-> full hdlists repos

Final proposal will be on demand information, providing description, content and changelog when asked to keep synthesis efficiency
