Mageia online upgrade

Postby viking60 » 05 Jul 2015, 15:15

I just upgraded a laptop (Packard Bell) from Mageia 4 to Mageia 5.
Since I like roling releases I chose Upgrading online, using urpmi (CLI)

And I have to say; it went like a charm

Now I only have to figure out if it is at all possible to install a Brother DCP-L2500D printer.

I have installed all the brother stuff but I cannot get it to work
Manjaro 64bit on the main box -Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU 920 @ 2.67GHz and nVidia Corporation GT200b [GeForce GTX 275] (rev a1. + Centos on the server - Arch on the laptop.

That's how I've always liked to do it. :)
I'd rather be a free person who fears terrorists, than be a "safe" person who fears the government.
