OpenMandriva Lx 3.01 is Released, Bring Kernel 4.9.0 with BFQ as a default CPU scheduler

Kate Lebedeff has announced the release of OpenMandriva Lx 3.01, an updated build of the distribution’s 3.0 branch, featuring the KDE Plasma desktop, which was originally released in August

The OpenMandriva distribution is a full-featured Linux desktop and server, sponsored by the OpenMandriva Association. It is based on ROSA, a Russian Linux distribution project which forked Mandriva Linux in 2012, incorporating many of Mandriva’s original tools and utilities and adding in-house enhancements. The goal of OpenMandriva is to facilitate the creation, improvement, promotion and distribution of free and open-source software in general, and OpenMandriva projects in particular.

Work on 3.01 releases has further improved stability and performance with freshly updated software.
The 3.01 release brings a number of major fixes since 3.0 release:

– updated software
– new drivers and kernel – better support for newer hardware
– many bugs fixed
– stable Plasma running on Wayland

OpenMandriva Lx is a cutting edge distribution compiled with LVM/clang. Combined with the high level of optimisation used for both code and linking (by enabling LTO) used in its building, this gives the OpenMandriva desktop an unbelievably crisp response to operations on the KDE Plasma 5 desktop which makes it a pleasure to use.
The latest release of all the KDE applications is there to support the desktop and help give you a consistent feel.

Main features:
  • KDE Plasma 5.8.4
  • KDE Frameworks 5.29.0
  • KDE Apps 16.08.3
  • Qt Framework 5.6.2
  • Kernel 4.9.0 with BFQ as a default CPU scheduler
