Mandriva pulse 2 EOL?

Post by fergeco » Thu May 28, 2015 7:24 pm

Hi,

I installed the IT Management Station on my QNAP yesterday.
So far so good .. but it asked me to activate the software with a mandriva account.

When i tried to go to the page and create an account the website was unavailable.
after some research i read the following:

http://uk.businessinsider.com/mandriva- ... 015-5?r=US

It looks like Mandriva is out of business :(
does this also mean the end of Pulse 2?

If not: how can i activate the software now?

Hi fergeco,

Unfortunately, I think it is the end of the support of Pulse on QNAP. And I think no one is able now to install Pulse on QNAP, as a chrooted Debian image is downloaded during installation from Mandriva servers, who are shutted down.

But Pulse is not dead, as it is an open-source project under GPL Licence: https://github.com/mandriva-management-console/mmc

I hope a community will born in the next weeks, I'll try to help people on how to install, configure, and use Pulse. If someone is interested, of course :)
