Mageia is a branch of Mandriva Linux that was formed in September 2010 and was created by the former employee and contributor of the popular Linux distribution from France. Unlike Mandriva’s business entity, the Mageia project is a community project and a non-profit organization whose goal is to develop a free Linux-based operating system.


Mageia 7.1 released.


  • kernel 5.1.14
  • rpm 4.14.2
  • dnf 4.2.6
  • Mesa 19.1
  • Plasma 5.15.4
  • GNOME 3.32
  • Xfce 4.14pre
  • Firefox 67
  • Chromium 73
  • LibreOffice 6.2.3

It’s very important to note that if you have a working system, there is nothing that you need to address. This release is primarily to fix installation on systems with the above CPU’s.

Update wise, Mageia 7.1 has a fixed version of systemd and all validated bugfix and security updates as of 2019/07/11. The core of the distribution remains untouched from Mageia 7.
