Mandriva Linux (formerly Mandrakelinux or Mandrake Linux) is a Linux distribution created by Mandriva (formerly Mandrakesoft). The first release was based on Red Hat Linux (version 5.1) and KDE (version 1.0) in July 1998. It has since diverged from Red Hat and has included a number of original tools mostly to ease system configuration.
ZoneMinder has worked well with Mandr* since v1.17.0 on Mandrake 9.2. This combo was the basis of the first ZMliveCD.
RPM packages have been available since Mandrake 10.0. A link to download can be found here: http://www.zoneminder.com/wiki/index.php/ZMliveCD
To install RPMs on a Mandriva system several perl modules that are not part of the Mandriva distro are required. RPMs for these are availible from the same dowload location as the zm packages.
