- 2014.0 update disaster
I'm installing 2014.0 64 bit in several pc. Tried in three different:
1) complete installation
2) set network connection and proxy for Software manager
3) start update
update asks for installing around 690 packets. When update arrive at about 60 packet it hangs. Reboot hangs too giving a message about kwin crash.
Tried update using GUI and with command "urpmi --auto-update", same behaviour.
- Feedback about 2014.1 pre release (12.8)
I use the current 2014.1 pre release .iso and have some Questions, mainly about the Repos.
There are just Main32 and Main32Updates preinstalled and my google search, how to add the other repos (non free, as an example) fails. (Why are the Repos for x86_64 are called "32" please ?)
It really confuse me and maybe others as well, that i get the i586 and x86_64 Versions offered, in both Architectures.
plasma-applet-icontasks is (currently) just available for i586, please can somebody add it for x86_64 as well ?
When i try to update i get this error message:
Sorry, the following packages cannot be selected:mkcomposecache-1.2.1-11-omv2014.0.i586
Seems like the i586 version is specified as dependency for the x86_64 package.
Libreoffice Math create 2 additional Category's in each Menu except the default Homerun; Eduction and Science.
I think its fine, to leave it in "Office", nobody needs (such an App) 3 times in the Menu and i like to keep my Category List lean.
I love all the other things, like the wonderful icons, the performance, my first-time silently fan, the Installer (who let me choose the username and password in the first boot sequence after the installation) and this very nice vanilla forum.
Thanks a lot, Matthias
- Wishlist for Openmandriva software :)
Hi all, so it has been a while since I last been on here. For a variety of reasons, Openmandriva is always seems to return to my mind when I think of Linux distros. Partially because of nostalgia for Mandriva itself, but too because it seems to have that magic for a really perfect distro. Honestly, out of the box it has the best experience. The UI is one of the most supreme, plenty of finesse, Openmandriva Control Center, ease of use, smooth desktop/no screen tearing, basic things work out of the box, and so and so. All in all i would really love to use it and promote it, but I cannot if the basics don't seem to be covered. After all the Openmandriva audience I would assume would be the old Mandriva audience: those who want something that works phenomenally out of the box and can be relied upon by even the most ordinary user. With that said, I would like to add a wishlist of things that maybe would make Openmandriva possible to use if they were there. Any other potential Openmandriva user should feel free to post their wishlist below here as well!
1 )Easy bumbleebee (preferably graphical tools like with manjaro, but a well-written wiki guide could do too)
2) Spotify in the package manager.
3)easy encryption option in the installer
4)more printer and wireless drivers included by default. Maybe there could be a non-free and a free-only option by default from the boot of the liveDVD which will allow the user to choose whether they want exclusively free software or some nonfree (For example nvidia drivers, flash player, and etc)
5) Not so much for me, but maybe include a ¨software center¨ that would be useful for people new to linux. I heard the one that fedora uses is actually non-exclusive, which means it could be used by other distros as well as for a front-end.
All I could think of atm got sorta busy than came back to this post haha. Anyways I wish the Openmandriva dev team the best of luck. You guys are doing great there is a lot of promise showing, there just needs to be finishing touches. Maybe there needs to be a way to recruit/attract new developers.
Thanks as usual for you time!
