An attempt to get some more and better documentation started

Trying to get some basic user focused documentation written.

Anyway comments and constructive criticism are welcome.

What I wrote recently:

The general categories in our wiki are:

I think people will see plenty there that needs to be changed, rewritten, or written. We need people to help with this or it will take a long time to get this done.

There are other categories in our wiki that need help besides these two. Just thought the two above should get some immediate action with the release of OM Lx 4.0.


Some more attempts to update/improve documentation. The FAQ we currently have is embarrassing. That should be changed ASAP.

Issue here is not easy to creative wikipedia account try to contact join [AT] openmandriva [DOT] org) but they newer reply a more than a month ago,

Sorry for this @lmh1, we indeed have some issues to fix in the workflow. You now should have received an account creation link in your email box.

But why is this wikipedia page deleted? I need more information if i should make new one if they did not be deleted beause other works on it.

I think its should be Openmandriva free and Cooker, Rolling, Rock, and Release explaning?


  1. before even to think about writing official wiki pages you’d better learn how to write correct English as if you write there the same way you write here nobody will understand anything
  2. before writing wiki pages which are supposed to explain to others you’d better know things yourself :grin:

There is a wiki page explaining this.

What are you talking about? I said nothing about deleting any wiki pages.

This page has been deleted. The deletion and move log for the page are provided below for reference.

  • 16:41, 3 August 2019 Ben79 (Talk | contribs) deleted page OpenMandriva Release Plan and Repositories(DRAFT) (Author request: content was: " = Release Plan and Repositories = With the Release of OpenMandriva Lx 4.0 OpenMandriva the distribution has implemented a new release plan in order to better organ…" (and the only contributor was "[[Special:Contributi…)

So what is this? The word Draft was removed from the title, the page still exists.

The page:

is empty because it needs to be written better than it was.

I’m hoping these pages are improved now:

This is because it did something wrong. I now know more and won’t do things that way in the future.
Apologies for that.

But why did you close this topic and open again?

can you please fix:

urpmi qemu-static-aarch64
mkdir /chroot/aarch64
urpmi.addmedia --distrib --urpmi-root /chroot/aarch64
urpmi --urpmi-root /chroot/aarch64 basesystem urpmi clang

That did not make sence longer i guess the most user use LX 4.0 today.
