Issue with openmandriva lx 3.0

Hi i get a lot issue with outdated lx 3.0
I have ryzen platform, so its works nice with installer, but have a lot issue with outdated firefox, and skype that is not easy to install, a lot of RPM package, works poor on openmandriva, also deb packes, so i guess its because outdated design?
OpenMandriva Main Testing x86_64
firefox-no-66.0.2-1-omv2015.0.noarch.rpm

But get package not find.

How did you install nvidia drivers? its so much hard than ubuntu\kubuntu.

urpmi kernel-release-headers kernel-release-desktop-devel kernel-release-desktop-devel-latest dkms pkgconfig

But that do its stock up, not possible to boot without error message, i guess kernel give issue with my platform? easy way to fix?

Welcome @lmh1 to OpenMandriva forum.

OpenMandriva is a small group of contributors at present and all are volunteers.

I’ll try to answer the actual questions first:

OM Lx 3 is our current stable release OM Lx 4 is still in development so I’m not sure what is meant by outdated design? They are quite a bit different and we do expect OM Lx 4 to be a lot better in many respects.

That is not firefox that is a language package for firefox. You have to install that either with or after installing the matching firefox-66.0.2-1-omv2015 package for your architecture.

I don’t have nvidia hardware I hope someone else will answer this. But we do have users with nvidia hardware. Some use the opensource nouveau driver and some use the proprietary nVidia driver.

OK, here we get to a point where you post is not specific enough, at least for me, to do much. We have a post that explains how you can help us to help you here. Please help us to help you.

Hope this is helpful.

OM Lx 3 is our current stable release OM Lx 4 is still in development so I’m not sure what is meant by outdated design? They are quite a bit different and we do expect OM Lx 4 to be a lot better in many respects.

But its use much of design of old Mandriva\Mandrake from 2012 or older.
Its almost the same, without LX 4 that use DNF istead i think than URPMI.

Post-edit: At first I thought you might not be doing something right but on looking in to this more there may be a problem. You’ll see more in a post below. This entire post is edited to correct my possible error.

For URL’s I just post them in the reply window or use the chain icon in this screen shot to create hyperlinks:

For screen-shots or .txt files and other files (like .xz compressed) use the UP arrow in this screen-shot:

Screenshot_20190428_144338

There are several things wrong with that. Try this:

$ sudo urpmi.addmedia --no-verify Main-Testing http://ftp-stud.hs-esslingen.de/pub/Mirrors/openmandriva/3.0/repository/x86_64/main/testing/

$ sudo urpmi firefox

Now do this:

$ sudo drakrpm-edit-media

which will open a media manager so you can uncheck Main-Testing repo to prevent breaking things.

@lmh1 I am asking infra team guys to look in to why you may be having problems posting things here.

@raphael @jclvanier is there some reason why @lmh1 would be having difficulty posting URL’s or other things here?

Post-edit: I edited post # 4 above to correct my own error.

Right now we are experiencing technical difficulties with OM Lx 4.0 and it is not a good time to try it. The problems are well known and are being worked on. When OM Lx 4.0 is in a state suitable for user testing again you can be very sure we will let everyone know.

The issues we have go back to an unfortunate server crash in our build system and developers are aware and are working on these as I write. Basically we need to recover our gpg key, do a mass rebuild (automatic rebuild of all packages), fix any problems mass rebuild uncovers, produce an ISO which we will test internally, and either that is OK or if not we will fix any issues we can fix and do our next release. Then it should be OK for users to install and update and all other things we normally do. This will take some days and we will report in this forum when we have an ETA for our next ISO’s.

sudo urpmi.addmedia --no-verify Main-Testing http://ftp-stud.hs-esslingen.de/pub/Mirrors/openmandriva/3.0/repository/x86_64/main/testing/

$ sudo urpmi firefox

get this error message, error with downloading aria2-error quit with code 19.
did not find metadata for main testing.

sudo drakrpm-edit-media this can not be done with console module.
I did not get boot lx3 after i tryed to do this, so did you have idea?
Tryed to startX but get xautg file root.serverauth.5527 did not exist.

No I can not explain all the problems you are having. Are you doing this in Konsole? I just did the exact same firefox update again here:

Screenshot_20190428_160602

Next one: “sudo drakrpm-edit-media” Ignore all the “Gtk-WARNING” stuff it means nothing useful.

Screenshot_20190428_161524

Which will open Configure Media aka: drakrpm-edit-media

Screenshot_20190428_161935

All of this stuff is working just fine here. If I can’t reproduce the problem or see what you are doing it is difficult to say what might be wrong.

Post-edit: This is why we continually ask users to show us exactly what they are doing when we are problem solving. Also post all of the output including exact commands. ect. When people start posting only what they think someone else needs to understand their problem things tend to get confused or worse.

This means “If name resolution failed.” which is a DNS error related to network access I think. Anyway got that from here.

Do internet search of “Linux xauth file root.serverauth.5527 did not exist”. That should point you to a solution.

Possible explanation: If .Xauthority is not writable, you probably started a program or X session as root using su from your normal user and screwed up permissions in your home directory.

Possible solution: Try (substitute your actual user name for uname):

$ sudo chown -R uname:users /home/uname

That command should be run in terminal or Konsole. sudo is used to run a command as root or super user which are similar to admin or administrator in Windows.

But i tryed that:
chown -R localhost:larsmartin /home/larsmartin
chrown: invalid user: ‘localhost:larsmartin’

But if i try:
hostname get i localhost.
If i try:
getent password | grep larsmartin
get i larsmartin:x:101:1005 lars martin: /home/larsmartin:/bin/bash

I don’t seem to be the right person to help you.

Post-edit: This:

is not the same as this:

Which would be:

$ sudo chown -R larsmartin:users /home/larsmartin

Also could you please post code as code with the </> icon. It matters.

If you did exactly what I said and it did not work then you have an answer. The answer is that was not the problem so you keep looking for the real cause. As I suggested:

Or you might come up with better search terms than I did.

Hi,
by default the settings for a new user (trust level 0) are:

newuser max links: 2

(How many links a new user can add to a post.)

newuser max images: 1

(How many images a new user can add to a post.)

newuser max attachments: 3

(How many attachments a new user can add to a post.)

I changed the level of @lmh1 to 1. there should no longer be such limitations.

Hi @lmh1,

The general form of chown is:
chown -option username:groupname target

In your case, that means:
assuming that your group name is larsmartin

chown -R larsmartin:larsmartin /home/larsmartin

You can verify your group name with:
grep larsmartin /etc/group

Note: localhost always refers to the local system, never a user name.

I did not think its a usergroup issue with boot? I still got issue with x.org.

But i found it out, try to use “XFdrake” and reboot, now it works.

sudo urpmi.addmedia --no-verify Main-Testing http://ftp-stud.hs-esslingen.de/pub/Mirrors/openmandriva/3.0/repository/x86_64/main/testing/

$ sudo urpmi firefox

still get error did not find mirror on list from: Index of /3.0/repository/x86_64/main/updates/.

Yes abf had some troubles last weeks.
But I just tried your commands:

sudo urpmi.addmedia --no-verify Main-Testing http://ftp-stud.hs-esslingen.de/pub/Mirrors/openmandriva/3.0/repository/x86_64/main/testing/
 
$ sudo urpmi firefox

without any error.
You might also try another mirror.

You are talking about this drive?

I don’t have such a drive (PCIe SSD) and I cannot give an answer but I’d like to get one :slight_smile:
