Desktop environment (KDE, LXQT…): KDE Default Plasma from clean install into physical PC
Description of the issue (screenshots if relevant): I get this error message in a popup and Mandragora closes g-dbus-error-quark: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReply: Message recipient disconnected from message bus without replying (4)
I don’t know what is going on, in fact yesterday I noticed I the repository config from Mandragora in the options was different than the one you set in the New Config Panel, so I carefully read all the stuff Ben79 posted about it and chosed Rock, so I only set Rock repositories in both sections of the config (screenshots below, one can’t because of error)
I searched for the error message but lot of info in Ubuntu and honestly the problem didn’t seem to match with mine since they were trying to install something and I don’t, I simply can’t open it because insta crashes.
Also I can’t remmber getting an error and crash recently, I tried to install yesterday a 2gpaint or something like that and told me it wasn’t able to do it, but IIRC that happened few days ago as well and Mandragora continued to work, even yesterday it continued to work… and now I can’t open it. The Updater service is working tho, it even let me launch a Mandragora instance but then the error make Mandragora shut down
I didn’t install really much because… there is a lack of applications I am searchng for, I hope someone can give me advice on things to check or commands to gather useful information to fix this please.

Your list may be different from mine as I’m not having any problem. Now right click on each line and select “Send Signal” and under that select “Kill”. Will probably require root password. You want to clear everything or “Kill” everything in that list. Then try again.
Explanation: Nothing harmful or dangerous being done. You are simply ending or “killing” any running or left over processes related to dnf.
I could’t capture! I waited to run both and paste both but it got list in the list, BUT it was some sort of error like something didn’t exist.
After the second command which comes below I run it again and showed nothing so I am assuming it “worked” on whatever it should have to accomplish.
Checked all repos it seems and I am kind of paranoid now since it is showing Rock, Rlling AND Cooker in the list, showed more than 1 thousand lines I think.

EDT: OMG Now Mandragora WORKS!! I am so happy, OMFG these days I invested more time with Mandriva than my whole month doing my own stuff at this point but I am glad it is now working, I hope nothing else happens, I basically let Windows behind until I need it again for something specific in the other PC.
Thanks a lot, cheers, and also super useful article the one you wrote about repos, I learned lot of things from there wich now I reading this give me a hunch and checked the Repos in Mandragora
I have marked basically lots of them, even when in the previous picture I showed of the Configuration it was set to Rock… is it something I could have done with those commands or other thing?
Now if I am not wrong, something is messed up with the repos, and if I got files from Rolling or Cooker I am done… I should reinstall from scratch since there is no way to go back and some files could have been updated since at this point I am not sure, one config shows me Rock and other shows me repos from almost everything.
Notice the column at far right. This is telling you where the supposedly obsoleted packages come from and all come from Rock repos. You should always, always, always, see only one version of OM Lx in that list. If your system is Rock you should only see Rock in any list that lists things by repository.
So your results are telling you that you have a problem or problems with your system. And it is not a small problem.
Off Topic: That list of 9 packages that dnf is showing “Obsoleting Packages” is most likely an error or bug. The bug report is here. I know for a fact that Gwenview is not an obsolete package.
Tried again, rebuild did fine, nothing to show, but the check-update gave me more than 1000 lines… so… time for a clean reinstall I think.
I remember now I tried at first using Discover, I saw it as suggestion somewhere, but then didn’t work and I read later it wasn’t working really well, so I forgot about it.
Maybe I screwed it up with Discover there on the repos checker, even tho they are shown as Rock in the other options as I posted at the beginning.
Any advice? I strongly think I should re-install, also I can no solve the previous problems if the appear again and I downloaded lot of stuff for customization testing and many of them doesn’t work, so I can re-install clean and download only the stuff I know that works and want installed in the OS.
Yes. Fresh install. I’m pleased and encouraged to see that you have presence of mind enough to realize that on your on.
Realize that OpenMandriva is not Windows or Ubuntu. In OpenMandriva there are some things that have to be done the OpenMandriva way. There are also things that are general to all Linux distributions. Wish our documentation were more complete. We are working on that and several other things as fast as dozen all volunteer/part time contributors can. There is more documentation type of “How To’s” here.
As far as the learning curve there most certainly was a learning curve for Windows and/or Ubuntu or whatever other OS anyone has used. You may not remember it or for some people you may have learned when you were very young but there was a learning curve.
Another great tool for finding answers to things is to copy and paste the exact error and use that as a search term for internet search. This may work better if the command output is in English. That is what LC_ALL=C option does.
