Note: Both ISO’s worked on hardware, znver1 works in VBox. To install x86_64 in VBox I had to keep restarting sddm.service until desktop worked. x86_64 installed system in VBox requires downgrade of virtualbox-guest-additions to version 6.1.6. YMMV. See bug reports in next post.

The most recent Cooker ISO’s are:

Cooker ISO x86_64 3304

Cooker ISO znver1 3303

Cooker is OpenMandriva development platform. As such it is where developers do some of their work. This work can and does lead to things being broken sometimes. If you can’t handle this Cooker is not for you. If you don’t like problem solving and are not comfortable with the command line don’t use Cooker.

Cooker users: Always maintain another stable operating system on another partition or elsewhere for production work.

Today the workaround is working again. Downgrade ‘lib64qt5network5’ to ‘lib64qt5network5-5.15.0-0.beta1.1’. And desktop mostly is working.

Developers obviously are working on this but the “real” problem is elusive at present. It is thought to be related to sqlite. But also apparently has something to do with qt5 or relationship between splite and qt5.

As of the latest ISO’s on 2020-03-10 (# 3198 and 3199) most of the plasmashell and desktop issues are resolved. The only issue I am aware of at present is that you still can not edit the menu panel. You can edit Application menu just not the menu panel at the bottom of your desktop.

Post-edit: Graphic rendering for OM-Welcome and OM-Control-Center is still borked. There is supposed to be a fix in upcoming QT WebEngine packages.

First three posts updated today 2020-04-29.

First 2 posts updated 2020-06-20.

Post-edit: Second post with bug list edited 2020-06-21 to remove:

Dolphin crash at launch (Cooker)

The bug report is now RESOLVED/FIXED.

Progress continues on development for OM Lx 4.1 Alpha release. These ISO’s will give anyone interested a very good snapshot of where development stands at this time.

For the short term problems persist for most everyone trying to use Cooker as a VBox host system. There are also problems with latest versions of virtualbox-guest-additions for guest machines. Developers are of both issues and are working on this and hope to resolve this soon.

There are 2 new ISO’s built without VirtualBox packages virtualbox-guest-additions and x11-driver-video-vbox. User would likely want to add to VBox guests the 6.1.6 versions of these package from the link here.

These are the most recent Cooker ISO’s as of 2020-07-11:

Cooker x86_64 ISO 3341

Cooker znver1 ISO 3346

Post-edit: I forgot to state that I did test both ISO’s in VirtualBox and on hardware. My current Cooker hardware systems are installed from these ISO’s on 2 computers. Tested to boot, install, and reboot in to installed operating system.
