Note: ISO’s boot on hardware, installed znver1 on hardware.

The most recent Cooker ISO’s are:

x86_64: Show - Product PLASMA+SDDM+x86_64 iso - Platform cooker - ABF

znver1: Show - Product PLASMA+SDDM+znver1 iso - Platform cooker - ABF

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.

There is a known issue in Cooker currently with plasma shell crashes. The temporary workaround is to downgrade lib64qt5network5 from ‘lib64qt5network5-5.15.0-0.beta1.2’ to ‘lib64qt5network5-5.15.0-0.beta1.1’.

If you have a working Cooker system to avoid this upgrade with ‘–exclude=lib64qt5network5’. But remember this is a temporary situation and the “real” issue and fix may not have been identified yet.


For x86_64 you can download ‘lib64qt5network5-5.15.0-0.beta1.1’ here.

For znver1 here.

The only way to keep up with things like this in Cooker is on IRC @ Freenode channel #openmandriva-cooker.

Well something else is wrong in Cooker today. I updated VBox VM as described and we’re back to black screen with mouse and cursor and otherwise unresponsive desktop.

Thank you for sharing the links and taking time to always answer my questions
Yepp. i noticed the black screen too. The system booted up but it ended up in a black screen ;-(
So i ll have to wait or maybe ill try the rolling version

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.
