As mentioned for sound to work one needs to install a sound server when you first boot into installed system. I have been doing this:
# dnf install pipewire-pulse pavucontrol-qt
pipwire-pulse alone will not provide a volume control. If you want to use pulseaudio instead you only need to install pulseaudio server and there will be volume control. pavucontrol-qt may provide more functionality but is optional in this scenario.
@rugyada has reported that the ISO’s don’t boot in VBox. I suspect some users will have this issue. I have been able to get them to work (EFI or Legacy boot) in OM’s virtualbox-6.1.16-4 on a Lx 4.2 host machine. So I do have the x86_64 and znver1 ISOs installed in VBox now.
In the Oracle VBox v. 6.1.26 on Cooker host I can only boot the ISOs Legacy boot, EFI boot does not work.
Also I checked booting on UEFI hardware computer and that works and Calamares installer is working so booting and installation should work on most hardware.
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.
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.
If you encounter an issue with Cooker and need help:
Look for answer to your problem here or here first. The wiki is a work in progress and will get more complete over time. Also search forum and internet. Then if you don’t find anwer go to the following.
Post in Development Testing with a descriptive title. Forum help is users helping other users.
For more serious or technical issues post a bug report in OpenMandriva issue tracker. Any issue that needs help from developers needs to go here.
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.
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:
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.
First post updated with new ISO’s 2020-11-26, also the post was edited to remove some issues that have since been corrected. Yeah, we keep fixing things when we can where we can. We are sure there will be more things that come up before final release of OM Lx 4.2. We will do our best to correct anything reported.
If you find any problem it is best to file a bug report . Alternatively you could open a new thread in Development Testing forum.
