Newbie OpenMandriva user

David Locklear here, I have posted a few times on Element ( Riot ) chat forum.

I have about 20 man-hours using OpenMandriva ( mostly in Cooker, but some in 4.2 testing ), each on a separate SSD connected to Gigabyte B550 Vision D motherboard, and Ryzen 5 3600XT, and a PowerColor 5500XT.

Most of my problems are just related to not yet knowing how things in OpenMandriva work compared with with other rpm-based distros that I have used.

Today the problem in Cooker was I could not connect to the server, and my clock is way off.

Welcome @dlocklear01.

We love it when problems heal magically! :thinking:

For you and all users there is information and some documentation here. Our wiki is a work in progress but is much better than it was a year ago.

OpenMandriva is a small group of all volunteer, part-time, unpaid contributors. Any help with things like testing, QA, simply reporting problems, ect. helps. Anyone with knowledge to help with maintaining packages and especially development is welcome. As matters stand all contributors have more on our “To Do” lists than we can do.
