Ok, so we have a candidate ISO for Alpha1 release! :tada:

Plasma ISO build ID 2348

Please test and report any issue you may find, here at forum or at our bug tracking system
Get the party started! :wink:


OM Lx 3.03/4.0 installation with a Intel Optane device
Are there new builds of OpenMandrivaLx.3.03-PLASMA.x86_64.iso?
(rugyada) #2

Please have also a look to checklist HERE.


(Ben Bullard) #3

Testing is mandatory for all OpenMandriva users. All bug fixing will take place during development.

Test it now, fix it now, or else!


(Ben Bullard) #4

For something new and freaking different there is a new package manager to try called dnfdragora that is more or less similar to rpmdrake kind of a little bit.

First install in VBox or on hardware ISO 2348 then update it:

# dnf --refresh upgrade

Then do this:

# dnf install python-yaml lib64yui-mga8-qt dnfdragora

Then go to Application Launcher>Tools>System Tools>Install and Remove Software and play/test until you are exhausted.

There is a utility in dnfdragora to manage repositories. Remember that for now we’re using Cooker repos. That means there is no reason to enable updates repos you only need “release” repos. For more on repos for Cooker see this (Or else!). Also the 4.0 repos won’t work at all and can be disabled.

Fixed here:


#6

Are OMV 4.0 users going to count on tools like MCC, OM-Welcome, and others like what are available at previous releases?


(rugyada) #7

Yes om-wecome (work in progress), no mcc.

PS>
om-cc also work in progress btw.


(Ben Bullard) #8

It’s always a good idea to read the Release Notes.


(rugyada) #9

The HERE is the link to our wiki

but we are aware it’s suffering of some slow in loading pages lately :neutral_face:

For everyone’s convenience I’ll copy/paste the Checklist here below.

  1. Does iso burns on usb stick
  2. Does the grub/boot screen appears
  3. Does the options in grub/boot screen works
  4. Does ISO boot to multi-user.target
  5. Does ISO boot to graphical.target
  6. Does autologin for live user works
  7. Does default graphical desktop shows after autologin
  8. Does default graphical desktop is useable (basics, like menu, file manager, web browser)
  9. Does ISO boot in VirtualBox
  10. Does ISO install in VirtualBox

So you can do the same and provide your feedbacks.

.
Example:

  • Does iso burns on usb stick - YES
  • Does the grub/boot screen appears - YES
  • Does the options in grub/boot screen works - NO (+ more info)

etc.
Well just an example, you got it :wink:

  1. Does iso burns on usb stick >>> Yes
  2. Does the grub/boot screen appears >>> Yes
  3. Does the options in grub/boot screen works >>> Yes, but, if default boots graphically then usually “Boot in Basic Graphic Mode” won’t. We can hope the visa versa is also true but I don’t know how to test that.
  4. Does ISO boot to multi-user.target >>> No (I used multi-user.target as boot parameter, In VBox did not boot, on hardware boots to graphical target) (If you use systemd.unit=multi-user.target then it will boot to multi-user.target) (I think things like this need to be exact for users to understand.)
  5. Does ISO boot to graphical.target >>> Post-edit: So far my attempts to boot with systemd.unit=graphical.target fail. So this may end up a really odd No.
  6. Does autologin for live user works >>> Yes
  7. Does default graphical desktop shows after autologin >>> Yes
  8. Does default graphical desktop is useable (basics, like menu, file manager, web browser) >>> Yes
  9. Does ISO boot in VirtualBox >>> Yes Post-edit: But (If I boot with no tricks in VBox it takes 3 minutes) (Tricks to make it boot sooner are like pressing host key+F2 then hostkey+F1 or pressing ESC)
  10. Does ISO install in VirtualBox >>> Post-edit: Yes installs in VBox and on Hardware. As noted above there is some kind of glitch in booting that requires either a ‘trick’ or a few minutes. For a first Alpha working well on both.

Not able to download OM LX 4.0 from https://abf.openmandriva.org/platforms/cooker/products/4/product_build_lists/2348. Don’t know why. Is there an alternative link to download it?


(rugyada) #12

At the moment not, but please try again later or tomorrow as someone had issue too (and someone not, like me). It may work by luck :grin:


(Ben Bullard) #13

How are you downloading?

Maybe try from command line:

$ aria2c http://file-store.openmandriva.org/api/v1/file_stores/a9f4ac50a605995d43e80b320963aee6aa217eba

Post-edit: I just tried the above here and it downloaded correctly:

[ben79@ben79-pc Downloads]$ ls -lh
total 2.3G
-rw-rw-r-- 1 ben79 ben79 2.3G Dec 22 20:51 OpenMandrivaLx.4.0-alpha.20181219-plasma.x86_64.iso

[ben79@ben79-pc Downloads]$ sha1sum -c OpenMandrivaLx.4.0-alpha.20181219-plasma.x86_64.iso.sha1sum
OpenMandrivaLx.4.0-alpha.20181219-plasma.x86_64.iso: OK

[ben79@ben79-pc Downloads]$ md5sum -c OpenMandrivaLx.4.0-alpha.20181219-plasma.x86_64.iso.md5sum
OpenMandrivaLx.4.0-alpha.20181219-plasma.x86_64.iso: OK

#14

Similar problem then.

I’ve tried with aria2c -c file but it just kept restarting download from the beginning

Now trying wget -c file …


#15

A little better with wget but no luck. After downloading 1.5GB or more I always get a
reading error at byte ...


(rugyada) #16

@adelson.oliveira devs are at work to fix the problem.


(rugyada) #17

@adelson.oliveira now you’ll be able to dowload the ISO at SourceForge :wink:


#18

Just downloaded and booted in live mode and there are already 476 packages to update, including the kernel itself!

It is beautiful, and it seems some graphical issues have been solved although OM LX 4.0 errata still have notes on this. In fact, OM LX 3.03 live CD required blacklisting nouveau modules (errata 3.03 and 4.0) to boot on this hybrid graphic laptop and now everything goes simply fine without any boot editing. Also, a touchpad issue related to this mobo (GI5CN5E) seems to be over too.

Notice that primary settings on localization, keyboards, etc, doesn`t appear at this live version, will it be included in next releases?

Another question, if I install this alpha release will I have to do a fresh installation of the final release?

Thanks everybody for this release.


#19

OM LX 4.0 live CD seems to freeze upon rebooting …


(Giorgio) #20

Downloaded from SourceForge and tried in live mode only.

Does iso burns on usb stick → YES
Does the grub/boot screen appears → YES
Does the options in grub/boot screen works → Installation don’t works
Does ISO boot to multi-user.target → what it means ?
Does ISO boot to graphical.target → what it means ?
Does autologin for live user works → how is possible autologin using live?
Does default graphical desktop is useable (basics, like menu, file manager, web browser)→ YES. More detail: menu, file manager, Firefox works.
I don’t find localization for keyboard but I think it’s normal in alpha candidate.
