Just installed on hard drive last 2380.
Some commentaries :
Launch live burned DVD:
Everything fine …except the usual problem with OMV that no internet conexion is available in the end of launch process…
This problem is lasting from the very first versions of OMLX3, both on my PC and my wife’s.
The conexion exists but is not available.
A solution is to disconnect the ethernet cable before booting the PC …and reconnect it when on the final desktop.
On OMlx3, using “drak tools” it was posible to fix definitively the thing, I don’t know to-day without “drakconf tools”, if it will be posible…
Install on hard disk from the live session :
a- First message in Calamares : “Your equipment is not conected to internet, you will not …” => I know, I know…
b- Sugestion : Would it be posible to add a game of cards (Kpatience for instance) in the basic version, so that we can play cards while the systen is being installed? 15 minutes (no SSD here) is a long time…
c. Calamares OK with new language and keyboard options. Of course “SWAP/NO SWAP” does not appear when “personal partionning” is chosen.
d. In the very end of install, new message of calamares: “THE INSTALL HAS FAILED !
External command has not finished. Command “/usr/bin/calamares-post-script” has not finished within 30 seconds. There is a exit from the command.”
=> I gave time, nothing changed, but in fact the install was absolutely OK!
e. There is no log of calamares in /var/log! (refering point “d” above? )
f. After using the distrib 5 minutes, when everything seemed to work perfectly => FREEZE COMPLETE OF THE SCREEN! This is a recurrent problem I usually encounter when using NOUVEAU with my Nvidia card! Nothing to do but RESET.
=> The problem I see is that with previous alfa pre-version (2237 if I remember well), I had no posibility at all to finish install Nvidia driver (driver present in repos and installed with dnf)! …There was a time… we had “drakconf” and “XFdrake” to try to fix the thing …but to day, what? …!
The 2280 works quite well.
Looks like all other Plasma5 distribs (no comment).
Calamares needs a bit of tuning in the end.
The new processes (DNF - no more drakconf tools - no more rpm) did not convince me at all.
If the problem of freezes with Nouveau is not due to OMV, the ones of not beeing able to install Nvidia driver, as well as the non availability at boot of internet conexion doesn’t happen with other distrib I use (ROSA, MINT, FEDORA, SUSE).
