- Focus on one Arch ?
I wonder if it might be possible to ship just x86_64, since that reduce the effort to build and maintain OM a lot, especially if the ROSA people follow this idea. Other Distros like RHEL/CentOS 7, PC-BSD, Chakra, KaOS and Sabayon already drop the 32 Bit Support, the same as applications like the Dolphin Emulator.
Since that'd mean much less packaging, testing and repair, the profit can be huge.
What think the community about that ?
- Feedback about 2014.1 pre release (12.8)
I use the current 2014.1 pre release .iso and have some Questions, mainly about the Repos.
There are just Main32 and Main32Updates preinstalled and my google search, how to add the other repos (non free, as an example) fails. (Why are the Repos for x86_64 are called "32" please ?)
It really confuse me and maybe others as well, that i get the i586 and x86_64 Versions offered, in both Architectures.
plasma-applet-icontasks is (currently) just available for i586, please can somebody add it for x86_64 as well ?
When i try to update i get this error message:
Sorry, the following packages cannot be selected:mkcomposecache-1.2.1-11-omv2014.0.i586
Seems like the i586 version is specified as dependency for the x86_64 package.
Libreoffice Math create 2 additional Category's in each Menu except the default Homerun; Eduction and Science.
I think its fine, to leave it in "Office", nobody needs (such an App) 3 times in the Menu and i like to keep my Category List lean.
I love all the other things, like the wonderful icons, the performance, my first-time silently fan, the Installer (who let me choose the username and password in the first boot sequence after the installation) and this very nice vanilla forum.
Thanks a lot, Matthias
i downloaded mandriva lx 2014 and used unetbootin to create a live usb
booted from usb, went through all the steps to go live after booting it freezes randomly (can't figure out what is causing it).
so, i tried to install to hard disk, got about to: (erase and use all), and it says reboot to apply changes. after rebooting i get a error that says : GRUB repair in progress please wait (and again it freezes).
so reformatted my usb-thumb drive (8-gig) went to terminal: sudo dd if=Downloads/OpenMandrivaLx-2014.0.x86_64.iso of=dev/sdb1 and created a live usb.
rebooted and again got the same results.
is their another way to install this or an earlier version to use?
my system specs are:
deo core 2
2 g grtz
2 gig ram
250 gig hd
