New Rock/OMLx 4.3 snapshot ISOs (Fixes bug 2657)

Monday 11 April 2022

These are a snapshot of Rock/OMLx 4.3 repositories with about 120+ upgraded packages plus about 10 new packages installed as dependencies. These are mostly bug fixes and security upgrades. People wanting to do a fresh install may use these snapshots thereby avoiding needing these updates.

There is bug with our original OMLx 4.3 ISOs that would affect only people installing in VirtualBox and doing so using EFI boot option. These ISOs have a "workaround" fix for that. That bug report is here.

More information in this OpenMandriva Support Forum article.

Rolling repos sync with Cooker (2022/01/13)

Thursday 13 January 2022

Important for Rolling Users

Hard working OM Cooker devs are at work copying Cooker repos to Rolling repos. We do this when Cooker devs believe we are at a good point for stability and bug fixing. There have been a huge amont of bugs fixed. Especially for KDE or other desktop packages it is best to wait for the entire process to complete to avoid problems.

Do not upgrade your Rolling system while this is in progress.You need to wait until copying cooker repos to rolling repos is finished. This process takes some time so we all need to patient.

Important: We will inform users here in this forum when it is safe again to upgrade. Also we’ll detail any extra steps that may be needed.
