Here we have the Alpha milestone of OpenMandriva Lx 4.2 release cycle.
Warning: This is an alpha product, and it is not aimed to be used in a production environment.
Alpha release is primarily for testing and bug squashing. Testing is a critical step during development as all bug fixing will take place during this lapse of time.
Therefore we exhort all OpenMandriva users to test our system and report any issue you may find at our forum or at Github Issues.
You can get in touch real time with our developers at IRC channel #openmandriva-cooker on freenode.
Please note development releases ’Update channel’ is set to Rolling by default.
The best adviced command to upgrade Rolling system is:
$ sudo dnf clean all ; sudo dnf --allowerasing distro-sync
