I finally managed to download a copy from your direct link and install that. There were 389 updates and this time it rebooted to a desktop. Thereafter though my wifi had disappeared (no connections available) so I connected using a cable and searched for anything network related via the package manager and also installed LibreOffice. This took almost another hour with various packages being cycled in the package manager which is hardly intuitive to follow. The result was still no wifi despite trying a couple of dongles in addition to the built in card. Google Chrome I installed OK from a downloaded .rpm package but trying Slack using the same method threw up a package conflict. I keep a copy of a terminal command to install Slack ignoring dependencies but when I tried to open it I discovered LibreOffice does not launch. From terminal it gave a ‘depreciated’ error with no ‘Mokka’ theme available. Unfortunately at this point I gave up.
I guess in any case I might have more luck with the most recently published image. I’ll leave the link for this open on a spare machine for the required number of hours and just hope the file is intact once it gets here.
Out of interest the only two programs I can’t live without for work are Google Chrome and the Slack desktop. Hopefully both these can be installed on openmamba?
Thanks for the suggestion but it made no difference.
I did find a torrent for ‘openmamba-diskimg-livecd-en-snapshot-20210630.x86_64.img’ which I installed but there were 367 updates and after that despite several attempts it would not reboot to a desktop, giving different errors each time.
