Re: Latest update forces t-bird & firefox

I found the problem, but I don't know what the best solution is. For that, I leave this open for suggestions. The problem is that part of the latest upgrade of solydk-systems-adjustments-9 added recommends for firefox-solydxk-adjustments and thunderbird-solydxk-adjustments. These two adjustments ins...

Re: Latest update forces t-bird & firefox

I may have found the solution to the problem, though I have no idea why it never showed up before. In Synaptic [settings/preferences/general] there is a setting under Marking Changes: "consider recommended packages as dependencies". The default setting (I've never changed it) is "selected". With tha...

Re: Latest update forces t-bird & firefox

This problem wouldn't quite be as bothersome except the "atypical" installation has existed for at least six months when I removed t-bird from the system. So I would think it should have shown up with the next solyd updates. The biggest problem that I see with this scenario is if a program such as t...

Re: Latest update forces t-bird & firefox

Check that you don't have anything firefox or thunderbird related on your system: Done - nothing found on my system. BTW - it has been further back than just recent that I removed t-bird - probably early 2018, I would think this problem would have occurred before. I don't recall doing anything majo...

Re: Latest update forces t-bird & firefox

Arjen - The upgrade worked okay when invoked by: apt upgrade --no-install-recommends Firefox has been removed from my system for a very long time and t-bird has been recently removed. I have not experienced any problem like this before with prior upgrades to the solydk files. This is a bit bothersom...

Re: Latest update forces t-bird & firefox

No change in the results - still have the attempted install of firefox and thunderbird. I did not invoke "apt upgrade --no-install-recommends" as initially suggested. Should that still be done? Konsole file is as follows: jim@solydxk:~$ sudo apt purge firefox* thunderbird* [sudo] password for jim: R...

Latest update forces t-bird & firefox {closed}

Okay .... how do I get out of this one. Using Synaptic, this morning's update for s-system-adjustments-9, s-system & s-welcome are forcing installation of firefox and thunderbird onto my system. I do not want those programs as part of my SolydK installation. If I lock the updates at the prior versio...

Updating to 201807 {closed}

The thought just occurred to me ....

I have SolydK -9 that was installed in 2017 when -9 came out and have kept current with updates as they are made available.
Is there anything to be gained by installing 201807? IOW is there anything in 201807 that I might be missing?

Re: Samba Daemon crash after update {resolved}

We can't purge samba from our systems because it is indeed a mount point (for tmpfs). I'm not so sure that was the case. I believe part of the error message was referring to it as a locked directory and I used: sudo chown -R root /var/log/samba After that, the install of samba went fine. Come to th...

Re: Samba Daemon crash after update

At this point, I am going to have to call this issue resolved. So far, the services have been running as they should and no errors have been occuring with recent updates (I do have a gtk message that according to debian is a gtk2 issue that is of little consequence). To this day I have no idea what ...

Re: Sub-menu icons don't "stick"

There may be an easier way, but I ended up going into /home/xxx/.local/share/desktop-directories and editing each of the directory files changing "Icon" from the default "package" to the name of the icon of choice for that directory. A tedious process to say the least, but it worked. Too bad it coul...

Re: Samba Daemon crash after update

Glad to see that you found the problem in your system. Apparently, you have other users on your system and anything can happen - most often quite innocently. Still don't know the source of my problems. I will always wonder if it came in one of the early updates done as a part of the installation pro...

Re: Samba Daemon crash after update - now on another machine too

Maybe a search for the 1001 or 1002 user in /var/log/messages?

BTW - I ran the three update packages today and while they each had a line of "half-installed" and/or "half-configured", the last line for each package was "installed". Maybe that part is fixed?

Re: Samba Daemon crash after update - now on another machine too

Now this one I really don't understand. sudo chmod 755 /var/lib/samba/private/msg.sock Kurotsugi suggested a while back that 755 should be the correct permissions which makes sense to me. BUT when I set it to 755, the daemon.log after bootup says that the permissions should be 700 and nmdb.service, ...

Re: Samba Daemon crash after update - now on another machine too

I'm more interested why samba fails this way. There is something wrong with the conf. I agree,but where. I also wonder why msg.sock changes it's permissions and if that is what is effecting the samba installations. I found very few references to the problem online and nearly all were were nearly te...

Re: Samba Daemon crash after update - now on another machine too

And it looks like mine has stabilized. Haveged, smbd and nmbd services are all running, samba.service is shut down, but probably because I don't have a need for it to be active. I was looking at dpkg.log after the 125 files installed and everything that I looked at had a line for "half-configured" a...

Re: Samba Daemon crash after update

I couldn't delete the directory because it was locked. Because of that any attempts to reinstall samba would fail. I tried a number of online suggestions to unlock the folder, but the one that I found to work was to reset the ownership of the folder with "sudo chown -R root samba" (while in /var/log...
