It's looking good here.
I wondered that as well Schoelje, just refreshed and had an update to flash plugin which went through all okay. When finished Update Manager Info still blank.

Will see how it behaves with time.

i can replicate davo's issue
- if i open the information button first time it displays correctly
- if i close the window in the close button and try to open it again comes up blank (and with a different shape)
- closing the information window in the close button doesn't show this behaviour

Oh that, that's a GTK issue, something about not correctly refreshing the window after hiding, and one of the many reasons I want to rebuild UM. Do something like that with the Preferences window, and UM crashes!

Same on my end. I am running SolydK 64bit with the latest updates. However, this seems to be hitting most Debian Jessie releases now. http://productforums.google.com/forum/# ... ZzFG6or9Tw

I have sent a bug report to the Debian developers. However, I encourage others who have this problem to do the same if they can because I am not sure if they received my bug report.
The link realityDroid posted about the Google-talkplugin breakage mentioned reverting back to a previous version of the "libcairo2" package to make things work again. Would it be possible to put a previous version of libcairo2 in our repo so we can check it out? I believe the previous version which worked in SolydK was 1.12.14-4

unless you feel adventurous (or have a solid backup) i wouldn't recommend downgrading libcairo2.
it's a corner-stone lib in the system and might break more than it fixes.

furthermore the downgrade/upgrade is not clean

I messed up that machine (not solving the log-in problem => I couldn't make it automatic), so I decided to install fresh the system (SolydX 32) with the last ISO.
The internet connection (ethernet) worked fine in the live session, but not in the installed system :shock: Any clues, please!?
I can do nothing now, since DDM, update, etc., need internet connection.
I am searching my older DVDs to install the old one, trying to solve this... somehow. But it would be much better, more elegant and efficient, to solve this issue 8-)

you have an interesting kernel history here
1. you have the latest 3.10.2 and 3.10.3 installed
2. you have several non-debian kernel also installed (or partially removed)

Code: Select all

rc  linux-image-3.9.10.15072013            001                            i386         Linux kernel binary image for version 3.9.10.15072013
rc  linux-image-3.9.6.16072013             001                            i386         Linux kernel binary image for version 3.9.6.16072013
ii  linux-image-3.9.6.18072013             001                            i386         Linux kernel binary image for version 3.9.6.18072013
ii  linux-image-3.9.6.31072013             001                            i386         Linux kernel binary image for version 3.9.6.31072013
3. the kernel that you are booting is one of this

Code: Select all

Linux <some_server_name> 3.9.6.31072013 #1 Wed Jul 31 13:19:58 BST 2013 i686 GNU/Linux
4. none of these 4 kernels have the corresponding headers

a) from where and how did you installed them? i can't find them :lol: are they self-compiled?
b) try to run sudo update-grub in this system and if you have another install controlling the mbr run it in there as well (after this you should have the option to boot the 3.10.2 and 3.10.3 in grub

UP 2013.10.06 - Youtube audio no longer working (Solved)

Postby genea » 08 Oct 2013 20:22

Ok people, help! I've done the latest update on three computers, two 32bit systems and a 64bit. The audio was muted in youtube on all of them. On the 32bit machines simply enabling audio worked.

However, on the 64bit I still have no audio. It is working in Opera but not Firefox. All other sound is working fine. I've looked at alsamixer, pulseaudio volume control and kmix settings. Everything appears normal.

Open pulseaudio volume control while tryinging to play something on youtube.
Chech the Playback tab. You should see a slider pulsing for your ALSA plug-in.
If it is, look on the right side for a window that shows the selected output. Make sure that the right one is selected.
I had HDMI selected there instead of Analog Stereo.
Opera has a seperate ALSA plug-in container, so that one may be right while the other is not.
I went around and around with this because it looked like everything was right, except for that one tab in pulseaudio volume control.

zerozero; - no, looking at the lists I have the Linux headers for the 3,10.* kernel versions but not the linux-image files installed! I don't know how the image files didn't install on recent updates (through the normal update tool). The 3.9....<somedate> files were compiled and installed from packages using the usual debian tools for compiling the kernel - I did this to cut out the NSA stuff and to remove unused functions like bluetooth and ReiserFS support.

What I'd *like* to end up with is the choice between my own installed kernel and the current SolydX kernel, with the SolydX kernel updating when new versions are released through the SolydX tool.

Thanks for the responses and the interest!

the apt/preferences is fine; the sources.list also ;) there's a sid source code line in there that you surely are aware and take the necessary precautions whenever you need to enable the regular sid repo.

of course is /var/log/apt/history.log :) anyway you found it.

after looking at it for some time the only reasonable explanation i can find is that the first dist-upgrade was done when the mirror was not fully synced, otherwise the 2nd dist-upgrade (about an hour after) wouldn't make any sense (and not in the dimension it had).
without the mirror synced some packages remained at the older version (see that the version of kde-window-manager to be removed is 4.11.1) and that made some packages/lib uninstallable.
