Proceed with installation as normal and reboot; basically that message is saying that the new nvidia module won't work until a reboot
bliss of ignorance

Thanks zerozero,

was just worrying about it because the last update did something similar, and I got blank screens after rebooting, with no fixes.

Noticing that neither skype or pipelight is being listed to be removed, only libnepomukcleaner4 libtaskmanager4abi50.  
The same happened here. I just went ahead and they were removed. Did not notice any difference afterwards, but then, I do tend to stay far away from anything with 'nepomuk' in it.
I think it's KDE's "heel of Achilles" (if that's the proper name in English for the 'weak spot') ....:-)

Just installed the latest UP and everything went flawlessly on my production SolydX64 system.
With the new 3.11.x kernel it even fixed my Logitech wireless mouse issues that came along with the 3.10.x kernel! Yay!

Hearty thanks to Schoelje and the entire testing crew for all their hard work!
Cheers,

Thanks for the hard word it seems to have been worth it. Update worked flawless on my system including the NVIDIA driver which had problems in last months up. Your contributions to this system is greatly appriciated. :D

I got the same phonon vlc error, changed the backend preference to gstreamer. I got music through amarok at least to work through vlc problems. Everything else went fine. This is my first solidk update and kde desktop. Thanks everyone for the great work and helpful forum.

I updated and everything went perfect with no incident at all. Thanks again to the SolydXK team.

Suggestion: Perhaps a graphical tool to remove old kernels? Maybe make it part of DDM in the kernel section. It's easy for me to use the command line, but a newbie wouldn't know how to clean it up.

Here is how I'd invasion the design in DDM:
1.You can uncheck unwanted kernels, but force one to be selected
2. Click Apply
3. Removes unchecked kernels, associated headers, and automatically run update-grub

[Important]

I've updated solydxk-system.
This will rename /etc/apt/preferences if it hasn't been modified by the user.
After this, more updates will be available.

Does this have to do with this when I checked this morning using apper?

And why the Nvidia one as don't run nividia?
Don't want to install unnecessary packages that will add size or number of packages to my monthly updates if possible.
As still learning what I can uninstall to trim down my KDE setup. As 500mb monthly's are still a bit much for me on a 1mb wifi connection and takes about 3 hrs to do the update.

DDM uses nvidia-detect to detect an nvidia card, and return the appropriate driver. Hence the name: nvidia-detect.

Okey Dockey thanks new what it was just didn't know if unselecting it would be fruitful.
As probably just a little sized file.

But using Apper and wonder if it is an Apper issue?

And re-booted still an issue.

doing a $ sudo dpkg--configure -a
to see if that fixes the issue.

Update: Yep fixed the issue. As I remember last night it hung at 85% installing packages and I had to reboot.
And everything appeared to have worked. But it appears I didn't get a clean and complete installing of update.

Chalk it up to User Dunce Moment.

Should have him fix it for you as is his fault? :P
Glad you got it worked out.
And yep I always try to set specific time aside specifically as updating time with zero distractions.

Internode mirror was quick. It's nice to have a mirror here in Australia.
During the update there were some warnings about conflicts with Nvidia drivers.
After reboot, no GUI.
Followed same advice from the UP 2013.11.06 09:00 UTC [PRODUCTION] [DONE] thread.

Code: Select all

rm /etc/X11/xorg.conf
rm /etc/modprobe.d/nvidia*
rm /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-nouveau.conf
apt-get purge nvidia*
reboot
Deleting those files got my GUI back.
After apt-get purge nvidia* desktop effects work again with the Nouveau driver. I don't know if I actually issued this command last month. It may be that I didn't and that's why I had the same display driver issue again. Can't remember.
I've now switched back to the Nvidia proprietary driver 319.72-1. All good now.

FWIW - I installed apper for a test and got the exact same response.

Well, not worth it for me as I do 99% of my updating through the terminal so I just uninstalled apper and re-installed the software manager and synaptic.

[EDIT]
After the upgrade, I wanted to install Skype again, but not needed:

skype:i386 is already the newest version.

I've run into this issue three or four times in my travels since adopting Linux. Not just with Solyd, and with other packages (I'm not much of a skyper). Wish I could remember the specifics. Being so new at the game, I attached no significance to it... "Hmmm, that's weird..."

Maybe something in the update removes apt's mandate to uninstall the package in question. Is apt watching that closely?

Don't know.

As the wise man said above:

...weird glitch...
