yep, better safe than sorry with the nvidia reinstallation but this time it was already rebuilt for the new kernel

Not sure if this is the right place to post this but after the 2014-1-15 update, K3b still gives me an input/output error at 96% (@ 8x with 16x DVD-R and 16x writer), the mouse cursor still stays above the screensaver. Keep in mind I still haven't re-installed, this install is still a little messed up (by me) and I still have to test K3b at a lower write speed, lowering the write speed has worked in the past with other distros I'v had this issue with.

This next issue is quite common in Debian/Ubuntu based systems employing KDE, pre-update, the global main sound volume was independent of System Settings/App & Sys Notifications/Manage Notifications/Player Settings/Use the KDE sound system (volume level), what happens is, if a system notification sound event occurs, it changes the global volume to what is set in the aforementioned. My workaround is to set the aforementioned to the your desired standard global volume level.

Update: K3b not working @ 4x and now when I insert a blank DVD, it's not recognized by Device Notifier, and after the K3b test, my DVD drive eject is locked (the physical button on the drive itself), have to reboot to open the tray to insert a disk.

Dr G
that happens doing the January UP?
share the output of

Code: Select all
cat /etc/apt/preferences
thinkpad geoffrey # cat /etc/apt/preferences
Package: *
Pin: release o=solydxk
Pin-Priority: 700

Package: *
Pin: origin packages.solydxk.nl
Pin-Priority: 700

Package: *
Pin: release o=Debian
Pin-Priority: 500


Methinks I bolloxed this install quite well. And yes, this is after the latest update, with no prior updates skipped.

I can confirm the double UM icon in the tray.
No code has been changed in UM. So, I suspect that something changed in the used libraries (perhaps even the above libc6 issue).
However, investigating this is of little use, as I'm in the last phase of testing the new UM, which is a total rework of the UM.
[EDIT]
Did the same on another system, also running SolydK64, but not my development environment, and all went without a hitch. The libc6 update seems unrelated. I'm baffled.

For anyone with an /etc/apt/preferences file, try:

Code: Select all

sudo mv /etc/apt/preferences /etc/apt/preferences.bak
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get -f install
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Firewall gui bug or working as advertised?

I noticed after the SolydK update the firewall gui settings appear to be disabled. When enabling though the gui, it prompts root access to make changes, but settings disappear when closing and reopening. Is this how it's supposed to work? Checking the firewall status in terminal shows that it enabled with default settings.

On another note, the output of "sudo ufw status verbose" is rather generic. If anyone knows a more robust command I can use to verify IPv6 support is enabled, it'd be much appreciated.

Thanks :)

I just checked my firewall status and I can confirm your comments and I'm using SolydX.

regarding the preferences file: you should remove it if it hasn't been altered by you with custom apt-pinnings;
so if it looks like

Code: Select all

Package: *
Pin: release o=solydxk
Pin-Priority: 700

Package: *
Pin: origin packages.solydxk.com
Pin-Priority: 700

Package: *
Pin: release o=Debian
Pin-Priority: 500
follow Schoelje post above

Code: Select all

sudo mv /etc/apt/preferences /etc/apt/preferences.bak
if you altered it, well, you know what you are doing :lol: but at least both solydxk entries should be "downgraded" to 500

That did it! Thanks.

This means I am only left with the puzzle of how/when I changed the preferences. <sigh> Thought I learned this lesson back when running LMDE: "Thou shalt not play with your production system!"

Johan Grip has been so kind to mirror our repositories.
His server is located in Great Britain.

If you want to switch to this mirror, you can simply select it in the preferences window of the Update Manager, or if you prefer the terminal:

Code: Select all

deb http://solydxk.ogun.org/packages/production/ solydxk main upstream import kdenext
deb http://solydxk.ogun.org/debian/production testing main contrib non-free
deb http://solydxk.ogun.org/debian/production/multimedia testing main non-free
All mirrors have been updated to the latest Update Pack (2014.01.15).
So, those who are using one of our mirrors can now safely upgrade their system.

Just installed UP 2014.01.15 on my SolydX 386 system and it went very smoothly so my thanks go to all concerned.

I had previously edited my /etc/pam.d/common-session to change default umask from 022 to 002 so I expected this to be flagged up during the upgrade.

The only unexpected warning was that /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf had changed with the dilemma (previously discussed) of keep or replace. The new version seems to have more in it than the original version (mostly commented out!) but I am unsure of how much configuration of this file has been done by the SolydX developers and is therefore necessary. Would upgrading this file to the new default bork the system?

May I suggest that the upgrade notes include a recommended option for this file. p.s. I chose "keep". ;)

In the UP info page (http://debian.solydxk.nl/production/update-pack.html)
It says:
Read this whether you update with the Update Manager, or terminal.

Configuration files
You might be asked to replace '/etc/init.d/networking', and '/etc/samba/smb.conf'. It is recommended to keep these files.
So, yes, "keep" is good for other config files as well :)

Unfortunately the update process broke.
UM downloaded every package. A few seconds after it started installing, this message appeared and the process stopped.
oksnapshot5.jpg
I had to click Close and from that moment no way to resume/restart the UM, start a Firefox session (I was going to write it here immediately) or open the snapshot that I've created (with the stamp key).

I tried to log out and log in again, but was not possible and the view returned always to the login screen. In safemode as well.
I've tried to restart solydk and the result was just a black screen. I had to force the shut down.

Now I'm writing from another partition/OS.

Any help is really appreciated! :shock:

start SolydK, you will get to that black screen most probably;
do Ctrl+Alt+F1 key combination
this should get you into tty1
log in with your username and password
now (if until here all went ok)

Code: Select all

su

Code: Select all

apt-get -f install

Code: Select all

apt-get dist-upgrade

Code: Select all

reboot
i hope this will do it

Thank you very much zerozero. ;)
I have spent a terrible half an hour, but following your steps (via recovery mode, ctrl+alt+F1 didn't work) now I'm back again. :D
What is happened?

Just another strange thing.
The update is complete, but:

That's because UM couldn't finish the upgrade.
It doesn't harm your system, but if you would like to show the proper version:

Code: Select all

su
echo "2014.01.15" >> /usr/lib/solydxk/updatemanager/up.hist

we are trying to figure this out too. it's not the first report we have with this issue but unfortunately we couldn't (yet) replicate it.
We have to thank TeaSwigger for outlining the correct process to solve this.
