Hey Orbmiser. Guess what was my first thought when I read your report. Waiting for pulse? Of course. What soundcard are you using? Built-in or external?

BTW, realtime with pulse? That's not a very good thing.
This likely means that your installation is broken. -Mr Pixbuf.

Updating the rest of my VMs turned into a disaster because of this.
I've gone back to kernel 3.14 (good thing I still had a local mirror of the security repo).
Now to try to get the VMs back to a useable state (one is borked beyond repair)...

Reminder for the next update pack testing session: test updating VMs after the host has been updated. :roll:

ok, now

Code: Select all

systemctl status rtkit-daemon.service

the output should give (in the last line, probably) the process number, like this
zerozero@home ~ $ systemctl status fancontrol.service
● fancontrol.service - fan speed regulator
Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/fancontrol.service; enabled)
Active: failed (Result: exit-code) since Wed 2014-10-15 15:22:15 BST; 1 day 2h ago
Docs: man:fancontrol(8)
man:pwmconfig(8)
Process: 1027 ExecStartPre=/usr/sbin/fancontrol --check (code=exited, status=1/FAILURE)
zerozero@home ~ $

at this point try

Code: Select all

sudo journalctl -b _PID=<NUMBER>

it might give us some hints about what is wrong.
again with my example

Code: Select all

zerozero@home ~ $ sudo journalctl -b _PID=1027
[sudo] password for zerozero:

I've also had problems with rtkit, had this in the logs:

systemd[...]: Failed at step NAMESPACE spawning /usr/lib/rtkit/rtkit-daemon: Operation not permitted

Some googling led me to this: https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugrepo ... bug=754076

After upgrading to UP 2014.10.15, /tmp is a link to /var/tmp and that causes some problems.

EDIT 3: Explained by zerozero here: viewtopic.php?f=32&t=4853&start=60#p45961

I deleted the link an recreated /tmp as a directory, after reboot rtkit started without issues.

It solved some strange hangs/timeouts too, on a freshly booted machine it took15 seconds after clicking Kickoff until it popped up.

Every kernel since would cause my display not to wake back up after closing the lid. The 3.16-2 is the first kernel since that allows my display to wake when I close the lid. So that is a plus.

SolydK 32-Bit

Now to what is broken.

First, I have the display brightness bar permanently displayed on my screen at 100%, regardless of what brightness setting I am using. It also does not change when I change the brightness. I am using the Intel 2:2.21.15-2+b2 graphics driver. Update: As I was typing the rest of this, about 8 minutes after boot, the brightness slider went away. I will come edit this post with details after I submit it and reboot because I don't want to lose all this in case it is gone for good or is just temporary.

Second, I tried to take a screenshot of this, and noticed that the PrintScreen key does not launch the screenshot tool.

Third, If I launch any key combo using the Super (Windows) Key, the system becomes completely unresponsive, requiring me to hold the power button to power down.

Here is my hardware info for reference:

Any help would be appreciated.

Edit: As mentioned in my update earlier, about 8 minutes after boot, the brightness bar went away. When that happened, everything else worked normally. I rebooted the system, and the brightness bar is back, and the odd behavior with it--no screenshots, Super key locks up the system, etc. I'm sure I can wait it out and it will go to normal again, but I shouldn't have to wait 8 minutes after boot to use the system. So, if anyone has any thoughts as to what could be causing this, I'm all ears. I can post any details you need.

Edit 2: I have noticed that immediately after the Brightness bar goes away and normal behavior resumes, my touchpad driver loads into the system tray, so it would indicate that it is hanging somewhere in the startup process for whatever immediately precedes the touchpad loading.


Any ideas? It is really frustrating having to wait ten minutes before my system is usable after boot, and walking on eggshells in those first ten minutes, because if I touch the wrong key or right click the wrong place I have to hard reset the system and start again. It isn't kernel related as I can boot into the older kernels and it still happens. I don't know what to do here, but something in this UP has caused this fragile extended boot behavior. Once the screen brightness bar goes away, the system becomes perfectly stable. I can't see anything unusual happening in dmesg around the time it suddenly starts to work either. I don't know what else to look for. I would appreciate some guidance. The UP completed with no errors of any kind (or if it did, it didn't display them in the console long enough to read them). I really don't want to have to wipe my production system just to solve this problem. Thanks.

we need to check a couple things:

1. are the sources.list correct and the UP was installed without errors?

3. do you have any special power management settings enabled?
the buggy behaviour persists if you reset them to defaults?

I do not believe I have modified anything related to power settings. Anything in particular I should check? This just began after this UP. All previous UPs have installed without issue, though as I mentioned, I had to stay on the 3.11-2 kernel because all of the newer kernels up until this UP's kernel would cause my screen not to wake when I reopened the lid of my laptop.

It only is unstable for the first ten minutes while the screen brightness bar is at 100% and stuck on the screen. After that goes away, my mouse driver loads, the rest of the system seems to load and everything becomes rock stable. This happens if I boot with either the new kernel or the old 3.11-2 kernel, so it doesn't seem to be kernel related. Hopefully you can make some sense of this. I appreciate your help.

Re: UP 2014.10.15

Postby dali » 16 Oct 2014 17:40

I hade some other issues as well, not sure if they are related to UP 2014.10.15: my (only) network card was named eth1. Checked a machine that hadn't been upgraded to UP 2014.10.15 and it too had eth1.

Turns out eth0 in /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules is configured to be an Intel e1000 card:

# PCI device 0x8086:0x100e (e1000)
SUBSYSTEM=="net", ACTION=="add", DRIVERS=="?*", ATTR{address}=="08:00:27:52:fe:13", ATTR{dev_id}=="0x0", ATTR{type}=="1", KERNEL=="eth*", NAME="eth0"

The same NIC is in the config on all my machines so it has to be from the installation media.

Worked around it by removing the Intel e1000 lines and changed the config for my real NIC from eth1 to eth0 in the same file.

Also had to remove eth0 completely from /etc/network/interfaces, Network Manager didn't manage it otherwise.

I boldly upgrade my main PC at work, saw some disturbing messages, but everything was fine, in the end.

It sounds like a kernel issue.
I googled for "Mobile GM965/GL960 Integrated Graphics Controller" and found these to be interesting:
https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=75723
workaround:
https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=332784#c3
Some people booted the old kernel to get it all working again.


Thanks, but that was the first thing that I tried. I actually have not been able to run any kernel newer than 3.11-2 because of graphics card issues, so for the last 3 UPs I have always booted with the older kernel. Whenever I would close the lid of my laptop, the screen would not wake back up on any newer kernel version. The 3.16 kernel that came with this UP actually solved that problem, but something else with the UP seems to be causing the issues I am having, as booting with the 3.11-2 kernel results in the same behavior--screen brightness bar stays on screen at 100% for 8-10 minutes, screenshot doesn't work, and using the super key will completely freeze the system. If I wait until that bar goes away in 8-10 minutes, my mouse driver loads in the system tray and then the system is completely stable. Zerozero posted some more detailed requests for info, so maybe he will be able to help me through it. Thanks though!

After upgrading to UP 2014.10.15, /tmp is a link to /var/tmp and that causes some problems.

I deleted the link an recreated /tmp as a directory, after reboot rtkit started without issues.

It solved some strange hangs/timeouts too, on a freshly booted machine it took15 seconds after clicking Kickoff until it popped up.


Some more poettering effect. A collateral effect this time, but again pulse lagging systems for some cause or another. AFAIK; rtkit-daemon is only needed by pulseaudio.

Yea. It's OK, here.
Thanks.

By the way, is this not yet the synchronization between the old Home and Business Eds. into the new "Regular" one, right? Since the repos are changed but there are a lot of "testing", there. So we have to expect more changes.
Godspeed SolydXK!

Yep, sound wasn't working either until I fixed the rtkit problem.

could you post the output of

Code: Select all

cat /var/log/apt/term.log | grep gpsd

so we can see exactly what went wrong.


output:

Code: Select all

I then tried calling updatemanger from the terminal. This was not successful due to the pop-up reporting "E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)" which cannot be closed (in terminal it said, "(updatemanager.py:2991): Gtk-CRITICAL **: gtk_widget_destroy: assertion 'GTK_IS_WIDGET (widget)' failed").

So I tried to purge gpsd as zerozero suggests; this did succeed, but trying updatemanager again results in a repeat of the above none the less. So we seem to be stuck at:

That sure looks like the same problem that I had. It isn't necessarily related to SSD:s.

Check if /tmp is a link, run this:

Code: Select all

file /tmp

If it returns "/tmp: symbolic link to '/var/tmp'", you can try removing it and recreating it as a directory:

Code: Select all

sudo rm /tmp
sudo mkdir /tmp

Removing /tmp on a running system can make it unstable, make sure you reboot the machine as soon as possible afterwards.

Ah, that explains it. I've found the symlink on two of my three machines, the one without was probably installed using a later ISO.

Perhaps this was never a good idea in the first place, but in my Solydx installation I had installed Dolphin to use for file work. All seemed to work and co-exist fine.

This update on most (but not all) of my machines has resulted in all the kde programs being removed. One or two machines seem to be still ok, but on most the update deleted the kde programs.

I am not sure how to go about dealing with this. Going to synaptic and marking dolphin and hoping it will load all base items that are needed results in a "broken package" message that will not let me proceed.

apt install dolphin gives me a list of unmet dependencies which I suppose I could go through and install til it lets me install dolphin.

Am I really messing up Solydx by installing Dolphin? I don't mind the disk space loss for things I don't need - I just don't want to mess up the system.

If I try to proceed, what is the best way to get dolphin installed for use on a XFCE desktop without making KDE the desktop?

thanks!
