A clean SolydK64 install of the 201407 ISO:

Code: Select all

1310 upgraded, 135 newly installed, 5 to remove and 1 not upgraded.
Need to get 1,049 MB of archives.
Big UP again...and libavformat55 is not handled by the pre-up script. Don't know if that's bad, though.

on my last simulation the worst scenario is that apt tried to replace libavformat-xx-extra with libavformat-xx. I guess everything will goes quite smooth on this transition.

rolgiati had already reported issues with libavformat55 here >> http://forums.solydxk.nl/viewtopic.php? ... 73&#p44800 but
a) it was "only" adding DMO and D-U;
b) i couldn't replicate the issue at the time.

The pre-up script checks if systemd-sysv is installed. If it is, it will purge systemd-shim if it is installed.

Updated my first VM. Apparently smooth. Haven't found any issues yet... other that the UP manager keeps notifying that there are upgrades available. Run it twice and after updating it says the system is up to date, but the systray icon persists.

This one was an unaltered machine basically on its defaults. Only periodically updated and that's it. Going for the other one now. Fully tweaked in this case.

the UM stops at the apt-listchanges notice; it can easily be demised with the key q but i wonder if it won't confuse some :cry:

That's probably because libavformat55 is held back. I think I'll remove that package. Since the last libav update there's a libavformat56 and unless I'm still missing the point with regard to this multimedia mess (which is not at all unlikely...), that should do the job.

I've updated my main system. Nothing out of the ordinary during the update itself, except for an awful lot of the known pixbuf messages. I just know some people are going to be freaked out by that, even though it's harmless.

Also, after the update I couldn't reboot (again), only log off. Same as after the previous UP. However, unlike the last time, in the LDM screen all menu options were unselectable as well, so I could only log on again. This problem persisted until I rebooted using the terminal. Now I know my system is far from standard, so it's quite possible this is caused by some weirdness in my setup, but if it isn't and others get the same issue...

And I agree with zz: the apt-listchanges notice is going to confuse people.

Edit: can't remove libavformat55. Wants to remove vlc, so more investigation required... ;)

Thanks for clarifying, Grizzler.

Oh, yes, that. I thought it was me clicking logout instead of restart. Though I was quite sure I clicked right. Rebooted from lightdm and now just works as it should.

As far as I know, all recent ISO do not have apt-listchanges installed but the older version had it installed.
I can force purging apt-listchanges in the pre-up script, but should I?

It looks like you can install libavformat55 before dist-upgrade.
This will remove libavcodec-extra-55, but 56 is available.
Going to test this.

exactly!
finished now the first update (X-32bit) and i see the same behavior: only logout is possible at first try and from lightdm all options are grayed out
snapshot310.png
logging in the other option do appear but are useless and don't reboot or shutdown the system, only logout.
as Frank said i also needed use the terminal to reboot.
after that all's good :roll:

It would be nice if we can find a workaround for that.

I will add it to the information page. At least the users will be informed.

I tried this in SolydX 64, freshly installed from the 201407 iso, using updatemanager started from the tray icon. UM updated itself and then started on a small (14 packages) update but froze in the middle of it.
Updatemanager log attached.

updatemanager.log
(20.87 KiB) Downloaded 85 times
EDIT: Restarting the machine fixed the freeze whatever caused it. The Update Pack then installed without further problems. I was able to restart after from the lightdm login screen, which solved the greyed out buttons in Whisker menu.

I've updated the pre-up script which now handles the libavformat55 package correctly (tested on SolydK64, SolydX32, and SolydX64).

Information page has been updated.
