@RavenLX
Could you please open a new topic in the software section?
It isn't related to the UP process, and I'm afraid it will disappear in this posts waterfall.

Well I did finally get kwin working by using XRender but no desktop effects but at least the composting is working now but crashes with any OpenGL but OpenGL seems to be working everywhere else.

Only other problem I had was having to manually install Grub after rebooting, it worked but was a no show. :roll: But after a manually install it's working correctly again,

Just to say that I've updated one laptop and one netbook with SolidK 32 and both went well, zero problems. :D

Guys, thx for your hard work and..."keep this distro rolling...and rocking" :mrgreen:

Just updated with update manager and everything went smoothly. :)
Happy to be able to add to the good news, and hopefully those that encountered issues are able to fix them easily.

Cheers to everyone involved in making and testing this UP!

How to restore GRUB after updating

Postby Zam » 15 Apr 2014 22:47

I am a newbie to SolydX. I just tried to apply the Update Pack.

During the process, I was asked to select the ‘GRUB’ install device (as per the image at http://solydxk.nl/up-and-bebo-2014-04-15/). Selecting the default ( /dev/sda ) resulted in error messages (unfortunately I can't remember them), so, naïvely, I tried the other option (I think it was /dev/sda2). The update process appeared to go smoothly, but upon rebooting, I now have no GRUB (It just says ‘file not found’ and then ‘entering rescue mode’ upon booting, and then gives me a command prompt which says ‘grub rescue > ’.

Is there anything I should type at that point to restore GRUB, or any other way I can do it?

Thank-you so much for your help,

Zam

Updated SolydK-64 via Update Manager, all went well, everything is working fine.

However, as several others have reported earlier in this thread, the GRUB update page had a few glitches, auto-advancing before I could click OK, then after pressing ESC to go back and having it auto-advance again, I ended up with a warning screen telling me that no device was selected to install GRUB to. I selected OK, figuring I'd just reinstall GRUB manually (not my favorite thing to do, but what the heck) - however, when I rebooted GRUB was there just as it should be. So a little excitement, but ultimately a boring update, just the way I like them :D .

Well it work once, after I had to use the reboot command in the terminal to get it to reboot. rebooted again just to make sure it was going to reboot properly, after the first problem with reboot. came back and it's back to were I started.
here's what I get:

Kwin just is not getting along with OpenGL, since the update. It's just eye candy and still a usable system with XRender.

OpenGL seems to be working though, just not with Kwin:

Thank you for your response Schoelje.

I tried your solution with no success ... same error message (Error:file not found)
{Tried using parameter hd0 then hd1 and finally hd2)

Perhaps a little more information on my system would be helpfull.
A mixed environment with one IDE and two SATA hard drives each on a different channel.

Booting from a "Live CD" and mounting partitons manully I can "see" the SolydX installation:

According to GParted the root file system exists on sdb1.

A directory listing of /boot on that partition sdb1:

solydxk@solydxk:/mnt/temp/boot$ pwd
/mnt/temp/boot
solydxk@solydxk:/mnt/temp/boot$ ls -l
total 77640

-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 2887760 Mar 5 13:40 vmlinuz-3.13-1-amd64

I'm hoping (actually praying-:) that this additional info will help to refine my grub rescue inputs.

I think it may be necessary to specify two other variables:
linux and initrd variables ???



Thanks again for any advice / suggestions ....

Tom

The update manager display:

During the update process using the update manger I noticed a small problem:
Messages would appear on a blue background which were illegible and would disappear very quickly.

I'm familar with this blue screen ... apt-get from a console.
The first was related to Nvidia fortunately the relevant update documentation was helpfull.

The second was related to Grub and the nut behind the keyboard screwed the pooch ... again.
(Which explains my recent posts about Grub rescue prompts -:)

This is not a rant or a complaint merely a observation.
Problems with a newish rolling distro are to be expected.

@schoelje - OK on the other topic but this all happened after the UP (it wasn't happening before the UP). Only thing I need help with is Dolphin so I'll start a new topic for that in Software.

Thanks for another great UP! :) So far, everything else is working fine.

Just updated my ancient (~13 year old) PC running SolydX. Took a little longer than I expected, but no major problems. Seems to be running fine thus far. I'll work on my SolydK boxes tomorrow.

Hi All,

Is there a way to restore the panel to default install configuration? I am having trouble with the panel after the update and want to get it restored. Thank you.

Well had a bash.rc issue using after everything downloaded. Apper as my default software updater. I know but I like it.
Hanged right at the bash.rc in the gui window never a popup asking about keeping config.
Has to do a sudo dpkg --configure -a and answer N to keep config. Then I could proceed rerunning apper and now is installing the rest of the downloads.

I always answer No does anyone ever answer Y? I'm wondering as this seems like a roadblock to software updates.
Any way to automate that to No and no need for intervention? Seems outdated and not integrated with the whole updating a persons customized desktop and why they would need to answer anything but No?

Just curious as made apper hang and never a popup asking.

Also, I got the panel restored but now applications added to panel are showing on the right side and not the left. Can this be fixed and moved?
