Installed The Latest Changes to Current and......
 
Ugh!
X crashes and reports a segmentation fault, address nil.
I've been using the generic Radeon driver without any problems, until now. Looks like it will be winblows until I figure out the problem.

After upgraded the X crashed too.
It complained that missing liblzma.so.0, so i made a link to liblzma.so.5 and it worked.

other issues of the lastest current update:

1. /dev/shm missing, revert to udev-153 fixed
2. the rc.M script section of gdk-pixbuf2 error
g_module_open() failed for /root/--update-cache: /root/--update-cache.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
3. bluetooth mouse not worked, revert former version of bluez fixed

fixed

Thanks, i was about to post the same thread asking how to fix.

Managed to get KDE up and running, but all gtk apps show:
Code:

error while loading shared libraries: libgdk_pixbuf-2.0.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Any idea on what that needs linking to?

I tried having a look, only found a directory
Code:

$ find /usr/lib64 -name 'gdk*pixbuf*2*' 2>/dev/null
/usr/lib64/gdk-pixbuf-2.0

maybe it would help to
Code:

slackpkg install-new
installing packages added to the -current tree.

Ah wow, whole time i was running slackware 13.1 i never noticed an option for that.

Installed:
gdk-pixbuf2-2.22.1-x86_64-1.txz
radeon_ucode-20100902-noarch-1.txz

Thanks.

For #1, I found a hack:
Code:

#install -dv /lib/{firmware,udev/devices/{pts,shm}}
works on my side.

For #2, do a #slackpkg install-new would be ok.

For #3, I have not test the bluetooth yet...

I also notice that the fonts are sharpener than before. Does anyone have the same kind of feeling?

Synaptics scrolling
 
After upgrade to current I lost the scroll function of my synaptics touchpad (Thinkpad T41). To fix it:
Code:

cp /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/
and edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-synaptics.conf to suit your wishes. I added
Code:

        Option "VertEdgeScroll" "on"
        Option "HorizEdgeScroll" "on"

and all is well again ;)

And yes, nicer fonts here too :)

I am using slackware64 current, the gdk-pixbuf2 script still compained after installed.

Alien Bob 11-15-2010 04:59 AM

Please check my blog post http://alien.slackbook.org/blog/huge...-to-my-laptop/ which addresses several of the issues mentioned above. Your issues are caused by incompletely upgrading to slackware-current.

Can anyone comment on the font situation with these new updates? The default GTK font changed from actual arial to Liberation Sans, using gtk-chtheme to set it back doesn't work. If arial is selected, it is autotragically (did i just invent that?) changed back to Liberation Sans.

Additionally, monospace 8 is ... different. As if it were really just monospace 9 with less space between the lines; the character sizes look the same.

Have a look:

Any ideas?

Mirror in Norway error?
 
Is there anyone use the Norway mirror of Slackware -current? I used it to update with slackpkg but got a lot of md5 checksum failed. When I change to US mirror, there is no error.

Is that the mirror of Norway error?

I've had to revert cryptsetup back to the 1.1.0 version as the new version (1.1.3) hangs when doing a luksOpen.

Love the fonts.

Are you running multilib?

Apparently there's a new dependency from gtk-query-immodules (in gtk+2) to gdk-pixbuf2. You need to get gdk-pixbuf2-2.22.1-i486-1.txz and convert and install it --

Code:

convertpkg-compat32 -i gdk-pixbuf2-2.22.1-i486-1.txz -d /tmp
installpkg /tmp/gdk-pixbuf2-compat32-2.22.1-x86_64-1.txz


zhoun 11-15-2010 07:39 AM

thanks.

convert gtk2 and gdk-pixbuf2 to compat32 packages and upgrade them fix it.
