Yes, 64-bit Flash is OK now. There's a SlackBuild for it, or grab the tar.gz from Adobe.

Hello,

Might be making some progress. I am getting the missing liblzma.so.0 error. Alien Bob's blog instructs that upgrading aaa_elflibs will solve this problem. Where can I find the latest package for Slack current to run upgradepkg on this library?

Thanks for any help

Bob

EDIT: Sorry, found it.

Just for the records...

I was having trouble KDE 4.5.1 stability after upgrading from 13.1 to -current yesterday morning on my main desktop. The issue was KDE shutting down without warning and reporting numerous errors including seg faults. This morning the change from mesa-7.9 to mesa-7.8.2 seemed to fix the stability issues.

See Eric's post #38:
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ml#post4159752

I recently installed a replacement motherboard (Gigabyte GA-MA785GM-US2H) and changed video cards from a PCI nVidia 7600GS to the on-board ATI Radeon HD4200 (RS880 core) while running 13.1. No problems until the upgrade to -current. I felt like a noob again for the last 24 hours which reminded me why -current can sometimes be an adventure!

Well, upgrading the aaa_elflibs package does indeed solve the missing liblzma.so.0 error, and KDE ALMOST starts, but then fails with:

Quote:
Could not connect to KDEINIT4!
Anyone know how to solve this? I really would like to be able to use KDE again as XFCE4 is very unstable on this machine.

Thanks in advance.

Bob

as said before when running current # comment # the /etc/slackpkg/blacklist #aaa_elflibs in your slackpkg blacklist. now upgrade-all now your link will be there. this is causing your crash.

For those two you won't need multilib support. But, why not to keep them around? They've proven to be very useful, from time to time.

Thank you, finally figured that out. I still get KDE crashes even after updating aaa_elflibs. Note above that now it crashes with cannot connect to Kdeinit4. That is the one I need to solve now. I no longer get the missing liblzma.so.0 error since updating.

Thanks for all the hard work guys.......just updated current today..most problems resolved as a result of this thread........just have some minor issues with the intel xorg server.....there appears to be some major screen "fluttering" going on.... This is not as bad if I disable compositing.....still exists but to a much lesser extent.......any ideas or thoughts appreciated......

I don't think your monitor's refresh rate is being handled correctly. The bad part is, I don't know how to handle this in the new xorg. Maybe it can be handles through KDE's System Settings for the Display. Just find what the refresh rate should be for your monitor.

So at first I had some nasty problems, but then after reading alienBob's blog I found out I should have upgraded the aaa_elflibs too. Ok, after that I have a new problem: Xorg won't work as it should with nvidia driver.
this happened on my current x86 system the fix I had to do two things. deleted my .kde file then
this got kde going. but the next problem is the setting for composite kwin desktop when you do that it goes blank then goes black. I had to go in even though I was using nvidia and set it to direct render then it failed nice then reset to openglx and it is fixed. this is a kwin problem after the last upgrade and it did it for 4.5.1 to 4.5.3 . it has to do with kwin composite setting.
It works because your reading this. did not have the problem in x86_64 yet going to upgrade that now.

@Didier_Spaier - One other thought is to check ~/.kde/share/config/kwinrc in the [Compositing] section. I have Backend=Xrender for the nouveau driver.
after reading that that told me why the package had failed with my nvidia card.

Sorry, Drakeo, but my problem is nothing like that. As I said, I tried three window managers (KDE, lxde and xfce), so the problem doesn't look like WM related. As far as I know xfce and lxde don't use those shinny pretty compositing stuff like KDE, so...

I still couldn't fix the problem

a little reminder (said many times in various topics, I think this too , but it shouldn't hurt): for the ones of you which use the proprietary nvidia drivers remember that, after updating xorg-server, mesa or the kernel (like it happened in -current in these days), you have to reinstall them.

I'v just removed the Nvidia proprietary drivers (which I installed with sbopkg),. and installed the most recent ones from the Nvidia website ( 260.19.20 ),. but still no luck.

PS: X-crashed, I commented the aaa_elflibs in /etc/slackpkg/blacklist , the slackpkg with update-all, slackpkg install-new and slackpkg clean-system. KDE runs again, but not that great. Small animated gifs are animating in about 1 frame per second. (blink blink)in firefox..

They are okay in Konqueror though.
