slack64: help for repair AlienBobs multilib


As I described this morning I ran into the failure "no Keyboard/Mouse" because of the bug in alienBobs multilib.

Now I read the instructions to repair it :

Code:
The fix is to upgrade to my latest compat32-tools package, and then reinstall the original Slackware64 hal, dbus and mysqld packages:
Because my english is really basic I don't clearly understand what I have to do?
Do I have to repeat the WHOLE complete procedure as described here

http://connie.slackware.com/~alien/multilib/

(section "fast track")???

And (if I have to do so) how can I download all the files via console (I think, I have to do so and I've no experience to work without X-apps)

That bug you are talking about, is old. It was fixed on September 14th, so you can not run into it today if you downloaded my multilib packages recently. Unless you are using an out of date copy of my compat32-tools package and/or converted *-compat32 packages.

What version of the compat32-tools package do you have installed?
To fix your issue, all you need to do is install the oroginal Slackware64 packages of hal, dbus and mysqld. Then update to the latest compat32-tools package and if needed, download the packages which I already converted for you: see http://connie.slackware.com/~alien/m...re64-compat32/ and run "upgradepkg --reinstall --install-new" for all of those.

Downloading all those packages can be done as a single command:
Code:
lftp -c "open http://slackware.com/~alien/multilib/; mirror slackware64-compat32"

What version of the compat32-tools package do you have installed?
I installed your multilib-tools on Aug. 28th (it's the date of the subdir). All worked fine over the weeks. From Aug. 28th until Oct. 26th I did'nt do any slackpkg-command. On 26th Oct. I did it...on Oct. 27th I'd no mouse/keyboard.

Have done it and have installed it as you decribe it in your blog-entry from Sept. 25th

Downloading all those packages can be done as a single command:
Code:
lftp -c "open http://slackware.com/~alien/multilib/; mirror slackware64-compat32"
Have also done it.

First I downloaded all packages with your lftp-command above

As a result I got six subdirs: ap-compat32, l-compat32, x-compat32, a-compat32, d-compat32, n-compat32

Then I jumped into each dir and started

Code:
upgradepkg --reinstall --install-new *.t*
After that I jumed into /etc/rc.d . there I found two *.new-files which I overwrote over the empty files.

Then I reboot the comp

I login as a user and make startx, but unfortunately an error appears:

Code:
Failed to load module "type1" (module does not exist,0)
Failed to load module "freetype" (module does not exist, 0)

waiting for X server to shut down
What should I do now?

maybe should be nice to see the rest of X output
you can redirect to a file with
Code:
startx > /tmp/startx.log 2>&1
(not sure if really useful, but) you can try also to reinstall original slack64 packages of hal, dbus and mysql if you haven't done this as last step and check for .new files overwriting old ones. then
Code:
# /etc/rc.d/rc.messagebus restart
# /etc/rc.d/rc.hald restart
and try startx again

There is no rest in the X output except the standard remarks before the error messages appears.

the installation of the original slack64-packages as the LAST step is in opposite ob Bob's directions. But okay, I've just made it, reboot but nothing changed, the error is the same.

I've got the two
Code:
(EE) Failed to load module "type1" (module does not exist, 0)
(EE) Failed to load module "freetype" (module does not exist, 0)
in my Xorg.0.log, but those are harmless, it's not that causes startx not to work.
are you using some proprietary driver? try to reinstall it.

but if you can post your /var/log/Xorg.0.log it will be easier to understand what's wrong (I hope).

Code:
(WW) AllowEmptyInput is on, devices using drivers 'kbd', 'mouse' or 'vmmouse' will be disabled.
(WW) Disabling Mouse1
(WW) Disabling Keyboard1
try adding this to ServerFlags section of /etc/X11/xorg.conf
Code:
Section "ServerFlags"
...
        Option "AllowEmptyInput"  "false"
...
EndSection

mmmh, strange thing is it seems I can't see any blocking errors for X.
have you tried
Code:
xwmconfig
as a user to change window manager? maybe it's a problem with your current .xinitrc

please post also the startx.log
Code:
startx > /tmp/startx.log 2>&1
and sorry if I ask again , have you reinstalled nvidia drivers? I'm asking this because mesa has been updated too and nvidia drivers need to be reinstalled after a mesa upgrade...

@poncez, have changed to KDE ---> X started, hooray!!!

But when I logged out, there were a lot of error messages around with X.

Changed it to xfce ---> X starts, hooray !!!

There where also a lot of errors around with X when I logged out


But anyway: I can save my data and then I'll DELETE SLACK64 and replace it with slack-13 -no more experiments with unknown results. I'm healed.

@poncez, thank you very much for your efforts and patience!

Now I have to go to work.

much sorry about that

in my opinion slackware 64 is the future.
I am amazed how bugless it is for a first release, I have seen no bugs on the 8 installations I have (but I can feel the performance difference between now and before when they were running 32bit slack).
I doubt your problem is connected to stock slack64: I suggest you to start again from scratch, I think you won't regret it.

Hmm... [off-topic-mode] I'm wondering, why You tell "first release"? Slackware is the one of the oldest Linux distribution Slackware64 is just 64-bit compilation of Slackware... You cannot say this is first release... This is 13. release I don't count subreleases, such as 12.2... But first-time 64-bit - that I agree.[/off-topic-mode]

wingevil: but Why You bother about this messages, if Your X server works? Those messages are probably for non-detected features by xorg. Read it carrefully and search the web for solution

edit: Oh, I forget, that those errors may be not only from xorg server, but also from x-applications, such as window manager, monitoring agents, and so on. If You log out, you kill xorg server, so all backgrounded processes cannot find anymore xorg server, and window manager, so they are killed also, but with error messages such as "cannot find X" or "cannot find screen 0:0"

Well actually, you'd be surprised how many bugs have been squashed before we released the initial version of slackware64-current to the public!

Creating the 64-bit port was not a matter of just recompiling. A lot of the packages in Slackware would not even compile in 64-bit, and had to be upgraded. A lot of application build scripts had to be patched.

There was also the matter of building Slackware64 in a way that it would be able to expand to multilib (adding 32-bit libraries) later, and also modifying the build process in such a way that it would be easy for Pat to essentially maintain two distros instead of one.

All considered, the 64-bit port has stabilized pretty quickly after it's initial release. Several other bugs that the team never ran into were found by test users right after we uploaded slackware64-current.

I love our community.

Yes, I know, that porting is not only recompilation. I'm very impressed of Your work . But for end-user the system is good, old Slackware Of course, with newest apps and supporting brand new technologies
