slackware 14.0/current dbus problem
I have an full upgrade from 13.37 to current today 9 sep 2012.
I wana use NetworkManager for my xfce.
The upgrade was done with slackpkg and I ran slackpkg clean-system, upgrade-all and install-new before and after rebooting the new system.
also I did overwright .new to old config after the upgrade.
** (nm-applet:2245): CRITICAL **: dbus_set_g_error: assertion `gerror == NULL || *gerror == NULL' failed
bash-4.2# find /etc | grep .new
has this something to do with the new passwd and shadow to do?
also from starxfce:
(polkit-gnome-authentication-agent-1:2094): polkit-gnome-1-WARNING **: Unable to determine the session we are in: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.ConsoleKit.Manager.GeneralError: Unable to lookup session information for process '2094'
I found this in /var/log/messages
Sep 9 13:31:09 compaq kernel: [ 138.199835] nm-applet: segfault at ffff3ff0 ip b646d6ae sp bf868950 error 4 in libc-2.15.so[b6
Me, too, having problems with nm-applet in Slackware64-Current
nm-applet: segfault at d ip 00007ffd4ffdb13e sp 00007fff1d614cb0 error 4 in libc-2.15.so[7ffd4ff92000+1b3000]
That`s a bug in NetworkManager and it isn`t Slackware related.
Browsed ftp.gnome.org and found out that NetworkManager 0.9.6 was released but was not announced on the first page.
Compiled this version with the Slackbuild provided in source and NetworkManager doesn`t segfault anymore.
Also a new version of nm-applet was available but NetworkManager 0.9.6 works just fine with nm-applet provided in -current.
From the changelog of NetworkManager 0.9.5
Overview of changes since NetworkManager-0.9.4
This is a new stable release of NetworkManager. Notable changes include:
* Many libnm-glib fixes, including crashes when NetworkManager restarts
* Enhanced IPv6 stability and compatibility
* Fix regression in carrier handling for devices that don't support carrier detect
* Add ability to connect to new WiFi networks from nmcli
* Add native support for ADSL modems using PPPoE or PPPoATM
* Reduce number of changes made to DNS information during connection setup
* Add support for IPv6-enabled VPN connections
* Add device driver version, firmware version, and autoconnect properties to D-Bus API
* Add on-demand WiFi scan support
* Fix IPv6 default gateway handling for DHCPv6
* Add Vala language bindings
It seems the segfault was fixed since 0.9.5
It's unfortunate that Slackware is using this crappy & buggy software pushed by other vendors. Thankfully, it can be disabled ...
Which crappy and buggy software? NetworkManager? It's working perfectly for me. On all of my Slackware Linux installations. This one I*am on now is a Toshiba Laptop.
I think this problem is solved. For me, I use wicd now.
It works fine.
NetworkManager also works fine for me with a clean install of 14.0. No problems. My guess would be that it was from something in the upgrade process that got borked.
Okej, I like NetworkManager more then wicd. I'll think I tray it out.
If I have have problems I will post here.
It works perfectly with only some warnings outputted.
I don't mind, have a lot of those. :)
