When Ever I Update to Current

I crash something. Here are my errors that I am getting........

1- Mixer_Applet2 Process 2441 has crashed

2- OAIFD:Gnome_MixerApplet Details: Unknown Corba excetion id: :1.0

I also don't have a "speaker Icon" or mixer. (Probably caused it crashed)

Here is my lsmod..............

bash-2.05b$ lsmod

Now if I just leave it alone after installing and don't update I have no problems at all.

Any ideas?

Thanks again for the help.

Are you using Slackware GNOME, or Dropline GNOME? What are you using to update...swaret? Slapt-get? If so, and you're using Dropline, have you excluded the GNOME files installed by Dropline from any update facilities? They are designated *.1dl.tgz for this very reason.

It sounds to me like your update is trying to overwrite Dropline files with Slackware files while they are in use... and if Dropline was completely compatible with GNOME-standard, it wouldn't need to be a separate installer and set of processes, it seems to me.

As motub asked, what tool are you using to update? Swaret?
If you're using Swaret there have been a LOT of problems updating v9.1 to -current. Use the Search feature at the top of the page, and you might find some answers already posted. I'm not trying to scold about searching first before asking a question, I'm just saying that there's already a lot of information about this upgrade problem in the boards, in particular to losing sound/Alsa. Some of us have decided to use Swaret just to keep v9.1 up to date, and wait for the next official release, rather than upgrade to -current with Swaret.

Well I just installed and updated on the wifes laptop and it works great. Course she has a Dell Latitude C600 with maestro (spelling) sound deal and seems to work great. Maybe I'll just reinstall Slack on my laptop and leave it as is until the official comes out like stated.

Yes I was using Swaret too. Sorry for not answering that the first time around.

Thanks for the help anyways.

Here is a update on my laptop. Like I said everything with the upgrade on the wifes laptop went without a hitch, but on mine I had a ruff time with the sound.

Hopefully this will help others out. Not sure if I did this in the correct manner or not, but its working, so here it goes....................

After doing alot of reading I kind of pieced this all together.

Update swaret with the "current" in the conf. file
Then upgrade, even the kernel, so "comment" out the "Exclude" for the kernel and let it update.

So run "swaret --upgrade"
Let it do its thing.

When asked for "y" or "n" on packages I said "y" to all EXCEPT anything to do with alsa. I DID NOT upgrade alsa at all.

When it was done with its upgrading I ran "updatedb" and then "/sbin/lilo" for the kernel upgrade. Just to be sure. I have read where swaret or the upgrade process will do this automatically, but I ran it just to be sure.

Now I didn't have sound on the reboot so what I did, after reading alot is I went to and got the latest drivers, lib and utils and downloaded them into a dir I made called "alsa"

From there I went to this page
and followed it step by step.

Now I have "intel8x0 sound and it worked for me. Now I'd imagine if anyone else is having this trouble would pick out thier card in the database there and followed the install instructions they would have just as good as luck as me.
