Issues in -current as at Fri Aug 21 21:17:48 UTC 2015


A couple of issues I have noticed in -current as at Fri Aug 21 21:17:48 UTC 2015.
- 'shutdown -h now' and 'shutdown -r now' do not work as expected. The shutdown reaches 'Remounting root filesystem read-only:' but proceeds no further, requiring a physical power switch shutdown. Observed in both 64bit and 32bit installs on 64bit and 32bit hardware. Recompiling sysvinit-2.88dsf-x86_64-4 had no effect.
- When in X windows session, I can use Ctrl-Alt-F6 to get to a TTY terminal, but attempting to get back to the X windows session with Alt-F1 fails. On my 64bit hardware with the nVidia 304.125 driver, I get a login screen. On my 32bit hardware with ponce's intel driver, I get a TTY screen where hitting Ctrl-C gets a logged in TTY prompt.

Does X run on tty7, not on tty1? Does Alt+F7 return to X session?

Doh!! Thanks bormant, I have been hitting too many keys instead of the sack! The shutdown issue still stands though.

I saw exactly same thing and tracked it down to a 'wait' command near end of rc.6. Inserting a 'ps -ef' just before the wait showed it was trying to unmount a couple of nfs mounted directories which had some subdirectories bind mounted elsewhere. I worked around it by explicitly umounting the directories in rc.local_shutdown so now that 'wait' command in rc.6 has nothing to wait for anymore.

Adding 'set -x' to /etc/rc.d/rc.6 and removing backgrounding shows fuser hangs while trying to kill stuff on a non-existent /proc/fs/nfs mount. Man page says it should return non-zero.

The intel video package does not work yet for x windows. The intel packages from ponce do work.

TigerVNC has been broken for some time now, and rebuilding it, well... good luck if you pull it off. The xorg driver won't rebuild and a newer version, if I'm not mistaken, does exist, but has issues still. There are other VNC software packages that are known to work better, plus, this is -Current and -Current is known to have issues. Packages often with too many issues get put in /pasture or the /unsupported directories on the server.

Don't be mistaken. Latest TigerVNC builds well and the program has always been possible to build.
TigerVNC 1.5.0 packages for Slackware 14.0, 14.1 and -current are here: http://www.slackware.com/~alien/slackbuilds/tigervnc/ .
I even have a version 1.4.3 for Slackware 13.37.

Works as root, in the VM where I am compiling the next Plasma 5:
Code:
root@virtslack64-curr:~# fuser --help
fuser: Invalid option --help
Usage: fuser [-fMuvw] [-a|-s] [-4|-6] [-c|-m|-n SPACE] [-k [-i] [-SIGNAL]] NAME...
       fuser -l
       fuser -V
Show which processes use the named files, sockets, or filesystems.

  -a,--all              display unused files too
... etc ...
However when run as a normal user, the command prompt will indeed not return.

Last time I attempted a rebuild due to an issue on -Current I had the xorg driver would not compile for -Current. I attributed it to -Current being it's normal self where nothing was certain. So I stopped using it on -Current. On release versions, yes it's fine. No problems on standard 14.1 so far.

You are the LFS user. I would have expected you to find the patch that is needed for a successful compilation on slackware-current!
In the meantime, just remember to peek into my SlackBuild repository from time to time :-)
