It's been added to fix some nasty bugs between UP7 and UP8.

Ok, removing "dbus" prerequisite from /etc/init.d/mintsystem script seems to fix this issue. I don't see why this script requires dbus in the first place - it's not used in the adjustment script or anywhere else.

Today's upgrade makes system "unloggable". If I try to login to Cinnamon or Gnome classic it stucks on a black screen with mouse arrow. Nothing goes further. As I've found some lib starting on p or o letter causes this (libo*.deb or libp*.deb).

EDIT:
Strange. Only logging in from graphical prompt does the problem. When i log in from text prompt on TTY1 and run startx it runs Cinnamon with no troubles.

I think I can confirm this. Logging in from mdm gets stuck.Not exactly sure which packaged caused this as I did a really big dist-upgrade today.

Think I caught sight of some gdk-pixbuf error similar to viewtopic.php?f=198&t=132747&p=828324&hilit=pixbuf+upgrade#p828324 but following the instructions there didn't solve my problem. After some hair pulling, I've installed lightdm for the time being which works too (only how to use startx to log in to root...) in place of mdm. But I noticed all my startup scripts at log in don't run anymore.

Can't reproduce that in my Debian Testing VM (not LMDE, but has some Mint packages installed) with MATE and MDM 1.6.9.
The login is fine.

Maybe you should try this version of MDM?

It's gnome-keyring 3.12 that breaks the manual login in MDM.
Automatic login still works.

Strange that I couldn't reproduce it earlier... gnome-keyring 3.12 migrated to Testing on 3rd September...

That's it. Just edit the file /etc/pam.d/mdm and comment two lines:
Code: Select all
auth    optional        pam_gnome_keyring.so
session optional        pam_gnome_keyring.so auto_start

That solves the issue and I can login from mdm to my desktop again.

Yeah, I use this workaround too. However, it won't be applied in Mint as a solution since the keyring isn't unlocked automatically on login now. :?

Finally, fglrx is back in Testing (this version should be compatible with xserver 1.16).

Today's kernel update to 3.16 crashes X server with Nvidia graphics (340.32 drivers). If i remove xorg.conf X server starts, but in 1024x768 resolution and no 3d acceleraton of course. I don't know, it's lack of some gfx modules for the new kernel?

EDIT:
Problem solved, that was simple. Just rebuild DMKS module for Nvidia driver:
Code: Select all
sudo dpkg-reconfigure nvidia-kernel-dkms

This is an amazing hack, just made my day!! Apparently lightdm (which I've been using for about a month now) starts up some programs wayyy slower than mdm :lol: But yeah, thinks are back to their nice and snappy state now :D

Skype plugin for libpurple messengers (pidgin-skype) is broken in Testing. Get the fixed version from Sid.
