If I might add to this:
Code: Select all
sudo update-grub

After you make any removals.

Yes, that will prevent the removed kernel(s) from showing up in the menu. It's not fatal if it does, but confusion could result, and updating grub after changes is certainly a good idea.

xircon, I checked the sgfxi install code to see if there were any bugs that might make a false install error for libgl1-mesa-glx but I do not see anything.

The easiest way is to check : /var/log/sgfxi/sgfxi.log

which will have logged what happened more or less and maybe will show the information required.

The code quoted was from the log, everything else in the log looks fine.

no, I would need to see the entire session log, you don't know what you're looking for in there, something may have indicated something or other prior to the actual error. Those logs are very verbose to permit debugging, but that doesn't mean you can be expected to know what the stuff actually is doing or what's the warning stuff prior to the error.

If one gives problems, you can boot to an earlier version that you know worked. Updates do not remove older kernels, they just add new ones as they become available. You have to manually remove older kernels if you want them gone. The best way is through Synaptic package manager, which lets you see all the installed kernels, and you can choose which to remove. Just make sure you never remove the kernel that is currently in use.



Tks for the info... i'll keep both of them, until the native kernel gets update to work whit my sound card.

I updated my LMDE to the newly released 2.6.37 kernel. Compiled it myself from Source via CLI.

Code: Select all
Linux vrkalak-lmde 2.6.37-020637-generic #201101050908 SMP Wed Jan 5 09:09:44 UTC 2011 x86_64 GNU/Linux

The Linux Kernel 2.6.37 was released as 'stable' yesterday. (2011-01-05)

Not as hard, as I thought, it would be. :?
The hardest part was updating Grub ... finally had to just re-install Grub.
The new kernel showed up in the grub.conf file but not in the Splash screen?

You got a point, updating grub2 is harder then compiling the kernel :-) Life was much easier before grub2.

Some day I'll teach myself how to handle grub2.. :-) For now i'm completly happy with the liquorix kernel.

Make sure that you have installed both packages: "linux-headers-2.6-liquorix-amd64" and "linux-image-2.6-liquorix-amd64" then run on a terminal as root:
Code: Select all
update-grub
and that should be it.
Also (this happened to me) if you boot with liquorix and only see a black screen it's probably because of nvidia not being properly configured on the kernel so let's rebuild the nvidia module on it:
1- Boot on liquorix kernel.
2- Switch to the console pressing ctrl-alt-f1, ctrl-alt-f2 or ctrl-alt-f3
3-Login and:
Stop X:
Code: Select all
sudo /etc/init.d/gdm3 stop

Install the nvidia module:
Code: Select all
sudo module-assistant auto-install nvidia

Start X again:
Code: Select all
startx
or
Code: Select all
/etc/init.d/gdm3 start

At least that was it for me, I hope to have solved your problem.

xircon, as I suspected, the issue isn't at all related to that package, it's related to installing any package, in this case, the command is reinstall, not install, so it's installed, it gets reinstalled.

The install is what is failing, same happened above in the first session in your log file.

I assume that you are using wifi, this is my guess, and that you are using the mint wifi connection manager, which may not properly enable wifi connection out of X, though why the ftp downloads and sgfxi update work I can't say.

This is a problem in Mint almost certainly, not in sgfxi, sgfxi is simply stating a fact, the apt-get install command exited with error.

I should add some more logging in there I think to show me what runlevel the user is in, if X is actually running at the time, and a few other things that might help me pin down issues like this.

However, there's no problem with sgfxi, it's all working correctly from what I can see, the error message is exactly right, there is a problem with apt.

You might have a borked apt-get that shows error every time it's used, I can't really tell you.

You can test yourself: apt-get install --reinstall any-package
and see.

glx may not be reinstallable if X is running, I can't really say.

I do see space for more logging of system data here though.

Grub doesn't list your new kernel?

It's just as root, "update-grub" but that would have already been done if you installed Liquorix kernel from Synaptic.

if you did "update-grub" and still don't see it listed, I'd reinstall it. When you do "update-grub", do you see it listed in the terminal? Have you installed the image + headers?

Same here ... Grub2 didn't see the new Kernel even after update-grub

I checked in the grub folders/files and the new kernel was listed but it would not show up on the splash screen.

I finally, had to boot into the other Linux OS on my PC (#!Crunchbang) and do an update-grub from there ... then, the new kernel for LMDE showed up on the splash screen. I don't know why this made a difference but it did.

If you don't dual-boot with another OS ... perhaps, use the LMDE LiveDVD and update-grub from there?
