Re: Multiarch, ia32-libs, Wine, Skype & others

I don't have any complaints yet about multiarch. I only noticed one thing odd, that seems like a bug. For some packages like say libssl, because there are libssl0.9.8 and libssl1.0.0, if you have libssl1.0.0 amd64 and libssl0.9.8 amd64 installed, and if you try to install a piece of 32bit software t...

Re: Linux 3.2.x, Ivy Bridge, Intel HD 4000 == total freezes?

I started getting the freezing once I enabled pcie_aspm=force i915.i915_enable_fbc=1 i915.lvds_downclock=1. These are typical settings I use on all notebooks, but on this machine, after enabling them today, I've had two freezes. It is annoying on the ultrabook because I have to disassemble the machi...

Re: Update pack 6 chat/questions/support thread

I'm not sure how to answer this question because I'm not sure if I understand it correctly, but I'm going to try :) . I think that you want to have a repo that is stable, but allows you to upgrade certain packages (I may be wrong, though). I think there are already a few ways to get this currently,...

Re: Update pack 6 chat/questions/support thread

ddurdle, you summed up in that post the reasons why you shouldn't be using lmde (or debian testing or ofc sid); we love to have all the possible users aboard but for your user-case i honestly believe that a LTS kind of release (like mint maya) is the answer. I've always preferred Debian over Ubuntu...

Re: Update pack 6 chat/questions/support thread

I upgraded another 64bit machine yesterday, this one really doesn't use anything 32bit so there were no issues. I never encountered the same issue that I had on the 32bit system. I've still got to find time to investigate the priorly mentioned 32bit system issue. This leads me to my next question --...

Re: Update pack 6 chat/questions/support thread

Has nothing to do with arrogance. The very first post in thread says this is for the Update Pack 6. To post in this thread with questions. But that goes against the guideline recommendations that says to post a new thread for a new problem. That of course generated some confusion on my part and was...

Re: Update pack 6 chat/questions/support thread

I thought this was a thread where maybe we could get some help fixing the problems in Update 6. My mistake apparently. For what it's worth, I tried to find why my root partition was full. The proc directory reports that it is 140.7TB in size. On a 110GB hard drive. Guess it's time for a wipe and ne...

can you give us the output of apt policy libxrandr2 there's something going on there (i guess that at some point you were playing with experimental :lol: ) http://packages.debian.org/search?keywords=libxrandr2 I guess so. This is my oldest 64bit install system, so perhaps at one point the experimen...

Re: Update pack 6 chat/questions/support thread

Upgraded one of my 32bit machines. Something weird going on with shell scripts now. I have a sell script called cputemp.sh. It was working prior to the upgrade, but now I can't run it with ./cputemp.sh. I get "-bash: ./cputemp.sh: Permission denied". The script has a #! /bin/sh in it on the first li...

Re: Update pack 6 chat/questions/support thread

Update Pack 6 was promoted from incoming to latest, right? I was testing incoming (as you are aware from my posts earlier) the other week on a 64bit machine. There were quite a many updates (system was up-to-date on UP5). I saw the facebook post that Update Pack 6 is officially released, so I did an...

Re: Update pack 6 chat/questions/support thread

ddurdle, do you have multiarch enabled? what's the output of these 2 commands dpkg --print-architecture dpkg --print-foreign-architectures Yes, I have it enabled. First one shows amd64 and the second shows i386. I dug deeper into this on the weekend. There were two libxrander2 showing up in synapti...

Re: Update pack 6 chat/questions/support thread

I found a second piece of 32bit software that requires libxrandr2. I have libxrandr2 installed, but when I try to install libxrandr2:i386, it wants to uninstall nearly everything including libreoffice, caja, mate, etc

Re: Update pack 6 chat/questions/support thread

I thought one of the "big things" for the latest incoming was the move to multiarctl? Steps to upgrade advised to remove ia32*. This is ultimately the step that caused wine and many of my 32bit applications to be removed. Wine was fine up until then, but I followed the steps to "reinstall" it with m...

Re: Update pack 6 chat/questions/support thread

I upgraded today. Is Wine not working what-so-ever in incoming? It uninstalled it. I installed wine64-bin, but when I run, it asks me to install wine-bin:i386 but I get: wine-bin:i386 : Depends: libwine-bin:i386 (= 1.4.1-4) but it is not going to be installed . If I follow the dependency chain, I ge...

Re: Sound Issues after UP5

I have sound after a reboot but then I eventually lose it again. All the sound controls show the sound is unmuted, and there are no errors in VLC or flash etc, just no sound. Even when I suspend and hibernate, there are no beeps. It's like the sound is 100% completely disconnected. It only started d...

Re: Booting computer with two hard drives

"Stand-alone, both drives boot fine if the other drive is not connected." I have two HDs, one with 3 linuxes and the other with win7, which I hardly ever use. Having both connected while installing OSs and/or grub typically causes weird problems. My free advice is: - disconnect one disk and install...

Re: Long time without get any update

Incoming is newer; it gets upgrades earlier (so you can help ensure the upgrades go fine). I don't think you understood my question. I asked if it was still newer, as in, now that UP5 was pushed through as latest. I answered my own question today. I pointed my install to "incoming" from "latest" an...

Re: Booting computer with two hard drives

I should probably add the following: Stand-alone, both drives boot fine if the other drive is not connected. That is, the system boots into grub, and I can select any of the kernel images shown, for which each one rightfully exists on the disk, and successfully load into my linux environment. If I h...
