Debian Multimedia :: (Solved) Evolution Crashes In Squeeze After Recent Update?

May 19, 2010

After recent update (yesterday) Evolution became almost unusable: if I am going to create a new e-mail or just select a person from Contacts or reply to someone it simply crashes. The update also didn't go very smooth - 15 updates were not applied because of a broken dependency - evolution-exchange, which depended on evolution prior to 2.30.0 but was to be installed. Is there a way to make Evolution to work or upgrade solving dependencies?

Debian Multimedia :: 3D Games Fail Recent Squeeze Update?

Apr 16, 2011

I run the 2.6.32-5-686 kernel on Squeeze and the bad nvidia drivers. A recent update, and pardon for not noting which, broke 3d games on my box. From a terminal neverputt yields the following error:

ignatius@lapbox 14:56 [ ~ ]:$ neverputt
X Error of failed request:  BadWindow (invalid Window parameter)
Major opcode of failed request:  137 (NV-GLX)


I can mv xorg.conf to xorg.conf-pre and nexuiz will fire-up. Without 3d of course. I spent an hour or so last week going over my xorg.conf but it just ain't broke! Someone else saw it, too, and reported it but his post remains alone in the thread as of 10 minutes ago.

Debian Multimedia :: Update Manager In KDE4 (Solved)?

Jan 8, 2011

So far I have just used the CLI to upgrade KDE, and I get notified of upgrades once a day, where a popup shows when new upgrades are available. However, when I push the "install upgrades" button, nothing happens. In Gnome, all I had to do was click the update notifier and click install. I am pretty confident the same is posible in KDE4. I have searched the web trying to find a solution, but I can't find anything. I am probably missing some packages. Can someone help me configure:

1. Update intervals for the KDE update manager, and
2. GUI updates for the KDE4 desktop.

Debian Multimedia :: Recent Update Panels Not Showing Up?

Mar 30, 2011

Recent update is causing problems with the top and bottom panels not to show when I restart and or start my acer aspire one netbook. It takes several retries to try to get it to show. I don't know what the possible problem is my guess is the gdm3 is the one causing the problems.

Debian Multimedia :: Create An Account With Evolution In Squeeze?

Aug 17, 2010

Can anyone actually create an account with Evolution in Squeeze? The "Evolution Setup Assistant" won't take me past the "Importing files" dialog. When I press the Forward button, nothing happens. This is what I get when I press the forward button (running from a terminal): (evolution:9945): Gtk-CRITICAL **: Page flow is broken, you may want to end it with a page of type GTK_ASSISTANT_PAGE_CONFIRM or GTK_ASSISTANT_PAGE_SUMMARY

Debian Multimedia :: Multimedia Crashes On Squeeze ?

May 13, 2011

I've just installed Squeeze 6.01a from the xfce iso image on an old PIII which has been running Lenny with xfce without any problems. It's a fresh install after a reformat.

Sounds and multimedia apps like gxine and mplayer all worked fine on Lenny and other older versions. Now they don't - not gxine, not mplayer not even VLC. Run from the menu they all abort - and if run in an xterm they all crash with the following message -

Assertion 'pthread_mutex_unlock(&m->mutex) == 0' failed at pulsecore/mutex-posix.c:108, function pa_mutex_unlock(). Aborting.

Debian :: Getting A Recent Version Of Wine Anymore On Squeeze 64bit

Aug 10, 2011

since lamaresh is not being updated anymore and the wine packages from the official Debian repository are quite old there isn't really much choice for getting a recent version of wine anymore. Since I don't want to use the carbon project or the Mempis repository, as stated here, (at least yet) I have decided to build the package myself. Unfortunately I would like to have a 32bit version but am running a 64bit version of Debian Squeeze. When I run ./configure I get the following message at the end.

Debian Multimedia :: Squeeze Update Killed Cairo

Jun 1, 2010

I have been having problems with Squeeze last day or so, but thought would do all system updates available in hope this would stop the system crashes only to find that upon reboot my dock of choice, Cairo-Dock, which is set to auto start puts a message on screen saying it has no plugins available and that it will not run as a result. And it just won`t run. The update included updates for Cairo Dock and it`s plugins, which it seems have all updated correctly and package manager says every available plugin IS installed as it was before, what I can do to correct this annoying issue?

Debian Multimedia :: Reduced FPS After Yesterday's Update (Squeeze)

Jun 14, 2010

I've been using the testing branch for quite some time with no major issues. However, yesterday's upgrade (I run dist-upgrade roughly every day or two) I've been experiencing some very low FPS rate - about 150-250 according to glxgears. My gfx card is a bit old - Radeon Xpress 1100 (200M).

Xorg.log and syslog are both fine. I've tried forcing the "radeon" video driver in xorg.conf as well as the automatic "ati" value without any effect.

It could be a bug, or it could be something resulting from the upgrade of any of the packages.

Debian Multimedia :: NVidia Died With Last Kernel Update In Squeeze

Oct 21, 2010

It was no surprise that I needed to reinstall the nvidia driver after a 2.6.32-5-686 kernel update a couple days ago, but I was surprised that it didn't work. I've had to drop back to a kernel I compiled a few weeks ago, which is basically the stock 2.6.32-5-686 from that time, with a timer frequency of 1000 and desktop preemption.
Vid card is GeForce PCX 5750

This is the command I used:
env CC=/usr/bin/gcc-4.3 sh
(After it didn't work, I ran it with --uninstall and tried installing again. No luck with that.)

Here's the nvidia installer log (sorry about the encoding. I don't know what happened with that): [URL]
rivafb, nvidiafb and rivatv are not loaded.

I don't see it in this one, but on a previous attempt, I saw an error message that said no nvidia graphics card was found. I've been suspicious that the card is slowly dying, based on problems like gray blocks on the screen or (in an older lenny install) persistence of the contents of a window appearing inside a terminal, when I switch desktops from the one where the browser is open to the one where the terminal is open. Scrolling the artifact off-screen and back, or window-shading the terminal and then un-shading it causes it to re-draw correctly.

Debian :: Evolution-mapi Not Available In Squeeze?

May 26, 2011

I need to install a Linux distribution at work and I'd like to give Debian a try (I've been using Gentoo for years at home). But as it's a Windows environment, I'm currently trying to see how Debian could cope with that, meaning how to register to LDAP (I found this: ... index.html), get mails from MS Exchange, I saw that for other distributions, they were talking about evolution-mapi to achieve the mail retrieval from MS Exchange, but I saw that the package is not part of Debian Squeeze.Did I see correctly (sorry, Debian noob here )?Is there an alternative?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: No Sound Since Recent Kernel Update?

Aug 20, 2010

Today, I installed the recent kernel security update (i.e. 2.6.32-24-generic #41-Ubuntu SMP). After a reboot, the sound is gone.

From my user account:
mpc@awd:~$ alsamixer
cannot open mixer: No such file or directory

Same problem with "aumix".

However, the commands "sudo alsamixer" and "sudo aumix" seem to work (but still no sound).

"lsmod | grep snd" will give
snd_hda_codec_atihdmi 2367 1
snd_hda_codec_realtek 203310 1
snd_hda_intel 21941 0

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Sound And Video After Recent Update?

Aug 8, 2011

After recent upgrade which contained the newer kernel ( 2.6.35-30-generic). I've started to experience problems with sound and video in programs - deadbeef and totem. Both of them dont play any sounds and video in totem is skipping every 3-4 seconds (the same applies to flash videos in browser).

As I run deadbeef from the command line I dont get any significant information. I run ubuntu 10.10 amd 64. I tried to reinstal gstreamer my programs and codecs with no luck.

Debian :: Awn Applets Do Not Work After Recent Update

Aug 19, 2011

I have been dsitro skipping around. Reinstalling the new versions every six months, only to find more major drawbacks recently with ubuntu. I fixed a major problem with adobe flash being majorly slow on my hardware by following the debian flash guide, what a life saver. I now love my linux system, flash was always a pain, made me appreciate windows. I thought I might try a rolling release distro (PCLinuxos is pretty good but I couldn't install office in wine). I heard about the speed of debian - the mother of all distros. But when I tried debian stable, I had hard crashes so I decided to try Wheezy instead.

Now I seem to be sitting pretty. With one exception, the latest 0.41 update of the AWN window manager breaks the awn applets. I have locked the version at 0.4 by going back to the stable branch that worked. But I would rather not have to check to see if the next updates is going to break them again. There were some more updates recently to awn-applets not sure if they fixed this problem. Why was this update released in the first place, when it breaks down awn almost completely ? without the applets it's almost useless. It's probably something simple like changing the directory but still annoying.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: A Recent Update Has Caused IEC958 Output To Stop Working?

Feb 1, 2011

I've recently noticed that my IEC958 digital audio output has stopped working. The short version of why I didn't notice this immediately is that I have two simultaneous audio outputs from my system to my speakers and I hadn't realized the IEC958 output wasn't in use.After messing around with a few settings to no avail, I remembered that I'd recently run update manager (this had to be within the last two weeks) and thought this might be the cause.I have just booted to a 10.10 install disc and verified the IEC958 output works fine there.

Unfortunately I'm not sure which of the recent updates could have caused this problem. Before I submit a bug report on launchpad I was hoping anyone here might have a suggestion as to where to look to figure this out.I'd recently seen this thread and this thread which lead me to believe it may have been a recent kernel update.What's my best course of action to determine the problematic update?[edit]In case anyone needs the info, I'm running Ubuntu 10.10 64 bit on a system with an Intel DH57JG motherboard. Using the HDMI output to a TV, with a separate optical audio cable to my speakers.Also, I've attempted using all of the available digital audio output options in the sound preferences panel and I've also installed gnome-alsamixer and tried enabling/disabling every digital output listed there as well. None of these got the optical output working again.

Software :: Skype Crashes On Debian / Squeeze AMD64 System - Fix It?

May 18, 2010

Using the howto at I installed Skype 2.1 beta 2. It launches OK using either skype or linux32 skype and brings up the login screen. It already has my username but when I enter my password skype crashes before logging me in. I get the error:

Inconsistency detected by dl-open.c: 643: _dl_open: Assertion `_dl_debug_initialize (0, args.nsid)->r_state == RT_CONSISTENT' failed!

I know this is a long shot since skype isn't open source, but does anyone have a workaround?

Fedora :: Swiftfox Crashes After Recent Updates

Oct 30, 2010

Anyone else notice that the recent updates have trashed Swiftfox? Here's the error message: Quote: MozPlugger: Error: Too many types (32) for handler 22 (application/vnd.sun.xml.writer:sxw:OpenOffice Writer 6.0 documents)

Opera, Seamonkey and Firefox all work fine and if I open Firefox and then open Swiftfox, it's working just fine, so apparently FF handles the OpenOffice, etc., issues for it. It still fails if you have opened Seamonkey or Opera first.

OpenSUSE :: Evolution, Recent Email Addresses Drop Down?

Apr 10, 2011

I have a feeling this is going to be something no one cares about enough to have bothered with, however, just in case someone else got frustrated enough to figure this out I thought I would ask.I have an associate I send and receive a lot of email with. They have one email they use rarely (once a month) and another they use all the time. The problem is that evolution always shows the one they use rarely first.

That is, when I partially type in their name in the "to" field those two email addresses will list in a drop down. I would like to either remove the rarely used email address from the list or have evolution list from most recently used (like "The Bat!" does, a Windows email client I use) instead of however it does it now, presumably it's just in alphabetical order.Right now about 20% of my emails go to this other email address because I'm busy, in a hurry, tired or whatever and just forget that it defaults to the wrong one all the time and it's caused the occasional problem.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Crashes After Update?

But after I updated everything and restart my computer, won't work. When I start my computer, I get this. (Translated: Your monitor, video card and your input devices couldn't be detected correctly. You have to choose manually the correct settings.)

Debian :: No Gdm After Squeeze Update

Aug 31, 2010

I recently did an update squeeze and the next day after I restarted there was only a blank screen.The laptop started, the system installed, the wifi connected but no gdm.I started in recovery mode and tried;

# invoke-rc.d gdm start, and got the response that it was an invalid command or words similar to that.
# startx, gives me a blank screen with an unblinking cursor.
# apt-get install gnome, tells me that the latest version is already installed.

If it has any bearing on the issue, I dual boot with Ubuntu and that works fine.Is there anything to be done to fix the problem?

Debian :: Squeeze Update 6.0.1 DVD Is Broken?

I have an offline machine and the full 8 DVD repository set and have added them to the system and they work fine to install packages. I used jigdo to download the update 6.0.1 DVD and the "packages" file and the one inside of "packages.gz" are empty files. This prevents the disk from working at all. I'm not sure who to report this to.

Debian :: Bug Prevents System Update On Squeeze

Jul 8, 2011

I cannot update my system either with Update Manager nor with Synaptic. The system tries to download the updates, and then generates an error message that I have broken packages. So, I click on Fix Broken Packages, etc., and when running get the following error message:

E: /var/cache/apt/archives/libavcodec52_5%3a0.6.3-0.0_i386.deb: short read on buffer copy for backend dpkg-deb during `./usr/lib/i686/cmov/'

This appears to me to be a system bug. I'm running the 32-bit version of Squeeze. Re-install, or ?

General :: Update The Kernel From 2.6.16 On Debian Squeeze?

Feb 12, 2010

I just did an update of my Debian system from lenny to squeeze as described here. I got some errors during the install, saying that glibc couldn't be updated. I did an apt-get -f install, which gives me the following warning: WARNING: this version of the GNU libc requires kernel version 2.6.18 or later. Please upgrade your kernel before installing glibc.

The installation of a 2.6 kernel could ask you to install a new libc first, this is NOT a bug, and should NOT be reported. In that case, please add lenny sources to your /etc/apt/sources.list and run: apt-get install -t lenny linux-image-2.6 Then reboot into this new kernel, and proceed with your upgrade dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/libc6_2.10.2-2_i386.deb (--unpack): subprocess new pre-installation script returned error exit status 1 Errors were encountered while processing:
