Debian Multimedia :: Upgrade System From Jessie To Stretch - Second Screen Detection
Dec 31, 2015
I recently upgrade my system from Jessie to Stretch, with no problem. A little later I upgrades Enlightenment from e17 to e20, and at some point shortly after that the second screen stopped working.
The nvidia X Server Settings correctly identifies both screens. But Enlightenment and xrandr does not see the second one at all. The second screen are on and the pointer moves correctly onto it, but no activity with left or right click. I have tried with the original xorg.conf, and generated a new one with nvidia-xconfig, but no difference. No obvious errors in any log-files either.

I recently upgraded my debian system from jessie to stretch. Before then, I was mostly using hibernation instead of shutting off the laptop, to allow myself to get back faster to work the next day. Since my upgrade, though, it is impossible for me to resume from hibernation: after the normal boot sequence and the passphrase to decrypt my lvm partition, when it has loaded the information from RAM the screen just stays with a blinking "_" (underscore) in the top left corner.
I have hibernate and uswsusp packages installed. I also installed tuxonice-userui package to do some tests with the hibernate-ram and hibernate-disk commands. While using hibernate-disk (hibernate-ram didn't work, because "s2ram: unknown machine"), my system hibernates correctly, and I saw that during resume it was correctly loading everything from swap and then going back to the "underscore screen", confirming that the resume problem was happening after loading data from swap.
I tried booting using the recovery kernel in grub. For a time it worked, but today I didn't get the chance to make it work. The only solution was for me to boot my kernel by adding the "noresume" option to it, thus forcing it to restart.
I upgraded the distro (Strecht - Testing) and the result was almost the same mentioned by mittgreen, when I boot the system it fails to load the X, ending in the "oh no something has gone wrong" screen.Now, the only possible way to use the GUI is to start it manually by startx command. Reading the Xorg.log I saw a "No screens found" error.
I want connect from remmina to jessie on another system via xdmcp but only black screen happened.
my daemon.conf Code: Select all[security] DisallowTCP=false
[debug] Enable = true
And gdm3 listen on udp/177. My syslog :

When i'm tried google there is lots of bootlogd related document there. [URL] .... Yes there is documentation. But I'm only need "enable boot logging","reading boot log". Bootlogd not worked on jessie/stretch.
I have installed Package: gnumeric (1.12.18-2) in my Jessie/Mate system. It is very jittery on scrolling, and I was wondering if I should upgrade to the version (1.12.26-1) in stretch(testing), as there seem to have been a large number of bugfixes.
I have tried the following simulation command, but it gives the error message shown:
Code: Select all~# apt-get --simulate -t stretch install gnumeric Reading package lists... Done E: The value 'stretch' is invalid for APT::Default-Release as such a release is not available in the sources
The documentation suggests that I may need to create an apt preferences file. I do not have any of the following files mentioned by the apt-get man page:
What I would like to do is upgrade just the specific package jessie/gnumeric(1.12.18-2) to stretch/gnumeric(1.12.26-1). I do not want any other packages to be inadvertently upgraded to stretch. I have seen warnings that one can easily end up with a badly mixed system and I wish to avoid that! I also do not want to disturb the standard apt-get update, which I am running daily via anacron at present.
I have an asus eee 1015px, which was running dualboot windows and wheezy with no problems (except the browsers seeming to take up a lot of CPU). Today having backed up everything, I wanted to upgrade to jessie. URL...
Everything seemed to be progressing fine, no strange messages, it took 1 hour for
Code: Select allapt-get upgrade
but maybe that's normal. However, then when I did
Code: Select allapt-get dist-upgrade
It froze at 17.30 with a weird screen. The sort of thing you never want to see on an install, a sad face and blocks instead of text. pic: URL...
Then it moved on and gave a readout, which seemed pretty ominous pic: URl...
It then moved and gave a readout, hanging again: pic3: URl...
Now it seems to be in loop, moving on every 15 minutes or so but always ending up with the same screenful of text shown in the foto below, which ends with the last line reading like this:
X won't start (awesome WM) after upgrading to jessie. It seems to startup up, then just stops. I'm running startx from the command line after logging in. The xorg log (bottom) looks good and I see an exit code of zero.
I do see this in sysout:
Code: Select alldebian xf86TokenToOptinfo: table is NULL
Googled around but I can't find anything specific on this one.
I'm not using any xorg.conf, as booting into a linux rescue cd everything works ok

Under wheezy, I could set gnome-terminal profile to partial transparency, i.e., to display the desktop wallpaper behind the text. (E.g., a picture of my girlfriend.) But after upgrade to Jessie, this option completely disappeared, and now I can only pick a solid color. Do I need to flip a setting or something to get this back? Am running default Gnome desktop (not fallback mode) though I think I only have 2D acceleration.
I recently upgrade from wheezy to jessie. I had a problem with the icons and solved it. Now when i place the xfce4-power-manager-plugin on the panel, the plugin is using more RAM than it needs. Currently its using 960 MiB. Yesterday it used about 3 GiB of RAM. It doesn't happen if the plugin is removed from panel.

I upgraded from wheezy to jessie, but now I just boot to a console. I've gone through and made sure all packages are up to their latest versions, and I've made sure gnome, xorg, and xserver-xorg are reinstalled (during the upgrade they got uninstalled..).
Here's what happens when I run startx manually:
Code: Select allcharlie@asimov:~$ startx X.Org X Server 1.16.4 Release Date: 2014-12-20 X Protocol Version 11, Revision 0 Build Operating System: Linux 3.16.0-4-amd64 x86_64 Debian
Note also that this whole time, gdm3 has been running:
By freeze, I mean that the mouse can still move, but everything else behind it is frozen entirelyI can switch to a terminal with CTRL+ALT+F1, it's ... I guess... X or gnome-shell or something that's frozen? Not the whole OS thoughThese freezes last anywhere between 5 or 10 seconds and 3-5 minutesI can't predict when they will occur, but often, after a suspend/resume, they will start occuring much more frequently. Also, they often happen after I enter my password and press ENTER on the lock screen after a resume from suspend. But not exclusively -- they can happen at any other time when I'm doing pretty much anything in GNOME...
Things I've Tried...
When frozen, I've tried to CTRL+ALT+F1, login, and run gnome-shell --replace... [*[When frozen, I can successfully CTRL+ALT+F1 and run `service gdm restart`... with the obvious downside of losing everything I have open. But the screen responds immediately and I can log back in to GNOMEI tried running `Xorg -configure` to generate an /etc/X11/xorg.conf file to edit, but received an error about not being able to generate configuration for multiple screens or something (I can retry and provide the exact error if this is a useful direction to try) is it the gnome-shell freezing? Is it X? Is it a problem with the X driver I'm using?
In trying to get openbox running in new Jessie installation, I followed an instruction in openbox.org: Help: XFCE/Openbox.
" If you want to use the Openbox root menu instead of Xfce's, you could terminate Xfdesktop by running the following:"
Code: Select allxfdesktop --quit.
That eliminated everything on the desktop except the Debian8 background image and the panel clock and made it impossible to do anything other than log out via a right click on the panel. Shutting down and rebooting just brings back the same situation. No terminal available.
I recently upgraded my Debian box from Jessie to Stretch. After this, apt informed me that I should issue "apt-get autoremove," however the package list to be effected was large and contained some important packages (xorg being just one example). Most of the packages are qt4 related, and I at first assumed qt5 equivalents had replaced them, but seeing network-manager and xorg in the list made me pause.
I found a nice old mini industrial PC with an Jetway NF92 motherboard (Atom N270/Intel GMA945 GPU).
Installed Jessie on it, I have a strange problem under X11: mouse pointer is garbled (looks like somebody cut the arrow in four separate sprite and shake them well , and screen flickering. If I move down the mouse in the lower part of the screen, the screen flicker slowly, if the mouse goes in the top part of the screen, screen flicker rapidly... And finally, putting the pointer on the last line of the screen make the screen stop flickering with perfect screen....

After upgrading to Jessie (AMD64) I have a totally blank screen, not even a blinking cursor. The video card is a GeForce 6200 and I have nouveau loaded. I originally had an nvidia module in Wheezy. I decided to use the instructions at the Debian NvidiaGraphicsDriver wiki to install the NVIDIA legacy package. That was worse. The nvidia module was unloaded in the X.org log, and the screen presented as a login console.
I tediously removed all NVIDIA components, and reverted to nouveau since its report in X.org log says it supports GeForce 6 series cards. That brought me back to a totally blank screen. The nouveau module lists as "video" doing lsmod. Both gdm3 and the X server processes are up and running. Other than reporting that "nv" couldn't be loaded, there is nothing in X.org log that appear abnormal. The .xsessions_error log is troubling however, but I don't have the knowledge to interpret.
I've recently installed Debian Stretch and Gnome. After setting up everything I ran into an issue with Rhythmbox, which apparently only occurs if NFS mounts are present in /etc/fstab, independent on the question of whether they are actually mounted or not. I'll attach the results from running it from console with 'rhythmbox -d': [URL] .....
I guess, the last lines are the "problematic ones" but I can't make sense out of them. After the last line, a window opens telling me that rhythmbox isn't responding, whether I want to kill it.
And the /etc/fstab entrys (in case any of those options is an issue):
Installed kdeconnect from Stretch repo, and KDE Connect from F-Droid on my phone, but I don't know how to get this working. No KDE Connect options anywhere in System Settings (I also search there for "connect" and don't find anything related to KDE Connect). There's no GUI anywhere, no Plasma 5 widgets, nothing. Only "kdeconnect-cli", which when I enter "kdeconnect-cli -l" (list devices) I get
Code: Select allkdeconnect-cli(26749)/kdeconnect DevicesModel::refreshDeviceList: dbus interface not valid 0 devices found
On the phone side, "No devices" found when it searches, or when I press refresh. Why is there no System Settings option even after installing the kdeconnect package?
I'm using Debian Stretch with Gnome and Cinnamon. My desktop computer sports an nvidia geforce 970 gpu (this may be relevant, and it is the reason I had to go with stretch.) I'm not a very experienced linux user but I get along fine.
I'm sharing my computer with my mom and whenever we have to switch users, the computer seems to shut down for 35 seconds: the screen doesn't receive signal anymore. After a new user is chosen, it takes another 35 seconds to get to her session. This is embarassing because my os runs on an ssd and everything else is nice and fast. At first I thought it may be a matter of us two not using the same window manager or not using the "default" window manager, but changing window managers didn't work.
Today I learned about the existence of /var/log/syslog and I decided to check what happened to it when I switched users. I can't post the whole log of what happens because it is too big, but I put it on pastebin : [URL] ....
I understand almost nothing of what is written here, but I saw some interesting things:
- after 35 seconds intervals where nothing is logged, there is a stall on cpu detected (lines 68, 500) - my gpu seems to have something to do in all this
There are a couple of tiny things still keeping windows essential in my netbook, one of them is the movie player, in windows i use GOM and one of GOM's features is the ability to stretch video to fit screen, is there any other player for linux able to do taht?
I recently upgraded my graphics card from a Geforce 7600GS to a Gefore 560Ti. And while most things are normal, during boot up my screen isn't "full screen" until X is started, after which everything else is fine. Essentially, all display, the grub menu, the splash screen, console text, etc, is within a box on the screen, with 2" on the left and right, and 1" top and bottom of empty blackness.
From what I understand, this is because the framebuffer is using the wrong resolution, but the maximum resolution that hwinfo --framebuffer returns is 1280x1024 (which I am already using "0x031a".) (My monitors is natively 1920x1080) Is it possible to do something about this? If not increase resolution than at least stretch the screen to full screen?
i have an installation of wheezy 7.8 i think. i was facing difficulties in read of matroska video. therefore have decided to installer gstreamer1.0 wich should be resolve my problem. i have added the backports repository in apt sources list. after an apt-get update i launch apt-get install gstreamer1.0 . i have noticed it have starting downloading more file than it needs i concluded that it was a upgrade or something like because the kernel was also updated. after the the packet downloading it has started the installation with some errors related to LOCALE LCC. it has stopped and restarted some services wich is normal. i have closed all others apps and restarted. Here start the hell. after the restart i have passed the kde login screen and after BLACK SCREEN with mouse working.
Alt+F2 don't open the krunner
What i have tried? i have rename the /home/jefcolbi/.cache and back it again, rename /home/jefcolbi/.kde and back it again. next i have tried to check the Xorg config file. i created a new one with X -configure, modified it to feet my system configuration this does not resolve the problem but add another the keyboard is not working in graphical mode.
My system configuration:
Toshiba laptop Satellite Pro L300 Dual core 3gb Ram graphic card:Mobile Intel(R) GMA 4500MHD sound card: Intel HD Audio debian whezzy 7.8 with KDE
Note: everything was working fine before trying to install gstreamer1.O from backports repository
I upgraded my Wheezy 7.8 to make sure all packages were installed Before taking the next step to upgrade to Jessie.I upgraded to Jessie and it seemed to run OK....but after reboot I had no network Connection..I checked ifconfig and the wrong network card mac address is being assigned to the wrong card....?I have a clonezilla server on my server, so this was my network interfaces before and after upgrade
Code: Select all# This file describes the network interfaces available on your system # and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5). # The loopback network interface auto lo iface lo inet loopback
I even checked nano /etc/resolv.conf and sure enough my gateway was the same for my Internet eth0.When I ran ifconfig I could see that the eth0 mac address was set as eth1..I tried to reset my drbl for clonezilla but that only sees the vmware Connection and not my actural cards.. have taken alook at /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules and the assignment is right but not ifconfig?
