Debian Multimedia :: X Won't Start After Upgrade To Jessie

Aug 22, 2015

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

Debian Multimedia :: X Won't Start After Upgrade To Squeeze

Mar 5, 2011

After upgrading to squeeze I have now X Server 1.7.7 installed and it won't start.
When I try to run startx script, monitor gets blank for few seconds and then I get back to command prompt and no errors is displayed.

When I try the same as root, system locks up with blank screen and no functioning keyboard.

Initially I had kernel 2.6.28 which worked fine with earlier Lenny's X Server and Matrox P650 AGP video card. After upgrade I found, that Matrox P650 is not longer supported in new xorg and I swapped it to Matrox G550 AGP card.

Tried mga driver's many options, upgraded to kernel, tried with Matrox G200 PCI and Savage 4 Pro AGP card but without a success.

With kernel AGP support turned on I got both with Matrox G550 and Savage card an MTRR error: "error setting MTRR, Invalid argument (22)". Without AGP support in kernel, Matrox G550 gets initialised as PCI card and no errors and X still not working. Same with Matrox G200 PCI card.

With vesa driver the behavior is also the same and output at the end of Xorg.log file is almost the same.

So I understand, that this is some X server problem?

Nothing special in xorg.conf file and tried without it also.

End of the Xorg.0.log file:

(II) MGA(0): YDstOrg is set to 0
(II) Loading sub module "fb"
(II) LoadModule: "fb"
(II) Loading /usr/lib/xorg/modules/

So then after some googling I got the suggestion to downgrade udev-151 to udev-141, but that yeilded no results. So I did some more googling and a bunch of people who had the same problem said that downgrading module-init-tools worked, so I downgraded from module-init-tools 3.11 something to 3.6 and now, not only does my X no longer work, but no modules are being loaded I believe, for example I saw in my startup that fuse was not being loaded, ndiswrapper which I had installed was not loaded.

Ubuntu :: Laptop Fails To Start Windows Environment After Upgrade / Fix It?

Apr 5, 2011

I recently installed the 32bit version of 10.10 on my Dell Latitude E6510. Everything went smoothly.. in fact I was quite impressed as I have my laptop in a docking station connected to dual 24" displays. The installer recognized them and they worked perfectly right outta the box: yea for Ubuntu !

After the install, I installed some apps then upgraded the installation to the latest hotness - lots and lots of things were upgraded. I restarted the machine to "complete the upgrade process" and it boots but right when it gets to starting the Windows environment, both display just loose their signal...

It boots fine to the command line if I boot in safe mode. I had installed the nVidia drivers but I did that before the update and I had no problems until I did the system update. Any ideas? Should I start by disabling the 3rd party drivers? If so, how would I do that?

Debian Multimedia :: Unable To Start Second X Server

Debian Multimedia :: Optirun Cannot Start X Server

Dec 30, 2015

I have been using bumblebee on my Optimus Laptop for a long time.I think I have this problem since the last Xorg upgrade, some months ago. The upgrade notes warned that Xorg now runs on userspace, and that configuration files are now read from the user (although I haven't noticed that).Then optirun ceased to work. As I'm using sid, I'm used to things being broken sometimes, so I simply let it go waiting for an upgrade that would fix it. Since this upgrade (either to Xorg or to bumblebee) is not coming, I have searched on the Internet, and I'm surprised that many people have had problems with bumblebee, but no one seems to be having the same exact error (see below).

I have tried everything (everything my limited knowledge and my internet searches allow me). I have tried with nvidia and nouveau drivers, but I get more or less the same result.

Code: Select all$ sudo systemctl status bumblebeed
● bumblebeed.service - Bumblebee C Daemon
   Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/bumblebeed.service; enabled; vendor preset: enabled)
   Active: active (running) since mié 2015-12-30 09:30:34 CET; 20min ago

It seems Xorg is failing but is not giving any information about the failure, no message, which is different to the problems I have found in the Web.
I have purged bumblebee packages to assure I'm using default configuration files. I have added rcutree.rcu_idle_gp_delay=1 to GRUB_ CMDLINE_ LINUX_ DEFAULT as instructed on some howtos.

Debian Multimedia :: Tightvnc Server And Can't Start GUI Apps As Root

Feb 12, 2015

I have headless debian as a server which i use over tightvnc server running on it. Vnc works fine but I can't for example run sudo mousepad or any other gui app from terminal, it says something about not having the rights to open it as root. I understand this has something to do with security, but my computers are behind nat so the vnc server can only be connected inside my lan so i don't mind.

Server :: Cman Installed But Fails To Start / What To Do?

Jun 16, 2011

The setup: 2 identical boxes running Fedora Core 15 kernel, 64bit that Im trying to setup in a cluster using luci.

So far: Managed to create the cluster.conf file, defined the nodes with hosts and such.

The problem: When I try to have the 2 nodes (nod1 and nod2) join the cluster via luci's web interface, I get
"Starting cman: Job failed. See system logs and 'systemctl status' for details."
When I check code...

Now. I know that cman service is installed. I even tried removing and reinstalling the whole thing, dependencies and all, but it just won't start and I've run out of ideas.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: DVD Fails To Work After Upgrade To 11.2?

Nov 28, 2009

Cannot find input plugin for MRL [dvd:/] Is now the message that I get when attempting to play DVDs in Kaffeine, which worked very well in SuSe 10,3 three hours ago. Ironically, VLC now works a treat, when upgrading that in 10.3 killed it.Xine doesn't want to work (restricted format), and Kaffeine isn't playing any files either. Has something been dropped from my previous setup, or do I have an inadequate installation? I'm not very command line oriented I'm afraid;I just expect things to work as they did before...:-)

Debian Configuration :: Gnome Login Screen Fails To Start

Oct 6, 2015

Today I upgraded my system to the Nvidia driver 340.93 and 4.2.0-1 kernel on Debian Stretch.

While I wait for the gnome login screen to pop up I get the "Oh no something has gone wrong" message.

When I log in from another terminal and execute startx , gnome initiates and starts although settings like my resolution and other xserver settings are not loaded.

From the journalctl I believe the error is located in the following section:

Code: Select allOct 06 14:23:17 DEBIAN-PC org.a11y.atspi.Registry[1692]: SpiRegistry daemon is running with well-known name - org.a11y.atspi.Registry

Oct 06 14:23:17 DEBIAN-PC gnome-session[1680]: Major opcode of failed request:  154 (GLX)

[Code] ....

I reinstalled the xorg-xserver and the nvidia drivers and I get the same behavior.

Looking for some info in order to reconfigure the gnome-session to work?

Debian Configuration :: Firestarter Fails To Start On System Boot

Jul 11, 2011

I have just recently installed firestarter to get an idea of iptables editing with a GUI. Firestarter works great and I love it, however when I turn my system on, and my system is booting up the terminal displays a "Failed" message when attempting to start up firestarter. Now I have been doing my homework (reserch) and have read that a user will get this error because firestarter trys to load prior to the network manager starting up. I have also read some other variables that can cause this is if you use network manager and have a password on your user account (which I do have) can cause this issue.

However in most cases from what I have read is even though it gives the user a "Failed" startup message, once the user logs in, and is connected to the internet firestarter will actually load the iptables. I did some tests and from what I understand I can see that this is true because I have allowed access to certain torrent trackers, and denied access to others, and I can see some come online. Does firestarter load iptables once the user logs in? Or once it fails to load, does it not load at all unless you manually open/load the application. If firestarter just modifies iptables, then once I save my listings in firestarter then I really don't need it to start up correct?

Debian :: X11vnc Fails After Jessie Upgrade

Jan 18, 2016

Using x11vnc server on Debian host, and TightVNC viewer client on Windows 7. All was working fine until a server host upgrade, from Wheezy to Jessie. Now, when I try to connect, TightVNC retrieves the certificate as normal, compares and accepts it, and starts stunnel. The next step would normally be to prompt for the VNC password.

Instead it gives an error:

ReadExact: Socket error while reading.

I'm guessing that some thing is missing or misconfigured after the Jessie upgrade, which broke many other things too, as Debian upgrades always seem to do. I have removed and reinstalled the x11vnc package, no effect.

The errors in the log file don't mean a lot to me.

The server is started with this command:

Code: Select allx11vnc -ssl -display :0 -usepw >>vnc-log 2>&1 &

If I start it up without the -ssl flag, and connect from the Windows system with a different client (Mobaxterm) it all goes well.

Relevant part (tail) of the server log file:

Code: Select allThe SSL VNC desktop is:  myhost:0

Ubuntu Multimedia :: TV Card Fails To Work After Upgrade From Jaunty

Oct 30, 2010

I upgraded fro Jaunty to Karmic and then to Lucid and my TV card has stopped working. I had been informed that this was a result of the splitting of the linux-firmware into two separate packages, but having installed the linux-firmware-nonfree package the problem persists. The card is a Hauppauge WinTV PCI and although it is properly recognised by commands like lsmod, lspci and in the sound card settings, I can't tune in a single channel. It worked out of the box in Jaunty. Is there anything else that needs to be done to get the nonfree firmware working properly?

Debian :: Full-upgrade Fails At Stopping Fancontrol

Jul 11, 2015

summary: `sudo aptitude full-upgrade` (to jessie) ran long time before hanging @

Code: Select allSetting up fancontrol (1:3.3.5-2) ...
Installing new version of config file /etc/init.d/fancontrol ...
[ ok ] Stopping fan speed regulator: fancontrol.

Killing the job produced damage detailed below. How best to proceed?


I'm upgrading a 7-year-old 64-bit Clevo/System76 laptop to jessie. My first run of `sudo aptitude full-upgrade` ended after fetching packages, with the following lines ending the console spew:

Code: Select allGet: 2051 jessie/main user-setup all 1.61 [196 kB]
Fetched 1,816 MB in 17min 38s (1,715 kB/s)
E: This installation run will require temporarily removing the essential package python:amd64 due to a Conflicts/Pre-Depends loop. This is often bad, but if you really want to do it, activate the APT::Force-LoopBreak option.
E: Internal Error, Could not early remove python:amd64 (2)

So I started a second run with `sudo aptitude -o APT::Force-LoopBreak=true full-upgrade`. I left it running overnight, checking back periodically to OK overwriting `/etc/*` files with package-maintainer's versions. Friday I checked the box ~0900 and found

Only GUI application running was `gnome-terminal`, with the upgrade running in a single tab. This was working as intended, since I closed all other apps, and all but one `gnome-terminal` tab, before starting the upgrade. desktop environment (DE)=Cinnamon (also as intended) mouse was non-responsive: swiping the touchpad produced no movement keyboard appeared non-responsive (but more on that below) internal fan was running apparently full-speed (certainly as loud as I've ever heard it) console spew ended with the following 3 lines:

Code: Select allSetting up fancontrol (1:3.3.5-2) ...
Installing new version of config file /etc/init.d/fancontrol ...
[ ok ] Stopping fan speed regulator: fancontrol.

I left it running in hope the upgrade would recover, but after 7 hours nothing had changed, so I attempted to kill the job. The following all failed:

invoking shutdown via desktop menu (neither mouse movement nor pressing Super key produced any change) C-c/Ctrl-c in the terminal tab (nothing changed in the GUI) A-F2/Alt-F2 (trying to run another `gnome-terminal` to run `sudo shutdown -Ph now`, but no dialog appeared) C-A-F1 (to goto tty1 and run `sudo shutdown -Ph now`, but again no change in GUI/X)

The good news is, the box did reboot after `A-SysRq-[REISUB]`, though only to tty1. From there, `sudo dpkg --audit` produces these results.

So obviously the upgrade is incomplete; how best to resume it, or to debug the current situation before resuming? I'd prefer to fix the problem with `fancontrol` before proceeding, since the previous `full-upgrade` was quite long-running.

FWIW I also recorded the packages that the previous/broken `aptitude full-upgrade` wanted to {add, remove, upgrade}, and note that package=`fancontrol` is one that `aptitude` wanted to upgrade. So I'd like to know if I should just

Configure unpacked-but-not-yet-configured packages as directed by `dpkg --audit` reconfigure only-half-configured packages as directed by `dpkg --audit` process triggers for packages awaiting processing of triggers as directed by `dpkg --audit` reinstall packages missing md5sums as directed by `dpkg --audit` create a list of packages to remove (from those listed in the previous upgrade) add `fancontrol` to that list run `sudo aptitude remove [list of packages]` from tty1 create a list of packages to add and upgrade (from those listed in the previous upgrade) delete `fancontrol` from that list run `sudo aptitude install [list of packages]` from tty1 rerun `sudo aptitude full-upgrade` from tty1 (hoping that cleans up any remaining upgrade work, and does not try to reinstall package=`fancontrol`)
