Slackware :: Vim Freeze At Startup When In Ssh Session

Jan 16, 2011

I have been using vim for years without problem but today I have met one weird scenario which I can't solve it after troubleshoot for the whole day and google around. This happen to my 2 machine at home which both installed with Slackware 13.1..I just got my laptop done setup with Slackware 13.1 and I ssh from my laptop to my desktop that have vim installed. I use one of my laptop virtual console to do the ssh login to that desktop.

And using vim in that laptop virtual console and Konsole itself, all works fine. The problem only occur when I ssh into the desktop using a virtual console.It seems like if I supply the vim specifically a .vimrc, it will work fine. It seems like it's taking forever to find the .vimrc file. But if I remove that .vimrc, it will also freeze. If I create a new user in that desktop and ssh again and then do vim, it will also freeze.Any one face this strange problem before ? I know I can still use Konsole to ssh and do vim, but I wish to solve this and since vim is been there for so long, I think this problem will most likely faced by someone before.

Debian :: Ssh Session Freeze After Any Command?

May 26, 2010

I have debian squeeze server at work, acting as gateway, and home computer with debian sid (amd64). OpenVPN is working on server ecure connections from internet. So my home computer is connected to work server via openvpn almost 24/7. Some days ago i faced strange problem - when i make ssh session from home to work, via openvpn connection, i can login to work server, but after any command on remote console i have blank screen and nothing happening on it. Only exit is pressing Enter ~ . In server's auth log are messages about session opening and closing only.When i ssh to server from local network at workplace - via putty or native ssh - it works without any problems. I can do anything.But from home I can only login.

Ubuntu :: Incorrect Password Causes Freeze When Unlocking Session?

Apr 1, 2011

After locking my GUI session, if I type my password incorrectly when I come to unlock it, the system often (not always) seems to hang for a long time, with the text "Checking..." displayed. The length of time can be many minutes.The system is not actually frozen - if I hit CTL+ALT+F6 I can log on to a console session, from which I can see a tty7 process (i.e. the GUI session) using the 'ps' command. Sometimes the only way I can recover is to kill this process, upon which a new GUI session starts up, but this is undesirable as I lose any open applications.

Slackware :: KDE4 - X Won't Start On System

Jan 3, 2010

I did a clean install, and so far I haven't noticed any serious problems with KDE4, although I can't find what I'm looking for, usually. I don't use my laptop much though. I also did a clean install on another system to 13.0 about the same time. X won't start on that system, it can't figure out the hardware I guess.

So I've just been using the command line. I don't really need a graphical interface on that system anyway. Right now I'm using the motherboard graphics support, but I will probably install a video card in a PCI-E slot and try X again. The system that I just upgraded from 12.2 (LUKS encrypted volumes and LVM) to 13.0 tonight has a number of problems. This was an upgrade, not a clean install. Based on my experience so far on this system, KDE4 does not seem to be ready for prime time. It is buggy, the menu system is more difficult to navigate than KDE3, and there are some apps I just can't find (e.g., Kedit). Overall it seems to have fewer apps than KDE3. Either that or they are well hidden well enough that I can't find them. My first impression was that KDE4 had clean lines and a modern appearance.......

Slackware :: Where Are System Notifications In KDE4

KDE3 had in System Notifications a section for KDE System Notifications, where there were settings for critical message, question, startup, etc.In KDE4, that category seems to not be in System Notification Configuration. Where to I find those settings - sounds for errors, startup, etc.?

Slackware :: Can't Write To NTFS USB Drive In KDE4.6

May 11, 2011

I installed AlienBob's KDE 4.6.2 a few days ago to give it a shot.

I'm really satisfied with it and wish to keep it, but there's one thing bugging me : I can't write to my NTFS USB drives.

To be precise, I can write as much as I want to existing files, but I can't add nor delete files nor directories.

Worse, root isn't allowed either, even in runlevel 1 when mounted by hand (mount -t ntfs /dev/sde1 /mnt/foo).

Did I miss something to configure among the dependencies of KDE 4.6 ?

Output of /var/log/messages

Slackware :: KDE4 Can Only Play One Audio Stream

Apr 2, 2010

Every KDE4 application seems to take over the sound card. If I'm playing a song in Amarok and launch Dragon Player, the song stops. If I'm playing a song in an xterm using "mplayer -ao alsa" and then launch Dragon Player, the song stops. Most annoying of all, if I'm playing music in _anything_ and then a notification sounds in Kopete, the music stops.However, if I launch two xterms and play two different MP3s by running "mplayer -ao alsa" in each one, both songs play. So software mixing is working with my sound card.

This made me wonder if KDE is outputting music through OSS instead of ALSA. Well, KDE's audio backend is set to xine, and xine is outputting through ALSA. Under System Settings->Multimedia->Audio Ouput, the only devices I see.

Slackware :: KDE4 Wicd Startup - Turn Off?

Mar 13, 2010

I once had wicd running at KDE startup as I was just playing around with it. The problem is I now have turned off rc.wicd and don't want to use wicd any more. Every time I start KDE it still asks for the root password which I cancel and it then tells me it can't connect to wicd's dbus. This is getting really annoying as I have been trawling through my ~ looking for the setting that starts this up. I just want wicd turning off completely and this message to go away.

Slackware :: Mouse Behavior In KDE4 Konqueror

May 27, 2010

I installed 13.1 last night and started playing with KDE4.4.3. I'm talking about Konqueror as a file manager only here. My default view is to have the folder tree in the left pane, with a detailed view pane on the right. In KDE3, I use the "Tree List View".In KDE3, I had my mouse set to "double-click to open files and folders". However, in KDE3's konqueror, you could still navigate the folder tree with a single click. One click on a folder in the left pane would show the folder's contents in the right pane, or a double click in the left pane would expand the tree to show subdirectories. I could still single-click on files in the right pane to highlight them without opening them.

In KDE4's konqueror, it requires a double-click to do anything with the folders, either to display in the right pane or expand the tree. It's a lot more effort just to get around in the folder tree. I found the Mouse setting in the System Settings that changes overall single-click/double-click behavior. If it's on single-click, it's easier to navigate the folder tree but then I end up opening files I don't want to just by trying to highlight them with a click.I dug through Konqueror's settings in both KDE3 and KDE4 but couldn't find what gave me behavior I liked in KDE3 or how to duplicate it in KDE4. In KDE3, the system setting is on double-click, but there doesn't seem to be a konqueror-specific mouse setting to customize it. Anyone else notice this? Is this hard-coded into konqueror, and it changed from 3 to 4?

Slackware :: Remove '.desktop' After KDE4 Icons?

Aug 29, 2010

how to remove the '.desktop' suffix appended to my icons? I unintentionally installed the 64-bit S13.1 when I wanted the 32-bit version - anybody notice the misleading text around the hole on the DVD? The 'Slackware 13.1 (amd64)' side is the 32-bit and the 'Slackware 13.1 (1386)' side is actually the 64-bit version. It fooled me, anyway, and after finding out how limited software choice was I spat the dummy and went back to 32 :/ But...with Desktop Settings>Activity set to 'Folder View' I now have this unwanted suffix added to my icons. Also, if I'm in my home directory via Dolphin and I create new folders they also appear out on the desktop!

Slackware :: Unable To Change Time In KDE4.4.1?

Mar 29, 2010

I am currently running KDE4.4.1 from AlienBob, and now with the change to BST I noticed that my clock hasn't changed. So I go to change it through SystemSettings and it shows a message thus:-

Quote: You are not allowed to save the configuration

This happens as both normal user and root. Googling around seems to suggest this error is tied to a Kauth/PolicuKit/polkit problem, which aren;t provided yet in Slackware as far as I am aware.

Slackware :: Alsa / Kde4 Sound System Messing?

Jun 23, 2010

Slackware 13.1_64, everything works like a charm,BUTevery time my slackware boots up,the sound system changes from one device to another.So if I boot now, sound address is hw:1.0.
then if I reboot, the sound address becomes hw:0.0It's really annoying, because every time I have to re-run xmms and mplayer setup to get any sound!Also, if any program is playing audio (like xmms), other programs cannot play audio at the same if I'm listening music with xmms then I try opening some video with mplayer or firefox/flash, I get no audio on this video....What's the deal with kde phonon? I thought it was supposed to be the new global sound system for kde4, like arts was for kde3

Slackware :: Samba Clinet Not Working Right In KDE4 And Slack 13.1?

Jun 1, 2010

needed was working either out of the box or with the addition of a few slackbuilds from Slackbuilds.orgOne or two problems which I will make separate posts for :Problem with the samba client - my home server has a large samba share on it that I need to access from teh laptop that is running 13.1. If I type smb:/ into the dolphin or konqueror address bar, I get to see the network and the servers. I even see the shared folder on the server. However, on trying to open this folder I get : Quote:The process for the smb://<my-server-name> protocol died suddenlyI know that the server is serving OK, because from the command line I can do a

mount.cifs //<same-server-name>/<folder-name> /<somewhere-on-my-filesystem>
command and I can browse the shared folder from that <somewhere-on-my-filesystem> either at the command line

Slackware :: Fresh Install Of KDE4 Can't See Internal / External Drives

Jan 21, 2010

Any kde app(dolphin, device notifier...) can't see my internal drive with ntfs and any connected flash drive. I've thought that this is problem with missing dependecies or hal but 'lshal -m' shows messages when J connect flash drive so i don't know where the problem is. I've installed all required and recommended and some optional packages from URL...and it has no effect. Does anybody know what i have to do to make it work.

Slackware :: KDE4.4.5 Crashes When Starting Language Settings In Systemsettings?

Dec 3, 2010

I am trying to switch to KDE4.4.5 on my main machine. I installed the KDE packages and also the german language file. Everything works fine except the language settings. When I try to start it crash and a KDE crash dialog opens that gives this "developer information":


Application: System Settings (systemsettings), signal: Segmentation fault
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/share/gdb/auto-load/usr/lib/", line 9, in <module>
from gobject import register


It works on my netbook. I run on both machines Slackware 13.1. The only difference I can think of is that KDE was pre-installed on my netbook and I just upgraded it. On my main machine I installed all packages except the packages of kde and kdei.

Slackware :: Command To Create Local Mirror Of Alien Bob's Kde4.4.0 Packages?

Feb 10, 2010

I know there has to be an easier way to do this than to download each file individually. On an ftp site I would just use
PHP Code...

But with those files being on an HTTP server and wget not supporting HTTP file globbing I'm at a loss.

What is a one step method to recursively download all files in a directory on an HTTP server?

Slackware :: Fixed Conky / KDE4 Transparency - Doesn't Disappear When Click Desktop

Jun 19, 2010

This works on my Slackware64 13.1 using KDE 4.4.4, Conky version 1.8.0. This is a simple .conkyrc tweak that doesn't need feh, it doesn't have the distracting faun shadow-border and most importantly, it doesn't disappear when you click your desktop (On my system anyway). These are the relevant sections to edit:

own_window_colour black
own_window_hints undecorated,below,sticky,skip_taskbar,skip_pager
own_window_transparent yes
own_window_type override
own_window yes

I found that getting rid of the own_window_argb_values yes suggested in other fixes and replacing it with a specific alpha and then changing window type to override solved all my issues. I've noticed no bugs or strange happenings. This seems to be a common problem with a lot of workaround solutions. I think this is a much more elegant way. Edit: Not persistant... After 2 reboots it's back to normal.

While loading I can move mouse and if I hit caps_lock the lamp at the keyboard turns on and off.

In the setup I choosed to use vesa - allthoug I afterr that even tried to boot from lilo into vga-mode.

I am, a litle rusty after have been brainwashed through Ubuntu for a few years (sigh) - so I really am not sure which config-file I should edit, and xorg.conf seems to be empty.

Slackware :: Total Freeze After Installing Wicd Using Slackpkg

Nov 23, 2010

I have installed Slackware 13.1 without a problem and have a working wired ethernet connection. However I need to set up wireless but each time I try to do this using wicd I have a total system crash during the start up screens at the very last line before the welcome line appears.

Nothing works to resolve it, and I need to press and hold the start button and restart. I have checked the md5sum, installed the software again several times but the same happens each time which results in me having to reinstall.

I have installed wicd using slackpkg update, then slackpkg install wicd.

I have also tried downloading wicd from the slackware /extras folder and installing it on its own. Either way the same happens.

I have tried various manual approaches to setting up wireless following various links but again without success.

I now have a clean install again but am not wanting the same to happen.

Can anyone suggest what I might need to do?

I am using an intel Pentium 4, 2.53 ghz, 512Mb ram, GeForce4 MX 440.
