(SOLVED) Latest xserver updates bork my VSIDO
« on: November 25, 2016, 06:33:55 AM »
So like it says in the title!  :D  Ran a 'UP' (another perfect alias) and was totally 'burned' by xorg.  I played around with it for a bit, but needed to be up and running so I restored yesterdays fsa archive!

Just a heads up and a place to ponder this...  ???

No warning from apt-get, or list of packages getting held back?

Nothing held back.  Just a typical dist-up.  A couple of scrots...

To be removed:


To be upgraded:


Upon completion, no X.  Just ends up at a TTY.  I can log in and do whatever then, just no X.  Tried all the tricks I know to get it back, (xorg/X/xserver. whatever...) to no avail.  Just decided in the end to stop trying to figure out something I knew nothing about, and restored the previous days fsarchive.  Now I'm just holding off on the 'UP' till someone says otherwise...

Same here. No warnings regarding xorg AFAIK. But want to remove the Xserver and nvidia drivers all together.  Apparently the last recent big Xorg upgrade is messy once again.

https://forum.siduction.org/index.php?topic=6455.0

Maybe it's only affecting multiarch systems. Not sure. I don't know when the heck multiarch went in as a depeendency of something... maybe. As far as I remember I wanted to keep it away and never got the intention of installing it, but here it is. Didn't tried to solve the xorg issue this way whatsoever.

And there you have it. When did I ever put in multiarch support for anything?  ??? This is a mystery to me as well...   ???

might just be the libc6 updates. Either of you running something 32-bit on a 64-bit system - like Skype?

I would wait a day or two - part of X is still being removed while the rest is being updated - and I don't see either of those packages in the to be updated group.

Strictly anecdotal evidence, but whenever I see that scenario with X, python, or perl running the upgrade breaks something.

I've not tried to update again.  Just didn't want to fight with it.  I've been updating pretty much daily for many moons now.  In the past though, I've gone a month before so a few days wont hurt.  This is being discussed, as Snap linked above, on other forums so not too worried about it.

I'll forever be indebted to VastOne for showing me fsarchive!  A wonderful tool that has been included in VSIDO since day 1!  Much thanks sir!  What a fast way to get your entire system back.  My root BU to .fsa produces an archive file around 2.2 Gb's.  Restores in about a minute flat!   8)

Code: [Select]
apt-cache rdepends multiarch-support

Will tell you what brings-in multiarch-support.

^ Wow, the list of packages is huge! Thanks for the tip, hackerdefo. No idea why this happened. I'm not aware of using any  32 bit software, but I have a real mess here for some reason. Anyway, as jedi already pointed out, a little wait won't hurt.  Let's wait for the xorg transition to settle.

Whenever I change my main system I'll pin multiarch-support to avoid it sliding in again... Or just going back to 32 bit systems.

There seems a slight misunderstanding  ;)
All of those packages are not installed on your system! Some of them are, but not all of them.
"apt-cache rdepends multiarch-support" will also list those packages that are not installed but pre-requires "multiarch-support".

Much more better way of finding the installed-only list is following,

Code: [Select]
apt-rdepends --state-follow=Installed --state-show=Installed multiarch-support

You will need "apt-rdepends" package installed for the above command.

Yet another way of doing the same is with "aptitude",

Code: [Select]
aptitude why multiarch-support

Output is not as detailed as "apt-rdepends" but should be good-enough for most cases.

Cheers!!!

I said fuck it and upgraded...  ???  ???  ???

Rebooting now

xserver-xorg-input-vmmouse is for vmware which I do not have and xserver-xorg-video-sisusb is for SiS USB display driver which I have no clue about nor need nor will ever need

Will release a primal scream if I cannot boot to X
