Title: New Xorg updates have borked my Liqourix setup
Post by: VastOne on July 26, 2013, 05:35:32 AM
I just did a dist-upgrade and allowed it all to run... On my Liquorix boot, I get a login prompt and no X at all...  I have tried all my known magic and have yet to get X to load...  Including reinstalling the drivers via smxi, removing xorg.conf and wiping clean all kernel parameters on boot

This is a Nvidia machine, BTW

I ran the same updates on Debian Stock kernels and have not seen the issue

Just wanted to let you all know and be wary... I will keep you posted of any new developments

Thanks VastOne. I was just about to update. You saved me some reinstall time Im sure

Edit:

Because Im a masochist I decided to let all the updates install and then rebooted with no problem.

I should also note that this is on

Code: [Select]
3.9-10.dmz.1-liquorix-amd64

and the Nvidia beta driver


Edit #2

I did just notice that Chromium is doing what I posted about a while ago, it crashes and kills Fluxbox.
Heres my x-session error

Definitely a bug in X-org. My machine is up and running but not totally stable.

Nvidia settings crashed on my so I ran it with

Code: [Select]
sudo nvidia-settings --sync
and this is the error I get when it crashes

Code: [Select]
luke@vsido-fx:~$ sudo nvidia-settings --sync
The program 'nvidia-settings' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadWindow (invalid Window parameter)'.
  (Details: serial 781 error_code 3 request_code 137 minor_code 4)
  (Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
   that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
   To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
   option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
   backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)

Ill run updates again tomorrow and see if we get a fix for this.

Yes they have.
I had to unwind it last night.
I got kernel panics on boot (on another distro) which I suppose was due to plymouth, X, Nvidia or a combination of them.

I have done all I can to resolve this on my main partition to no avail...

I have tried plain nouveau... fail

I have tried debian-nvidia... fail

I have installed the debian 3.10 kernel... fail with all combinations of Xorg drivers ... fail

I have moved to another partition and ran all updates with no issues at all

Hopefully an update will hit soon to resolve

ah...
I am running a 3.8 generic Debian kernel.

I ran the dist-upgrade on my HP i3 laptop, intel video, custom compiled 3.9.9 kernel.

No issues to date.

It appears to be nVidia only?  Liquorix only?

Strange one indeed, yes...

What is the current liquorix kernel version?

When I tried to install the nvidia drivers (from their site) for the 3.10.0 kernel (custom compile) on my debian testing desktop, it was a major fail. I didn't try to install with smxi. I ended up going with the 3.9.9 kernel and nvidia installed fine. It's an older nvidia card, 7-series.

Long story short, I'm thinking nvidia doesn't work too well with newer xorg or kernels.

Post by: lwfitz on July 26, 2013, 07:58:01 PM
Ummm Im not sure the exact kernel version for Liquorix but I am on the newest and via smxi the drivers install perfect (before last nights update). If you had nouveau installed then its normal for the install to fail. Just run the install again.
Title: Re: New Xorg updates have borked my Liqourix setup
Post by: PackRat on July 26, 2013, 08:29:08 PM
I black list the nouveau drivers, boot to console, install the nvidia drivers - no smxi.

Any time I update the kernel, I get to do that little song and dance. It was the method to use for slackware and I just kept doing it for debian.
Title: Re: New Xorg updates have borked my Liqourix setup
Post by: VastOne on July 26, 2013, 08:39:12 PM
Latest Liquorix kernel is at 3.9-1

This used to happen every time there was an Xorg update 2-3 years ago but nVidia got a lot better with their delivery... I am sure it is a nVidia issue and a new driver will correct it soon enough

In the meantime, I am enjoying this VSIDO setup with Debians 3.10-1... Memory is low, CPU usage is low and no spikes in CPU or MEM while mouse usage or scrolling that DID pop back up with the liquorix kernel.  I am using stock Debian vid drivers and everything seems to be completely functional, no issues at all.  Long story short is that I will most likely stay with this setup

As a wrap on this, I did not wait for the fix to come... I had everything on this drive backed up via fsarchiver and I restored it and stayed with the Debian kernel

A long way around to get back to ground zero, but nothing was lost in the end... (except my patience!)
Title: Re: New Xorg updates have borked my Liqourix setup
Post by: lwfitz on July 28, 2013, 07:38:20 AM
I still had the original kernel installed from my install so I just dropped back to

Code: [Select]
3.9-1-amd64

and then reinstalled nvidia via smxi.

X-org seems back to normal now.

^ I tried that and two other kernels and even installed the latest debian and still xorg puked...

Glad to see it worked for you...  :)

I didn't want to bork VSIDO after hearing all the glad tidings concerning xorg and the new Liquorix Kernel.  So I borked another distro instead.  It definitely doesn't play nice with nvidia.  Switched to the Siduction Kernel (towo) still no joy.  Switched to Debian 3.10 still no joy.  Switched back to an archived Liquorix (I think it was 3.8-13) and it went fine.  Got all of it back to working order.  Think I'll stick with what I have in VSIDO for the next few days/week or so...

I just took a new install of VSIDO's latest ISO's with 3.10 Debian kernel to Liquorix 3.9-11 and used the smxi nVidia Beta (325.08) install successfully.  This has the latest Xorg... so what borked on me is now rebuild-able without issues

Post by: VastOne on July 30, 2013, 06:25:38 PM

Only noticeable problem for me was Comptons resource use reaching occasional 100% of cpu-s, and never falling under 10% in idle. More in detail: --backend-glx was the problem creator.
Downgrade to Liquorix 3.8.13 + nvidia 319 driver resolved the issue for me.

Just updated and rebooted, this time booting back into

Code: [Select]
3.9-10.dmz.1-liquorix-amd64

and reinstalled nvidia via smxi and everything seems back to normal.
