VSIDO Discussions / Re: SpaceFM replacement
« on: September 22, 2014, 02:40:05 PM »
I get that and I'm not blaming IgnorantGuru for the being fed up with the bs, but still this whole mutex issue seems just sloppy, maybe that is just due to a lack of understanding?   

Honestly, I didn't live with 4pane that long, I discovered spacefm shortly after I tried it and being a photographer the thumbnails made the choice easy.  This probably could answer any questions about 4pane.  http://www.4pane.co.uk/manual/Contents.htm

Personally I'd rather ditch debian than let them break spacefm, but I feel like I should mention 4pane which is a strong runner up to spacefm, it only loses due to its lack of visual effects like thumbnails.

Yep...  :'(

I installed recently with the Aug 21 iso, I haven't changed the kernel or spacefm from the defaults, the only thing I can think that I'm doing differently is running spacefm in daemon mode, maybe I just need to reboot to break it...

I just want to add that I'm getting "Attempt to unlock mutex that was not locked" for disk-manager too, but spacefm still seems to be working as expected...

Thanks for the thought, I've been bashing my head against this on and off ever since I installed vsido a few weeks ago, thankfully my #! with sid is not experiencing any of this outside of the occasional 404s, but then I also didn't install that during all this release upheaval.  The lightdm issue doesn't bug me personally as much as I've been meaning to give just xinit a go for a while and if I get tired of that I've been wanting to try cdm. :)

Nope, I don't have java-8, i tried installing it the other day to see if that helped, but as it didn't I removed it again...

No and xinit is not necessary (nor is starx) to successfully boot to X..  and is not a part of VSIDO by design

I recall using startx in the past from another package though... it also seems to me that smxi also depends on startx .. I will research more and find it in the hallows of my fading memories

Out of curiosity, what other ways are there to boot to X without xinit or a display manager?  I looked at packages.debian.org, but the only package I can find with startx is xinit, I'm wondering what you are recalling now too. :)

I'm fully updated minus "live-config-sysvinit" which needs the dpkg issue resolved.  If I full remove openjdk-7 openjdk-6 gets automatically selected for installation and vica versa, both have the same issues, openjdk-8 too....

Did you install the xinit package?  I was surprised when I noticed vsido didn'thave xinit by default which has startx.

Me too, I think it has something to do with systemd....
It booted fine yesterday before I updated, I'm pretty sure I saw both lightdm and systemd update...

Code: [Select]
$ systemctl status lightdm.service

Edit: As a workaround I installed xinit and added "exec startfluxbox" to my ~/.xinitrc.  It didn't autoload my .Xresources though...
