Re: KAlarm, Akonadi, and MariaDB Errors

I found where the socket is found on Sabayon and tried to run the command modified from the link. mariadb --socket=/run/user/1001/akonadi/mysql.socket -e 'create database mysql' I believe it is using MariaDB and not MySQL but there's no update_mariadb like for mysql. Now when I start akonadi I get t...

Recently KAlarm stopped working, I was unable to create or update alarms, I have errors like "Failed to insert new part into database." and "Cannot connect to the Akonadi service." After stopping then starting Akonadi from the command line I noticed many database code "1452" errors and others. I rea...

Re: KDE fails at xinit after recent update [Solved]

I just finish a new large update of Sabayon and KDE is now working. Other than the update any changes I made were put back like the original. I can only guess as to the cause, perhaps a kernel that was installed in the update just before it broke, maybe it didn't work with the graphics driver.

Re: KDE fails at xinit after recent update

I read at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/X/Troubleshooting/Freeze that most of the GPU freezes tend to be bugs in the kernel. I was at 4.4 so I changed to 4.9. That didn't work. I'll try some different versions and see what happens. They also suggested that when the freeze happens after an update try to ba...

Re: KDE fails at xinit after recent update

I don't know much about this but it looks like it is locking up within Xorg. Notice the "running task" below. Xorg itself wasn't updated but maybe a configuration or permission was changed. journalctl --since "2019-1-9 09:18:00" Jan 09 09:20:00 sabayonx86-64 kernel: INFO: rcu_sched self-detected sta...

Re: KDE fails at xinit after recent update

Thanks for responding... I was using sddm and the file /etc/systemd/system/display-manager.service looked the same as yours. I disabled sddm, installed lightdm and enabled it then tried it again with the same result of freezing with trying to load the GUI. For now I have disabled the GUI from bootin...

KDE fails at xinit after recent update [Solved]

After I updated a couple days ago my laptop froze where I could see a virtual console login but couldn't type anything to login and couldn't change consoles with Ctl+Alt+F2 or F3, etc. and couldn't ssh into it. I had to hold the power button to power off and restart. I was able to boot into rescue m...

Re: nodejs package installs unsupported npm version

I installed the 4.X npm from npm itself.

Code: Select all

npm install [email protected] -g
the 'X' in 4.X means the latest 4.x version.
It still loads npm 5.0.3 initally, didn't fix the packaging issue, but npm is working fine, no error messages, with the re-installed 4.X version.

Re: nodejs package installs unsupported npm version

Spoke too early. As I continued, this doesn't really fix the problem. When I use other commands:

Code: Select all

create-react-native-app project-name
The issues is still there. Evidently that command uses npm.

I guess I'll have to figure out how to install the older 4.X npm.
