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

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.

Re: nodejs package installs unsupported npm version

I resolved this by installing yarn, the second suggestion in the message.
Yarn is an alternative to npm.

Code: Select all

npm install yarn -g
Then I ran the create app. The command is slightly different.

Code: Select all

yarn global add create-react-native-app
Success!

Re: Static DNS servers not written to resolv.conf

Kind of Solved... I changed from NetworkManager to wicd for connection management and disabled NetworkManager, under systemd done with "systemctl disable NetworkManager". Now instead of dropping within a few minutes with NetworkManager, with wicd the connection stays up much better. I'm using wicd-c...
