Re: GNOME gdm service does not start after upgrade

The problem as such has nothing to do with GNOME or KDE.
Perhaps it is a package upgrade issue.
If the new version moves its systemd service file to another location (here from /usr/lib64 to /lib)
it might recreate(if enabled) its 'enable link' in /etc/systemd/..., too?

Re: GNOME gdm service does not start after upgrade

Yes, I did! gdm.service works, too but gdm-plymouth.service is somehow cleaner. # cd /etc/systemd/system # rm display-manager.service # systemctl enable gdm # ls -l ... display-manager.service -> /usr/lib/systemd/system/gdm.service # ls -l /usr/lib/systemd/system/gdm.service ... /usr/lib/systemd/sys...

Re: Kernel 4.19.

WARNING WARNING
Not yet in the stable kernel is any fix to the "EXT4 corruption issue" introduced in Linux 4.19

Do not boot 4.19 to avoid data corruption.
We still wait for a fix aka next Version 4.19.8

GNOME gdm service does not start after upgrade

Hello, again: After updating yesterday(see below), GNOME gdm login service did not start. Instead, I got a login-shell and found a broken link: # cd /etc/systemd/system # ls -l ... display-manager.service -> /usr/lib64/systemd/system/gdm-plymouth.service # systemctl status display-manager.service Un...

Re: Repo Main: Nvidia Kernel Module Upgrade Breaks Login

I think the issue is resolved. Probably, it is not possible calling 'nvidia-drivers-396.54-r1.ebuild' function pkg_postinst() with a kernel-version parameter. Something like: pkg_postinst(kver) { : use dracut && sabayon-dracut --rebuild -r $kver } It might be good having an elog entry when dracut st...

Re: Repo Main: Nvidia Kernel Module Upgrade Breaks Login

In other words the rebuild-all in v4.18 does produce a version-mismatch for v4.14(the new version for v4.14 installs later)

Re: Repo Main: Nvidia Kernel Module Upgrade Breaks Login

Ok, thanks for the hint...
the real reason behind rebuilding the boot environment is the 'nvidia-userspace' upgrade.
As long as there is no version-matching..rebuilding is not required for some versions.
In the step for v4.18 we still have the old kernel-module of v4.14 in the system.

Re: Repo Main: Nvidia Kernel Module Upgrade Breaks Login

@joost A question....when I look at the timestamps does this mean, 'use dracut && sabayon-dracut --rebuild-all' rebuilds version 4.18.0 again after 4.14.0 has been installed: 13:25 nvidia.ko v4.18 has been installed --> here dracut builds for new v4.18(!!!) and old v4.14(???) 13:26 nvidia.ko v4.14 h...
