Gnome-Shell Upgrade Trouble

Post by flexoron » Fri Sep 20, 2019 0:46

Hello,

Repository: sabayonlinux.org
Revision: 4015
Gnome-Shell: 3.32

Gnome-Shell has been upgraded this time and crashed after gdm login process:
systemd-coredump[1788]: Process 1764 (gnome-shell) of user 1000 dumped core
and gdm login screen starts again.

It turned out that an extension caused the issue.

Solution: Switch to emergency shell. Disable all extensions.

Code: Select all

Ctrl-Alt F2
# cd ~/.local/share/gnome-shell
# mv extensions ~
# mkdir extensions
CTRL-ALT F1
Login again, gnome-shell should start now.

Now activate extensions again one by one:

Code: Select all

# cd ~/extensions
# mv extension1 ~/.local/share/gnome-shell/extensions
Logout
Login and see whether extension1 works
Next extension

Code: Select all

# mv extension2 ~/.local/share/gnome-shell/extensions
and so on.

This way I found a troublemaker: [email protected]
Download new version extensionsabteil.org.v9.shell-extension.zip for gnome-shell 3.32,
unzip and

Code: Select all

# mv extensionsabteil.org.v9.shell-extension ~/.local/share/gnome-shell/extensions/[email protected]
Solved
