Multiple issues after today's update [Solved]

Postby vedg » Sun Sep 29, 2013 11:50

Hi,

I'm using Sabayon Linux for about 4 months.
Update every week, upgrade kernel as soon as it is available.
I've not get myself into trouble until today.

Today I updated system, as usual.
After reboot I experienced many different issues:
1) Slow xfce startup - few times slower - about 30 seconds (after successful login in lightdm).
2) Can't start Firefox:
Code: Select all
(process:5346): GLib-CRITICAL **: g_slice_set_config: assertion `sys_page_size == 0' failed

** (firefox:5346): ERROR **: Resource problem creating '/tmp/orbit-igor'
Trace/breakpoint trap


3) Midori crashes on some sites.

4) Virtualbox doesn't start:
Code: Select all
Failed to crate the VirtualBox COM object.
The application will now terminate.
Details
Callee RC:
NS_ERROR_FACTORY_NOT_REGISTERED (0x80040154)


5) xfce panel audio mixer plugin crashes.

6) reboot from menu doesn't work: have to use the power button or reboot from terminal.

7) totem doesn't start
Code: Select all
** (totem:5426): WARNING **: Couldn't register with accessibility bus: Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken.
Bus error


8 ) Qt designer doesn't start:
Code: Select all
Qt: Session management error: Authentication Rejected, reason : None of the authentication protocols specified are supported and host-based authentication failed
Bus error


9) xfburn doesn't start:
Code: Select all
** Message: Using UDEV
Bus error


10) exaile doesn't start:
Code: Select all
INFO    : Loading Exaile 3.3.1 on Python 2.7.5...
INFO    : Loading settings...
** Message: pygobject_register_sinkfunc is deprecated (GstObject)
Bus error


Many other applications, which I tried, work.
But these 10 issues is more than enough touble for me :(

I have tried booting with both kernels 3.10 and 3.11 - same issues.
I have x64 system, xfce desktop.
I use systemd; nvidia opengl and opencl.

EDITED: sabayon-weekly repository.

Any help is appreciated, thanks.

One more issue:
output in gnome-terminal is clipped (less than 100 lines) although scroll set to unlimited,
when set to some large value it is still clipped the same way.

Just started in recovery mode, pressed CTRL+D on prompt, and all problems disappeared!
Rebooted to normal mode - problems return.
So I'll use recovery mode for now.
This is better than returning to my old Linux Mint 14 :)

But still I'd like to fix the problem and be able to work in normal mode.

Did you run after upgrade

Code: Select all
equo deptest
and
Code: Select all
equo libtest
?

Please post the output of

Code: Select all
eselect kernel list
and
Code: Select all
eselect bzimage list


Is it possible that sabayon-weekly AND sabayonlinux.org repositories are enabled?

I have a bit outdated IPP library, installed by emerge.
Some related files are shown in libtest.
But I don't think, that it's the source of trouble, because no other package depends on it.
I installed this library using emerge, because there is no binary version of this package in Sabayon repository:
https://packages.sabayon.org/quicksearch?q=ipp&x=0&y=0
Besides, I've seen this libtest problem for a few weeks and only yesterday serious problems appeared.

Chances are, your problem is somewhere in .gconf and .gconfd or /tmp.

My suggestions: First, trying renaming .gconf and .gconfd, and restarting (which will generate new files).

Code: Select all
$ mv ~/.gconf ~/.gconf.bak
$ mv ~/.gconfd ~/.gconfd.bak


Then restart. If that doesn't fix anything, you should be able to move them back.

If it doesn't fix anything: what is the output of
Code: Select all
$ ls -la /tmp

Thank you so much, Stupot!
There was indeed the problem with /tmp.

I have separate 10 GB partition for /tmp and /var on HDD to protect SSD from wearing.
I know, it's not important now, when SSD are so reliable, but I was overcautious with my new SSD :)

So, to the point, that partition was full.
After running
Code: Select all
# equo cleanup

there is only 1 GB left on that partition.

Of course, I returned my gconf and gconfd in place.

This elegant solution leaves me with one question:
why wasn't there a problem for recovery boot mode?

When you boot into recovery mode, you aren't actually using root from your drive. You are actually using a temp file system. It's probably doing the same thing for /tmp, which makes sense since the disk file systems are mounted as read-only when first booting into recovery.
