SolydXK 10 202006 testing

Postby Arjen Balfoort » 03 Jun 2020 14:20

I think it is time for another SolydXK 10 update.

I have just finished uploading the updated ISOs here:
https://downloads.solydxk.com/nightly/

If you have time to check it out, please use the below document to report back any issues.

You can download the test document here:

So far so good - one small issue is the mouseover tooltip in the Notification area. If I hover over the network connection the tooltip is trying to pop under and therefore vanishes. I have fixed this in the past by altering the Max Icon Size in the notification are but that has not worked this time - still pops under.

Other than that is all looks good - thanks for all the hard work!

Was it SolydX or SolydK?
Did you test on metal or in a virtual machine?
If in a VM, which one?

Sorry - SolydX - I was just testing with a USB and the live ISO.

This is for an older machine that is currently running Debian Wheezy - want ed to see how it looked.

I am part way through testing both of the new iso's. There is a problem in each of them, I am unable to get to the log-in screen. Using ctrl+alt+backspace or going through the menu just freezes the computer. There is no cursor and the keyboard is unresponsive. Maybe this is just in Live session? I am continuing on to some installations.

Tested with Virtualbox 6.1.8-dfsg-1b1 (in our repo, 4096MB RAM, VMSVGA graphics) on SolydK 10 host.
Both SolydX and SolydK ISOs boot fine in BIOS and EFI.

How did you test it?

My previous post referred to the Live session only. It worked as expected on virtualbox, from the EE repository. However I now have installed the SolydK iso to metal and behavior is back and worse. Pressing ctrl+alt+backspace locks the computer. No cursor visible, no response to key presses, only to the power off button. The same thing happens when I click the Power off, restart, or logout buttons in the menu. Also the Welcome window does not see that my wifi is connected, that happened 3 times.
In general this has been very unstable, the computer has frozen up once each when using Welcome screen, Konsole, Kate and Firefox.

I was trying to post this from inside SolydK_10_64_202006 when I got a strange notification

Code: Select all

Message from syslogd@SolydXK at Jun 5 16:03:17
KERNEL:[952.220044] watchdog: BUG: soft lockup - CPU#1 stuck for 22s
[kworker/1:0:18]
I have never seen a message like that before. I happened to have a Konsole window open and saw that message was being repeated comtinuously, cycling through all the cpu cores. Then the computer froze again and I had to use the power button to close down.
I am writing this from an installation of SolydK-EE on the same laptop.
Completely stumped!

Please post the output of journalctl -p 3 -xb if thats possible. If not, you can access the system.log files without the help from systemd using your other install.

I have created a bootable USB with USB Creator with both ISOs.
My two laptops (old HP Stream and an even older Compaq) and my PC booted both ISOs fine.

Did you verify your download?

Yes I did the sha256sum -c and they both passed OK.
I haven't tried the solydX on metal yet but the SolydK boots up just fine. But the only way to get out of it is a hard power off. I have tried using the terminal restart or power off but it still freezes with no output.
Maybe this machine with dual graphics and the 4k display is too new Buster. I do have both of the enthusiast editions installed on the machine and they are practically flawless.

That certainly might be the cause of your problems.
I only have old (5+ years) to test on.

If EE fixes this for you, you just need to stick with that.

Yeah the laptop is too new. I took the same iso's and installed them on my desktop machine, which is older and uses Intel graphics. They both worked well.

I have updated the ISOs.

Host name resolving on the network was not installed or configured.
I installed windbind, added "wins" to /etc/nsswitch.conf and added a rule for CUPS to the firewall to enable printer sharing by default.

These updated ISOs seem stable enough.

Are there any objections to releasing them this weekend?

I have updated the ISOs to reflect the same directory structure as a live Debian ISO.

These directories are now symlinks to their respective directories in /usr:
/bin
/lib
/lib32
/lib64
/libx32
/sbin

The SolydXK ISOs now almost have the same directory structure as a Debian ISO. I am missing the repository directory and its handling. That is something for another time.

I am making these changes in phases. The goal is that there is no structural difference between a Debian and a SolydXK ISO. In the end that will benefit future maintainers of the ISOs. The solydxk-constructor has been adapted for these changes as well and eventually will be able to handle any Debian based ISO. At least, that is the goal.

I have tested both ISOs. You can see the test results attached.

Great. I did that on one of the test setups here a while ago and it seems to work fine.

So you're not using the usrmerge package then? I noticed it wasn't installed on the ISOs. Any particular reason why?
