First breakage in UbuRR... YaY! :D

Installed these new packages via Synaptic (raring/main) @ 2:20AM local time.


Installed the following packages:
kmod (9-2ubuntu1)
libkmod2 (9-2ubuntu1)


Immediately afterward, I "tried" to install nVidia 304.60 (noobslab) but KMOD could not find some non-existant file.


WARNING: could not open /tmp/mkinitramfs blah, blah, blah, does not exist


Boom, Fail, Loser, Goodbye! No nVidia drivers.

I just "tried" to remove kmod & libkmod2, but Synaptic wants to remove Unity et al. along with them. I'll pass...

Cannot modify anything kernel related, now -- anything that requires generating an initramfs.

First big time breakage in a while. UbuRR is gonna be fun! :guitar:

Doing a little forensics... kmod (9-2ubuntu1) & libkmod2 (9-2ubuntu1) were superseded almost immediately.

Must have flown in, under the wire, when I updated/upgraded from CLI, today...

Note to devs: KMOD still has issues! Might want to move it back into "-proposed". :D

But, wait... what's this "module-init-tools"?

Heh! When I "tried" removing "module-init-tools", guess what?!?!? It wanted to remove "kmod", but nothing else.



Commit Log for Mon Oct 29 12:49:29 2012

Downgraded the following packages:
module-init-tools

Removed the following packages:
kmod


Score, Winner, Pinned, Yes! :KS

I could care less about the KMOD library. Let sleeping dogs lie, you know?

Just installed nVidia 304.51 (edgers) and it built just fine.

nVidia 304.60 (noobslab) evidently hasn't been patched for Linux 3.6.3.

Anyway, looks like I cheated death, yet again. Let's see if it survives a cold-boot...

EDIT

Number 5 Is Alive!

Bring on the breakage...

I downloaded all those recent file upgrades/installs and there is nothing remarkable on THIS machine. However, I am running the 3.7.xxRC2 kernel and 310.14 nVidia-current.

This is also happening on Linux 3.5.0.17.

I just booted and trie3d to update. It failed due to a missing package header. I fixed that and upgraded in the terminal and got this:


update-initramfs: Generating /boot/initrd.img-3.5.0-17-generic
cp: cannot stat `/lib/modprobe.d/*': No such file or directory
E: /usr/share/initramfs-tools/hooks/kmod failed with return 1.
update-initramfs: failed for /boot/initrd.img-3.5.0-17-generic with 1.
dpkg: error processing initramfs-tools (--unpack):
subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 1
Errors were encountered while processing:
initramfs-tools
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

I opened synaptic and found that kmod and module-init-tools were tagged to be upgraded. Ran the upgrade and they are now at 9-2ubuntu2.

Safe to reboot? I will find out tomorrow.

New module-init-tools (9-2ubuntu2) depends on two new packages:
- kmod
- libkmod2

The old module-init-tools (3.1.6-1ubuntu6) seems to have been split now.

Also note this:


kmod (9-2ubuntu2) raring; urgency=low
* Don't copy /lib/modprobe.d/* in our version of the kmod
initramfs hook; we currently don't ship anything there.

New kmod came along. I bit the bullet.

echo "module-init-tools install"|dpkg --set-selections
unlocked module-init-tools. I crossed my fingers and did update-initramfs. Same warning appeared. I rebooted and I'm writing from new kernel images. So, that warning is not announcing obstruction...
Conclusion: there is a problem still in kmod but it is not fatal, at least I dodged a bullet this time...

Exactly! :D

KMOD is an upstream project. They've been working on it for quite a while.

The problem is, someone at Canonical accepted it (before it was fully cooked) and moved it from proposed into main.

"proposed" is now used to:
- avoid the "partial" updates when all the dependencies are not rebuilt/ready
- test the new versions on the devs side before sending them in the "wild"

The target is to lowering the useless report bugs as much as possible. But if you enable "proposed" then you get the previous ubuntu experience with the bleeding edge packages.

If you going the GS route in Ubuntu then the 3 ppa's will be your only 'easy' path
Atm no sense using 3.7+ gtk in a unity session, already breaks elements of light-themes
(the latest glib breaks some unity indicators but that will be addressed I believe

Bwahahaha! Yeah, I know...

Personally, I prefer to use PCManFM which, BTW, is still working just fine. ;)

Anyway, Nautilus 3.4.2 is terminally broken, AFAIK.

Same here . Nautilus has become some sort of carbon copy ghost of itself. Oddly enough I can have them both running together.

Yep, you can run Nautilus & PCManFM side-by-side, both at the same time -- one with user privileges, the other in root auth -- and any other combination you can imagine. They are very happy to coexist on the same desktop.

The funny thing is, when Nautilus 3.4.2 was working, I often forgot which FM I was running. They both worked equally well. LoL! :D

I used Nautilus 3.7.1 for a few hours, last night. It worked okay, but you definitely have to go about things a different way -- using cut n' paste, instead of 'move" (which is a PITA now). If 'they' would add "move to the other tab" instead of opening another instance of the browser, it would help, but I'm not holding my breath.

I'm going to sorely miss the split pane mode, especially when I do file transfers between my local machine in Arizona, and remote server in Georgia.

Without the split pane(s), I really have no use for Nautilus, but I'll let it languish in the background, like a "ghost" walking the hallways of my PC. ;)

If you want it it's in the staging ppa (needs glib/gtk from the testing ppa.

Well lucky me, I'm not using Unity ;)
and thanks for the info, Rico Tzschichholz is doing great, I hope it will land in the Gnome3 ppa or better yet in main (maybe I'm a bit too optimistic ? :rolleyes:)
