    Yes, I am aware we are pre-alpha and letting those 4 files upgrade made it go back like it was slooooooooooooooow after the panels appear.

    Is everyone getting this error when a kernel gets installed as I just did on the 3.12.0-5-generic kernel:
    Code:
    Setting up linux-image-extra-3.12.0-5-generic (3.12.0-5.13) ...
    Running depmod.
    update-initramfs: deferring update (hook will be called later)
    initrd.img(/boot/initrd.img-3.12.0-5-generic
    ) points to /boot/initrd.img-3.12.0-5-generic
     (/boot/initrd.img-3.12.0-5-generic) -- doing nothing at /var/lib/dpkg/info/linux-image-extra-3.12.0-5-generic.postinst line 491.
    vmlinuz(/boot/vmlinuz-3.12.0-5-generic
    ) points to /boot/vmlinuz-3.12.0-5-generic
     (/boot/vmlinuz-3.12.0-5-generic) -- doing nothing at /var/lib/dpkg/info/linux-image-extra-3.12.0-5-generic.postinst line 491.
    I don't see the CPU being used excessively like before though.

    It's a good thing I have VinDSL's conky so I can see what is happening in real time.



    I wonder what mc4man's take is on this. He must have performed the steps he mentioned in post #149.

    Re: glib bug report

    I looked for a current bug the other other day, didn't find so filed here & for the moment may be applicable -
    https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...l/+bug/1256961

    (- I never pin anything, if I don't want something upgraded then I simply don't upgrade it. This can be done easily in synaptic or thru sudo apt-get install --only-upgrade packagename(s) though both are not without potential pitfalls

    Thanks and I'll do that with the upgrading but it seems a bit tedious when many files need updated. I added my name to the bug. Are you all getting the error I mentioned?
    doing nothing at /var/lib/dpkg/info/linux-image-extra-3.12.0-5-generic.postinst line 491.

    But I can see doing it with Synaptic pretty easily.

    Thanks for the replies.

    I suspect at this point we just need to wait for the various teams to get into sync.

    I don't believe that's an error, while I can't profess to really understand I take "doing nothing" as a message that nothing needs to be done in 'whatever' regard (already properly linked?

    So if interested take a look at /var/lib/dpkg/info/linux-image-extra-3.12.0-5-generic.postinst line 491 & see. (as said I don't really understand it, just looking at logically

    Code:
    489    }
    490    else {                  # already have proper link
    491      warn "$kimage($vmlinuz_target) points to $target ($real_target) -- doing nothing";
    492      $force_move = 0;
    493     }
    494     return $force_move;

    Looks like the libglib2.0-0 is in the upgrade.

    Here goes..

    Re: Trusty GNOME Classic & Flashback sessions

    Ok .. got the latest kernel update and it knocked out my 'Ring Switcher' function from ccsm and set it to 'Shift Switcher'. Also reset number of desktops to 1. Now cannot get ring switcher to work on Trusty gnome-flashback (with compiz).

    Good deal. I went ahead and downgraded the packages, rebooted and it's back to being very fast. Man it was as slow as my windows 7 booting up. Can't have none of that.
    But, this time as suggested I will not lock the packages. I will just selectively upgrade all but those 4 packages.

    So, I take it you're getting the same thing and if you say so I will not worry about it. Looking at the red on the else it does look like it's already linked.
    Thanks for showing that.

    Man are we having fun or what? Thanks to all of you for helping me learn this stuff. I love learning new things.

    So, I guess when the new fixed libglib comes down the pipe it will only install the latest version. Would that be correct? What will become of the bad packages when that happens?

    I always for the past three or four versions have used Application Switcher in Flashback and have never had a problem. I have had the same problems you mention with any of the other ones so I stick with this one in the top left of CCSM Window Management.
    It's not perfect and it appears confusing but it works every time.

    I see what you mean about the potential pitfalls. I had 51 updates this morning and used the sudo apt-get install --only-upgrade command to install just 47 of them. That went fine.
    I just checked for updates again and it installed gir1.2-gmenu-3.0 gnome-menus gnome-session gnome-session-bin gnome-session-common libaudit-common libaudit1 libgnome-menu-3-0 libplymouth2 libselinux1 libssl1.0.0 openssl plymouth plymouth-label plymouth-theme-ubuntu-logo plymouth-theme-ubuntu-text python3-software-properties rsyslog software-properties-common software-properties-gtk xserver-common xserver-xephyr xserver-xorg-core.

    But the recommends were rsyslog-mysql rsyslog-pgsql rsyslog-doc rsyslog-gnutls rsyslog-gssapi rsyslog-relp xfonts-100dpi xfonts-75dpi
    And when I attempted to install those here's what I got:

    Code:
    The following extra packages will be installed:
      dbconfig-common libdbd-mysql-perl libdbi-perl libmysqlclient18 libpq5 librelp0 libterm-readkey-perl mysql-client mysql-client-5.5 mysql-client-core-5.5 mysql-common postgresql-client postgresql-client-9.3
      postgresql-client-common
    Suggested packages:
      libmldbm-perl libnet-daemon-perl libplrpc-perl libsql-statement-perl postgresql-9.3 postgresql-doc-9.3 gnutls-bin krb5-user mysql-server postgresql
    The following NEW packages will be installed:
      dbconfig-common libdbd-mysql-perl libdbi-perl libmysqlclient18 libpq5 librelp0 libterm-readkey-perl mysql-client mysql-client-5.5 mysql-client-core-5.5 mysql-common postgresql-client postgresql-client-9.3
      postgresql-client-common rsyslog-doc rsyslog-gnutls rsyslog-gssapi rsyslog-mysql rsyslog-pgsql rsyslog-relp xfonts-100dpi xfonts-75dpi
    0 upgraded, 22 newly installed, 0 to remove and 4 not upgraded.
    Need to get 13.8 MB of archives.
    After this operation, 62.3 MB of additional disk space will be used.
    Do you want to continue? [Y/n]
    I aborted that operation not knowing what the heck I was doing

    And what about the libglib files when the good ones come down the pipe?
