(Rémy Epke) #9

I expected the ‘download here’ link to take me to a page telling me the sum(s) to check.
Could you add the hash here for integrity check purposes?


(Luca Giambonini) #10

Good observation, I added the sha on the first message.
For reference this is the main link to download testing images: https://rsync.chakralinux.org/releases/testing/


(Ron Brickle) #11

I downloaded the beta today ran it in live enviroment it ran well,only thing I noticed quipzilla was flicering when scrolling web pages ans nonfree didnt work it just hangged timming out will test more


(Rémy Epke) #12

What sort of GPU are you using? A little hardware info might help here.


(Ron Brickle) #13

here you go Remy

will install when final arrives qupzilla not flickering now see what happens on nvidia install


(Rémy Epke) #17

First attempt: installation failed. Can’t remember the error message.
Rebooted to unlock the partition, shredded the partition, created a fresh ext4 and attempted a second time.
Worked, just took its time: roughly half an hour, where from last stable ISO it took 8 minutes.

Almost done personalising my account and stuff seems to just work, as usual.


(ugjka) #18

This was pre beta realease, not sure if this still counts, but I had to turn off autodefrag and space_cache and some other extras for my btrfs install. I had some data loss when did something ssd intensive. Now with those all turned off no more data loss. I think I only left compress=lzo option and also I’m doing discard via fstrim.timer instead


(tom) #19

bravo! :stuck_out_tongue:

was it possible with “umount /< mountpoint >” to unmount partition?
processes that was using the partition?
any debug infos?

if you want to make data unreadable the you need shredding a partition everything else is wasted time


(Ron Brickle) #20

trying to install nvidia on beta keep getting errors
esolving dependencies…
looking for conflicting packages…
:: nvidia-libgl and libglvnd are in conflict (libgl). Remove libglvnd? [y/N] y
error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
:: nvidia-utils: requires libglvnd
:: acpi_call: requires linux=4.12.4
:: broadcom-wl: requires linux=4.12.4
:: mesa: requires libglvnd
:: vhba-module: requires linux=4.12.4


(Luca Giambonini) #21

Interesting, you have a recent card: GeForce GTX 1060

Summarizing:
a) running from free drivers does not boot, correct?
b) running with closed drivers you can enter the desktop but then you have issues with qupzilla

except for the qupzilla flickering, did you noticed something else? same issue on different apps?
You can try to change the Compositor method in kwin and see if something change.


(Ron Brickle) #23

the flickering has stopped just the nvidia install not working

(Luca Giambonini) #24

you did something to stop it?
and, on a development ISO you can’t install packages that easly, because [testing] is not enabled.
If you want to install something on the live ISO you have to enable [testing].


(Ron Brickle) #26

I am not using live I have installed the beta

ok I enabled testing repo nvidia is now installed
thanks Luca


(tom) #28

can you remember the sequence it was failing?
perhaps with a little intervention it where usable…

sequence:

(Ron Brickle) #29

so far every thing seems ok with little bit of testing I have done nvidia working well good job crew


(Rémy Epke) #30

I was rather busy, and very tired, and I assumed error on my own part so simply tried again.

I didn’t mean shred, I meant the ‘shred’ option in KDE Partition Manager. Not the hours-taking operation, simply remove and recreate partition.


(Rémy Epke) #31

Do you always ask questions twice?


(Neofytos Kolokotronis) #32

Closing this as no major showstoppers were found and the ISO has been released. Please report any further issues on GitLab.
