Update of mesa from 17.1.5-1 to 17.3.1-1 and of xorg from 1.19.5-1 to 1.19.5-2 leaves me without login screen

To show all installed unit files use 'systemctl list-unit-files'.

thus I executedsystemctl --all too

LOAD   = Reflects whether the unit definition was properly loaded.
ACTIVE = The high-level unit activation state, i.e. generalization of SUB.
SUB    = The low-level unit activation state, values depend on unit type.

264 loaded units listed.
To show all installed unit files use 'systemctl list-unit-files'.

BTW, just stumbled upon this already closed thread. Could this be the reason for my problem? My system also resides on a SSD.

That sounds interesting. On the SSD where my system resides there is only 1% space left. But that is still more than 150 MByte. How much had you left?


(ericjs) #7

I don’t recall…it may have been zero. This was on the root partition. But I would clear up a a GB or so and try rebooting. The big error I was seeing with journalctl was sddm-greeter core dumping.


(tom) #8

anyway you should clean the package cache

sudo pacman -Rsn `pacman -Qdtq` && sudo paccache -rk 2 && sudo paccache -ur

what this line will do?

man pacman
paccache -h

(Knut Hildebrandt) #9

The package cache resides on a separate partition since it took up too much space. Anyway, I clean up regularly and only keep the last two versions of the installed packages.

If I got it right, this would remove a bunch of so called orphaned packages. Is this save? Im my case I would remove more than 150 packages. And I’m not sure if some of them are not needed by CCR installed programs. Here the list of the packages in question:

As much as I understand you recommended cleaning up to make space on my root partition. I’m not sure if the little space left is the reason for the failure. Nothing had changed in this respect right before or after the recent updates.

Edit: just uninstalled git which is in the list and git was gone. But I need git. Thus, at least not all of these programs can be uninstalled savely. The question is which are save to be uninstalled.


(tom) #10

there isn’t a reason to keep it because this are left over dependencies from package building or packages thy are not more in the repository

i suggest when you a package build use the -rs switch

you can install git when ever you want :slight_smile:


(ericjs) #11

If the cache isn’t on your root partition, cleaning this isn’t really relevant to you problem. But the effort of addressing 1% on the root is surely worth ruling that out as a problem. Having little free space on your system partition is generally not a good idea, and you’re going to need to address this sooner or later anyway.

What changed is you ran an update which took up a little more space. I don’t know how running out of space caused something to fail on startup but evidently some things require some free space (temp files?), and maybe the new version of something uses more than the old one.

I found the tip of running out of free space causing this on another forum where someone else was reporting a similar problem. It was only then that I thought to check and saw that I was indeed out of space. My point is just that it wasn’t just this one case on my system, it’s evidently a known thing. It may or may not be the cause for you, but I urge you not to ignore that 1%.


(Knut Hildebrandt) #12

I’m not sure if this is true for all listed packages. I think I had installed git explicitly and it was listed. And what about all the X11 stuff and kio-plugins? And now, after reinstalling it, it is marked as Explicitly installed. Can’t it be that packages are marked as not needed anymore even though they are? Well before uninstalling all these packages I’ll save an image of the system. Just in case :wink:

This remark I do not understand.

I already started cleaning up and got 500 MByte more by now. I’ll check if that helped.


(tom) #13

pardon

makepkg -rs

this switches add dependencies and removed it after the build

man makepkg

This error I did not get, but have a look what I found:

Jan 17 21:57:11 chakra-pc sddm-greeter[1909]: Unrecognized OpenGL version

Well, I did not touch OpenGL. The compositer I usually use is OpenGL 3.1. But I also tried Xrender and I switched off compositing at all. Nothing helped.

Could this be the reason and how can I fix it?

And there arose another question. I tried the fix recommended here. Unfortunately the new kernel did not work. I always ended up with an error message saying that the root partition could not be found. That even happened after updating grub. No clue what went wrong.But after adding i915 to the /etc/mkinitcpio.conf I reinstalled the kernel package and the new image is bigger than the old one was. Does that mean, that teh module has been enabled for this newly installed kernel? At least lsmod reports a module called i915.

Back again. I tried different lines of investigation and quite a few “solutions”, but my problem does prevail. After the update to

lib32/lib32-mesa           17.3.1-1
core/mesa                  17.3.1-1
core/xorg-server           1.19.5-2
core/xorg-server-common    1.19.5-2
core/xorg-server-xwayland  1.19.5-2

I can’t lock in anymore. Interesting is, when I only update either the mesa or the xorg packages and keep the old version of the others the problem does not exist. But in both cases Kmail, Kontact etc. crash as described here.

Eventually I stumbled upon these two error messages:

Jan 17 21:57:11 chakra-pc sddm-greeter[1909]: Connected to the daemon.
Jan 17 21:57:11 chakra-pc sddm-greeter[1909]: Unrecognized OpenGL version
Jan 17 21:57:11 chakra-pc sddm-greeter[1909]: Unrecognized OpenGL version

Obviously sddm stops working after running into this problem. When I look at the journal after successfully locking in it looks like this:

Jan 19 02:00:29 chakra-pc sddm-greeter[2167]: Connected to the daemon.
Jan 19 02:00:29 chakra-pc sddm[1303]: Message received from greeter: Connect

The lines before the connection attempt to the daemon are identical. When locking in fails the journal ends with the error messages, when I can lock in a bunch of more lines follow until eventually it says Session started. Thus I suppose failing to recognize the OpenGL version prevents sddm to bring up the lock-in screen and handle the authentication. The question is: why does it not recognize the OpenGL version? Any ideas, suggestions? My research until now did not bring up anything.


(Neofytos Kolokotronis) #16

It looks to me like you are affected by this issue:


(Knut Hildebrandt) #17

Tried to rule this out by adding beneath the already existing
<device> ... </device> directive following lines to my /etc/drirc

<device driver="i915">
    <application name="Default">
        <option name="stub_occlusion_query" value="true" />
        <option name="fragment_shader" value="true" />
    </application>
</device>

No seccess. But somehow I noticed, that the edited drirc file had been overwritten and set back to the original state. Why was that?

Thus I created an ~/.drirc with only the lines regarding i915. That did not work neither.


(Luca Giambonini) #18

what is the output of df -h?
a root with only 1% is not healthy at all!

what is the output of inxi -G?


(Knut Hildebrandt) #19

That’s not true anymore. Freed several hundred megabyte. Now there is almost 1 GB of free space. Most stuff I kicked out were leftovers from incompletely uninstalled packages. Look here. And I found kernel modules for long gone kernels too. Chakra seems to have a major problem with uninstalling packages correctly. Otherwise I can’t explain all these leftovers that eat up hundreds of megabytes.

Anyhow, here what you asked for:

When I ran the commands I had the old mesa and xorg packages installed.

BTW, I uninstalled all nvidia and nouveau related packages including the bumblebee and primus stuff. Furthermore I blacklisted both nvidia and nouveau drivers.


(Luca Giambonini) #20

Ok that confirms that you are affected by this problem:

you already modified the /etc/drirc file, and theoretically that should do the trick.
I fixed mesa, so that the /etc/drirc files is not overwritten during an update if modified.

I think you have to try to set the correct KWIN_COMPOSE settings. The O2ES: OpenGL ES 2 backend should work, but I’m not sure.

this wired behaviour i couldn’t notice on my notebook

[tom@frija ~]$ inxi -G

           OpenGL: renderer: Mesa DRI Intel Ivybridge Mobile version: 4.2 Mesa 17.3.3

have a look in to /etc/sddm.conf if “autologin” is enabled please.


(Knut Hildebrandt) #22

But why was that? Aren’t there usually .pacnew and .pacsave files generated? Anyhow, I installed the new versions from testing and edited the new drirc file. No success.

Where do I have to put this? Now it is not set at all.

$ env | grep KWIN_COMPOSE
$

One last remark. I accidentally installed the nvidia drivers again and ended up at a fully black screen, that didn’t even show a cursor. Could it be that all these problems are caused by the second graphics card?

Edit:

The problem still prevails and since nothing worked out yet I just stayed with the old driver. But I just accidentally updated mesa and xorg again and when krunner crashed I tried to start it from command line but failed. Interestingly I got following error messages:

krunner&
[3] 1029
[2]   Das Signal SIGALRM empfangen (Der Wecker klingelt)                          krunner
[knut@chakra-pc ~]$ libGL error: unable to load driver: i965_dri.so
libGL error: driver pointer missing
libGL error: failed to load driver: i965
libGL error: unable to load driver: i965_dri.so
libGL error: driver pointer missing

Sorry for the German, but I could not even make a full copy of all the output 'cause the screen froze again. Anyhow, does anyone have a clue, what that means? And why is it looking for a i965 driver? Shouldn’t it be i915?

Another Edit:

Well, eventually I’ve found a solution. I did a little research after stumbling upon above mentioned error message and found this thread.

According to what it recommends I was searching for the i965 module.

  1. with the old mesa and xorg packages installed

    $ pacman -Ql mesa | grep i965
    mesa /usr/lib/xorg/modules/dri/i965_dri.so
    
  2. with the new one installed

    pacman -Ql mesa | grep i965
    mesa /usr/lib/dri/i965_dri.so
    

And there is a tiny, little difference to notice. The module moved into another place. This in mind I just copied the module in the new location to the old location and the system starts as it used to. Even though this solves the problem I would not call it a solution but rather a workaround. Don’t know what went wrong, if it is the new mesa package that puts the modules into the wrong place or some other package that should be updated too, to look for the module in the new location, but I’m sure copying by hand should not be necessary. Would be nice to find a more sustainable solution for the problem.

Anyhow, in the old location there was only one entry left before copying the missing module there, a link to /usr/lib/VBoxOGL.so that does not exist anymore.
