Warning: package debianutils 5.0.1.1 breaks X /
« on: 2021/08/18, 09:10:06 »
No upgrades please until this is fixed: https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=992396
If you are trapped already, reverting to version 5.0-1 gets you back into X.

Bitte keine Upgrades bis der Fehler https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=992396 bereinigt ist.
Wenn ihr das Problem bereits habt, hilft ein Downgrade auf Version  5.0-1

I think I am going to need some help recovering from this.

Thanks

1. enable testing in your sources
2. apt update
3. apt install debianutils/testing

How to I get to tty from boot, It looks like adding 3 to linux line in grub is the right option but I would like some guidance

As the problem breaks only xsessions, I would press <CTRL><ALT><F1> to get to a normal console without X and login as root.
Wenn Windows die Lösung ist...
kann ich dann bitte das Problem zurück haben?

When GRUB appears, type 'e',  add a '3'  to the kernel boot line and commence boot with ’x’.

I am a bit confused about this version:

Quote
# apt policy debianutils
debianutils:
  Installiert:           4.11.2
  Installationskandidat: 5.0.1-1

Thanks for the warning, though.
Ok, you can't code, but you still might be able to write a bug report for Debian's sake

Sure.

What I wanted to say is: There is no 5.0.1 to go back to:
Quote
# apt install debianutils=5.0.1 -s
Paketlisten werden gelesen… Fertig
Abhängigkeitsbaum wird aufgebaut… Fertig
Statusinformationen werden eingelesen… Fertig
E: Version »5.0.1« für »debianutils« konnte nicht gefunden werden.

# apt install debianutils=5.0.1-1 -s
Paketlisten werden gelesen… Fertig
Abhängigkeitsbaum wird aufgebaut… Fertig
Statusinformationen werden eingelesen… Fertig
Die folgenden Pakete werden aktualisiert (Upgrade):
  debianutils

Inst debianutils [4.11.2] (5.0.1-1 Debian:unstable [amd64])
Conf debianutils (5.0.1-1 Debian:unstable [amd64])

# apt install debianutils=4.11.2 -s
Paketlisten werden gelesen… Fertig
Abhängigkeitsbaum wird aufgebaut… Fertig

debianutils ist schon die neueste Version (4.11.2).
0 aktualisiert, 0 neu installiert, 0 zu entfernen und 44 nicht aktualisiert.

Doesent matter if you go back to  debianutils/testing.

5.0-1 would already be the broken one according to changelog. 4.11.2 is the one working

Right, sorry for the confusion. I was in a hurry and just checked apt changelog for the latest version before the broken one.

Interestingly, it works here with the "old" Xorg using tempfile, without any intervention (siduction with Gnome/Xorg):
xorg:
  Installiert:           1:7.7+22
  Installationskandidat: 1:7.7+22
  Versionstabelle:
 *** 1:7.7+22 500
        500 http://deb.debian.org/debian unstable/main amd64 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
debianutils:
  Installiert:           5.0.1-1
  Installationskandidat: 5.0.1-1
  Versionstabelle:
 *** 5.0.1-1 500
        500 http://deb.debian.org/debian unstable/main amd64 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

When i understand Xsession right (and I am pretty bad in shell scripts...) then it tries to create an errorfile in $HOME first and if not possible uses (missing) tempfile command?
