Things have more or less been "OK" in Siduction since my last post, but now a couple of problems have cropped up in "Bulls eye" . . . one doesn't seem to be problematic beyond taking time, but this morning I tried to log into Siduction and the GUI failed to load . . . it stops at the TTY prompt.

I logged into the tty and I ran "apt update && apt upgrade" and it installed a few packages, 27? and a new kernel; I rebooted and selected Siduction from Grub and we scrolled through the dmesg, which first shows an error of "mdadm: no arrays found in config or ?? automatically??" which then it announces that it is "tired" of running that error and drops into the regular dmesg list.

A couple weeks ago I ran some code that I found in a Debian forum showing how to repair this "mdadm" error, but it didn't seem to fix it.  Today on the second boot attempt for Siduction it showed two "Failed" errors for "Failed to start Load Kernel Modules" and then a bit down it showed another one, "Failed to start Nvidia Persistent xxxxx" . . . and then a bit later it showed a "Dependency" error . . . of course all of these things are moving fast up until it loads the log in prompt for the tty.

The system has the Nvidia repos and in running the update/upgrade no errors showed up . . . any thoughts or prayers on this one?? It does seema bit "labor intensive" to keep Siduction in tidy order; I have a rolling Gecko install that tells me the "gpg keys are very wrong" for the install as I believe I didn't update it for a month a few weeks back, but it still boots up and gets me into a GUI . . . .  Siduction seems to be "blocking" me from doing that, can't log into the GUI environment, only command line.


e.e.p.PS: 3 "return" key strokes were provided between each paragraph, for those who care about spacing & formatting of posts, etc.

Thanks for the fast reply, is that going to give me some data to look at?  Or is that going to repair something?  Because, my problem is that I am now in Lu Eoan for my GUI, but if I reboot into Siduction and run those commands, if it gives me a long list of data I won't be able to "copy/paste" it out of the console . . . I would have to take a picture, or hand copy it, etc.  If it will be only a few lines then no problem to hand copy and write it out.

The system has the Nvidia repos ...

What does this mean, exactly?
Asus ROG STRIX X299-E, Core i7-7740X, Nvidia GTX-1060, dual monitors, SSD 860 EVO, 2@WD1003FZEX in BTRFS

If your not using software raid you can purge

Code: [Select]
apt purge mdadm
Please don't use

Code: [Select]
apt update && apt upgrade in siduction or debian sid (siduction is based on debian sid)

Instead use

Code: [Select]
apt update; apt full-upgrade (or dist-upgrade)
Please post the outputs of what towo asked


Nvidia repos  ?????
I either give too many fucks or no fucks at all, it's like I cannot find a middle ground for a moderate fuck distribution, it's like what the fuck

Thanks for the replies, I'll run those commands in a few minutes and post back when I get back into a GUI.  Thanks for the data on the "&&" and "upgrade" . . . I usually do run "full-upgrade" as per your advice here previously, but I "spaced" it when I found the tty, rather than the Plasma GUI . . . and defaulted to my ubuntu based training . . . .

OK, thanks for the corrected commands, the ones I ran gave me a bunch of "man" type pages, but I ran it several ways and it showed essentially what you have posted here, except my "version" numbers are "418.74 -1" . . . but it was about "34" line items showing "nvidia" . . . in variation.  I'll run the "inxi -r" line in a bit, but have to get to some other stuff first . . . having to reboot to get back and forth etc.  I'll post back with it when I get there.

@Piper:
OK, when I ran "inxi -r" it did show that the "Nvidia" line that was there earlier today has been removed??  So, instead of what was 4 lines in apt update, there are only three, the one "debian" "unstable non-free" and two "siduction" "extra In Release" and a "fixes, In Release" . . . so it looks like the Nvidia item has to be added back in??  Not sure why that data would be removed from apt as I only added it maybe a month ago or less?

I might have done that by the console before, but I don't have that data right in front of me right now . . . can u hep me? : - 0

There is no "Nvidia" repo for Debian systems, including siduction.

This line should be in your /etc/apt/sources.list.d/siduction.list file:

Code: [Select]
deb http://packages.siduction.org/extra  experimental main contrib non-free
Asus ROG STRIX X299-E, Core i7-7740X, Nvidia GTX-1060, dual monitors, SSD 860 EVO, 2@WD1003FZEX in BTRFS

OK, well I took a photo of the apt items, and no, there is no "experimental" line in the sources.list.  So, in a thread here in the last month I believe you guys gave me some instruction on adding whatever I would need to get "Nvidia" added into the system to help with "reviving from suspend" . . . .  And, I did see something like "Nvidia" in the apt update data the first time I ran "apt update/upgrade" . . . but now seemingly "nvidia" has been "lost" or "removed" and the system can't make a decision on how to get the GUI loaded up???

Is the key point to first be adding this "experimental" element into the sources.list, and that will allow nvidia to be added via what?? the "ppa"??? list???
eep

Lets do this, lets edit

Code: [Select]
/etc/apt/sources.list.d/debian.list
or

Code: [Select]
nano /etc/apt/sources.list.d/debian.list
Your going to add these to sources to the debian.list

Code: [Select]
deb http://deb.debian.org/debian/ experimental main contrib non-free
deb http://packages.siduction.org/extra  experimental main contrib non-free

Take out whatever nvidia sources you added either with a # or remove

After that do

Code: [Select]
apt update
Now lets get rid of whatever nvidia you have and start fresh

Code: [Select]
apt purge nvidia.
Make sure you  **include**  the period, this will delete all of nvidia blob

Once thats done, lets install nvidia from debian

Code: [Select]
apt update; apt install nvidia-driver nvidia-driver-libs nvidia-settings nvidia-smi nvidia-kernel-dkms -t experimental

Reboot your computer for changes to apply

Edit:

changed to experimental from
deb http://deb.debian.org/debian/ unstable main contrib non-free

I either give too many fucks or no fucks at all, it's like I cannot find a middle ground for a moderate fuck distribution, it's like what the fuck

OK, thanks for that, I read through my other post and it looks like I used synaptic to install the nvidia driver before, and somebody posted back, "Don't use synaptic" but didn't give me any coaching on how to do it the right way.  I'll give it a shot via tty in a minute.
[edit:] A few minutes later . . . I don't know how this happened, but I'm back in the GUI . . . .  : - )))))  So it seemed like running those commands worked out, as it got to the end of the "ko" section of adding the nvidia drivers it just left the tty and went to the log in window . . . so thanks kindly for that.  Reading through the other thread I couldn't figure out if I needed to name the nvidia driver version and/or other things needed to put into the list to install.


in that section of the /etc/sources.list.d/ that I nano'd the debian "src" lines were hashtagged out, and also there was a "#" in front of the "deb http://deb.debian.org/debian/ experimental main contrib non-free"  line as well.   Wasn't sure, but I just left those lines as they were.

The first line you suggested adding the "//deb.debian.org/debian/ unstable main contrib non-free" . . . was already there, un hashtagged.

Thanks for the assist.  Looks like there were a few other packages to add that showed up in update/upgrade from this morning . . . .
