kbuildsycoca hangs --- no login

High all,

now again an active post from me, obviously with a problem report.

Basic info: I'm running OpenSuse 13.1 with
  TDE 3.5.13.2-3.oss131.opt.x86-64

Because somehow I couldn't get TDE's display manager to run, the one
in use is KDE4's, kdm-4.11.9-111.1.x86_64.

Today I was hinted to quassel for an IRC client, checked the Suse
repos, found and installed it. The installer reported as the only
unresolved dependency for quassel-mono (monolithic/stand-alone
package, nothing to do with the Mono runtime) the evenly provided
quassel-base package, which I confirmed to also install.

During the installation process, kicker crashed and when it was
attempted to be respawned, the CPU load increased to 50% overall
(2core HT current i5-M). The load was partially from kicker,
partially from kbuildsycoca. After killing both, I tried to
manually run kicker again, but the same happened, just with only
one thread worth of CPU load occupied.

"init 3" (I know it's not the same with systemd, but...) didn't even
kill kbuildsycoca. After manually killing it, I switched back to
RL 5, and I got the greeter screen (background), but no entry fields
or menus or whatever --- the CPU load was again at 25%.

After uninstalling the two quassel packages, I switched to RL 3 and
back to 5 again, but there was no difference. I rebooted the box,

restoring keyboard settings after flipping kvm switch

Hi all,

I have made changes in kcontrol > peripherals > keyboard (repeat 
delay/rate).

This works great when I boot up the computer.

However, if I use a KVM switch to go to another computer and come back, 
the keyboard repeat delay and rate are messed up (probably default 
settings, not my settings.)

What can I do about this, so that my keyboard repeat settings will be 
automatically applied when a (new) keyboard is plugged in / replugged?

I can see that it is possible to set something up through udev, but I 
don't know how to script TDE changes that appear to require the GUI. How 
to script this? Or perhaps udev is not the right approach?

Thanks!
~David.

Network manager advice

Hello all

Can anyone clarify how network management works by default in Trinity? Coming 
from a Gnome background I was expecting an all-around Wired/Wireless manager 
akin to network-manager but have had no such luck.

I primarily use WiFi, and did try out KWiFiManager, but it appears to be quite 
buggy. Specifically, for my card it states that 'no networks [were] found' 
(but the same scan with iwlist returns a network list).

I would ideally like to use network-manager, and while I have heard whispers 
online about a package called network-manager-tde (it turns up in a few 
Google results); it does not appear to be available in the TDE repository.

I'm running Debian 7 (Wheezy).

New TDE site released


All,

Thanks to the efforts of the TDE web development team we proudly announce
the debut of our new website (https://www.trinitydesktop.org)!

The new site provides a cleaner and easier to use interface without
sacrificing availability of any information.  In fact, several items were
added, including a new FAQ page and application documentation.

Additionally, per popular request we have transitioned from our old
FOSWIki installation to a new MediaWiki installation, with all old content
having been migrated over the course of several months.  This should make
it much easier to add new content to the TDE knowledge base.

Let us know what you think!

Loss of Kontact Kalendar module after update

Hi,

I used apt-get dist-upgrade last night, as I usually do when package updates become available on R14. After the latest update, I started Kontact: KMail works fine, as usual. But when I clicked on Kalendar, I got a "Kontact Error: Impossible to load the calendar module; can't open the module".

I went to Configure Kalendar and got a message saying something like :
"Could not find the specified korganizer library. Diagnostic is : can't open the module. Possible reasons:
*An error occured during your latest TDE update, leaving an orphan configuration module.
*You have a third party module somewhere." (as far as I know, I don't).

I use Ubuntu Precise with TDE-R14 nightly builds on a 64-bit system. I need to get my Korganizer working again: I am fully dependent on it for all my appointments. Any suggestions? I checked this trinity discussion site several times to see if anyone else had the same problem: seems not so.

Thanks in advance,

Marco

Update:
Today I faced the problem again. Unfortunately I did not look into the .xsession-errors file before I
started to relaunch kdesktop. Nevertheless it did not crash. First action: I started kdesktop from
Konsole. It told me that kdesktop is already running but didn't come back to the prompt. Icons were not
recreated. I had to Ctrl-C for the promt. "ps ax" showed me an old version of kdesktop and a second new one
with <defunct> message. Killing the defunct one was not possible. I killed the original kdesktop program
(Desktop went black) and relaunched it and - voila - the icons reapeared on the desktop. Also the defunct
process of kdesktop was gone.

I do not find anything special in the xsession errors file. I try to investigate more accurate next time.

What is the value of a HP ProLiant ML370 G4 server?

Hi,

I have at home a HP ProLiant ML370 G4 server that I bought in a garage sale at the beginning of the summer. It is in fully working condition with Debian 7.5 on it.

Here are the specs:
Year: approx 2004
CPU: 2 physical Intel Xeon 3.20Ghz CPU with Hyper-Threading, so the OS sees 4 cores
Ram: 2gb, with many free memory slots
Network: 2 server-grade EtherNet cards
Graphic card: Ati Rage XL
HDD: 3x Ultra320 SCSI 72.8gb 10000rpm, now in hardware RAID 0
Optical drive: DVD reader/burner: I replaced the original CD drive.
Other: Tape backup drive, floppy drive, 3 USB 2.0, fully redundant fans, double power supply
Weight: approx 90-100lbs

This server is very fast, but I don't  have much use for it.

I'd like to know if it still has a money value, and how much would it still worth in production? I want to sell it, but I have no idea of what could be a fair/good price for it. Could it be useful for this project?

Thank you for the info!

PCLinuxOS non-official TDE remaster

Hi Alexandre,

Maybe not a problem !  I have downloaded your latest "PCLinuxOS 
non-official TDE remaster version 2014, October 2"  without any 
issue.  Checked MD5 and its a good download.  I'm in the process of 
installing it on my test machine right now.

However when I came to burn the iso using your previous version I have 
discovered that I can no longer burn DVD-R's !  A DVD+R burnt without 
any problem but K3B imediately ejected the -R disc.  I didn't used to 
have this problem.  The drive burns -R's Ok using "Open SuSE".

When I can get chance I will test for this problem using the latest 
version of your PCLinuxOS release.

Hi everyone!

My PCLinuxOS TDE non-official remaster version 2014, October 2 is ready to download!

I call it non-official because it doesn't come from the PCLOS team and since it contains software coming from outside of their repos, it is also not supported by them. It only has a special ''permission to exist'' from the PCLinuxOS dev team.

It is a complete system that can be used as a LiveDVD or it can be installed (from the LiveDVD).

New on this release:
-Fully updated PCLinuxOS 2014 base system
-Based on stable TDE 3.5.13.2. It will probably be the last one to come with 3.5.13.2.
-A theme switch Zenity script to let the user switch between the more modern theme I use and TDE Classic theme, to please more users.
-A SuperKaramba theme pack
-Kernel 3.16.xx

On this LiveDVD:
-Tons of TDE software and major apps like LibreOffice, Firefox and Gimp

Login info (on the LiveDVD):
Regular user:guest    Password:guest
Super user: root    Password:root

System requirement:
A x86 computer with at least 384mb of RAM.
It is a 32bit system, but it can be installed on a 64bit system too.

Hi Alexandre
I have downloaded the new Remaster.
--downloading 10 files (at high speed)
--extracting and making the ISO with Q7Z-P7Z
--verify with md5
--Burn to DVD with acetoneISO
--Install to my Compaq laptop
All went well without a problem

Remarks:
When I wanted to enable autologin, Synaptic informed me that it needed to download/install kdm.
This is of course not a problem, but would be nice if included in the Remaster

Apart from that, I have no comments.
Nice job
Thanks again 8-)
