Re: LXDE packets

It adding on ~/.xinit.rc this lines:

## test for an existing bus daemon, just to be safe
if which dbus-launch >/dev/null && test -z "$DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS"; then
eval "$(dbus-launch --sh-syntax --exit-with-session)"
fi

May be it's not useful, but i told, sometimes findes, that d-bus
daemon for current user not start :( That's sounding imposible, but
i'm seen it.

IMHO, you should fix that installation, or use xinitrc_dbus as a local
hack for your installations, but it shouldn't be used by default for
all the mdv LXDE users out there.

(Again) a dbus session is launched correctly via the mdv xinitrc,
nothing else is needed. And /usr/bin/startlxde does check for dbus and
launch it if it's not initialised. xinitrc_dbus isn't useful here
AFAICS.

Just my 0.1 EURO worth.

Under 2010.1 I had intermittent problems with dbus.  It did not 
happen often, and I was never able to find even a clue as to what 
the problem was, but one did exist.

Searching alt.os.linux.mandriva for dbus and maybe d-bus over the 
past year should turn up a fair number of posts attesting to such 
problems.

If it is critical that dbus is running, a check to make sure is 
in order.

Cheers!

I've wrote the same thing three separate times, I don't think a fourth
time will do any good...  :)

It's not ultimately my decision, I am not the distro manager nor LXDE
maintainer, so I can just go back to the audience stands and see how
this unfolds.

The reality is : we never enable any of those technology and never
provide configuration.
Basically we're naked...

There was political opposition from management at that time.

Too bad we never jumped in the selinux wagoon.

Amarok fails to start since recent updates

[rfox <at> foxbase cooker]$ amarok
KGlobal::locale::Warning your global KLocale is being recreated with a
valid main component instead of a fake component, this usually means you
tried to call i18n related functions before your main component was
created. You should not do that since it most likely will not work 
amarok(16283)/kdecore (KSycoca) KSycocaPrivate::openDatabase: Trying to
open ksycoca from "/var/tmp/kdecache-rfox/ksycoca4"
amarok(16283) Phonon::KdePlatformPlugin::createBackend: using backend:
"GStreamer"
unnamed app(16282): Communication problem with  "amarok" , it probably
crashed. 
Error message was:  "org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown" : " "The
name org.kde.amarok was not provided by any .service files" " 

Happy to create a bug report if someone would confirm it for me . .

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL!

Wrong.

Of course the network install make use of both */release and */updates!
For years.

This is a known problem that was previously reported to this list here:

Ahmad refered us to this upstream bug:
