Re: Problem with kernels 5.6.0-2 & 5.7.0-1 & i7-9800X

OK--I've cloned my backup / onto the main system & am now using it. The first thing after doing cleanup to make the clone work correctly was to reinstall 5.7.0-1 as there was a microcode update after this issue came about. I was hoping the microcode would "cure" my problem. Instead, it...

Re: Problem with kernels 5.6.0-2 & 5.7.0-1 & i7-9800X

I've sent an email to the address listed--no response yet. I'm leaning towards filing the report with the kernel series--the list of changes for 5.6.0-2 is several pages long, I have partly got through them as of this time. As for the nine problems in my posting, the header allowed the nine, but for...

Problem with kernels 5.6.0-2 & 5.7.0-1 & i7-9800X

Greetings everyone..... I have just run into an interesting problem after upgrading to an i7-9800X(for some reason the forum is not allowing the 9 in 9800?) from an i7-7800X. With the current 5.7.0-1 kernel & the 5.6.0-2 (current Sid), the system will not fully load GDM (no mouse or keyboard). F...

Re: Wayland & nVidia

Sorry I didn't see your reply before now---I'm on 3.26.2 & it works very well for me (Intel i7 ). No crashes---but no Wayland either---nVidia is STILL not allowing it to work.......

Re: Wayland & nVidia

I installed the experimental package on my testing system. No packages broke but the shell was unstable and would just crash at times. So I reverted the update back to gnome-shell 3.22 in unstable (on btrfs root system). However, today I see that a point release update 3.26.1 was uploaded into unst...

Re: Wayland & nVidia

OK--So after digging into this for a while, I find: Even though Gnome-Session is up to date, Gnome-Shell is at 3.22.3-3 & 3.24 is required for Wayland. Experimental is at 3.26, but the install is blocked by the update to GJS 1.50--which has a blocking bug #874693 - ES6 syntax in 1.48+ breaks pac...

Re: Wayland & nVidia

The little gear symbol next to the sign in button gives ( from memory) gnome x11 gnome gnome on x11 Yes--that's what I get + a "Cairo-Dock Gnome" that defaults to the X11 session. I checked & I have what "looks" like all the Weston/Wayland components installed. I tried in an...

Re: Wayland & nVidia

Digging a bit further I get:
update-alternatives --config x-session-manager
There is only one alternative in link group x-session-manager (providing /usr/bin/x-session-manager): /usr/bin/gnome-session
Nothing to configure.

Re: Wayland & nVidia

I can find no selection for wayland either. Perhaps we are using it now and don't know?

Wayland & nVidia

Simple & to the point. I have been digging through Google & everywhere else I can find to determine the status for Wayland & nVidia with no luck. I have an up-to-date Sid Gnome install using the current (375.82) blob. Nowhere during GDM login do I see a Gnome-Wayland option. Weston works...

Re: Convert EXT4 / & /home to BTRFS-problems....

I tried it again with about the same results---I'm going to wait a bit until BTRFS settles out a bit more--I was looking for a faster file system & I still think this will be the one--in about a year or so..

Thanks for the reply--In reverse order--That guide was the "newest" one I could find. Was thinking that I used the wrong search settings & was looking for other ideas.... I have reverted the install (wanted input based off of systems that have been converted recently--not from info fro...

Convert EXT4 / & /home to BTRFS-problems....

To start this off---I'm running Sid (I know, I know--not stable) & I wanted to play around with BTRFS.....So I found the article: https://www.debian-administration.org/article/675/How_to_convert_a_Wheezy_or_newer_system_to_btrfs & went through the steps. Long story short.. I got a single goo...
