Issues with shutdown and fans/ventilators since installing of new program

#1 Post by BamHI »

Dear Debian User Forum Community,

I have an HP EliteBook 840 G5 (region: Europe/Austria, language: German) and I installed Debain on it in 2018. Since then everything is fine.
Now today I decided to install emacs-27.2 by installing it from a .tar.gz and used the /.configure, make, sudo make install routine. That was a mistake. Since I installed that, following things are broken:

When the device tries to shutdown it writes:

Started Hostname Service.
Starting WPA supplicant...
Started WPA supplicant.
Created Slice User Slice of lightda.
Starting user manager for UID 115...
Started Session c1 of user lights.
Started user manager for UID 115.
Mounting FUSE Control File Systems...
Mounted FUSE Control System.
Started 110 Sensor Proxy Services.
reboot: Power down

Besides the very last line it never wrote that.

Since shutdown is so different, the device does not turn on or off the fans/ventilators automatically by itself and in some start ups it freezes, in some start ups it works.

I would like to know what did I break, how can I check what is actually broken and how to fix this?

The file system of my hard drive is ext4.
As a Desktop Manager I use Cinnamon.

I already ran "sudo make uninstall". The command worked, the problems are still there.
I really hope that one of you can help me.

Best regards,
BamHI

Restore from your last known good backup?

I have doubts that just compiling and installing emacs from source actually caused all these issues, but did you know that 27.1 is already in buster-backports? https://packages.debian.org/buster-backports/emacs

Cinnamon desktop does not fully support emacs in Stretch if that's what you're running. Just a guess.

It never hurts to look at systemd logs. (sudo) journalctl -b -1 You can always use grep to limit search add something like | grep ailed (which would show failed and Failed)

This article has been updated over the years.

Thank you all for your supportive answers! Till now I still was not able to solve the problem.

First I want to address stevepussers response. Thank you for directing me to a package solution of the current emacs version! Though even if I try to install emacs-nox, it still installs version 24 and not 27.
Also yes, I may have run "apt update" and "apt upgrade" before trying to install emacs. Maybe the updates changed something vital before that.

Thanks to trinidad by pointing the incompatibilities out! That may explain things.

Thank you, paxmark1, to pointing me to the systemd logs. I guess they are revealing (?):

I doubt that installing Emacs from source can cause an issue like yours, there are some known issues that users may encounter [1] but these are all Emacs-related, nothing system-related. Indeed you must have upgraded something even if unintentionally.

Anyway some applications has an uninstall script included in the tarball, Emacs should do that too.
I've sent an email to Richard Stallman.
To: rms@gnu.org

Someone on Debian forums encountered a system issue after compiling Emacs 27.2 from source, he suspects that his issue MAYBE related to Emacs, or maybe it's not, it doesn't really matter, what matters is that his report brought to my attention that Emacs tarball doesn't include an uninstall script.

I think the person responsible for this part of Emacs is Paul Eggert, could you forward this message to him? Let him know we need an uninstall script for user convenience.
I will write here when/if he respond

A bug was opened and a discussion was made. Take a look.
https://debbugs.gnu.org/cgi/bugreport.cgi?bug=49878

DISCLAIMER: I know the bug report wasn't properly written, that's because when I sent my message to bug-gnu-emacs (at) gnu.org I thought there was another person at the other end, I didn't know it was set to automatically submit a bug report taken from my message's body and title.
