[SOLVED] Crash start after huge first update on login stage: ArcoB-Xmonad

Post by lumumbria » Sat May 18, 2019 5:08 pm

Hi Erik and Forum. After a successful installation of ArcoB-Bspwm on a HP G5 Laptop, I follow the rutine with my first update. And it was huge : 1G!!!. After that, reboot. Grub no problems with the loading LightDM. Login, password and.... it doesn't start up, returning to the display manager again and again, reboot after reboot. I think it is because something is broken with the huge update. The packages Xmonad, Xmonad-contrib, Xmobar, etc etc, were all updated. Maybe its config itself, changed..... Please, Erik, check a fresh complete installation of the ArcoB-Bspwm with updating included on a traditional laptop and considered upgrade the distro itself: It is too outdated... Greetings, Erik.

First forget about things being outdated... that it breaks because the update is too big.

Arch Linux feels big to people, who are used to run Debian and others distro's. It feels normal to us.

I made a video about a computersystem that was 6 months old and it updated just fine.



We need to look your solution elsewhere.

What iso did you start with?

Do you have an nvidia graphical card?

Did you use the nvidia driver?

Did you do a skel command in the terminal?

Did you update with pksyua?

Go to a TTY and do the rest of the updates if needed.

CTRL + ALT + F3

Thanks, Erik. My laptop doesn't have video card, and only did the update with pksyua without doing skel and anything else. And I misspelled the of the district that I had the issue: it was with ArcoB-Xmonad. Yesterday I installed ArcoB-Bspwm and ArcoB-Awesome to other two laptops I have, and no problems. My problem was only with ArcoB-Xmonad. Last year I use a rice of Xmonad (Boylemic Github) over Antergos base, and I have the same issues everytime Xmonad updates: the xmonad.hs config file it isn't recognized, and I have to reinstall it with other login with other twm, and then work again.... But, the other ArcoB distros works perfect after my pksyua-reboot-skel-bupskel-reboot routine... Thanks, Erik, and please check and make a script to view the laptop battery module in ArcoD-B-Qtile. I am a brainlet person, but I trust in smart guys like you.

Hi

always check the articles about the desktop

https://arcolinuxd.com/category/arcolinuxd/xmonad/

In there is an article

https://arcolinuxd.com/17-can-not-log-i ... -password/

Many new users have this issue because they lack knowledge.

Long story short...

IF HASKELL updates come in, do not log out or reboot....

First

Code: Select all

xmonad --recompile
or

Super + Shift + R

You can easily fix it with going to a TTY and run the command from there. Then you can login again.

Xmonad is an application. You need to recompile it if parts of the application change.
