The Bodhi 4 testing branch is now live with EFL 1.18.2 packages - hoping these will solve some of the seg fault issues people have been seeing on the 4.0.0 release.

 

You can give them a try by adding the repo component "b4testing" to he bodhi repo URL in your /etc/apt/sources.list file and then running your system updates.

 

Seem stable enough on my work laptop so far - let me know if you experience the same or differently!





A big thank you to everyone who contributes to Bodhi Linux

Tested 'vigorously'.

Unfortunately crash/freeze still occurs.

 

I added b4testing, that means I also have b4main.

There's a new update for package 'efl'.

Updated package 'efl' after that.

 

Should I take out b4main?

No - you want both branches.

 

If this doesn't solve the lock ups the next step is going to be rolling back to the 1.15 EFL version we used with Bodhi 3 to see if that fixes things for folks.

Okay, thanks for looking into this.

All we ever did do (or can do  B) ) is to test out.

 

Much appreciated. Cheers.

Jeff, I noticed that when I tried to switch desktops (vigorously) in other DE's like kde plasma or openbox, I cannot do it as though there is a 'wait' time (not too long though, just about a second or less, much less I think).

It will only switch desktop when I do it 'gently'.

But in Bodhi, the switch (if it doesn't freeze), happens 'instantaneously'.

 

I'm not sure if this observation can help.

Oh.....I use 'middle mouse scroll' to switch; not 'alt' + 'middlemouse scroll'

That difference is because I have transition animations disabled by default.
