In an effort to try and pin down the cause of the occasional segfaults that are happening for folks with Bodhi 4.0.0 I have put older EFL versions that were always stable under Bodhi 3.x in the Bodhi 4 testing branch for users to try.

 

After adding the b4testing branch to your repos - perform your system updates and then run the commands:

sudo apt-get install elementary evas-generic-loaders emotion-generic-players
mv ~/.elementary ~/elementaryold

And then restart Moksha.

Note that this roll back will cause some instability issues with the latest ephoto version we have - but everything else seems fine at a glance here on my personal systems. In fact - a couple of the bugs epad has under the latest EFL version aren't there any more and the few theme issues we still haven't sorted with the latest EFL version gone in this roll back as well.





A big thank you to everyone who contributes to Bodhi Linux

Done above (positive all done including renaming .elementary directory) and after restart, login screen appears; tried to login but keeps getting back to login screen.

Tried login as root, but message states "incorrect password" (I'm sure password is correct).

 

Sorry, Jeff. Didn't work.

If you are unable to log in that doesn't mean this doesn't fix the segfault issue - it means your system didn't upgrade properly. Can you please post the output of:

dpkg -l efl
dpkg -l elementary

Thanks!

 

EDIT: Also - when you upgraded you ran sudo apt-get dist-upgrade right? Just updated a second system here to the efl 1.15 packages and it went over fine. Moksha restarts and logs in without a hitch.

hmm , Moksha restart results in a logout here too. Login is impossible.

 

dpkg shows 

ii   efl 201611151.15.1         amd64
rc   elementary 201607191.15.1  amd64

Elementary not installed? Did you give the instructions fully? Should I reinstall elementary or move back ~/.elementary?

Elementary should be installed from a successful upgrade. This EFL package no longer provides it, but other things depend on it. Are you all using 32 or 64bit systems (both my test systems were 64bit)? Does manually installing the package elementary allow you to log in?

 

Did the system upgrade want to remove any packages? Trying to figure out what went wrong for you folks.

Yes.

If it matters, my kernel is

pop@pop:~$ uname -r
4.4.0-47-generic

And I booted this from an remastered isofile - my usual usage of Bodhi - and that is why I can repeat this experiment despite unable to login previously.

 

Output of dpkg -l efl and elementary looks 'dicey'. What can I do about this?

Thanks.

Huh - for some reason elementary didn't install automatically in the upgrade process. Please manually install it (and I've added that to the top post) and then logging in should work as expect.

Horray! Login works this time.

Will restart and revert with further information (if pager thingy jams up or not).

 

Thanks!

After 'vigorous' desktop paging, apps freeze too. (in this case firefox), can close firefox at panel and then restart firefox.

But seems 'better' than previous 'settings'.

 

If there's more you like me to test, let me know.

My booting isofile will not really destroy any 'settings'.

And thanks.

 

Cheers.

So the desktop is locking up or just your applications? Before the entire desktop was freezing right?

Just the applications. Desktop don't freeze.

But also note before the changes (meaning before putting in b4testing - the original) for me, it's also the apps freezing only (I still have the isofile to test - I made isofiles with diff names or versions) and I am actually using this original iso now to test - apps freeze only.

 

I can test (if you like) from this original any experiment you like to try.

 

Cheers.

 

[edit] - I want to stress that aps freeze only with 'vigorous' desktop paging.

If I am more 'careful', apps won't freeze.

Also granted, most times 'normal' use will not involve 'vigorous' desktop paging.

Thought I want to be clear about this.

So there is no difference with the older EFL version then?

Yes. It appears so (for me).

But I note in some posts somewhere where a user has desktop freezing.

 

It's late here, Jeff. Logging off soon.

But will be happy to test further; as I mentioned, booting up isofiles cannot really destroy anything.

But I have a 'normal installed Bodhi' in a partition too.
