Hangs after update

Post by jcoleman » 8. Jan 2021, 07:05

Thanks for the work on Slackel
I can install it just fine; problem comes when I do the update and then try to reboot.

It hangs at:

slackel.example.net login: /usr/bin/slim: error while loading shared libraries: libbrotleded.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Does "Starting up x11 session manager" about 10 times and then

/usr/bin/slim: error while loading shared libraries: libbrotlidec.so.1 : cannot open shared object file or directory
INIT: Id "x1" respawning too fast: disabled for 5 minutes

I can eventually get to command prompt but don't know what to fix.

Thank you and I hope this makes some sense.

I did an installation and an update. System boot to X without errors. brotli and slim were not updated since included in iso. I cannot reproduce the problem. It seems that something happened while upgrading. How much space have for system partition in GBytes?
How did you update your system?
sudo slapt-get -u
sudo slapt-get --upgrade
sudo slapt-get -i glibc-zoneinfo
sudo install-upgrade-kernel upgrade huge

I am currently trying in VirtualBox; allocated 50GB of space - 15GB for root, 4GB for swap, 31GB for /home; grub for bootmanager

I simply used gslapt package manager and let it run.

I had a similar problem installing on another laptop.

Thanks for getting back. If you have time, just curious where I might have gone wrong in updating.

Press ctrl-alt F1 to go to command line
Then login as user
go to init 3 (type sudo init 3)
sudo slapt-get -u
sudo slapt-get --upgrade
startx
or
sudo init 4 ( to go to slim login)

Maybe a network connection failed to download some packages ?. I have done many times the installation and update process without problem. I cannot reproduce the problem.
