#4 Re: Openbox » Crash after login » 2016-12-01 08:34:28

You'll need to install the kernel headers pkg (# pacman -S linux-headers)

The modules support multiple kernels - thats why the headers pkg is not a hard dependency.

The following command should install the headers and then re-install, then build, the modules via dkms

pacman -S linux-headers virtualbox-guest-dkms

#5 Re: Openbox » Crash after login » 2016-11-30 15:32:26

I would guess that you don't have virtualbox-guest-dkms installed.  If you're trying and failing to load the virtualbox modules I would assume that means they're not getting rebuilt when a new kernel comes out.

Just a guess

Nice - much better.  Thanks!

rearden - I'm not sure if mrgreen is doing some magic behind the scenes but it's probably being automatically logged in via /etc/inittab

Edit that file (as root) and look for the TERMINALS section.  One entry will be modified (with the original hashed out) - you'll need to flip that (so the line with the username gets hashed out and the original line that matches the others is restored)
Once you've edited (and if you're unsure, make a copy) reboot.  The bash profile entries might already be there depending on how you set the account up.  It should at least stop the automatic login.

Technically, you don't need to reboot, you could just drop to runlevel2 and then back up to runlevel3 but you probably want to test it properly.

Word of warning - messing up inittab can render the O/S unusable without an alternate way to boot up and mount the hard drive... nothing that can't be recovered but bear it in mind.

#8 Re: Openbox » [SOLVED] Require login before X session » 2016-11-25 18:11:44

Easiest way, IMO, is to remove any kind of login manager so you're presented with a regular text based login when booting up.  Then add the following to your .bashrc

[[ -z $DISPLAY && $XDG_VTNR -eq 1 ]] && exec startx

You may have to adjust the VTNR number if OpenRC doesn't default to tty1 (but I think it does)

Obviously, X will only work with your login (but you could add it to /etc/profile.d/ and I don't see why it wouldn't work for all)

In reading the bug report, it seems that it's a problem with the order in which pacman installs the pkgs.... so it upgrades readline (which breaks lvm) then upgrades the kernel and finally upgrades lvm but the kernel hooks in mkinicpio were built against the older lvm.

I think all Arch installations that use lvm would be affected regardless of init system.

If you just want to see the number of new you can change line 25 to be

print(total - seen, 'new')

New output is

2 new

For what it's worth, I'd say it's worth changing lines 16 and 28 too

Line 16

print('?? new')

Might be better as

print('failed to login')

Line 28 might be better as

print('failed to get new count')

#42 Re: Installation » Issues Installing ArchBang from USB » 2016-04-20 09:13:24

The 512MB FAT32 partition makes me think you have a UEFI/GPT setup.   If so (and /dev/sda1 is / ) you could possibly try something like this (but there are assumptions so don't take it as a precise guide)

boot off a live image
live$ sudo bash
# mount /dev/sda1 /mnt
# mount /dev/sda3 /mnt/boot
# arch-chroot /mnt /bin/bash

At this point you'll be 'in' your installation and you should be seeing the usual /usr, /var /etc structure and you can pick up the Arch install guide at … oot_loader

When done, exit out from the chroot with 'exit' and reboot

I don't have UEFI/GPT so it's a little bit of guesswork on my part.  Hopefully someone else can offer a more conclusive solution

That's not an issue :-)  It's to be expected that you cannot mount the whole disk and only the individual partitions.

I agree with Mr Green - it sounds like a bootloader didn't get installed for whatever reason or possibly that you said to install to a partition and didn't set the partition as bootable in fdisk

Could so it as a script but I think the person wanting to compile from AUR probably shouldn't have it obfuscated.  One compromise which may be overkill would be to do something like this:

echo 'Creating a temporary directory in /tmp using "cd $(mktemp -d)"'
cd $(mktemp -d)
sleep 3
echo 'Installing any missing packages needed for compilation using 'pacman -S --needed base-devel git --noconfirm'"
pacman -S --needed base-devel git --noconfirm

$ cd
$ sudo pacman -S --needed base-devel git
$ git clone
$ cd packer
$ makepkg -is

The steps mean:
1) Go to your home directory
2) Install any missing pkgs that might be required in order to compile apps from AUR
3) Clone the packer code
4) Change to the newly created packer directory
5) Create a packer pkg, install any dependencies (from the repo) and install the packer pkg


$ cd 
$ rm -rf ./packer.git

6) back to your home dir
7) remove the source

Be aware that AUR packages will not be placed in /var/cache/pacman/pkg so you will be removing the actual "pkg" file by running step 7 (but this does not mean uninstalling it)

Could you try killing tint2, then starting from the command line, then launching FF.  When it crashes hopefully something would be written to the terminal

olicenseserver.lin: loadlocale.c:131: _nl_intern_locale_data: Assertion `cnt < (sizeof (_nl_value_type_LC_COLLATE) / sizeof (_nl_value_type_LC_COLLATE[0]))' failed.
++ pidof olicenseserver.lin

"pidof <whatever>" should be returning the PID but since nothing comes back I'm assuming the spckssq86 binary is the thing complaining about the missing argument.  The locale/glibc thing is the root cause though and it's not something you can easily fix on Arch (and it would defeat the object of Arch to get it running)

TBH though, some of the output still doesn't make total sense to me

try running it like this:
sudo sh -x start

It will still error out but it might give more a hint about what it's expecting.

What if you just run "sudo /etc/init.d/ start"

You're doing the installation part manually by creating the /etc/init.d and creating the service file so the 'install' script shouldn't have to be run.  However, you're also trying to launch a binary that might have requirements not met.

This it going to make things a little more complicated since you need to set environmental variables and the appropriate way is to use /etc/sysconfig/*

It's probably easier to adjust your systemd service file to be something like this

$ cat /etc/systemd/system/etcinitd.service 
Description=startup scripts



Then create a script called /etc/init.d/main.script

$ cat /etc/init.d/main.script 

for script in /etc/init.d/*.sh
  $script start
exit 0

And finally put the OLicenseServer in /etc/init.d but make sure it has a .sh suffix
Basically, anything you put in /etc/init.d/*sh will get run at boot, not just this one

can you post the contents of OLicenseServer ?  The systemd unit replaces the init.d script so you have to tell it to do what the init.d script does

It's not the usual type of startup script (with a case statement for stop|start|restart and so on) but I'd go with something like this:

1) Create a file called /etc/systemd/system/OLicenseServer (the actual name is your choice)

2) The file should, at it's most simple, look like this

Description=OLicenseServer control

ExecStart=/path/to/OLicenseServer start
#ExecStop=/path/to/OLicenseServer stop # if this is implemented in the script


3) # systemctl enable OLicenseServer

There are many more options but this should get you started
