Default Upgrade Issues


Was wondering wether someone could help with this ? Kubuntu Gutsy
Gibbon. AMD64.

After installing my own workstation a few times I get the same result
every time. When I run the KDE upgrade from the net the following
packages are installed.....

libkleopatra1 4:3.5.7enterprise20070926-0ubuntu2.1
karm 4:3.5.7enterprise20070926-0ubuntu2.1
libkpimidentities1 4:3.5.7enterprise20070926-0ubuntu2.1
kdepim-wizards 4:3.5.7enterprise20070926-0ubuntu2.1
kdepim-kio-plugins 4:3.5.7enterprise20070926-0ubuntu2.1
korganizer 4:3.5.7enterprise20070926-0ubuntu2.1
korganizer 4:3.5.7enterprise20070926-0ubuntu2.1
libkpimexchange1 4:3.5.7enterprise20070926-0ubuntu2.1
kontact 4:3.5.7enterprise20070926-0ubuntu2.1
kdebase-data 4:3.5.8-2ubuntu3~gutsy1~ppa1
libqt4-gui 4.3.2-0ubuntu3.2
kdepasswd 4:3.5.8-2ubuntu3~gutsy1~ppa1
khelpcenter 4:3.5.8-2ubuntu3~gutsy1~ppa1
kicker 4:3.5.8-2ubuntu3~gutsy1~ppa1

Can't understand why it's installing 3.5.7 packages into a 3.5.8
system ? After the upgrade KDE PIM dies and so does Kmail. Will not
start. If it does start then Kmail will not send mail. KDE begins
to slowly die away and crash. KDEbase shows error messages
in .xsession-errors which point to a broken system. Might be
something to do with some of the KDE libraries that are installed
after the upgrade. I have to switch to Balsa to send and receive
mail. Also, when I reboot I can't login to KDE and GDM takes over as
the window manager without me telling it to do that. Tried changing
permissions on my /home directory with no effect. Only thing I
haven't tried so far is to do 'dpkg --configure -a' after the upgrade
to see if that will fix everything and allow me back into my KDE

I've Googled for an answer and so far only found a reference to this
back in 2006. Looks like the bug has been reproduced in Gutsy AMD64
without anyone noticing it. Any way to fix this or get around it
would be helpful.

Default Upgrade Issues

Hello there

Hope everyone is looking forward to a good Christmas

I've just installed my AMD64 workstation with Ibex 8.10. Everything
is more or less fine except for dpkg and apt-get. After installing
and running the upgrade I get the following error...

166 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 1 not upgraded.
7 not fully installed or removed.
Need to get 0B/109MB of archives.
After this operation, 508kB of additional disk space will be used.
Do you want to continue [Y/n]? y
Extract templates from packages: 100%

dpkg: error processing passwd (--configure):
package passwd is not ready for configuration
cannot configure (current status `triggers-awaited')
Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

So, I am then told to run 'sudo dpkg --configure -a' to sort out the
error. Which does this...

sudo dpkg --configure -a
dpkg: ../../src/packages.c:221: process_queue: Assertion `dependtry <=
4' failed.


APT Error. Context:
Running dpkg,
[ /usr/bin/dpkg, --status-fd, 3, --configure, passwd ],
Sup-process returned error code 1,
Error processing passwd : package passwd is not ready for

AND ....

APT Error. Context:
Running dpkg,
[ /usr/bin/dpkg, --status-fd, 3, --configure, -a ],
Sub-process exited unexpectedly

So, is there anyone out there who knows how to fix this ? I could re-
install but it would be better to just fix the bug and move on.
Perhaps there is a dpkg --force option that might work ?

That seems to be a kind of known issue, but the bug report seems to have
no clear direction. Maybe you want to add your story there:

Default upgrade issues

I'm running Arch for quite a while on several machines. On one laptop
there were no updates applied for quite a while. It was running kde4.0
and was using hda instead of sda as harddisk device.
After applying all updates (download was roughly 1.8 GB) there are some
issues (mainly with kde 4.4.3).
All icons are missing until I switch icon-theme. After that there are
still lots of icons missing, kde itself (eg. log-off), kde-apps
(system-management), applications (k3b) and "unrelated" apps (opera).
Also missing are the rating stars inside dolphin and gwenview (and
probably others). I reinstalled all kde-meta packages wich pulled a view
additional packages but didn't change anything.
I tried to delete $HOME/.kde4 and also tried a newly created user. I
looked at all(?) *.pacnew files. The only somehow related was kdm but
couldn't find anything else.

Any hints?
Regards, Wolfgang

after a little investigation I found out that it seemed to miss the
oxygen icons. Reinstalling the oxygen-icons package did the trick.

two more issues (until now):
With cpufreq performance governer the laptop is running hot in kde (even
when idle). It cools down quite fast when running with ondemand.
powertop says the hr_timer is causing a lot of wakeups.
Wifi is beeing switched of from time to time (still investigating on this
one). dmesg says access point is not answering, which I doubt.
Machine is a Samsung Q35.

any hints?
