Qingy and the new gcc

This is just a heads up for anyone that is using qingy and is thinking about upgrading to the new gcc in testing, that qingy does indeed need to be recompiled before reboot. It works fine after a recompile, but if you reboot without, qingy will be totally busted (I guess thats why the qingy devs suggest not turning it on on one of the consoles, eh  8) )

It would if qingy were an official package

Are you sure you have glibc 2.4-2 installed?

Re: Qingy and the new gcc

Have you gotten it to compile previously? The pkgbuild in the aur builds fine for me. Your errors say your missing the fcntl.h file, which looks like it belongs to the kernel headers. It looks like the fcntl.h on my box came with with came with kernel26beyond, but I would assume it comes with any kernel you use. Perhaps you don't have a kernel thats compiled against the new glibc?

Re: Qingy and the new gcc

the error was that pacman somehow fscked up my kernel-headers install on a -Syu

I reinstalled kernel-headers and then it compiled. Now hovewer i have the problem that i just get a black screen on bootup (like detailed in the qingy FAQ) but i can't remedy the situation!

http://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?t=5665&start=20 <-- last poster got the same issue as me aswell, and i also have a nvidia card so maybe it's the same issue.

Do you have an nvidia card as well barebones?

Re: Qingy and the new gcc

Yeah, I do have a nvidia card. You might want to try re-installing your nvidia drivers. Does running the command

fbset

output anything?

Also, does the file /etc/fb.modes have anything in it?

Re: Qingy and the new gcc

yup to both.

kris|~$ fbset

mode "1024x768-76"
    # D: 78.653 MHz, H: 59.949 kHz, V: 75.694 Hz
    geometry 1024 768 1024 768 16
    timings 12714 128 32 16 4 128 4
    rgba 5/11,6/5,5/0,0/0
endmode

/etc/fb.modes has a bunch of stuff.

Ive already checked out and tried everything in the directfb man page and the qingy docs but nothing seems to help. I suppose the last thing I try will be to reinstall nvidia drivers and see if that works.

question: if i update my kernel and glibc and everything at the same time as i update my nvidia drivers: will the nvidia drivers be updated correctly? hmm hmm hmm..

me updateds nvidia drivers to see.

qingy -t text mode works btw.

Re: Qingy and the new gcc

I usually update my nvidia drivers every time there's a new kernel, usually theres no problems. I'm pretty sure I did when I moved to testing, as well, so I don't think you'll have problems.

Re: Qingy and the new gcc

Did you rebuilt directfb against the testing stuff? If not, rebuild it then rebuild qingy. I don't know if it'll change something because, when I checked yesterday, directfb didn't depend explicitly on the stuff in testing. However, that solved similar problem I had in the past. It's the only thing I can suggest right now as I don't use testing and don't have a nvidia card.

Re: Qingy and the new gcc

Try removing the '-f /dev/fb0 ' option. I tried something similar a while ago and, IIRC, it was giving me black screens.

If that doesn't fix it, run 'ldd /sbin/qingy*' and look for any "not found" message.
