Re: artsd crashes after upgrade

Yeah, I posted in the wrong forum.   Cmf, the new maintainer is already on to fixing it:

See my post in newbie "pkg not in sync DB" for a solution to the problem.

Yeah, I usually don't use KDE for much, but I'm getting the error, too. Hope it gets fixed soon... smile

Re: artsd crashes after upgrade

You have to recompile arts with gcc 3.4. It have done that and I don't have errors.

Re: artsd crashes after upgrade

I recompiled arts 1.2.2 and it did not work.  Maybe Abaddon has another trick?  Was it one of the 'unstable' nightly versions of arts?

Also, reverting to the previous kdelibs/kdemultimedia does not work for the recompiled arts 1.2.2, but everything works again if I reinstall the arch arts 1.2.2-1 (still with thge older kdelibs/kdemultimedia).

Re: artsd crashes after upgrade

This is what I done:

pacman -Syu
abs
cd /var/abs/extra/kde/arts/
makepkg
pacman --upgrade arts

After that everything works fine.

Re: artsd crashes after upgrade

Yep all that needs to be done is a new arts package compiled against the new libs and such needs to be made. Once that is done everyones issue with the new kdelibs and kdemultimedia should be resolved. I've always understood that anytime you compile a new kdelibs and kdemultimedia package you have recompile the arts package against them aswell. I dunno where I read that probably on another site somewhere.

Re: artsd crashes after upgrade

Previously compiling with arts 1.2.2 from arts source failed, today I tried using Abaddon's method and it too failed for me.  When reverting to kdelibs-3.2.2-2/kdemultimedia-3.2.2-1 the recompiled arts from Abaddon's method failed as well (this happened when I used the arts source and reverted to the old kde packages as well).  The only way it works for me is with the arch arts-1.2.2-1 and kdelibs-3.2.2-2/kdemultimedia-3.2.2-1.

I would recommend trying Abaddon's solution if you are having thios problem, as it may be something i have done in my install.  If that fails, you can easily revert from packages in your cache (assuming you have not cleared it and you have installed kde prior to the kdelibs-3.2.2-3/kdemultimedia-3.2.2-2 release).  Here is what I did:

su
cd /var/cache/pacman/pkg
pacman -U arts-1.2.2-1.pkg.tar.gz kddemultimedia-3.2.2-1.pkg.tar.gz kdelibs-3.2.2-2.pkg.tar.gz

restart x to see if it worked.  You don't need to do arts-1.2.2-1.pkg.tar.gz if you have not tried to recompile arts first.

Not to be a whiner or anything, but why can't the maintainer just issue a new recompiled arts package? I was told that was being done, but I haven't seen anything.

Re: artsd crashes after upgrade

Ok, sorry for the wait people, but an old reverted pkg of libs and multimedia is up, i'm waiting on a KDE account to start work on 3.2.3 (was released about 5 days ago to packagers), this should fix until then, thanks, and once again sorry.

Excellent, thanks! No need for apologies. I see our new KDE maintainer is a dedicated and serious one smile Looking forward to 3.2.3.

Re: artsd crashes after upgrade

Nice to see some positive feedback.

This KDE issue has really made me feel like shit because it was my 1st 'real' update and i messed it up for everyone else, but finally it is fixed and onto to bigger and better (and stabler wink) things.

Thanks

Re: artsd crashes after upgrade

i had those ugly fonts too. all i did was reconfigure my fonts in control center to bitstream vera fonts and they are ok now. except when visiting kde.org with konqueror. think it had something to di with xscreensaver upgrade. just a thought.
