GSlacky-2.24.3 Report

Messaggioda mohaa » gio apr 09, 2009 22:21

Hi,
I noticed few things limiting use of the GSlacky Desktop 2.24.3

PolicyKit
It may need few tweaks to work. Loading it from command line, you may see :
Codice: Seleziona tutto
$ polkit-gnome-authorization
polkit-read-auth-helper: cannot lookup group info for gid 87
On default install, it's impossible to use it, hence impossible to manage authorizations/permissions.
/etc/dbus-1/system.d/org.freedesktop.PolicyKit.conf blablabla states this
<!-- Only polkituser can own the service -->
<policy user="polkituser">
<allow own="org.freedesktop.PolicyKit"/>
</policy>
polkituser as USER is not created by default (complains on stdout on start-up)

NetworkManager
Works partially. I tried with two different wireless chips (Intel3945 and Realtek) to be sure it is not hardware issue.
Wicd works out of the box. NM lists hardware but no wireless network. Network tools output accurate info as well.

NB: there's some debug info on stdout at shutdown regarding NM. Plus stopping it from rc.networkmanager may simply result in a hang on wpa_supplicant :?

Compiz
Everything looks OK except you can not grab a single window when running a compositing manager. They remain static.

PulseAudio
PulseAudio is more modular than the rest Gnome : 4 configuration files, 3 groups, 1 user (+policykit)... The session-managened model works. Problem is for use with third party audio daemons. The official docs at http://pulseaudio.org/wiki/PerfectSetup are no solution yet on the system-wide point. One example of system-wide use is with MPD. If you have audio at system start-up for MPD, you will not hear a bip in Gnome, vice-versa. Note that PA will fail on vanilla Slackware simply for the original kernel doesn't support a scheduling model. If someone has positive experience of PulseAudio + MPD combination on GSlacky, please share it :thumbright:
I could have been shorter, all apologizes and much thanks for your time :oops:

Thanks Mohaa, for my mistake, the Policykit package missing the doinst.sh script. Please go in /source/devlib/PolicyKit.
Edit the SlackBuild script and change the line 128, and rebuild the package. Sorry again! It will be fixed for the next GSlacky-2.26.1.

PulseAudio > do you consider build for system-wide use ? Yet it's a pity one has to login into a session play with sound. This is the kind of behavior you'd expect from too alternative OS :roll: did I say windoz yet ?
PulseAudio > Would re-install for *testing* because I bloated everything during various fix attempts.
extra report : clock-applet is locked and shows only hour/time. no weaher forecast. changing the "home" output a box that displays this :
Codice: Seleziona tutto
Impostazione del fuso orario del sistema non riuscita
Launch helper exited with unknown return code 1

By the way, Isn't there suposed to be a stb-admin group ? :-k

1) NetworkManger work with dhcpd4, and also GSlacky package work with dhcpd4. But without replacing the standard Slackware dhcpd package, the NetworkManger.SlackBuild install "Ad hoc" copy of Dhcpd4 under /usr/libexec/dhcpd4. Take a look to the script /source/devlib/NetworkManager. Try to build also the last version of NM http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/GNOME/sources/ ... 00.tar.bz2 maybe your problem is fixed.

2) About Compiz, really i don't know, maybe it's a bug.

3) About Pulseaudio, yes i can reinclude the rc.d script. But disabled by default. PulseAudio use /etc/xdg/autostart by default, and this is the suggested way to setup it. I know that at the first boot the login sound don't work, because Gnome start PulseAudio after login sound.
For MPD, you need a MPD version with Pulseaudio support. And for setup take a look to this page http://www.ubuntugeek.com/howto-get-mpd ... heron.html

4) The gnome-system-tool (Clock-applet) work with "adm" group now. A standard Slackware group. And no need anymore Policykit-gnome.
