Re: Black screen with mouse pointer on MD (0810 alpha 2.28 + updates)

I had this problem (once I got my MD to actually boot - long story).

The logging screen (alt-F12) showed that it was unable to find a file (Modules.dep, I believe). So, on my core, I copied the file over from the core's directory to the MD's and then rebooted.

Just another possible solution for you!

Hello shakeel,

I have downgrade the nvidia driver to 173 without result.
I have not use "envyng" but the system "hardware drivers" kde4 application.

I don't think it is a nvidia driver issue.

Regards,
Philippe

Hello wierdbeard65,

When I look on the Alt-F12 screen (just after the black screen) I see nothing that talk to me.
But, I have check the syslog file and search the different errors it give me.

Here the result:
Code: [Select]
root@moon74:~# cat /var/log/syslog.0 | grep error

Sep  6 02:00:12 moon74 automount[15730]: >> mount error 6 = No such device or address
root@moon74:~#

It can be a  OrbiterGL segfault that caused my problem ?
I've installed so many times the system, I hope it is this and that a solution can be found.

Regards,
Philippe

Hello Peter,

Like I said to wierdbeard65 before, Alt-F12 screen, just after the black screen, give me nothing.
But it may be that it appears too fast.
I have look at the syslog and maybe I have find the problem.
I'm not sure (look at my previous post please) but the ObiterGL segfault can be the culprit.
I have the same errors on Kimberley MD:
Code: [Select]
dcerouter_1001352:/usr/pluto/bin# cat /usr/pluto/diskless/103/var/log/syslog |grep error

Hi Philippe,

check your /etc/fstab what should be mounted and if everything is mounted

you could also take a look in the mtab

looks like there are issues with mounting some of the filesystem over the net
try to mount manually

I've just verify and all is mounted !
I've only grep the errors so, it is misleading.

what about access rights?

in some other thread I saw also some setup issues related to some network switch problem.
are those MDs connected to other devices ore maybe (if managed) port setup different?

They have the same access and setup than the others.

For information, I've just delete and recreate the bad MD (with UI1).
If I check errors in this MD syslog, I found those:

Code: [Select]
dcerouter_1001352:~# cat /usr/pluto/diskless/116/var/log/syslog |grep error
Sep  6 14:14:30 moon116 kernel: [  959.975449] LMCE_Launch_Man[29765]: segfaultat 0 ip 080648f8 sp b7a88130 error 4 in LMCE_Launch_Manager[8048000+41000]
Sep  6 14:14:36 moon116 kernel: [  966.042011]  CIFS VFS: Send error in SessSetup = -13
Sep  6 14:14:36 moon116 automount[31927]: >> mount error 13 = Permission denied
dcerouter_1001352:~#



I have a new segfault but it is now on LMCE_Launch_Man.
Everything is mounted, I have verify.

Dear Philippe,

get a console on your MD and check

apt-get udate and upgrade

if upgrade says you need to dpkg --configure -a
some install did not finish

check also
/usr/pluto/bin/mythtv_setup.sh if it is executeable.
I had this issue now with the latest upgrade on the Core, which resulted in a broken setup an a blackscreen with white pointer

did a chmod 755 on mythtv_setup.sh
did apt-get upgrade

After that still there was the problem with the black screen and white pointer
and no way to activate my MythTV.

So I deleted all software from the OnScreen Orbiter (WebAdmin>Mediadirectors>affected Orbiter> Software Button)
I took off the pipe from all packages like MediaPlayer, MythTV BluetoothDongle......
Rebuilt Orbiter - Reload Router  - working
Reactivated the Software in the WebAdmin - wait for install finished and reload Regen reload
Now working again


edit:  after reboot not anymore working

Hope this helps for your problem as well.....

edit: so it will not help

Regards

Peter

Hello Peter,

I liked to announce it work, but it is allways the same.
After the update, dist-upgrade, deleted all software from the OnScreen Orbiter, rebuilt Orbiter and reload Router, it give only the bad screen.
I still tried reactivated the Software, Rebuilt Orbiter and reload router but I've nothing better.

I think I'm about to throw this MD to bulky !

The only positive point is that I did not have a segfault.

Regards,
Philippe

PS: Before post this, I've just read your edit ;-)

what does your MD do if u hit F8 , F6 and then F7 key?

does the orbiter appear?

for my broken core setup (still broken) this at least makes the orbiter come onto the screen
On startup it says Orbiter running on 127.0.0.1

This is just to verfy if it is the same problem

My MDs are not yet updated and still working fine

Hi Peter,

The F6, F7 and F8 keys give nothing.
I think that the orbiter don't start.

I have now reinstalled my core.
Still fighting with Xorg because of my old monitor which supports only special refresh rates.

Once I have my core Xorg up again I ll let you know.

What I found is some strange double entries in the Device status overview of the WebAdmin
( after deleting almost all I decided to reinstall the core bcause it became instable)

It showed more entries than the standard Device tree view
Maybe  u find there a Orbiter plugin too much or some other App..

Peter,
Did it work?

I still have two MDs that are affected.  I also noticed that all of my MDs have a phantom TV device - "Acquos LCxxD6U / LCxxD7u/TV."  I don't have any Acquos TV.  I deleted it in the web admin and rebooted, but it was rediscovered.

I'm not sure if this has anything to do with the black screen & pointer, but thought I would mention the anomoly.

Please do an sqlcvs update of the dce repository. This was fixed a few weeks ago, and was the result of a bad checkin from a user.
