Yes, since updating yesterday I now get the same.  Pulseaudio playback results in silence through my USB soundcard, but alsa playback still seems to be working.  Unfortunately I can't get vlc to use alsa directly it seems, and mplayer is still broken when trying to play back videos, so I guess I have to use one of my 64-bit machines to play back my daily video collection.

I have the same last two lines in my boot log as you do.  Indeed, my investigations of /usr/lib/pulse-12.2/modules/ indicate it doesn't have any symbol named pa_alsa_ucm_device_update_available.

Yes, I currently have icu 63 unpacked inside my opt folder for the purposes of running libreoffice.

#3 Re: Installation » New massive update broke system (pentium4)? » Yesterday 04:55:07

Might be worth renaming the i686 build as pentium 4 and uploading that.  It might run slightly slower, but that library doesn't seem like it's something I'd really care about if it took a few extra clock cycles to run.

The above message appears to be entirely out of context, and carried commercial looking links.  I've therefore disabled the links, but I'm leaving the post here in case it was just posted in error, but my suspicion is this is a spammer trying to cover his tracks.

#5 Re: Press Review » In print » 2019-08-18 16:25:25

Yes, I admit I was only considering the i686 branch above, for historical reasons.  The i486 branch should enable us to use truly crusty machines.

Yes, you'll be on stable provided you don't have any other sections with the testing repo in square brackets in your pacmand.d after preprocessing.  The bit in square brackets is the name for it to use as $repo, so if you don't define [testing] and [community-testing] you won't be using those repos.

Nice.  I guess saying Pentium-II or better for the CPU is validated then.

I think it should work on a pentium-pro at the earliest, although I personally have no way of testing that (I used to have that chip on a bare motherboard once, but I think I must have junked that years ago now)

I'm glad to hear it's not only us suffering from rust's decisions on software development, and firefox's decision to use rust.

Good to hear you've got it working, and it makes sense that missing gnome-shell is kind of critical to a gnome 3 setup.  I reckon that's a singularly unhelpful error in the log though, having a working framebuffer shouldn't depend on what shell you're using, but thankfully you didn't have to rely on that to diagnose and fix your problem.

#11 Re: Kernel & Hardware » I could not configure the Xorg » 2019-08-08 19:19:46

This looks bad to me:

modprobe: FATAL: Module fbcon not found in directory /lib/modules/5.2.5-arch1-1.0-ARCH

I wonder if you've updated your kernel while running?  At the very least, I'd like to see inside /lib/modules.

#12 Re: Installation » [Solved] Gnome won't start in remastered Install ISO » 2019-08-08 19:16:21

Hmm, yes, if it can't open /dev/fb0 then that'll stop x in its tracks for most if not all configurations I'd expect.  Have you got one, an what are its permissions?  Mine for example:

$ ls -l /dev/fb0
crw-rw---- 1 root video 29, 0 Aug  8 15:28 /dev/fb0

If you have something different then I'm still not sure what would cause that, and what the best course of action is, but it's worth knowing I think.

#13 Pacman / Pacman Upgrades » netsurf and libcss broken » 2019-08-07 19:05:43

Replies: 0

I currently have libcss and libwapcaplet installed.  Libwapcaplet seems to be a dependency of netsurf, while I can't actually determine why I installed libcss, but it also depends on the same.

I found that when trying to upgrade my system, that libcss depends on >0.4.2 of libwapcaplet, but libwapcaplet is still only at 0.4.1-2.0.

Netsurf claims to depend directly on libwapcaplet itself.  As I stated in the first para, I don't actually know why I have libcss installed, and testing an -Rs on it seems to suggest it is entirely orphaned these days.

Removing libcss stops the upgrade failing, but when I test run netsurf I get the following assertion fail:

netsurf-gtk3: content/fetchers/curl.c:718: fetch_curl_initiate_fetch: Assertion `codem == CURLM_OK || codem == CURLM_CALL_MULTI_PERFORM' failed.

I don't actually need netsurf, and have proved pacman doesn't think I need libcss.  I think I'll remove both; I think I only installed netsurf to see where it was at these days.  But still, libcss was built on July30th and a new libwapcaplet is required for anyone genuinely using it.  And netsurf as shipped appears to be broken.

#14 Re: Pacman / Pacman Upgrades » [SOLVED] Can't install pamac-aur anymore » 2019-08-06 20:47:16

Yes, only pure i686 isos are still being built.  I'm not entirely sure what pacstrap will do when you tell it to install the base group into your newly formatted filesystems.  Presumably if a new enough pacman is in the iso then it'll do the test when invoked to do a -S and install to your mountpoint.

#15 Re: Pacman / Pacman Upgrades » [SOLVED] Can't install pamac-aur anymore » 2019-08-06 14:44:15

My makepkg.conf has CARCH set to pentium4 here, and I've never knowingly edited that file myself as I can recall.  According to pacman, it's part of the pacman package, which was updated at the very least at the end of may to be pentium 4.  Did you follow the instructions when the system migrated to pentium4 from the news thread?

#16 Re: Building » Uefi error with archiso32 » 2019-08-05 20:13:13

Is there any x86-32 only hardware with a UEFI based bootloader, over a BIOS one?  I have a first-gen core based server which can run Arch64 just fine but still has an older style bios.  I guess there's nothing stopping you trying out Arch32 on newer hardware mind you.

#17 Re: Pacman / Pacman Upgrades » [SOLVED] Can't install pamac-aur anymore » 2019-08-04 19:03:15

Yes, rework your PKGBUILD from the AUR package to be valid on your current architecture.  Basically you need to understand what it's doing first of all, but if it builds from source, adding 'pentium4' to the arch variable in there should be enough.  If it pulls down a zip file then more work will be needed, but in this particular case I'd expect a build from source, so won't document any further at this juncture.

#18 Re: Servers & Networking » [SOLVED] Network does not start at boot with 5.2.1 kernel » 2019-08-04 15:29:40

FWIW, I think it's a good idea for everyone to set their signature to signify what architecture they're using to identify differences in configuration like this more quickly in these discussions.  It's why I set my signature as I have at least.  Signatures are on the 'personality' tab of your profile, and the option to hide them if people start abusing them is on 'display', but thus far they're mostly unused here I've noticed.  There's no need for more than 1 line of signature really.  Anyone else agree?

#19 Re: Installation » kde some system settings showing blank » 2019-07-31 04:00:02

Hmm that's weird then.  The log file seems to be lying in that case.

#20 Re: Pacman / Pacman Upgrades » firefox 67.0.4-1 » 2019-07-30 16:02:33

This far at least, there have been no patches in firefox 67 or 68 that I can see that affect me, although if I weren't blocking most scripts, some of the security patches in 68 at least might worry me.  So I'm not worried yet, but I can't say that will last for long.

What's the prime cause for these blockers?  Is it a dependency maze where it takes a lot of work to calculate what to build first, or would we gain a lot with faster builds due to running newer hardware in 32-bit mode?

#21 Re: Installation » kde some system settings showing blank » 2019-07-30 15:54:38

Do you have any or all of those files mentioned in the error?  Looks to me like some of those errors are probably the result of earlier missing files, but it's a little hard for me to grok as is.

I'd look at least for *kcm_lookandfeel* in either /usr/bin or /usr/lib/qt/plugins, and *kcm_desktoptheme* (maybe that's both defined in the same, but I don't know these packages).  Everything else I can see at this point might be because it can't load those for whatever reason.

#22 Re: Pacman / Pacman Upgrades » LXQt & Qt5-5.13.0 - lxqt-panel problem? » 2019-07-29 20:27:15

Okay, thanks for testing that.  There's not any qt version of glxgears that I know of, and I don't really know what accessing opengl through qt would even mean to be honest.  But if lxpanel, qtpanel and an opengl test app are all working, it would suggest your workaround might be rather viable.

#23 Re: Pacman / Pacman Upgrades » LXQt & Qt5-5.13.0 - lxqt-panel problem? » 2019-07-28 15:51:42

Apparently that's used in OpenGL contexts at the very least.  I'd assume neither lxpanel nor qterminal use opengl but I'd no experience of them so I couldn't be sure.  Do you have anything installed that could test that out?  If not I'd suggest installing mesa-demos which at least gives you glxgears, and doesn't have the worst dependencies.

#24 Re: Servers & Networking » [SOLVED] Network does not start at boot with 5.2.1 kernel » 2019-07-28 05:05:09

Ah, that might explain why I've not hit this problem yet.  I just stuck with netctl from the default install.  Since 5.2.1 I have seen the machine drop off the network a little more frequently (perhaps at DHCP renegotiation, I'll have to check), but at boot it's always there for me.
