[SOLVED] Last update breaks GNOME desktop with GDM

GNOME desktop with GDM displayed an "Oops!" screen after last update.

Debugging is still in-progress. Not sure which packages to downgrade. Enable testing and community-testing does not help.

Re: [SOLVED] Last update breaks GNOME desktop with GDM

That gjs is outdated wrt its libraries certainly doesn't help ....

$ ldd /usr/bin/gjs
	linux-gate.so.1 (0xb7f78000)
	libgjs.so.0 => /usr/lib/libgjs.so.0 (0xb7e49000)
	libglib-2.0.so.0 => /usr/lib/libglib-2.0.so.0 (0xb7cfc000)
	libgobject-2.0.so.0 => /usr/lib/libgobject-2.0.so.0 (0xb7c9d000)
	libgio-2.0.so.0 => /usr/lib/libgio-2.0.so.0 (0xb7a98000)
	libstdc++.so.6 => /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6 (0xb7887000)
	libgcc_s.so.1 => /usr/lib/libgcc_s.so.1 (0xb7869000)
	libc.so.6 => /usr/lib/libc.so.6 (0xb76a9000)
	libgirepository-1.0.so.1 => /usr/lib/libgirepository-1.0.so.1 (0xb7683000)
	libffi.so.7 => not found

libffi.so.7 => not found is a good indicator that libffi33 could temporarily fix the problem. :-)

Tried it. No, that didn't help.

Re: [SOLVED] Last update breaks GNOME desktop with GDM

local/gjs 2:1.70.0-1
    Javascript Bindings for GNOME

Solved by manually updating gjs from staging. The current version in stable is severely broken.
Strongly recommend to promote the package to stable ASAP.
