Dear all,

I've just done a DU and now X will not start. It installed xserver-xorg and x11-common 1:7.6+11.

I am using nouveau, as described in the manual.

My Xorg.0.log can be found at http://paste.pocoo.org/show/543581/.

Some extra info from infobash:

      Code:

Host/Kernel/OS  "t510" running Linux 3.2-2.slh.3-aptosid-amd64 x86_64 [ sidux 2010-01 Ύπνος - kde-full - (201006131622) ]
CPU Info        4x Intel Core i5 M 520 @ 3072 KB cache flags( sse3 ht nx lm vmx ) clocked at [ 1199.000 MHz ]
Videocard       nVidia GT218 [NVS 3100M]  tty resolution ( 170x48 )
Network cards   Intel 82577LM Gigabit
                Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6200
Processes 103 | Uptime 5min | Memory 125.2/3822.2MB | HDD C300-CTFDDAC128M Size 128GB (42%used) | Runlevel 5 | Client Shell | Infobash v3.41


Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Best,

Luis

for those already bitten by this bug

just create the symlink
      Code:

cd /lib
ln -s libaudit.so.1.0.0  libaudit.so.0


Adenda: as the current testing version the same as the previous from sid u can also install this version after adding testing to your sources.list, instead of the previous hotfix

Looks like I saw this thread after is too late.

I have been using aptosid for the last 8 months and have no problems, but today was the first time.

Only saw one update (libaudit) and did the upgrade thinking it wouldn't pose problems, and like you say X is dead.

Is there a way I can revert the changes? I'm a newbie and don't have any knowledge on holding packages, so please advise carefully.

Sad

Thank you.

For what is worth, the fix worked for me.

Thanks, x-un-i.

>> x-un-i

I did the hotfix and everything seems okay now. GDM is OK and I can start my Xfce session like normal.
Thanks for the fast help.

Tell me, must I to do anything else (maybe undo the symbolic link?) if and when the fixed libaudit is introduced? Any other precautions I should be taking note of? Sorry for asking noob-questions.

Much thanks for the prompt help.

yes undo the symlink before updating the libaudit0 package is recommended
you can do it right now installing the testing version of the package ( is equal the old one from sid) take a look into the
manual

Does this mean that libaudit0 should be taken off hold from testing and a d-u is safe now?

Rick
