xvesa upgrade breaks conky...
« on: February 26, 2015, 10:16:49 PM »
Xvesa 1.1 upgrade broke conky.

Removing Xvesa and re-installing Xvesa-old restored conky functionality.

Attempting to launch conky via terminal on Xvesa 1.1 resulted in the following error:
Code: [Select]
tc@box:~$ conky
Conky: desktop window (3a) is root window
Conky: drawing to desktop window
Conky: drawing to double buffer
XIO:  fatal IO error 11 (Resource temporarily unavailable) on X server ":0.0"
      after 141 requests (141 known processed) with 0 events remaining.
Let me know if you need additional information.

Do the startup messages differ on old Xvesa? Does it not try to use double-buffering, etc?

Attempting to run conky without double buffer results in the same IO error:
Code: [Select]
tc@box:~$ conky
Conky: desktop window (3a) is root window
Conky: drawing to desktop window
Conky: drawing to single buffer
XIO:  fatal IO error 11 (Resource temporarily unavailable) on X server ":0.0"
      after 146 requests (146 known processed) with 0 events remaining.

Here's my conkyrc if it helps. Pretty basic, ran perfectly fine under the old Xvesa.

My system is up to date, running latest conky, Xvesa and TC6.1rc1.

Latest what? You want me retry after upgrading to rc2?

Latest Xvesa, it was updated ~20min ago.

Removed and installed latest Xvesa and problem persists, same IO error message, still breaks conky. Let me know if you want me to try anything else, otherwise i will revert to Xvesa-old. Thanks.

Edit: Toggled every conkyrc parameter i thought may contribute to the problem with no luck.

1.2 fixed it for me with the default conky config, I'll try your config next week.

edit: Your config works for me?

Thanks for mentioning Xvesa v1.2.

Network connection and everything else on my system is otherwise working well, but both Apps GUI and tce-ab only show Xvesa-old and Xvesa v1.1, not 1.2.

tcemirror indicates http://distro.ibiblio.org/tinycorelinux/

Maybe a delay in getting v1.2 uploaded to the repository? Which repo do you usually update first?... or am i missing something?

Edit: the ftp repo also just shows Xvesa v1.1

Edit: okay, now got the update, conky works fine with Xvesa 1.2, thanks for the fix - problem solved.

There is usually a ~one day delay with mirrors. We update the primary/master repo at tinycorelinux.net, then mirrors pull at their own schedules. Some update hourly, ibiblio daily.
