[Ceres] Xfce4: not more xfce4-panel | kernel 5.9

Hi.

Today, I updated my Ceres. I use Xfce4 as WM.
But after my reboot, I do not have xfc4-panel.

I test to use this command:

# xfce4-panel --replace

without success.

When I use:

# xfce4-panel --restart

A error message window appears, and inform that:
(message is in French)

Impossible de redémarrer le tableau de bord.
GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnkonwn:
The name org.xfce.Panel was not provided by any .service files

# xfwm4 --replace

not change anymore.

Just FYI:

uname: 5.9.0-1-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 5.9.1-1 (2020-10-17) x86_64 GNU/Linux

----

Oh, with the previous kernel 5.8.0-3-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 5.8.14-1 (2020-10-10) x86_64 GNU/Linux, Xfce4 runs correctly!

----


Any idea to resolve?

I have heard that the new kernel is really messed up.  And dbus is  . . . well . . .

also seen other (=alsa) errors in booting with new 5.9 kernel.. stick to 5.8 from testing/chimaera, and maybe file/search a bug report in debian about it..

Sounds like it's expecting a systemd unit file to be running. But this could just be a ceres SNAFU, waiting a bit then updating again can fix things sometimes.

@Head_on_a_Stick: yes, I believe, too.

Thanks @ll

I, also, found 5.9 to cause hard failures (mine were largely with VirtualBox). It's fixable with a rollback to 5.7.

Thanks. I rollback on the previous 5.8.x wink

Kernel 5.9 also doesn't work with NVIDIA blobs...
