I made another desktop-live iso with changes that I hope will address the udev delays. If anyone who was getting messages like the one below could test the new iso, it would be a big help. Thanks.

Downloading as we speak.

However I don't know how much help can I be, because the last few times I tried to boot the old iso from hdd the message did not get displayed and the system worked. The behaviour is non-deterministic.

Nevertheless, I'll get the iso and try booting from both hdd and a real dvd, we'll see what happens.

UPDATE:
Unfortunately error is still there.
I did 2 attempts - first, from hdd, worked ok.
Second - from a real dvd got me straight to the error message.
As during previous tries, when all goes ok, the font gets changed. When the font doesn't get changed, the error appears.

Thanks. It does help to know what won't fix it.

Re: Beowulf Beta is here!

Just for my understanding: if one already has Ascii installed, Beowulf is now ready/stable enough to be upgraded to?

Re: Beowulf Beta is here!

It would be helpful if we had a few more datapoints here.
It's always possible that I've screwed something up on my own.

I DID check the sha256 sum and it matches.

Re: Beowulf Beta is here!

and I won't do a bug report because its easy to fix,
but I flashed an usb stick with my above iso

booting up to live, my usb mouse froze.
pulling and re-inserting it fixed it instantly.

I have no such glitches on the hard drive install.

Thanks for reading.

Maybe. If you're using avahi, you shouldn't remove it. Same goes for pulseaudio.

Something new - on a usb burn tho. My usb wasn't affected, just cd burns.

Yes I am in the process of installing on a HP intel onboard graphics and have no such usb mouse freeze.

so I booted my tower back up...mouse still freezes and the only log that shows some strangeness is below

I am guessing the motherboard AMD and that kernel did not want to party as...my SSD boot file contains similar udev messages,
the difference of course is I see a fairly fast boot up compared to usb boot up which seems to take ages in comparison

Re: Beowulf Beta is here!

@fsmithred

Yikes  sorry for wasting time. I was using the iso dated Mar 11
downloading your newer one now.

post 56 does not show my atime date. So I mislead you.

EDIT

similar results for the iso dated 2020-03-25

I am not going to pursue this any further. My SSD boots up with decent speed.

cheers

I've just tried this fix and it didn't work when I booted from real dvd. Caps lock works, but not alt-f1/f2. The console font didnt change.
After that I rebooted from the same image located on hdd, and it worked. The console font changed.
It SEEMS that the probability of encountering this error is much higher when booting from real physical dvd.

I am using the image that fsmithred posted in this thread named

Re: Beowulf Beta is here!

Some more feedback:
I've installed another test system from the live cd using debootstrap, and when I boot this message appears:
udev: group "kvm" not registered (or not found)
The system boots fine though.
After about 10 reboots I got the "... not registered after 100000 microsecs" message when booting that system from hard drive. It only happened once.

EDIT: It is of course possible that I've screwed the already installed to hd system by myself, I've been doing horrible things with it since it's a test drive.
About 5 reboots right after the install were ok, although it's a more complex setup with lvm, crypt, and zfs.
The system seems to be working fine overall, though there were some oddities.

Re: Beowulf Beta is here!

I burned the 3/25 iso to dvd, booted and got the udev warning. Pressing alt-F2 does nothing. Really nothing. I can't change to another tty. Pressinc ctrl-c seems to stop the warnings.

On another machine, I booted from a usb that has a regular install from a netinstall iso on it. When I got to the desktop, the keyboard was not working. Unplug/replug the keyboard fixed it.

Update: boot dvd on laptop, keyboard doesn't work, trackpad and trackpoint don't work. Can't unplug them.

Re: Beowulf Beta is here!

If there was more to the refractasnapshot message, I'd like to see it. The syslinux dependency is as follows:

syslinux (< 3:6.03)  |  syslinux (>= 3:6.03), syslinux (< 3:6.03) | isolinux (>= 3:6.03)

It's been like that for a few years. (Translation: syslinux older than 6.03, which included isolinux, or both syslinux and isolinux at least version 6.03)

The non-pae kernel is default for those with old machines. The linux-headers package is in the iso, but it does not get installed by default. That's standard for debian and consequently for devuan.

You probably need to remove or purge the pavucontrol package to get rid of the .desktop file.

Re: Beowulf Beta is here!

Just to report how I've (finally) managed to upgrade to Beowulf (Cinnamon edition).

System

My system: AMD Phenom II X4 910e, NVidia GeForce GT 710B. 8 GB RAM. 24" Dell U2415 (1920 x 1200 x 60 Hz).
ASCII installed (4.09-12 kernel) on 2 x 500GB SSD as RAID1 with root (/dev/md0), home  (/dev/md1) and swap (/dev/md2) partitions. Collection of other SSD and spinning rust drives. I've using the NVidia default drivers.

I first mounted the Beowulf 3.0.0 ISO on one of my other hard drives and added it to grub (via 40_custom in /etc/grub.d).

Live ISO

Booted this up without difficulty. Network connect fine.

Then, having backed up the root (dev/md0) partition (using fsarchiver), I attempted to do do an upgrade in place.

Upgrade in place

I followed the beta.devian "Upgrade to Beowulf' guide.

This mostly seemed to work, however at the end of the process I ended up with a completely locked screen: a full hi-res graphic login screen, but mouse and keyboard frozen, so I couldn't even get a console. I chrooted into the system and managed to unlock root, however despite playing around in the console ('m much happier working with multiple xterms and graphical tools such as synnaptic and GParted to hand). I couldn't work out a solution. I'm a sudo user so I wouldn't normally have a root password.Also I think having the Nvidia drivers may have contributed since the following the instructions only main and not contrib and non-free are enabled in the repository and the nvidia pacvckages are in non-free.

Expert Install of root and link to /home

Had a number of goes at this, but eventually decided to use the devuan_beowulf_3.0.0_beta_amd64_desktop.iso and do an 'expert install' of the root partition: the expert option is required so as to get the cinnamon desktop and in my case control over where to install the new root file system.

Having done this before (when I installed ASCII on RAID) it wasn't particularly difficult. The main problem I had was knowing what sequence of choices I need to do in the partitioning step as I didn't want to destroy the other partitions on the various disks on my system. I also decided to not make the partition bootable, which came back to bite me later. I choose a user name and password and set myself up to sudo rather than enable a root password.

Anyway I completed the install. The desktop came up fine (nouveau vido driver) and network connection worked. I then backed this up and restored it to my original root partition (/dev/md0). I modified fstab to mount my asciil home partition (/dev/md1) at /home and removed the (short list of) existing files in /home.

Rebooted to get most of my ascii desktop. and used synaptic to install Evolution (my preferred  mail client/Calendar/Contacts), this then reloaded my mail archive and account settings.I did have to install an /etc/aliases for access my mail spool (for root messages).

Rythmbox automatically found my Music.I did have to enable autospawn (etc/pulse/client.conf.d/00-disable-autospawn.conf) to get pulseaudio working.

Firefox kept nearly all of my settings, although it did disable DoH - naughty - should be my choice.

Network Manager (the default in Cinnamon) also worked, 'out of the box'.

I then had to install the grub packages and fix grub.

Having done another backup, and having enabled contrib and nonfree I ran sudo apt-get install nvidia-driver to make full us of my graphics card. Although it complained (as it had when I tried to do it via an upgrade), failing with Nvidia persistentd, it did work and I now have accelerated video again.

Final thoughts

For the moment I would suggest not upgrading in place if you are running the proprietary NVidia drivers or if you use sudo.

Installing a new Beowulf system in the root partition and then linking it with your /home partition seems more robust (but do back them up first). I suspect I could have linked them directly in the installer but out of an abundance of caution I didn't.

Re: Beowulf Beta is here!

That's really weird. I've installed refractasnapshot in beowulf a few times. And isolinux is a real package.

$ apt-cache policy isolinux
isolinux:
  Installed: 3:6.04~git20190206.bf6db5b4+dfsg1-1
  Candidate: 3:6.04~git20190206.bf6db5b4+dfsg1-1
  Version table:
 *** 3:6.04~git20190206.bf6db5b4+dfsg1-1 500
        500 http://deb.devuan.org/merged beowulf/main amd64 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

Make sure you have all three lines in /etc/apt/sources.list and run 'apt update'

deb http://deb.devuan.org/merged beowulf main
deb http://deb.devuan.org/merged beowulf-updates main
deb http://deb.devuan.org/merged beowulf-security main

If that isn't the problem, try installing syslinux and isolinux first, then install refractasnapshot.

Re: Beowulf Beta is here!

Hi guys

Altho I am still happy with my internal boot speed. Seeing others have some similar issues to me I thought I might search for the udev error.

I got a hit or 2 from a systemd based distro but they are discussing lvm2, and I do not use lvm.
Before I editted my last reply....I thought it might because of my AMD motherboard which asks users to have specific usb lead kb and mouse in ports next to the PS/2 connector.

So I did test swapping the leads to other connectors on my tower....no change.

I then deleted lvm2.......no change...but I restored that image for the moment.

but it might still be my hard drive set up.

su
/sbin/blkid
/dev/sda1: LABEL="s1" UUID="hidden" TYPE="ext4" PARTUUID="hidden"
/dev/sda2: LABEL="sswap" UUID="hidden" TYPE="swap" PARTUUID="hidden"
/dev/sda3: LABEL="s3" UUID="hidden" TYPE="ext4" PARTUUID="hidden"
second drive not relevant

In the install process I opted out of UUID fstab....then changed to a fstab like this

LABEL=s1 / ext4    defaults,noatime    0    1
LABEL=sswap none    swap    sw         0    0
LABEL=s3 /s3 ext4 users,rw            0     2

s3 is my data partition....I do not have a separate boot or home. I use fsarchiver to save restore images to s3 using a live usb.

Finally I should mention....this hard drive use to sit in a tradition MBR motherboard and my new mobo only allows me to choose CSM or UEFI....I choose CSM as I have no efi partition.

This may all be irrelevant, but what I am trying to say, it might be my setup that causes udev some issues?

EDIT
just rebooted with an UUID fstab no change to udev delays

thanks for reading

Re: Beowulf Beta is here!

Is Devuan 3 ready to update prod servers from 2.1? I have no heavy load servers, but I need a native php7.3 and a stable system without X, DE and other... actually, only LAMP (in ESXi).

Re: Beowulf Beta is here!

Hi
I finally spotted but needed prompting this post
https://dev1galaxy.org/viewtopic.php?id=1925

as my removal of systemd stuff is on the beta iso I thought I would share the little I know here
And I am glad that link is a sticky too.

For those anal creatures like me, who boasts they have no systemd on their PC....read on or ignore as you see fit. My testing is very sparse but FF streaming youtube is fine and local media files mp4 and mp3 are fine after doing this playing using VLC

This is tested only on beowulf_3.0.0_beta dated Mar 11 not Mar 25 clean install on internal hard drive.

# find / -name systemd
> /var/lib/systemd
> /lib/systemd
> /usr/lib/systemd
> /etc/systemd
> /run/systemd
# rm -rf /var/lib/systemd /lib/systemd /usr/lib/systemd /etc/systemd /run/systemd

full reboot finds  only one gremlin found (so far)
I lose GUI restart and shutdown as per image

this I have fixed for now with 2 new desktops with contents

echo '[Desktop Entry]
Version=1.0
Type=Application
Exec=pkexec /sbin/shutdown -r now
Icon=system-log-out
StartupNotify=false
Terminal=false
Name=restart
Name[en_US.UTF-8]=restart' > Desktop/restart.desktop

echo '[Desktop Entry]
Version=1.0
Type=Application
Exec=pkexec /sbin/shutdown -h now
Icon=system-log-out
StartupNotify=false
Terminal=false
Name=shutdown' > Desktop/shutdown.desktop

chmod 755 Desktop/shutdown.desktop
chmod 755 Desktop/restart.desktop

YMMV
