#1 Re: Other Issues » installing python libraries with pip in devuan » 2019-08-09 20:24:36

thanks!

the command i used installs the latest pip (ver. 19.2.1), while the pip in ascii is ver. 9.0.1.  maybe that's what caused the installation error for other python packages.

how do i remove PIP i already installed?  i looked through 'synaptics' for installed packages but couldn't find it.

hi,

I installed python pip in debian wheezy before I upgraded my system to devuan stable.

these are the command I used:

wget https://bootstrap.pypa.io/get-pip.py
python get-pip.py

however, when I tried to install additional python libraries after devuan upgrade, I received error:

pip install numpy keras matplotlib  pandas

i have icewm WM installed and startx will start 'icewm', no display manager being used.

i upgraded to ascii from Debian Wheezy on this particular machine last night, in wheezy, it directly boot into 'icewm' once start the machine.  however, after upgrading to ascii, it failed to enter 'icewm' after init is done, instead displaying error message on the screen and bring me to user log in prompt, after loggin in as my username, i typed 'startx' and enter, it can launch into icewm but the screen would freeze every time.

The onscreen error message instructs me to look at '/home/erdos/.local/share/xorg/Xorg.0.log for details so it's up-to-date log info.

i will look at my /etc/inittab file for any hints.

it seems the new 'xorg' has changed its behavior in ascii comparing with prior jessie xorg - since i know the same setup works under both Debian Wheezy and Devuan Jessie from experience.

hi, i upgraded Debian Wheezy installed on an Sony-vaio netbook to Devuan Jessie with success.

But after running further upgrade to ascii, i encounter issues:
the upgrade itself was a success, no errors.

but after i rebooted the machine, as soon as i started x, the screen freezes, with no response from mouse or keyboard.

here's the related error info in '~/.local/share/Xorg/Xorg.0.log'

I have had this issue on several installs, but with eth0.  This has been discussed here:

The fix seems to be to not have /etc/network/interfaces do anything, except for lo, the file contents should be:

# This file describes the network interfaces available on your system
# and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).

source /etc/network/interfaces.d/*

# The loopback network interface
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

This will get rid of the boot delay and allow you network manager (wicd, network-manager, whatever) to control the network connection.  If you do not use a network manager, then you probably just need to do an ifconfig wlan0 up prior to your other manual connection commands.

My problem with this was with ethernet, hopefully the resolution for your wireless is the same, as posted.


The MTA delay probably has to do with exim4 now being installed by default.  You may want a mail transport agent, I personally find it not needed on my system.  You can purge exim4 and all associates if you do not want the mail transport, this will get rid of that delay.

After I deleted lines in /etc/network/interfaces about 'wlan0', it seems delays caused by both network interface and MTA are gone.

thanks!

it always stuck at two places by looking at onscreen boot log:
1.  configuration network interfaces..ifup: wait for lock on /run/network/ifstate.wlan0
2.  starting MTA

I started the wifi connection by issuing the following command once loggin into icewm WM,

install i386 .deb didn't work for me on the 64-bit ascii.

I ended up downloading the 'Driver Install Tool' available on the Brother website for this printer (hl-2270DW) and followed the instruction to run the script, it automatically pulls in the needed package and installs  the printer.

Driver install Tool is available here:

I'm assuming you've already tried using CUPs with the available drivers provided there?

In my case I use the driver for a slightly different Brother model: I have a DCP 9015CDW and use the DCP 9010CDW dirver which works fine, including duplex.

A cursory search finds there's a discussion of drivers to use for your model here: http://openprinting.org/printer/Brother … -HL-2270DW.

Strange enough, its seems a LILO problem to me.

From https://www.linux.org/threads/linux-lin … tup.10146/

L – First stage of the boot loader has finished and has been unable to load the second stage. This usually indicates bad BIOS parameters or bad sectors on the media or even a corruption of the boot loader. The letter is usually followed by an error code as follows:
07 – Invalid initialization – BIOS did not initialize the boot disk

thank you, this is very strange, did ascii corrupt my bootloader somehow?  i had 'pm-suspend'  feature working most of time on my thinkpad with devuan ascii, when it didn't work properly, i had to recycle power.  however this time it results a boot failure.

i ran built-in hdd diagnostic tool in Bios as well as 'badlocks' command from slackware, both reporting no error.

Ok, I see. First, I'd try setting sources.list back to Jessie and then run apt-get update and apt-get upgrade. If that goes well, I'd reboot and see how that goes.

Btw, it's a good idea to use code tags when posting config files. That makes it more readable.


The issue remains unresolved because the wifi is not working and system is in read-only mode after attempted ascii upgrade.

With that kind of error messages occuring, apt-get should refuse to perform any dist-upgrade, which it seemingly did in your case. So, unless you did not "try using -f" or anything else in that direction and also changed back your sources.list to Jessie and ran apt-get update after that, your system should  actually be fine. So, did you try any other commands to make the upgrade happen or forget to revert your apt sources to Jessie?

What does /etc/apt/sources.list look like on that system?


I can only boot into command line, and wifi isn't working.  the system is in read only mode and home directory isn't mounted.

hi, newbie here.

i've run into this error when i tried to upgrade from devuan jessice to ascii a couple months ago (March 24th):

after reboot the system, i can only log into command line, but my home directory is not mounted, wifi is not working.

my laptop is thinkpad t60 with wifi built in.

this seems to be some init messed up when ascii is still in testing, now that ASCII has been released.  is there a way to recover the system without reinstallation?
