[SOLVED] Huge upgrade this morning ...

Hello:

Asked apt to update early today:

~$ sudo apt update
Hit:1 http://deb.devuan.org/merged daedalus InRelease
Hit:2 http://deb.devuan.org/merged daedalus-updates InRelease
Hit:3 http://deb.devuan.org/merged daedalus-security InRelease
Reading package lists... Done                     
Building dependency tree... Done
Reading state information... Done
89 packages can be upgraded. Run 'apt list --upgradable' to see them.
~$ 

89 packages seemed rather a large number so I checked my /etc/apt/sources.list and asked again, with the same result.

--- snip ---
89 upgraded, 3 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
Need to get 236 MB of archives.
After this operation, 470 MB of additional disk space will be used.
Do you want to continue? [Y/n] 

The three new packages are linux-headers-6.1.0-22-amd64, linux-headers-6.1.0-22-common and linux-image-6.1.0-22-amd64.

Watching the printout as it rolled on, I noticed multiple lines which started with a W:

--- snip ---
update-initramfs: Generating /boot/initrd.img-6.1.0-22-amd64
W: Possible missing firmware /lib/firmware/nvidia/gp100/acr/ucode_load.bin for module nouveau
W: Possible missing firmware /lib/firmware/nvidia/gp100/acr/bl.bin for module nouveau
--- snip ---
W: Possible missing firmware /lib/firmware/nvidia/tu102/sec2/image.bin for module nouveau
W: Possible missing firmware /lib/firmware/nvidia/tu102/sec2/desc.bin for module nouveau
--- snip ---

It was a very long list of Possible missing firmware entries which I have shortened for clarity.
Everything else went on as expected and sudo apt install -f had nothing to say.

Anyone else see this?
Have not rebooted yet so I cannot say if there are any ill effects.
I will check the logs report later.

Thanks in advance.

Best,

A.

Hello:

I wrote:

Twor things stand out in /var/log/boot.

This:

08:47:20 2024: Starting slim: slimUnknown option name: input_fgcolor

The solution for Unknown option name: input_fgcolor is here*.
* still have to try it out and check.

and this:

--- snip ---

--- snip ---

The printout seems to be accurate:

~$ ls /usr/share/alsa
alsa.conf  alsa.conf.d  cards  ctl  init  pcm  utils.sh
~$ 

ie: no ucm2 directory.

But I found a package for that, for whatever reason it was not installed when I upgraded from Beowulf via Chimaera to Daedalus:

~$ apt list | grep -i alsa-ucm
alsa-ucm-conf/stable,stable 1.2.8-1 all
~$

I will install the package and report later / tomorrow.
Hopefully that will be it.

Best,

A.

Re: [SOLVED] Huge upgrade this morning ...

Hello:

Ron wrote:

How long has it been ...

At least once a week.
But everything seems to be working properly now.

The slim and ALSA lines in /var/log/boot are gone with the fixes previously posted.

The last one I just found is this one:

--- snip ---
09:54:58 2024: /sbin/dhclient-script: 88: cannot create /etc/resolv.conf: Directory nonexistent
--- snip ---

But ...

~$ cat /etc/resolv.conf
# Generated by Connection Manager
search Home 
nameserver 192.168.1.11
~$ 

... is correct.
192.168.1.11 is the address of a Chimaera VM hosted in my box and running a Pi-hole+unbound recursive DNS.

Using MC to check the file I see it is @resolv.conf with this content:

# Generated by Connection Manager
search Home
nameserver 192.168.1.11

So I guess that everything is as it should be.
ie: no apparent issues.

Thanks for your input.

Best,

A.

Re: [SOLVED] Huge upgrade this morning ...

Hello:

I wrote:

Indeed ...

But if I do:

~$ sudo update-initramfs -u

I get the same warnings I made reference to in my OP:

--- snip ---
update-initramfs: Generating /boot/initrd.img-6.1.0-22-amd64
W: Possible missing firmware /lib/firmware/nvidia/gp100/acr/ucode_load.bin for module nouveau
W: Possible missing firmware /lib/firmware/nvidia/gp100/acr/bl.bin for module nouveau
--- snip ---

The printout makes reference to a total of 297 *.bin files (Nvidia firmware files) which the system says are posibly missing.
And they are: there is no /lib/firmware/nvidia directory in my system.

~$ ls /lib/firmware/nvidia
ls: cannot access '/lib/firmware/nvidia': No such file or directory
~$ 

And then...
Why should there be?
I use the nouveau driver.

This is most probably (?) something left over from when the system was running Beowulf and did use Nvidia drivers/firmware.
Something which did not get cleaned up as I upgraded first to Chimaera and then to Daedalus.   

-----------------
Edit:
Maybe not ...

The printout does say ... for module nouveau.
Which would mean that it is the nouveau driver that is asking for them.
-----------------

Maybe there is a package missing / not installed?

How to fix this?
*What* is looking for Nvidia firmware?

Thanks in advance,

Best,

A.

Re: [SOLVED] Huge upgrade this morning ...

Hi, if you have progessively upgraded from beowulf to Daedalus you may have dead links in your file system.

2 programs I have used are, ldconfig and symlinks.

The warning may be just noise, but cleaning up old links may remove them.

check out ...

symlinks --help (is a stand-alone package)
ldconfig --help (is installed with libc-bin package)

I use these quite often, but have a look first to be sure, to be sure.

symlinks -csrv /

ldconfig -Cfpv

I hope this helps get rid of the noise so you can see other messages clearer.

Re: [SOLVED] Huge upgrade this morning ...

Speaking of huge upgrade, I can't seem to get my mouse working with the most recent upgrades... again.

https://upload.disroot.org/r/54sJQDA0#J … IkqA1GsIs=

This is the packages I updated.  Once I do this, I poweroff computer and reboot and wireless mouse no longer works.

Re: [SOLVED] Huge upgrade this morning ...

My BT mouse still works.... it's a wifi card based BT chip, not usb dongle.

Re: [SOLVED] Huge upgrade this morning ...

@GlennW mine is a usb dongle though. I have a Logitech M510 and also one other one as well, both don't work after I do the latest updates.

Its kind of annoying, because I don't know how to downgrade the packages needed to fix my problem.

... but none of them look like they are nouveau related.
I will have a closer look next week and decide what to nuke.

With respect to the missing firmware, it seems to be some (unattended) Debian bug or regression.

In any case, none of those files is related to my Nvidia Quadro FX580 (G96) cards which used the legacy 340.108 driver, so everything works.
The missing firmware is probably for newer hardware.

Still, although a Warning and not an Error, it should not be happening.
Fixed upstream? Not clear.

BTW: my wireless Logitech Ergo M575 works as before the upgrade.

Thanks for your input.

Best,

A.

Re: [SOLVED] Huge upgrade this morning ...

@Altoid yeah... I wonder which of those packages it is. Very strange...

I updated more of them and I see that they still work,  but I will have to give you more details probably.

EDIT:

Refer to this link:

https://dev1galaxy.org/viewtopic.php?id=6700

Same topic I am mentioning, but yeah.

Weird stuff.

Re: [SOLVED] Huge upgrade this morning ...

I started seeing errors about missing nvidia firmware recently as well. It's confusing, because the nouveau driver didn't report this error in the past, but the official site says nouveau has always required the nvidia firmware.

Fortunately, it is relatively easy to extract and install the nvidia firmware yourself. The whole issue is explained here, in the Firmware section: https://nouveau.freedesktop.org/VideoAcceleration.html
