15.0 Sound problem

Linux Questions - Tue, 03/22/2022 - 09:13
I went from Current of 11/21 to 15.0 recently. Update was to my ssd and went very well, except I lost sound.I have a RazPi 4 with 4G. I did it with upgradepkg, which kept the config.

I also have a working ~current on an sdcard, and compared Pavucontrol menus playing videos. I get audio on the level meter, but no sound. Comparing:
Code:                   Working                    15.0
  • Playback      System Sounds              System Sounds

  • Recording    Nothing                    Nothing

  • Output        Analog bcm2835HDMI          Dummy Output
                  Headphones bcm2835          No earphones

  • Input        Nothing                    Nothing

  • Config        HDMI_1 & Headphones 2835    Entirely greyed out

I'm at a loss. I remade the initrd with /sbin/mkinitrd because I made the first one in a chroot, and things like /sys aren't there. I was careful to use '-m ext4:bcm2835:bcma' but only bcma was added. Any ideas for me?

EDIT: I should mention I grabbed kernel 5.16.16 packages from current for the update, because there are are a few recently patched security bugs. I'm not using uBoot.

Installation of texlive from iso

Linux Questions - Tue, 03/22/2022 - 06:46
Hello.

Since the texlive package provided by a full installation of slackware64 15.0 is not complete, I removed it.

I downloaded the .iso install from tug.org and the installation was successful. Except for one little thing.

One of the last things to do is to add this:

Code: MANPATH=/usr/local/texlive/2021/texmf-dist/doc/man:$MANPATH; export MANPATH
INFOPATH=/usr/local/texlive/2021/texmf-dist/doc/info:$INFOPATH; export INFOPATH
PATH=/usr/local/texlive/2021/bin/x86_64-linux:$PATH; export PATH and I want this to be system-wide. I added these 3 lines to the end of /etc/profile

When I open a terminal with a regular user, everything is fine, i.e., all latex files (executables, formats, etc) are found:

Code: $ which latex
/usr/local/texlive/2021/bin/x86_64-linux/latex Also,
Code: $ su -
# which latex
/usr/local/texlive/2021/bin/x86_64-linux/latex BUT
Code: $ su
# which latex
which: no latex in (/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/sbin:/usr/sbin:/bin:/usr/bin) Why "su -" finds the correct path and "su" not? Is /etc/profile the correct place to add those 3 lines?

Kind regards

KWallet not finding my encryption keys

Linux Questions - Tue, 03/22/2022 - 06:15
I have just logged in on the KDE DE on a newly installed Slackware-15.0

On connecting to my WiFI, I get prompted to enter my password on KDE Wallet.

On selecting GPG encryption, as recommended, I get notified that I need at least one encryption key.

I run KGpg, and I setup an encryption key, but KDE Wallet keeps insisting that I need at least one encryption key.

Up to now I have resisted trying Blowfish, so I haven't tried it yet.

Is this normal, or am I missing something?

unstable wifi conection after base arch install

Linux Questions - Tue, 03/22/2022 - 04:09
Hi, I finished the base install of arch by connecting to the internet through iwctl, but when connecting with NetworkManager after reboot the connection is very unstable. when trying to install a desktop environment the connection speed drops to a few kbits per second and the proccess times out. I have selected the fastest mirrors with reflector. Also, i tried downloading an iso with wget and the same thing happens. I have installed arch on this laptop many times before and never had the problem. I noticed that for the latest iso the arch wiki has removed the /etc/hosts section so have tried the installation with and without creating this file but no change. My wifi card is a qualcom AR9462 and the loaded driver is ath9k so i don't think its a driver problem. I have also disabled NetworkManager and installed iwd, the connection through iwctl also becomes very slow.I have debian and manjaro installed on the same laptop and both work fine. After googling around i've not come across anthing helpful. What can i do next to diagnose this problem? Many thanks
