Can't Exaile after Update

I just installed a big update for 10.3, and now Exaile won't open. Has anyone else seen this behaviour? Audacious works, so it's not hardware.

Re: Newbie Fouled Up System with 10.4 Upgrade [SOLVED]

ASX: I really appreciate your patience with me on this situation. I ran zpool scrup tank through to its conclusion, but it found no errors. I found this entry on a search: http://www.freebsdonline.com/content/view/662/528/ "If you get on FreeBSD the following error: pam_chauthtok(): error in service...

Re: Newbie Fouled Up System with 10.4 Upgrade [SOLVED]

ASX: I ran zpool scrub tank which went quickly, but did not fix anything. I still got the same error message for passwd, and although the boot process runs perfectly normally through the nVidia load screen and into slim, I still get a black screen after logging in either as root or username. When I ...

Re: Newbie Fouled Up System with 10.4 Upgrade [SOLVED]

ASX: my spelling on the disk slice id was only in my post; it was correct on my system. When I repeated the fsck attempt, I got the same result. I ran: gpart show -p which told me that the filesystem on ada0p2 (there is no line through the zero, but it is a zero; I was careful about that) is clearly...

Re: Newbie Fouled Up System with 10.4 Upgrade [SOLVED]

ASX: thank you. I will double check my spelling on the disk ID. I was not clear on this, but yes, i did run freebsd-update install.

Re: Newbie Fouled Up System with 10.4 Upgrade [SOLVED]

Newbie Fouled Up System with 10.4 Upgrade [SOLVED]

This is not a panic, since I have a very nice 11.1 system running on another disk, which is what I'm sending this from. But reading about 10.4 made me curious, so I looked up upgrading Ghost 10.3 to 10.4 in "the usual way". After some investigation, I ran: freebsd-update -r 10.4-RELEASE upgrade and ...

Re: Latest Updates Bring MATE 1.8 to Ghost 10.3

Kraileth: you are correct, it's 1.12 to 1.18.. :oops: I'm puzzled, but will accept the possibility that I hadn't updated 10.3 since October 1. In any case, it's a huge and much appreciated update, and my congratulations to the team on successfully putting this together. A 1 GB upgrade that runs that...

Latest Updates Bring MATE 1.8 to Ghost 10.3

My 10.3 update this afternoon was huge (> 1GB!), but upgraded MATE from 1.2 to 1.8, and that's welcome. Just an fyi, and thanks to the team. :D

Re: Suspend/resume

On my 11.1 system, "suspend" will suspend, but not reawaken; I have to force the hardware to shut down and then reboot. I've had difficulty with acpi-related functions in the past with both BSD and Linux, and did some fair research. My conclusion was that anything acpi-related depends strongly on th...
