Despite everything i've tried i always end up getting thia error when trying to compile Android on Void Linux.
I've switched to openjdk1.7.0-u80, i've installed about every package that remotely sounded like anything needed for ubuntu and arch.
I copied over ld.gold from ubuntu to symlink to ld in android's source (workaround on Arch)
Still, it always fails with that exact error, i'm running out of ideas what to do.. i really don't want to install another distro solely for the purpose of compiling (again).

error: http://pastebin.com/vBTcPkn1

I hope i'm just missing a package there, but tbh i don't know, as nobody else seems to have encountered that exact error.

unfortunately the error still persists after a successfull repo sync.

VoidLinux is useless as a Live system since you can't install new packages with a certain volume (eg gcc) since there is not enough space (although 8 GB RAM available). Is there any cheatcode such as 'cow_spacesize= 8GB'?

I am having problems installing Topmenu in my Mate 1.8 desktop. I am following the compilation instructions described in the site. The applet compiles and installs correctly, but it doesn't appear in my Applet list (that one wich appears when you click "Add to panel"). I tried to load the compiled module by many ways (.gtkrc-2.0, --gtk-module option, GTK_MODULES environment var), but it seems that the module is not loaded, or if it is, it still doesn't appear to me to add to the panel. Somebody can help?
Screenshots. Requirements and compatibility. Currently, TopMenu ships as a panel applet for either Mate 1.8 or Xfce >= 4.8 (Gtk+2 versions only). The Mate applet would be relatively easy to port to Gnome 2. Gtk+2 is the preferred toolkit, albeit Gtk+3 is partially supported.

As I said on IRC, you need to enable the conman service to use the wifi gui in enlightenment. https://github.com/voidlinux/documentation/wiki/Network-Configuration#desktop-network-daemons-networkmanager-wicd-and-connman

Sorry, will do that.
NFS is working from time to time but sometimes not. After rebooting NFS works again.

Hello, I stand before the cuminidad

Forgive my English.

I installed GNOME 3.18 void and have two errors.

1. I can not shut down or restart from gnome.
2. I get this error has login "Can not publish discovery information on the network."

Another issue is s not use systemd using this distribution?


En mí idioma ya que he escuchado que es española.


He instalado void con gnome 3.18 y tengo dos errores.

2. Recibo este error ha iniciar sessión "Can't publish discovery information on the network."

Otra cuestion es sy no usa systemd que usa esta distribución?

i've wanted to update my system today and got this:

chromium-48.0.2564.116_1: broken, unresolvable shlib 'libwebp.so.5'
chromium-48.0.2564.116_1: broken, unresolvable shlib 'libwebpdemux.so.1'

also affected: webkitgtk2, gimp, wxWidgets, playonlinux, wxPython, webkit2gtk & webkit2gtk2

I proceeded to deinstall the affected packages and some of their dependencies (shown above) and reinstalled libwebp-0.5.0_1 but it didn't solve the error.
I also updated the rest of the system, once this error didn't show up, rebooted and tried reinstalling, didn't work either.

What i am doing wrong?

Another good news is that Gottox merged a new feature into xbps-rindex that checks for dependency consistency before updating the repository index.

I don't know how well this Q and A works in here, BUT. I just installed DWM and I alreay have i3 installed. to run DWM with customizations. it interfears with i3. When I select ro run i3 from the login screen DWM still starts up, I have added a sh/script to prevent dwm from exiting MOD+Shift+q instead it checks for updated dwm exc. if no then exit.

if I do exit out of dwm then go into i3, dwm still starts up on top of i3. meaning when I MOD+Shift+q a few times it finally shuts dwm down leaving me in i3 but i3 will not respond properly

this is the script,

#!/bin/sh
 
# relaunch DWM if the binary changes, otherwise bail
csum=$(sha1sum $(which dwm))
new_csum=""
while true
do
    if [ "$csum" != "$new_csum" ]
    then
        csum=$new_csum
        dwm
    else
        exit 0
    fi
    new_csum=$(sha1sum $(which dwm))
    sleep 0.5
done
 
it is directed to look into my bin dir from .xprofile to run the script.
I have no idea what to do to kill the WM completely when exiting

Before I run into this, is Wine staging available? Or should I compile it manually? I'm not against compiling it, but I've learned from other distros that the package managers should know about as many other packages as possible.

Hey. I just installed void in my old laptop, and tried to installed GNOME. Installed xorg, GNOME and gdm packages, and enabled both dbus and gdm services. When my system starts and it tries go start gdm, the screen starts to flicker, intercalating between tty and a black screen. After some minutes it stops and fallback to tty. I already tried forcing X instead of Wayland in /etc/gdm/custom.conf, but it didn't solve the problem. Anyone knows what I should do?

For node-0.12 use tools like nvm or n:

After updating, iwifi module takes approximately 2 minutes to load appropriate firmware.

dmesg spits out garbage about unable to load firmware and failing with error -2 and then goes on to loading a user helper.

The cause is a firmware mismatch between what it's looking for (iwlwifi-7265D-15.ucode) and what's available (most recent I see in /lib/firmware is -13).

My solution was to copy iwlwifi-7265D-13.ucode to iwlwifi-7265D-15.ucode Wifi comes up instantly on boot after that.

Apparently, you can also enable CONFIG_FW_LOADER_USER_HELPER_FALLBACK in the kernel to remove the delay to load an older firmware. I didn't use this solution so I can't verify that it works.

Does the wifi-firmware package need to be updated?

Edit:

http://www.intel.com/support/wireless/wlan/sb/CS-034398.htm

Looks like there's updated firmware for kernel 4.2+

Glad to read its working again, cheers.

Muscl doesn't want to work, and configure can't cross compile.

Not sure if there is something better than nocross=yes for the second issue.... not sure what to do about the first other than an "only_for_arches"

Any ideas appreciated.
