Real funny, qt-4.8 from usm tried to pull so much dependencies. When I download it from pkgs.org and txz2xzm, it turns to be the only dependency needed for smplayer. :roll:
francois, smplayer can be built with qt5 as well. Were you using kde5?

3.2.2 migration to 4.0 problem.

The wrong files are located at /usr/share/GConf/gsettings in 003-cinnamon. These files are read at activation time by /usr/bin/glib-compile-schemas to build caches at /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas, resulting in wrong caches that lead to the black screen at start. Not sure I follow. Could you please e...

Interesting fix ... not so sure it is the right way to do it though. Is this an upstream bug in gnome-keyring?
Gnome Keyring Daemon was not able to allocate secure memory. So CAP_IPC_LOCK capability was set on the binary.

3.2.2 migration to 4.0 problem.

brokenman , gnome-keyring-daemon is started in xdg autostart. In rc.4, I am just setting capabilities on the binary itself, I think to supress some warnings. Maybe there is another place this can be set. This has to be done as root. Ed_P , ok, other than that rc.4 should be same as that of 3.2.2. r...

3.2.2 migration to 4.0 problem.

Bypasses calling of /etc/rc.d/rc.4 2. Gives some time for something in base to stabilize before X and the DE (...

3.2.2 migration to 4.0 problem.

Ed_P, could you try booting with your 3.2.2 changes into text mode (cheatcode 3).
Then, either login as root and then run slim
Or, login as guest and then run startx
Please check if any of the above works with your changes.
