isc-dhcp-client DU after 27 September 2011 may cause your hostname to fail.
If it fails.....your terminal will become
gordon@unknownstring and output of hostname will be unknownstring

THEN

Edit with root powers /etc/dhclient.conf, remove comments so the 2 lines near the top become the following format:
----------------------------------------
send host-name "sid.sid.com";
send dhcp-client-identifier <my-mac>;

---------------------------------
where my-mac is a copy of paste from your output for ifconfig for eth0

Reboot to test

good luck

This is not a bug but put here as it may help for those who do not read the aptosid forum

busybox has been updated 22 Oct 2011 and has a bug apparently

Instead of following the advice at aptosid forum....I deleted busybox.

Instead of busybox I use bash.

delete busybox and then do smxi.

today's reboot is good ...(so far)

YMMV

busybox is fixed now. I just held busybox and subscribed to the bug report. When I was notified it was fixed, I took busybox off of hold.

hi

not a smxi bug so move if wrong area but todays smxi I had errors for
debtags

I resolved for the moment by grabbing an older one from
ftp.iinet.net.au/linux/debian/debian/pool/main/d/debtags/

:: Code ::

dpkg -l | grep debtags
ii  debtags                                   1.7.11


should be 1.8

YMMV

I split this into a library upgrade issues thread, should be in the linux forums but I think it will do more good in the smxi ones.

So post any upgrade issues you find and want to share here if you are so inclined.

ok here is an idea if your upgrade causes your file manager to lose automount of removable media

if your system uses udisks

check to see if you still have this file

/etc/polkit-1/localauthority/50-local.d
contents

:: Quote ::

[Storage Permissions]
Identity=unix-group:plugdev
Action=org.freedesktop.udisks.filesystem-mount;org.freedesktop.udisks.drive-eject;org.freedesktop.udisks.drive-detach;org.freedesktop.udisks.luks-unlock;org.freedesktop.udisks.inhibit-polling;org.freedesktop.udisks.drive-set-spindown
ResultAny=yes
ResultActive=yes
ResultInactive=no


on another forum there is mention of removing some files before upgrading pcmanfm

if you did not see it....this might be the answer??

good luck

ok the next bit is only for weirdos like me heh heh

recently smxi reports that virtualbox and debian sid have issues with libssl so to use the wheezy edition of vbox

here is how I do it with no apt-pinning conf changes

cat of /etc/apt/sources.list.d/debian.list

:: Quote ::

#sid
deb mirror.internode.on.net/pub/debian sid main contrib non-free
#vbox
deb download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/debian wheezy contrib non-free
#bodhi
# deb packages.bodhilinux.com/bodhi lucid main


smxi does not like the format of this file but allows you to continue and upgrade as normal

the reason for the list is a priority using apt-pinning....no changes needed to the conf file

means.....if a file exists in both the sid area and the bodhi area....always grab the sid

and also means
as bodhi has debian squeeze vbox.....that I grab the vbox site's wheezy and not theirs

simple rule....if you are on the bottom of the list you don't get to play unless no other package exists
