NomadBSD 130R-20210508 Errata

pkg upgrade: e2fsprogs-nobootfsck-1.46.4_1 conflicts with e2fsprogs-1.46.2


The package sysutils/e2fsprogs now has the nobootfsck FLAVOR enabled (e2fsprogs-nobootfsck). This results in a conflict when trying to upgrade the locked sysutils/e2fsprogs package.


Unlock the package, and continue with the upgrade.

# pkg unlock -y e2fsprogs
# pkg upgrade

Package upgrade breaks autostart of applications


DSBAutostart creates desktop files for autostarting programs. The desktop files are read and executed by a script which is part of Openbox. This script uses the Python module devel/py-xdg/. Since lang/python/ and lang/python3/ now default to version 3.9 of Python, `py37-xdg` is no longer appropriate.


Install py39-xdg:

# pkg install devel/py-xdg

Python upgrade breaks dsbxinput, nomadbsd-chusr, and lbi-gui


Due to the upgrade of Python, the Qt5 python module packages changed from py37-qt5-* to py38-qt5-*. This breaks dsbxinput, nomadbsd-chusr, lbi-gui, and ipfwGUI.


Change the shebang of dsbxinput and nomadbsd-chusr:

# sed -i '' 's/python3.7/python3.8/' /usr/local/bin/dsbxinput
# sed -i '' 's/python3.7/python3.8/' /usr/local/bin/lbi-gui
# sed -i '' 's/python3.7/python3.8/' /usr/bin/nomadbsd-chusr
# sed -i '' 's/python3.7/python3.8/' /usr/local/bin/ipfwGUI

HDD/SSD installed NomadBSD doesn't start the GUI on systems which require nvidia-driver > 390


Due to the version upgrade from 440 to 460 of x11/nvidia-driver/, the NomadBSD installer fails to install nvidia-driver-440.


Install x11/nvidia-driver/ and make the modules load via /etc/rc.conf:

# pkg install x11/nvidia-driver
# sysrc kld_list+=" /boot/modules/nvidia-modeset.ko /boot/modules/nvidia.ko"
# sysrc initgfx_enable=NO

If the file /usr/local/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/00-video-initgfx.conf does not exist, or doesn't contain the line Driver "nvidia", create the file with the following content:

Section "Device"
    Identifier "NVIDIA CARD"
    VendorName "NVIDIA Corporation"
    Driver "nvidia"

After a reboot the GUI should start.
