  • Systemd fails to mount swap partition on a gpt disk
    GiuX on Wed, 29 Oct 2014 19:49:58 +0000

    Hi at all,
    I've noticed that during the boot log appears a strange error related with systemd:

    Failed to activate swap /dev/disk/by-uuid/1981ea4b-3c92-4768-bc1f-3f612e5e0d4f.
    See 'systemctl status dev-disk-by\x2duuid-1981ea4b\x2d3c92\x2d4768\x2dbc1f\x2d3f612e5e0d4f.swap' for details.
    Dependency failed for Swap

    arounding on google it seems to involve the systemd management of gpt partition (I've installed OMA on UEFI mode... ), how can I resolve this problem?

  • Chromium stable could not initiate chromium session
    MacLone on Tue, 21 Oct 2014 20:26:11 +0000

    I have been testing Chromium-stable version after version on openmandriva and always has had the same problem: could not initiate chormium session (session unavailable; try later) This is the only distro i use with this kind of bug. Google chrome works fine but i don't want to use chrome. How this bug hast lasted for so long? openmandriva users use firefox only? There is not a single post about this in the forums and i'm sure is not a problem with my computers or internet. Any aidea?
