kvm "Guest has not initialized the display" yet

I has the problem with new VM for KVM.

just find good UEFI Variable file ( i just replace mine and that fix initial display problem)

So in all cases it's wrong option!

in my case it was 128kb  but in last compile from GIt was 512kb

Some notes:

zgrep CONFIG_EFI /proc/config.gz

wine 32 on 64 slack freetype touble

Missing freetype development files when try to compile wine 32 on 64 bit slack.

on my case:

less config.log

error in:

 configure:12631: freetype2 cflags: -I/usr/include/freetype2 -I/usr/include/libpng16 -I/usr/include/harfbuzz -I/usr/include/glib-2.0 -I/usr/lib64/glib-2.0/include

Error was missing function in zlib called from: libpng16

i just update zlib to last version and everything goes ok.

I use 64 bit slackware with multilib
so i upgrade with:

convertpkg-compat32 -i zlib-1.2.11-i586-1.txz
upgradepkg /tmp/zlib-compat32-1.2.11-x86_64-1compat32.txz

teamviewer 12 font buttons troubles

Team viewer use wine 32 bit

you just need to INSTALL ( not upgrade): libpng-1.4.12-i486-1.txz
or similar it contains libpng 12 and 14

install and delete script this lib's need ta stay just for teamviewer, if not remote /var/log/script/libpng-1.4.... next time when update system will delete them.

if you mistake and upgrade lib, just need to get previous version and upgrade whit him: libpng16 now

I use multi lib on 64 bit Slack so i: convertpkg-compat32 -i libpng-1.4.12-i486-1.txz
and install /tmp/libpng-compat32-1.4.12-x86_64-1compat32.txz

that's all

smart phone tablet mtp kde slackware

My phone is LG p880 i think this will work with any phone MTP device.

( i have problem with speed that other tools provide )

Slackware 14 Current

1. mtpfs - http://www.adebenham.com/mtpfs/
- may be this is not really needed but ...
- by default you must have libmtp installed
- and big number of mtp commands.

2. put file in: /etc/udev/rules.d/69-libmtp.rules from


file Look like:

# UDEV-style hotplug map for libmtp
# Put this file in /etc/udev/rules.d

ACTION!="add", GOTO="libmtp_rules_end"
ENV{MAJOR}!="?*", GOTO="libmtp_rules_end"
SUBSYSTEM=="usb", GOTO="libmtp_usb_rules"



# nVidia CM9-Adam
ATTR{idVendor}=="0955", ATTR{idProduct}=="70a9", SYMLINK+="libmtp-%k", MODE="660", GROUP="audio", ENV{ID_MTP_DEVICE}="1", ENV{ID_MEDIA_PLAYER}="1"
# Isabella Her Prototype
ATTR{idVendor}=="0b20", ATTR{idProduct}=="ddee", SYMLINK+="libmtp-%k", MODE="660", GROUP="audio", ENV{ID_MTP_DEVICE}="1", ENV{ID_MEDIA_PLAYER}="1"

# Autoprobe vendor-specific, communication and PTP devices
ENV{ID_MTP_DEVICE}!="1", ENV{MTP_NO_PROBE}!="1", ENV{COLOR_MEASUREMENT_DEVICE}!="1", ENV{libsane_matched}!="yes", ATTR{bDeviceClass}=="00|02|06|ef|ff", PROGRAM="mtp-probe /sys$env{DEVPATH} $attr{busnum} $attr{devnum}", RESULT=="1", SYMLINK+="libmtp-%k", MODE="660", GROUP="audio", ENV{ID_MTP_DEVICE}="1", ENV{ID_MEDIA_PLAYER}="1"


if not see you device in file add it manually.

3. restart UDEV daemon

D3Debug.txt - in Diablo 3 Installation Dir

Diablo 3 Slow Log Out,
 Auction House disconnect after couple operations,
 Can't do multiple login logout,
 can't create another game without restart,
 can't change Hero without restart game: 

if you have second IP on Inet Interface try removing it and down other interfaces
 See if problem persist?
 In my case i have local IP on Internet interface and D3 is somehow use it so it cause trouble but not every time so it is difficult to find it.

I Hope it helps.
