After updating the Gnome boxes, the crashes are constant

Olá Pessoal

After updating the Gnome 42 boxes application on EndeavorOS on today’s date, the crashes started inside and outside the environment. It is only possible to return to the system by turning off the desktop by the button.

Is this a problem with gnome-boxes or gnome-system-monitor?

You could launch them in a terminal and see if you get some error messages.

Also, in order for the forum members who are able to help to have some idea please read the following
article and provide some system info and logs.

Thank you and good luck!

Yes, it’s a problem with gnome-boxes.
Monitor was open to see why the high memory consumption.

Here is the requested log:

Crashes occur when using any of the created vms. Everything hangs, both when opening when we can open, and when closing the vms.

Note: This did not happen before the update:

Follow the system log.

Need something else?

What is the output of:

systemctl status  virtqemud.socket virtqemud-ro.socket  virtqemud-admin.socket

?

It’s this:

Try enabling and starting them and see if that will resolve the issue:

sudo systemctl enable --now  virtqemud.socket virtqemud-ro.socket  virtqemud-admin.socket

If this log can help me in something I would appreciate it in advance.

The result was the one below and I will check later if the crashes have stopped

Crashes still occur at some point. @pebcak

I remember that:
When updating gnome-boxes, there was a conflict of qmeu or qemu, I don’t remember for sure, because it was a list and asked to replace and I clicked yes to update gnome-boxes, where I had to confirm. I think that could have been the problem too.

When you force the exit, it does not exit at all. Only by turning off the desktop by the power off button.

See the screenshots of screen crashes that still occur:

No best idea that ask trouble . if computer become un responsive ( stuck ) this better option

EDit… Probably most useful post on forum. imo

The keyboard also freezes, making it impossible to use the aforementioned keys.

Yes the package qemu has been replaced by qemu-desktop. See this thread:

https://forum.endeavouros.com/t/qemu-qemu-desktop-looks-like-quite-a-big-change/26850/9

I am not experiencing this issue. Let’s see if other gnome-box users would chime in with their experience.

In the meantime you could still try this:

Open two terminal windows. In one, run journalctl -f. In the other, launch gnome-boxes and start using your VMs. Observe any error messages.

Also run sudo dmesg and look for anything related to gnome-boxes, qemu, libvirtd, etc.

Might not hurt to run a filesystem check as well. Launch your EnOS’ installer usb and run a check on your system partition.

Fully up to date, using qemu-desktop now (update that replaced qemu), running Gnome 42.1 and Boxes still works on my end, so it must be a very specific issue here not related to all Gnome users unfortunately.

No it doesn’t. As long as the kernel is loaded in the memory, Magic SysRq key will work.

Have you enabled the Magic SysRq key? It won’t work if it is not enabled…

Yes, same here. Not experiencing any issues after the update.
Could be any number of system and configuration specific things.

It could be a file system problem. Although the virtqemud error does not appear in the later posted journal log. I wonder why. Is it not the same boot?

Anyway, looking into the pacman log might provide more info about what exactly happened with package upgrade.
I couldn’t see anything too obvious in the journal log.

Unless we see some clearly relevant log message, we are just speculating, which is… fun BTW :smile:

Seems to have a bit of trouble with metapackages anyway.

From Reddit:

 Looks like there are a few issues with the new meta packages.

`qemu-desktop` for example has several packages in its `depends` field that are also included in its `optdepends` field.

Reddit

Edit 10.5.2022
More information was received on this. Apparently done on purpose.

That is actually on purpose, as there would otherwise be no place to list all available qemu components. That’s why all qemu providers share the same optdepends (even if they require some or most of them), as it allows you to do pacman -Qi qemu to show the reference of what is currently installed on a system.

Not what I could see (only glancing through :wink:) or am I looking at wrong place?
