    fungalnet – My sid install(s) are not broken, unlike yours because I READ the output of apt-get dist-upgrade before hitting Y. You didn’t and you now see the mess.

    When policykit-1 got upgraded by Debian, I saw in the terminal that it would remove lots of stuff, so guess what I did? I said No.
    Within 24 hours, I had built and uploaded a nosystemd version to the repos. By the time that appeared, Debian had released another policykit-1 upgrade.
    Within 24 hours, antiX had a nosystemd version of that in the repos. This time, my apt-get dist-upgrade showed that nothing would be removed, so I pressed the Y button.

    I have no idea if lxde components have systemd infection. If it has, then point me to the problem and I’ll see if I can build nosystemd versions (like I do for some parts of MATE).

    The ‘lesson to learn’ IMHO is that anyone who wants to use sid should ALWAYS use dist-upgrade in a terminal and READ the output before deciding to press Y or N.

    I always use the terminal, just this time I logged in as root on console to do something before I go to desktop. It was my mistake as in console I can barely read things with a magnifying glass, so I typed y to a gray blur. My mistake. My mistake was also not putting it all here and doing it on a pm and you pretending like you never heard it before.
    When you had said wait, a fix was coming, and an other fix was recoming, in the meantime I tried to go back to cache and revert some of what was new. If you remember I had also told you at some point that the antix repository was unreachable. While reverting something with dpkg from cache some consolekit related dependency found this experimental consolekit and dragged its associate libck-connector0.

    Now I haven’t checked how the repository priority is set in antix, remember I am relatively new to antix, but I was under the impression that anything antix would supersede anything from other repositories even if they have a higher version number. So I am not clear why would something foreign crawl in and replace something antix, unless it was explicitly told to do so, which didn’t happen, or if the antix consolekit wasn’t there. Neither did I know that debian had decided to make consolekit history.
    I was under the assumption that doing apt upgrade instead of apt-get dist-upgrade is dangerous with more than one source open. So I have not been doing this.

    Now, on your decision of y/n on dist-upgrade, this is sid we are talking about. They always wipe stuff off and try something else, and the next day they bring back what the wiped off the day before. It is the nature of the beast.

    SORRY we are not all developers working on debian pkgs to decide by looks that something is wrong and say this doesn’t look right. Yeah, it looked weird to me to have to remove xinit, if it was there why would it be unnecessary now? But I trusted dist-upgrade and did remove it, and everything is ok. Can I explain why? No, I’ve given up.

    Because I haven’t had a problem with sid and I have been running it on this desktop since 2012. There is no oil and no fire from me.
    In the pms I told you not to upgrade until a nosystemd version of policykit-1 was in the repos, but you had already upgraded and tried to fix your install by breaking it more. I then told you again to wait again the second nosystemd policykit-1 debs arrive as it might fix it, but the damage had already been done by your ‘fixes’ eg installing from experimental.

    If you really do not understand sid, then, simply put, don’t use it.
    If you are ‘happy’ to learn even if it breaks your install, fine – just don’t blame anyone but yourself if it does break.
    As Debian says ‘if it breaks you get to pick up the pieces’

    You and skidoo can sort out your disagreement among yourselves, or ignore each other – I don’t care. I’m not a policeman.

    That is what I said above too, but lxsession depends on consolekit. I didn’t check then and took it for granted that it was deprecated in sid, but it exists in sid, or now it does, it is buster that doesn’t seem to have consolekit.
    https://packages.debian.org/sid/consolekit
    https://packages.debian.org/sid/lxsession

    and there comes that ck-connector link as well.

    Now here is some arch by comparison

    Although it would takr a little more research than I can do now, I have a feeling this is all related to vanishing gksu (from buster) they have an earlier version on sid than in stretch, and they are trying to get pkexec to work through alternative dependencies so they can penetrate LXDE eventually as well, and practically any desktop.
    Watch for more fastballs of libpolkit in experimental.

    OK, hardcore linux types will not use synaptic even for browsing through pkgs, but how many don’t use gparted. Sudo gparted works but that is not what is on the menu, it is gparted.pkexec … yes you can do all that gparted does with terminal commands fdisk … but let’s be serious, we all use it.

    re-install – it seems you broke it beyond repair. All we can do is guess fixes.

    I just converted a siduction-lxde installation to antix and antix 4.18 kernel, everything went well.
    Only problem I’ve had is gksu is not installable. Is this a problem you are aware of? I think it is a gksu library version conflict.

    Sorry I get the same error on both, my mistake for trying gsku instead of gksu 🙂
