Can you login in Fienix? What do you see after booting Fienix? A shell prompt?

@everyone: I pushed several updates to Fienix Soar. Updating from a Soar image should go smoothly and I think I tested everything adequately but let me know if you run into any issues.
I've been using Fienix almost exclusively everyday but didn't get around to the above until this afternoon. I interpreted that as "apt-get update," "apt-get upgrade," but maybe I was wrong. After the upgrade finished I rebooted, but some things didn't work, no internet was the worst issue. I clicked Restart and waited about a quarter of an hour while six stop-jobs ran. The first five were 1. Realtime Scheduling Policy Service, 2. session c2 for UID 1000, 3. Samba MMB Daemon, 4. Avahi mDNS/DNS-SD Stack, and 5. Hostname Service.
In just a few minutes four of those stopped, with the Avahi thing still going, and a stop job for Network Manager was added. A few minutes later Avahi stopped, but Network Manager hung on and on.
Finally that ended with a screen bottom full of lines like

Code: Select all

waiting for process nmbd, avahi-daemon, (ostnamed), Network Manager, interweb, (t-daemon), mateweather-app, avahi-daemon, mate-netspeed-a
Plenty of time to write that all down, but finally there were some KILL-SIGs (?) and finally it rebooted.
Now that it is up again (internet working this time) I see no difference. I had hoped the weather thing in the panel would work now, but it is the same as before, starting out "0°" and changing shortly to "--." No big deal; I can look out the window behind my monitor and get a good idea what the weather is like, but I thought that things was kind of "neat."

Hi kilaueabart,
"apt-get update" only updates the package listings, it doesn't actually update any packages. Please use "apt-get upgrade" or go into Synaptic and press the "Reload" button, then the "Mark All Upgrades" button, then press "Apply".
I checked on the status of the weather applet issue and the MATE DE team is still waiting on a server-side fix.

There is a new image and modified instructions at https://fienixppc.blogspot.com/p/u-boot.html. Please see if this works out for you.
