Borked gnome-shell

Postby xerxes2 » Jul 18th, '18, 16:06

I've been running Cauldron for a few months now without major problems. Just updating the system with dnf a few times a week worked just fine until today. Now gnome-shell will not start with error:
JS ERROR: TypeError: can't redefine non-configurable property "window"

This must have something to do with gnome-shell upgrading!

Can you try updating again; it may be something missing that did not get to mirror on time, that something else need.
You do have alternate DM and DE installed?

Still same error with gnome-shell! No I don't have another desktop installed. Do you got a small one? Also the kernel just updated and radeon-firmware got removed in the process. Had to reinstall that one manually again.

Looking at http://pkgsubmit.mageia.org/, a new version of GNOME shell is coming, but it's currently failing to build.

Still same error with gnome-shell. Installed fluxbox and using that while waiting for gnome-shell to work again.
