Installing zlib1g:i386 on Lubuntu 22.04.1 Liveboot Crashes

Hi, everybody.

When running Lubuntu 22.04.1 LTS off of a Liveboot disk (IE: USB MicroSD Card reader), the system breaks and loses the desktop when installing zlib1:i386.

For a certain project, I need to install a variety of i386 libraries to get a 32-bit game running on Linux. Ubuntu full is a bit bloated for my needs, and will overload the CPU for my tasks. (Streaming.)

I’m providing two sets of expandable contents: the first set is the commands I ran from the command line, ending with the installation of zlib1:i386. The second set is my syslog output at that time, after the last command.

I ideally would like to have everything run from the liveboot, and losing the GUI would be OK if its temporary.

However, I can re-access the desktop at rare occasions. when rebooting the OS, it says zlib1:i386 is installed properly. Once I’ve begun installing other i386 libraries, Lubuntu will eventually break again, though, starting with “failed to start THermal Daemon Service.” (It will then say “failed ot start Regular backround program processing daemon.” and “failed to send WATCHDOG=1 notification message: Transport endpoint is not connected.”)

Eventually, if I leave the computer alone, the screensaver will somehow reappear, and I may eventually be able to access the window session. I don’t think this occurs after the first crash.

Code to reproduce

#Have Wifi or Ethernet connection to net, and…
sudo apt-get update
sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install -y gcc-12-base:i386
sudo apt-get install -y krb5-locales
sudo apt-get install -y libc6:i386
sudo apt-get install -y zlib1g:i386

System crashes here

And here is some log from my syslog at that point, starting right before the crash time (16:00)

Thank you for your help and a lightweight distro of Ubuntu Linux, Lubuntu.me. Thank you, Lubuntu.me forums for help.

Hi there,

Can a mod edit the topic and my original post to say I meant
“zlib1g:i386” ?

I need the g in both my post instructions and title. Oops. Feel free to delete this post or edit it with a summary if you can. Thank you.

Update:
When trying to run the above commands (again), I found that even installing libc6:i386 would cause an issue with the system.

The apt-get installer for that line had completed all the ‘setting up’ steps, and had one line of “Processing triggers” before erroring on timeout. The wifi connection drops, and now I see the windows desktop crashing.

I’ll try to provide a syslog later. I’m concerned that this is going to be an issue with SD Card readers that can heat up, versus USB sticks that may not suffer this problem, or even external SD drives.

Thank you.

Hi everybody. Same issues on USB stick.

I think this has to be a liveboot problem. Can somebody reproduce this on an installed instance of Lubuntu? I might have a machine I can try this on tomorrow or a day in the future.

Coincidentially, here are other packages I need that crash Lubuntu, from the whole list I need:

libopenal1:i386
And funny enough, that’s all I could find that would also crash the window system. The screensaver would come back on and the devices would work after the first crash, but the second crash would cause an issue. (I think this is specifically for libopenal1:i386. I could let the screensaver get me back to the window manager for both, but devices were really done-zo after libopenal1:i386. )

Thanks for the help, mods ,btw. ^u^ I hope to hear from anybody with this problem soon. Until then, I think I can live with managing to install almost everything and then doing these package installs at the last minute, then trying to get by on a reboot. It’s just not a very professional install script when it breaks the system you’re installing on… X3

“I think this has to be a liveboot problem…”

You might have hit the nail on the head.

When you boot a live iso, the only writeable area it uses is the ramdrive it creates for the root file system (usually half of your ram).

When you do an install, it creates new files. If your ramdrive runs out of space, all sorts of mayhem occur. I think it’s lucky you managed to recover.

libc6:i386 adds a lot of stuff and even forces upgrades of other stuff. The new files go into ram. The old files are still in read-only storage.

Perhaps it’s better to use a ‘persistent’ iso instead. You’ll find many tutorials like this if you do a search.

Thank you for your advice, Humpty!

I want to let you know that I’m running this off a Rufus disk with persistent storage; I can install almost everything in that list, and only when zlib1g:i386 gets installed will it have an issue.

I haven’t gotten to try to do this on a fresh install to a drive, but maybe I’ll try that in the next 24 hours. :slight_smile:

(Sorry I wasn’t clear that zlib1g:i386 alone from my list of i386 software will crash as long as all of its dependencies get installed beforehand. I might try rebooting the liveboot beforehand, too, to see if zlib1g:i386 on a clean liveboot restart will still experience this. :slight_smile:

Hey, everybody.

I think I’m done updating this post because of the following.

  1. I installed Lubuntu on a primary disk, rebooted before the installation of zlib1g:i386 (which I just noticed, installs zlib1g as well). It still worked.
  2. I am experiencing this crash at other times, as well, on live boot. I combined the apt-get of the two previous steps ( apt-get install -y krb5-locales libc6:i386 ) and libc6:i386 also caused the crash to the display (on a separate computer using the same drive.)
  3. I’m getting similar “transport endpoint is not connected” errors in the log that’s displayed (As well as “failed to start Regular background program processing daemon.”)

I don’t know how to prevent this problem from happening on Liveboot. I don’t know if I need to do the “sleep” command to give the drive a bit of cooldown time, I haven’t tested the liveboot problem across system reboots in the middle of the above instructions, etc.

I’ll update as I can. Thanks everybody. [And thank you @aug7744 since I heard other Linux customizers died out. I want a loading script, though, for use on many/other OSes]
