Silver prompt hangs bash when starting (pinebook pro)


Longtime reader, first time poster, etc.

I just updated a Pinebook pro that had been sitting unused for a while. When I did that, silver started crashing and printing an error message about an unrecognized shell. I updated my bashrc to pick up the changes here: gitlab .manjaro .org /manjaro-arm/applications/arm-profiles/-/commit/1b55701c1ca77e886ad4688a92da75b969f78ea7 and it started just hanging instead.

Can anyone point me to what might be going wrong?

Here is my bashrc along with strace output for bash when I try to start it with the silver prompt enabled.

paste .sr .ht /~tuxpup/ae3ea34561c6febe885c0a39e75b60515613a6c4

Can anyone see what I’ve got wrong, or suggest where to look next?

Thanks for any help you can offer.

With the Silver 2.0 version as part of the ManjaroARM 21.02 release the config options have changed a bit… you also need to create the configuration in ~/.config/silver - check the one in the profile: overlays/sway/etc/skel/.config/silver/silver.toml · master · manjaro-arm / applications / arm-profiles · GitLab

Thank you! I had noticed the toml in the upstream README and I’d saved it in ~/.config/silver.toml. The upstream docs didn’t say and I’m so un-used to the confy package in rust that I didn’t spot it. And I didn’t think to look elsewhere in /etc/skel.

That took care of it. Thank you, again.
