On a clean flash, on flo, unity8 started with a black screen. After looking the crash files, that was because unity8-dash crashed with a sigabort.

Worked fine again after a reboot, so it might be a first boot issue.

The crash dump unfortunately won't give us much, we'd need the unity8-dash.log file from ~/.cache/upstart to see the abort message :/

Looking at the stacktrace is qtubuntu qFataling, not something we can fix in unity8 side of things

Is unity8-dash definitely being started after unity8 emits SIGSTOP - which is its way of telling upstart that the mir server is ready for incoming connections?

If not, dash might have tried to connect to mir, before unity8 has brought up mir.

<greyback__> my guess is that dash is being started before the unity8 mir server is running
<tsdgeos> may be
<tsdgeos> i know not enought about upstart stuff
<tsdgeos> start on started unity8
<tsdgeos> is that too early?
<greyback__> hmm, need to check what "started" actually means
<greyback__> expect stop
<greyback__> Specifies that the job's main process will raise the SIGSTOP signal to indicate that it is ready. init(8) will wait for this signal before running the job's post-start script, or considering the job to be running.
<greyback__> hmm, think the state "started" after post-start script run
<greyback__> so my theory is bad
<greyback__> I'm quoting http://upstart.ubuntu.com/cookbook/
