Do not run the DDM (device-driver-manager). Console produces the following:

sparky@home-pc:~$ ddm
Fontconfig warning: «/etc/fonts/conf.d/50-user.conf», line 14: reading configurations from ~/.fonts.conf is deprecated. please move it to /home/sparky/.config/fontconfig/fonts.conf manually
sparky@home-pc:~$

Please help solve the problem.

Sincerely, Fox909.

Remove ~HOME/.fonts.conf file (it's hidden)

Remove. No warning is issued. But the DDM will not start :(
sparky@home-pc:~$ ddm
sparky@home-pc:~$

What about:
ddm --force
or
sudo ddm --force

DDM is a 3th party application so I suggest to report it to the DDM developer at SolydXK forums.

SolidXK forum (http://forums.solydxk.com/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=5712&p=54852#p54852):
There's only a slim chance anybody here uses SparkyLinux ... probably nobody. You should post your question here http://sparkylinux.org/forum/.

I've seen the first answer there...
There is only one guy in power to help with that - the application developer Schoelje.
He posted something there - give him an answer, please.

Remove 'mount' directory:
sudo rm -rf /lib/live/mount
For some reason the "/lib/live/mount" directory still exist after installation Sparky on a hard drive.
Have to add it to post install.

I uploaded ddm-2.1.3-sparky-20150706 to the repos so upgrade now.
It fix the "/lib/live/mount" dir problem.

sudo rm -rf /lib/live


it will crash rebuilding

No, don't.
Remove /lib/live/mount only if still exist and reinstall live-scripts if the /lib/live directory has been removed.
