Wanted to know is it okay to update my system to the latest and greatest. I use OBS and when there’s some kernel update it may or may not break the GPU to where I can no longer stream to Twitch with OBS.
Wasn’t wild about that funny fix of jumping onto the unstable branch or downgrading FFmpeg/x264 (systems cries so much about breaking stuff) so I found some older system backups and just rolled the whole thing back.
Just make a timeshift backup, backup other valuable data in addition, prepare a live iso just for the case you need it and update. With timeshift you always can turn back the whole system to old conditions.
Blacklist the package from pacman and update it manually. If something goes wrong, downgrade picking the old version from /var/cache/pacman.
I love TimeShift, its saved my bacon ssoo many times in the past.
Yeah I was hoping someone had a “solved” out there and save me some time if I have to roll it back. I’ll play with it again tonight. My work laptop had a big update so it maybe safe to try.
