Yeah!.. Many thanks in advance!..

Permit me just a little suggestion for future iterations, if technically possible, of course: Now that both the Architect installer needed to be (at least temporary) ditched and that there are problems on the isos storage front, and last but not the least, that maintaining such a huge number of both Official and Community flavors alike (to let alone testing and unstable branches!..) would certainly require so much work (and obviously you deserve your rest and family time as everyone else to compensate for the superb job you provide us!); wouldn’t it to be possible to provide a single image with something really lightweight like Openbox or a “middle the road” sort of thing like MATE Desktop and tweak the Calamares Installer to add a Desktop page and let us to have the ability to chose whatever else fancies us the most from the list to install the same way we actually do for the Office suite? That way we go from those myriad of images to just 1 to 4 images to maintain. You could for example retain the Official Images and add a 4th one for the full list of DE’s available, or you could go centralized installation one? Either way, a win-win solution, me thinks, because the ones whom are interested on “minority” DE’s already know how they work, look and feel, so no need to actually have a live system with it!.. Unique caveat, perhaps is that it might to be mandatory to install Openbox or whatever else came in with the centralized installer… Oh, well… Or not?..

Have a nice day!..

Does this release happen to contain the Navy Flounder firmware?

I have been doing a fair bit of buildiso tinkering this week to make a live session that will boot with my 6700 XT.

Any reason why no torrents were made available this time? :confused:

Grub is not completely silent anymore(file system check is showing)…had to add ‘console=tty3’ to gurb to make it completely silent. Manjaro Grub theme is not enabled by default, had to enable it manually. Otherwise everything else is fine…I used the Minimal Gnome Linux510 iso.

Seems to be the case for all editions.

Was reported with the rc1 release already, but I guess it got lost because it was split into it’s own thread :man_shrugging:


Just a note: The sourceforge page still directs users to OSDN (in the summary)

I would like to update a perfectly fine working Manjaro 20.0 release, how does one do this without performing a complete reinstall with the new release?

The numbers are misleading. Manjaro is a rolling release. Just update through the package manager

sudo pacman -Syu

Manjaro is a rolling release. If you have done all the updates since you first installed it, then you’re technically at the most recent release!.. Release numbers are just meant for those ones whom need a new iso install. For example: I have currently the 20.x one, but if I want to install it on a new machine, better to download the newer one and install from there. Otherwise I’ll have a long (and potentially not so good) package update process after installation. Have a nice day!..

So where can one find the signatures?

I am relatively new to Manjaro and have just registered to the forums here after taking about a month or so to kick this distro around the block for awhile.

Exciting changes here. I am thoroughly enjoying my experience and to be honest, it is easily one of the best Linux experiences I have had in recent years. Stuff just works. Optimus. Audio. Bluetooth. It all just works.

I go from a cold boot to a usable desktop in under 20 seconds. Even Fedora failed to boot that fast on my machine.

Keep up the good work!

And until today no one knows why :man_shrugging: I’ve reported this to get this fixed and not to let it get lost in it’s own splitted thread :laughing:

:+1: thanks for work!

I run this regurarly so I must be up to date.

Show the Manjaro Release level (but you could still have more updates beyond that).

lsb_release -a

Show Manjaro Release and Candidate history

awk -F'[][()]' '/manjaro-release/{ printf("%-25s %s\n", $2, $6); }' /var/log/pacman.log

sudo pacman -Syyu

from terminal

Thank you @philm and all the manjaro team for your great work!

Guys, where is the link to check the ISO with GPG?
Before the release it was there.
Anyway, thanks to Manjaro team for this release!
