Manjaro-specific packages which need an update

@Ste74, can this overlay of polkit be removed, or are there any customization we need to keep?

newer overwritten sync packages:

   [OVERWRITTEN SYNC PACKAGE]  ->  [LOCAL PACKAGE]

   polkit-0.116-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz  ->  polkit-0.115+24+g5230646-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz

I m not at my manjaro pc.. Who build this polkit overlay.. If i m the man i don t remember why we build so we can remove and let see what happen... :wink:

There is custom settings based on experiences of Manjaro users. Some settings are modified during the build of the package with some sed magic.

Quoting the PKGBUILD:

 ###
  # These changes represent feedback gathered over time from Manjaro users and
  # should prevent "hidden" issues with USB devices and performance issues
  # with SSDs.
  #
  # Anyone looking for further power savings can easily alter these settings
  # after installation.

  # Be conservative with SATA ALPM to prevent poor SSD performance and
  # potential data corruption; makes little difference in normal system usage.
  sed -i '167s/ min_power/ max_performance/' default

  # Disable aggressive USB device autosuspend.
  # This prevents "hidden" issues with USB hardware that is incompatible.
  sed -i '270s/enable/enable aggressive/; 272s/=1/=0/' default

Manjaro build files for polkit has a .install and a .patch. As for it it is still relevant or not nowadays, that's a good question, I don't know honestly.

tlp was modified by @jonathon unless someone else changed something since.

Thank you for letting us know!

deepin-screenshot has been updated upstream, with an important fix (blurring wasn't working correctly) - can it be updated in the Manjaro repos too? It's gone from 4.1.11 to 4.2.0.

Updating

updated in unstable

A post was merged into an existing topic: Non-Manjaro packages which have been flagged as needing an update

community/grub-btrfs is at 1.11-2, while upstream and arch are at 4.0.1

Newer versions are needed to correctly populate the btrfs snapshot submenu in grub with snapshots taken with snapper -> snap-pac -> snap-pac-grub.

That is nearly two years old, any reason why we are not simply using the Arch build for this?

I don't know; I assume it's an overlay package which has stagnated.

I've removed the overlay package in unstable.

It has been fixed in May of last year with pkgrel 10
