#205

Well just updated my last two machines. On my work machine I updated from pacman everything well. It was slow but it worked I am going to update my mirrors to fix that issue. On my openrc lxqt machine I got the following error from pamac;
lib32qt4: installing mhwd breaks dependency lib32-libl I tried pacman and got the same thing then the laptop started acting odd. I couldn’t open anything so I rebooted and it got hung while booting. Rebooted again and used the advanced Grub options and add a 3 at the end of boot option to get to a terminal. I rna the following command to get rid of orphans pacman -Rns $(pacman -Qtdq)
Then I was to run pacman -Syu and do the update.Rebooted and everything was ok!


#206

Those other update notifications you saw on the forum are for the Unstable and Testing repos. You are on Stable.


#207

I had to manually delete all .py and .pyc files in:
/usr/lib//python2.7/site-packages/attr
and
/usr/lib/python3.6/site-packages/attr

Only then did pacman allow me to update.


#208

Blueberry is not longer working:

#209

Hmmm, I wonder if that was a mistake?

Just thinking out loud here, but that kernel was from the same repository that had all the new stuff, and may have required or expected some of those packages.


#210

I have problems with this upgrade…I have posted it in the forum, please provide me a solution.


#211

Start reading around post number 42. It seems they solved the issue.


Strange dependency error for lib32-glu and mhwd?
#212

try this


#213

Well, it was first for me to have such bug, plus its not like i deleted 4.9, i just installed 4.10.8 via mhwd, and it even partially killed live session.

I see that linux is going to be user friendly very soon - any messy graphics or kernel update, and it kills your system, it kills ttys, grub update bug removes windows entry, and you are left with one hope - to have ready usb/dvd installation of linux/windows.


#214

I got mount: error while loading shared libraries: libmount.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory while booting and dropped into a rootfs shell where typing did not work.
I fixed that by booting in a Manjaro USB Stick and chrooted in my system. Then I did sudo pacman -S util-linux libutil-linux and mkinitcpio -P.


#215

did “pacman -Syu”, everything seems to have gone well.
only thing is that i got:

Suche nach in Konflikt stehenden Paketen…
Warnung: Abhängigkeits-Zyklus entdeckt:
Warnung: mesa wird vor seiner Abhängigkeit libglvnd installiert werden
Warnung: Abhängigkeits-Zyklus entdeckt:
Warnung: lib32-mesa wird vor seiner Abhängigkeit lib32-libglvnd installiert werden

figured as long as they are all installed it should be fine. trying reboot now xD
edit: no problems after reboot, glxinfo and glxinfo32 both look good :slight_smile:


#216

Only one small problem, posted about it here -

Other things went really smooth.


#217

I just updated this morning too. Everything froze after I closed the terminal. I did a hard reboot. Everything fine until I get the message "Cannot load (locate?) kdeinit5. I tried loading previous installs, but Manjaro will not load. Should I reinstall using the newest version?


#218

Do you think the orphans were causing the problem, or just being careful?


#219

Out of curiosity, why is Pacman recommend over Octopi for this update? What’s the functional difference?


#220

Pacman is the actual package manager and Octopi is just a GUI for it. Sometimes the GUI options Pamac and Octopi just don’t manage to get it right because more detailed commands are necessary. Also pacman works from a command line, and when your system is graphically handicapped that is the only way to go.


#221

Vmware workstation 12.5 refuses to start after this update, any ideas anyone, as I need this functionality urgently ?


#222

A little bit of both.


#223

I’m not sure I understand. Doesn’t Octopi just run “pacman -Syu”? How does it fall short of that?


#224

Sure, but what if you want to run pacman -Syyu, or you want to remove multiple packages related to each other without doing so individually, what if attempting to do so breaks dependencies, if I remember correctly Octopi and Pamac wont let you do this. No work around, and most importantly how is Octopi going to work in a terminal? As noted most of the problems related to this update involve even a difficulty of getting a tty. Just a quick glance at https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Pacman should make it obvious why using the cli might be better when troubleshooting not to mention what if your GUI package manager is the problem?
