#162

Like @Termy I could not boot after the update. I think this had nothing to do with the update itself, I got an error during the updates thanks to a corrupted local package database (entirely my own fault…) and afterwards kernels 4.10 and 4.9 did not boot anymore.

Luckily I still hat 4.8 installed an could boot that one. update-grub did nothing, but reinstalling the kernels did the trick and now everything runs smoothly as usual with Manjaro!

Thanks!


#163

Today I upgraded Manjaro KDE to version 17.0.2 on two notebooks. The upgrade failed because of r. I had to do a

sudo pacman -S r --force

and then upgrade. Except for that all went well. I am now running kernel 4.11.


#164
sudo pacman -R xorg-utils xorg-server-utils

because the GUI removes also the dependencies but you do not want that for these meta packages


#165

does 4.11 boot for you?


#166

For me yes, on two different notebooks that run Manjaro KDE.


#167

Haven’t tried 4.11 so far. Currently need the machine for something more or less productive, so I’ll probably not start any further experiments today, sorry!


#168

What should I do after removing xorg-utils and xorg-server-utils with sudo pacman -R? Should I proceed to installing xorg-apps?

$ sudo pacman -S xorg-apps

Should I install all of them?


#169

No need. The needed packages are already installed on your system.


#170

hum, so it’s something on my side - anyone got any ideas how to pin it down if i can’t even look at the logs? :confused:


#171

Perfect ! All went fine with gnome.
Yesterday = Big windows update -> 45 min
Today = Big manjaro update -> 5 min :smiley:


#172

Use a tty (ctrl alt F3) or terminal.
Just do not use pamac.
type: sudo pacman -Syu

:slight_smile:


#173

tanks


#174

I chrooted into my install and reinstalled kernels 410 and 411 (he wouldn’t let me reinstall 49 because it’s running - is that normal?)
I also did a pacman -Syyu to be sure.

Still, all kernels just freeze at the harddrive check. Does anyone have any idea what to do next?

Best,
Leonard


#175

I have encountered this issue.

# pacman -Su
:: Starting full system upgrade...
resolving dependencies...
looking for conflicting packages...
error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
:: gstreamer0.10-good-plugins: installing libsoup (2.58.1-1) breaks dependency 'libsoup-gnome'

#176

Does it make a difference when you install openssl-1.0-compat? My desktop pc had the same issue when it froze before sddm checking the blocks of the hdd.


#177

Update went fine with KDE + XFS + 4.10 Kernel.

System feels more smooth & responsive after this update.

Edit: Kernel 4.11 works fine.


#178

Fixed package is on the way. 7.6.0-3 will no longer depend on xorg-server-utils


#179

Uninstall gstreamer0.10-good-plugins and retry.
It is reported already in this post.


#180

just to be sure: you didn’t install the kernels via the graphical manager, did you?
Because the chroot is only active inside the terminal, so you’ve got to “sudo pacman -S linux410”


#181

I did sudo mhwd-kernel -i linux410

Edit: The last thing working when booting is “Starting Hostname Service” …if that helps.
