Hi community,

Now issues, perfect update, thanks to the manjaro-team!
Kernel 4.11.1 works now on my laptop too :slight_smile:


#3

Smooth update as usual. Many thanks Manjaro Team :smile:


#4

Very smooth - Thank you - and the wrong chars during boot with 4.11.1 are gone - the ACPI errors right after loading the kernel are still there though.


#5

Went just fine!
Thank you! :grin:


#6

Smooth update with terminal, KDE edition on 2 machines. Thanks !


#7

Completely smooth on KDE, running linux411. The disaster following the last update taught me to never again update from the gui. At least in linux-land you’re still left free enough to learn your own lessons :wink:


#8

I have this problem. Seem like the kernel can’t update.

please help


#9

Did you remove the plymouth start slash without updating the kernel hooks?


#10

I don’t know what is that. But i try to install kernel 4.9 and remove 4.4 now.


#11

Keep always at least one working kernel ^^

Do you have a graphic show at boot (that is plymouth) or do you see the text prompt?


#12

Yes. I saw many code line which i don’t understand. Do you know how to turn those off ?


#13

Updated without any problems!

Thank you Manjaro Team!!!


#14

Manjaro KDE successfully updated on two machines. No issues. Thank you Manjaro Team!


#15

Clean update via the konsole, thank you. I did not get a Libre Office update, because I think the default for stable is libreoffice-still. But I did get the KDE Frameworks 5.34 and linux49 4.9.28-1. Rebooted, and all is fine.


#16

All seems okay here.

You know, what do these updates actually do ? I mean I know it’s updating software and kernel to newer versions, but like everything seems the same apart from dmesg output. Could we at least get a chiptune and maybe a demoscene scrolley on sucessful bootup after the update j/k lol


#17

@mparillo, you can easilly uninstall the “still” and replace it by “fresh” even in the stable branch. I did this once - with octopi - about 3 months ago, and since then I run the “fresh” version in the stable branch without issue.


#18

Manjaro KDE updated without any problems. Thank you for another smooth update Manjaro Team!

One minor thing I would like to mention, removing an older kernel ( in my case linux 4.10 ) after the update. With manjaro kernel manager.
Grub didn’t update the boot entrys, so I had to manually update-grub.


#19

My conky get messed up, have to fine tune it again. But beside that, no issues.


#20

Manjaro Cinnamon … all went fine. Thanks :slight_smile:
