#43

With last weekend’s update, ZFS dkms started installing in the right order (SPL first), so now the updates run perfectly. (linux49, KDE, on HP Z400)


#44

Dear @j77h, could you please share your experience with zfs in Manjaro, from installation to performance in your workstation?


#45

Update went smoothly as usual, thanks!

Specs:

  • linux49
  • XFCE
  • Acer Aspire E 15

#46

Do we have some issues with Catalyst on Kernels v4.11+?


#47

First, I have a R7-240 VGA-Card installed and I think the Catalyst is too old for this Card to bring it to 100% working.
The second thing is, that Xorg-server is locked to Version 1.18, while Catalyst cannot handle newer Versions.
With AMDGPU I have the Latest Version.

Sometimes I have Screen Tearing when I watch Videos with Catalyst, not with AMDGPU.
I don’t play Games with this Card, so I cannot say something about that.

After 1 Day Office work and watch two Videos, I can say it is working better.

#48

Updated 3 computers and they’re all running fine. No problems here.


#49

On an “Asus M5A99FX Pro Rev. 2.0” Mainboard and “Asus R7-240” VGA-Card, Kernel 4.11.1-3 is not booting with Catalyst and I don’t know why.

The switch from Catalyst to radeon over mhwd fails too, so I used a workaround from [Tids] (Can't boot after switching video-catalyst -> video-ati) and successfully changed the Driver to AMDGPU and then from Kernel 4.10 to 4.11.

Manjaro XFCE, linux49 - update went smoothly, nothing broke. Thanx!


#51

done and done :slight_smile:
went nicely.
I have the habit to do the next command

mhwd-gpu --setgl nvidia

…but that fails because the option –setgl seems to no longer exist…
Something has been added/taken out?
Thanks :slight_smile:

#52

All works fine on three machines with Plasma Stable and Kernel 4.11

#53

Ok, good to know. Since we still use linux49 on our install medias, we still have time to drop Catalyst soon or later. At least when we use a newer kernel v4.11+ or so.


#54

Flawlessly smooth update as usual.


#55

Flawless update, and as a bonus i see the bug that got me to switch from XFCE to KDE has been fixed by the panel port.


#56

Another smooth update, and not too bad size-wise, only between 500 and 550 Mb.


#57

I’m on KDE here, haven’t noticed any issues thus far.


#58

No issues for Xfce on Thinkpad laptop integrated graphics. Kernel 49. Thanks again Philm & Forum members.

Thought I remembered forum encouraging people to do ‘likes’ for manjaro, but researching FAQ and couldn’t find anyting - No biggie - Thx again.


#59

This is AFAIK a feature of the software. Disquss? They recommend liking, not answering.


#60

@varikonniemi
just noticed that all the other posts have the heart button, so I am assuming that I am to ‘like’ just specific posts? Assume this is what you meant? - Thx


#61

You are to like what you want. Why would you assume it is just specifics?


#62

@varikonniemi
Thanks, I will feel free to ‘like’ posts that have been helpful to me. Also to acknowlege those who have helped me with issues.
