#181

From what I understand you mean this for these files:

/etc/passwd.pacnew
/etc/gshadow.pacnew
/etc/shadow.pacnew
/etc/group.pacnew

But what about

/etc/pacman.conf.pacnew
/etc/pacman-mirrors.conf.pacnew

Should we replace the originals with them?


#182

You can use pacdiff to check what was changed in the new pacnew file…


#183

I made a Post about the problems related to the use of Opengl 32 bits libraries that appeared after install this update. In my case I cannot run 32bits aplication that requires those libraries, especificaly on 3d aplication. POL warns about 32 bits libs

I’ve never had this problem in the past. As far as I know Manjaro has multilib by defaut and libs seems to be on the system but for some reason 32 bits libs support cannot by achieved.


#184

Octopi-notifier correctly notifies of aur updates, but is still missing the selection upon opening Octopi.

Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!


#185

what to do if I already upgraded? Reinstallation did not help in that case.


#186

In that case, you remove PERL first: sudo pacman -Rdd perl


#187

I have a strange issue in Firefox.
All sites’ checkboxes dissapeared.
Midori is fine. Chromium checked OK.
See image

Any ideas?
My DE is xfce4 and also happenes in i3.
I might check the Plasma login later.
I am realy stucked!:scream:

Edit: I did a full refresh to FF from help menu and it is fine now.
False alarm…


Checkbox Problem
#188

This is due to a bug in the newer versions of Octopi. You have to wait for a patched version to get this fixed.
In the mean time you can upgrade using yaourt: yaourt -Syua
This will sync all databases & do a full upgrade. It will also upgrade any AUR packages you may have.


#189

If you like to use the new pacman-mirrors features like selecting protocols ftp/https/http, or disabling certificate check for https then use the pacman-mirrors.conf.pacnew file as a template for /etc/pacman-mirrors.conf


#190

Ah, thanks. I thought the patch had already gone through :sweat_smile:


#191

pacman.conf.pacnew adds the ability for user repositories, from memory. they are both short text files, so I just did a manual compare and edit (in the case of pacman-mirrors.conf). a diff is more techie solution. :grinning:


#192

What you need is to rebuild it, if you have pacaur, try running this command :

pacaur -Syu --rebuild --foreign

#193

Those options were already included. The difference is that from the new .pacnew there are some stuff removed (mirrors directory, output file, noupdate).


#194

The difference actually is that in .pacnew the SigLevel = PackageRequired lines have been removed from the repository entries.


#195

Will that command also upgrade git packages?


#196

Why would you disable certificate check?


#197

For possible performance gains. The packages integrity and authenticity is checked with GPG signatures anyway. TLS for package transfer only gives you additional confidentiality about what packages you install.


#198

This is off-topic, but yes, it will. However yaourt only compares version numbers, so the git repo will be cloned every time.


#199

Indeed. My mistake. :see_no_evil: :hear_no_evil: :speak_no_evil:


#200

A note on wxgtk. If anyone’s got Audacity installed, this change seems to break it. Simply uninstalling then reinstalling Audacity fixes it.
