[Stable Update] 2017-07-16 - Kernels, Deepin, Palemoon, KDE-Framework, XFCE4-GTK3

Unless you are really cramped for disk space, just don’t remove a working kernel when you decide to test a new one. You can have several kernels installed.

And on a STABLE branch machine, rushing to test a new kernel seems the wrong thing to do. There is probably a reason you are on STABLE, rather than TESTING.

You can switch back and forth each time you boot.

And its a tempest in a teapot.

Decided to reinstall 17.0.2 from a DVD and update from there. It all went smoothly and ethernet connection has been restored. It will take me a couple of hours tomorrow evening to get everything back the way I like it, but at least its all working. Thanks to all who made suggestions, they were greatly appreciated.

Hello, could you solve the suspension problem with the 4.12 kernel? With the 4.11 and 4.9 kernel works fine, with 4.12 after restoring it is left with the mouse and does not skip the screen to enter the password, only when you suspend. regards

Here in KDE land, the update and reboot worked perfectly!

I have exactly the same problem and some others too:

Same question for you
Can You give info about your system, hardware, desktop and which drivers.
I ask not because I can help but just because I’m scared for my system :slight_smile:

Seems to be working here with no issues on the 4.11 kernel using GNOME.

I did get a warning after the update though

could not get file information for etc/xdg/autostart/msm_notifier.desktop

I tested 4.12.1 briefly as well and it seemed to work fine. I didn’t modify any files for changing schedulers or anything like that. I’m going back to 4.11 in order to avoid potential issues.

I don’t understand the kernel thing either. I’m using 4.9.37 which appears to be the LTS/Recommended one. I don’t understand why I would use anything but the LTS/Recommended kernel. When a different kernel becomes the LTS/Recommended version, I’ll switch to that one.

XFCE here.
Updated, switched kernels, rebooted, opened a few apps, everything seems fine and dandy.

Hi folks,

Translate bug (French lang)

Return of the famous pamac mirrors select bug

KDE_64 Kernel 411 - 412

after the update I got ‘cgroup: remount is not allowed’ on shutdown or reboot

yes… i know. the recommended kernel (4.9) is still on board.

Had to remove npm prior to installing the update, since that was preventing me from updating throwing out an error everytime. After removal of npm everything went smoothely. Installed npm again after update. However, I noticed that it the update also installed alot of KDE depedencies while I do not have KDE nor any KDE apps… Can I safely remove these dependecies?

Great work, updates on 3 machines went very smoothy.

Same problem as [Stable Update] 2017-07-16 - Kernels, Deepin, Palemoon, KDE-Framework, XFCE4-GTK3 here.
With kernel 4.12, message ‘[FAILED] Failed to start load kernel modules’ appears, and while I can log in from tty2, I don’t know what is wrong.
Kernel 4.11 works fine.

I have done a full update, installed kernel 4.12 and rebooted.

Now I have a single 4.12 entry in the GRUB menu at boot, other kernels and operating systems are not listed any more. This is not a problem for me, but it’s not the way it should work.

The Octopi bug/regression not listing AUR packages to be updated is still there.

I have not tried suspension yet.
