update
stable

#1

Hi community,

Stefano is working on adding Timeshift to Manjaro, I released a couple of new kernels. Also I worked together with Canonical developers on getting Snap Support ready for Manjaro. You may install it now via:

sudo pacman -Sy snapd
sudo systemctl enable --now snapd.socket

Additionally we have now updated all Nvidia drivers and Vitor Lopes released JADE v0.4 with new features to play web-videos directly on the dashboard:

Please report back and give us feedback for given changes made to our repositories.

Best, Philip
Manjaro Project Lead

#2

Just wondering about this jade stuff? is it another DE for manjaro?


#3

Also here:

For Minecrafters, that want to use jre9, remove -XX:+CMSIncrementalMode (and only this!) from JVM arguments. after this Minecraft will start just fine.


#4

You may simply check it out and see yourself …


#5

Thank you so much sir philm!


#6

You may also read the February Announcement about JADE.


#7

First error when updating.

error: no se pudo preparar la operaciĂłn (no se pudieron satisfacer las dependencias)
:: linux48-nvidia: instalando «nvidia-utils» (1:384.90-1) se rompe la dependencia con «nvidia-utils=1:375.82»


#8

linux48 is EOL and not supported anymore.
Its nvidia module is built for 375.82 and not for 384.90.


#9

Seems you’re using v4.8 kernel still. We have dropped that one. Do you have any other kernel installed yet? If not you may try this:

sudo pacman -Rdd linux48-nvidia
sudo pacman -Syu
sudo mhwd-kernel -i linux49

Then reboot your system into linux49 and remove the old linux48 via: sudo mhwd-kernel -r linux48


#10

timeshift seems like a sub-par solution. suse has a much better approach where every upgrade can be rolled back in the bootloader, so no need for rescue usb:s. Will this system become possible on Manjaro?


#11

4.9.52 - no errors.

#12

You mean using btrfs?


#13

Smooth update. How do I integrate pamac with Manjaro Update Indicator Extension?


#14

Hmm, maybe you check with Intel® Processor Diagnostic Tool. There is a linux version bootable. However, it might be just a regression in v4.13 series. Did an earlier version of that series worked on your end?


#15

Nice to have Timeshift in Manjaro, no need anymore to get it from the AUR. Using it since about 1 year now and it is for me a life saver. It does not replace Clonezilla but is much quicker when you your machine still boot and you have to reverse back because of a broken system.


#16

Damn… what is the pkgrel? I have to move the right pkgrel… i move soon for now change the command with update-command…


#17

First KDE Laptop: Octopi > Run in Terminal

The update was smooth for me, but when I tried to use the kicker Application Launcher > Leave > Reboot, the application that presents the countdown crashed.

I opened a konsole,
systemctl reboot

and everything seems good.

Second KDE Laptop: yakuake > sudo pacman -Syyu

The update was smooth again and the kicker Application Launcher > Leave > Shut Down presented the countdown normally and shut down without any visible error.

LXQt Netbook

Smooth update, clean re-boot via Start > Leave > Reboot > Yes.


#18

Tried on two Dell laptops.

The older one updated without problems:

The second, newer laptop also updated without problems, although the kernel seems to be a slightly older version:

Architect is where it gets interesting. I created a bootable USB with architect and when trying to update packages, for the older laptop it works, for the newer one it hangs at checking keys in keyring:


(note: I’ve cropped the image so I can upload it).

On both systems I connect to the internet via WiFi (in architect as well).


#19

Unable to boot after this update.
Can’t pass grub selection.
The same messages appear in 4.13 4.12 and 4.9…
Running on ThinkPad T450 (i5-5300u 8GB 120SSD)


#20

Same issue on my machine also, issued same command, everything is running fine.
