[Stable Update] 2017-09-30 - Timeshift, Kernels, Nvidia, JADE, Haskell, JDK9, Snap Support

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

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

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.

First error when updating.

error: no se pudo preparar la operación (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»

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

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

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?

4.9.52 - no errors.

4.13.4 - errors

You mean using btrfs?

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

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?

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.

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.

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).

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)

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