update
stable

#1

Hi community,

it is always difficult to find the right timeslot for a stable ISO release. So we now try the fourth release canidate today. Package-wise only few things changed:

  • we downgraded the Xorg-Server back to v1.19.5
  • fixed some network issue within v4.14 kernel series
  • fixed a regression in Calamares, which prevented us from installing Manjaro on fresh HDDs
  • worked on the grub-live-theme
  • added usual upstream packages

With all this, we hope we will have the stable ISOs available for you guys soon.

So please report back and give us feedback for given changes made to our repositories. Users of our 32-bit Distro should read this.

Network Manager MegaThread
Manjaro Linux is not Booting Up!
#18

Known issues and solutions

This is a wiki post; please edit as necessary


warning: xorg-server: local (1.19.6-0) is newer than extra (1.19.5-1)

xorg-server was reverted due to issues with AMD graphics hardware.

If you have no issues you can ignore the message. Otherwise, sudo pacman -Syuu.

Please read this post for more information:


My rtl8723be wifi card stopped working

You may need to specify (or switch) the antenna selection via the ant_sel driver option, e.g.:

echo "options rtl8723be ant_sel=2" | sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/50-rtl8723be.conf

If you already have an driver options file try switching the option between 0, 1, and 2.


Network connection is unreliable, not working, or not connecting

Occasionally, Network Manager updates change the underlying settings structure (schemas). This can change or break existing settings without you knowing about it.

This can be fixed by removing the existing connection settings, and then re-adding the connection. You may also need to reboot. If this does not work, move to the next point.


networkmanager 1.10.2-1 does not auto-connect to WLAN (KDE)

This may still be necessary

If you find that your WLAN does not auto connect even if the entry is ticked to do so, you can downgrade the Network Manager package. Before doing so, please check the point above.

If you haven’t cleared pacman’s cache it’s possible to downgrade to the working build:

sudo pacman -U /var/cache/pacman/pkg/networkmanager-1.10.0-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz

you’ll also need to temporarily ignore the package in /etc/pacman.conf

# Pacman won't upgrade packages listed in IgnorePkg and members of IgnoreGroup
IgnorePkg   = networkmanager
#IgnoreGroup =

don’t forget to reverse this ignore setting as and when a networkmanager fix is announced and released to stable.

Also, have a look at Network Manager MegaThread .


ZFS still needs ‘systemctl enable’

You might need to do only:

systemctl enable zfs-import.target
zfs mount <pool-name>

This is on linux414 with zfs 0.7.5
This fix persists between reboots (you do it only once).

My first fix attempts wandered a bit, but I think only the 2 commands above were needed.
This bug probably came in with the 17-12-26 update, but I didn’t update 'til 30th.

These might give useful info:
systemctl list-unit-files zfs*
zpool list
zpool status <pool-name>

References:
https://github.com/archzfs/archzfs/issues/186
https://github.com/zfsonlinux/zfs/releases/tag/zfs-0.7.5

According to the 2nd reference, the bug was fixed, I thought …

First comment! I’m on track :slight_smile:
Syncing with mirrors and chid’ing up.


#20

everything works fine but in my case it did not downgrade x-org

:: Starte vollständige Systemaktualisierung...
Warnung: xorg-server: Lokale Version (1.19.6-0) ist neuer als extra (1.19.5-1)
Warnung: xorg-server-common: Lokale Version (1.19.6-0) ist neuer als extra (1.19.5-1)
 Es gibt nichts zu tun

Cheers,

#21

use two u to force it to match what’s in the repository even if what you have is newer:

sudo pacman -Syuu


#22

ok, thx
will try in the evening


#23

The update was successful. Thank you.
Only rc4 is not mentioned anywhere in the system - only Manjaro 17.1 Hakoila :slight_smile:


#24

Some people got confused by having an RC or PRE tag. So I removed it. On the ISO you will be greeted with v17.1-rc4.


#25

Ok, thx.


#26

Thanks Team!
All safe here! Sound, networking, Java…
I still use libinput 1.8…I have no idea if the new one will understand my keyboard…it didn’t last time…so I still use the workaround

#27

No issues. Did not downgrade xorg as I have no issues on my intel/nvidia systems. All XFCE systems on kernel 4.9.x


#28

3 posts were split to a new topic: I915 GPU hang


#30

I have to initiate wifi connection manually after applying the upgrade and restarting the laptop.

It has been like this for a few weeks now.

Hi guys,

No probs with KDE 64 and PLASMA 5.
Nvidia nonfree work fine !

Many thanks team !!


#33

No issues. Did not downgrade xorg as I have no issues on my intel system.


#35

No real issues on Xfce, downgraded just in case.


#36

People who want to test out the latest Mesa and Xorg-Server may switch to unstable and report back …


#37

For those of us who are simple minded whats this mean? Is it related to boot splash or something else?

Also, why do you guys put out stable updates only on days I decide not to bring my laptop to work with me :stuck_out_tongue: Your killing me!


#38

Yep we have worked a bit on the look of grub in live system


#39

Ah ok so its just updated the way it looks, not specifically related to boot splash?
