#63

Well, this updated failed for me on my laptop. First I updated by the terminal but it was the GUI terminal. Screen went black and after a while I saw the login window again.

Then I did the shortcut for the full screen terminal and did the upgrade and then a reboot. Then I could not login anymore, I login and immediately get kicked back out.

Went back to the terminal and with the update command I could a error about cinnamon-settings-daemon that could no be found.

I removed that package and with it 3 other dependency’s. I wanted to just reinstall that one package but I guess I had to remove it and the dependencies first.

Now I can’t reinstall because it finds conflicting files.

Any suggestions on how to proceed?

Edit: This is the error:


#64

Working fine here with Gnome!


#65

Those files normally belong to cinnamon-settings-daemon package. So what you could do is either remove those files, then install cinnamon-setting-daemon and other packages OR first install cinnamon-settings-daemon with pacman --overwrite and then install the rest without --overwrite.

--overwrite is not something you do in normal circumstances, but it seems appropriate for this particular situation.

See this article for pacman (Arch Wiki).


#66

I’m impressed, everything went suspiciously fine!


#67

try sudo pacman-mirrors -f3
first … then

sudo pacman -Syyu

#68

Any idea when there will be an ISO of Manjaro Deepin 18 with the 4.19 kernel series?


#69

Only @oberon can tell, as he’s the maintainer of this flavor.


#70

Everything updated and started up with no problem. I have yet to run into problems.


#71

No problem here.
Linux 419 & Qtile 0.12


#72

Sorry to hear of your hassle, but i just felt i wanted to point out that from your first post you are explicitly speaking of…

Manjaro GNOME 18.0

…& that nobody else reading your second post’s…

kernel 4.19.6-1-MANJARO that breaks suspend-to-RAM

…should mistakenly interpret that as implying a generic problem. --> My KDE Lappy, just now updated, continues to Suspend [ie, to RAM] with the latest kernel version.

Good luck.


#73

this kernel update will slow the system? as linus said.


#74

The Kernel Patch to disable Intel SMT will come with 4.20 afaik. The “Patch” got backported to 4.19, but then, they removed it again. If my information is right. But i don’t care, my Intel Core i5 CPU does not have SMT.


#75

how do you check if cpu has SMT ? online?


#76

Just check your CPU specs, if your CPU is HT/SMT capable. My Core i5 Haswell isn’t. Just Google for your CPU, if you are unsure.


#77

can you help me to find it

Last OT reply from my side :wink: It does have HT (most of the mobile CPU’s do use it) https://ark.intel.com/products/65707/Intel-Core-i5-3317U-Processor-3M-Cache-up-to-2-60-GHz-

But just wait, until 4.20 hit’s the market and we will see, how “much” performance we will loose over safety.


#79

after I updated the system, when I open the “Downloads” folder pcmanfm automatically crashes. I don’t know if this is related to the update but this didn’t occur before.


#80

areyou talking about Hyper-Threading right?
so i am waiting for a disaster ?
will manjaro include the patch on 4.19 ?


#81

Every time there is a huge update to XFCE-gtk3, the theming (icons in Thunar, theming of the panel/applets/notification area icons) all revert to gnome/adwaita and font size becomes tiny on my hidpi laptap. I’m sure it’s something to do with XFCE-gtk3 settings/configurations, but I don’t know what.

It always takes one or 2 updates after that to get it back to normal.

Everything works, it just looks terrible for a while.

My laptop used to run Unstable but I had switched back to Stable repo.

I haven’t updated my PC xfce-gtk3 install yet, but that one isn’t so noticeable because most of the time I’m logged into Budgie on that one.

(I haven’t updated my original xfce-gtk2 install but I don’t foresee issues with that. Never a problem there).


#82

Will I lose any desktop settings I tweaked with --overwrite? Or are my cinnamon settings stored somewhere else?
