[Stable Update] 2020-08-22 - Kernels, Deepin, KDE-git, Firefox, Pamac, Nvidia 450, KDE Apps 20.08

Thank you for the explanation. Yes you are right even the LTS kernels are having the issue. Since it is my main workstation, I would not be risking compiling new patch kernels. Appreciate the effort, two questions

  • When can we expect the kernel patch to release?
  • Is the workaround kernel level only? Or creating modprobe files with certain commands would help?

Working fine on KDE. System feels relatively faster after this update.

All went good on kde linux 57! But yea regarding nvidia driver, it stayed on 440xx . SO I did removed it and I rebooted . The kernel driver for graphics kicked in after reboot. Then I tried installing on mhwd in settings. But it didn’t install and dialog showing the installation popped up absolutely doing nothing.
So I tried terminal option. Install mosetting and the 450xx and I rebooted. Boom am back with 450 kicking in hot and cool! Thank ya manjaro!

Somehow my Manjaro account was deleted and I had to sign-up again. Strange! Maybe some moderator could explain why did this happen? Fortunately I was allowed to use the same username during the sign-up process.

Now to the point. This was a flawless update. The new Nvidia 450 driver seems to have solved a long time issue during shutdown.

No more messages like this anymore.
I use an Asus ROG Optimus Laptop with KDE DE
A very big thank you Manjaro team

I tried also Nvidia-450xx but it did not fix the problem.
journalctl shows that xfwm4 process crashes - the hint for developers what the update regressed.

Unfortunately my AMD based Toshiba netbook boot process stalls with the 5.8 kernel, I have to select 5.7 or earlier kernel from the GRUB boot menu to boot the system, which then works fine.

Everything fine after the update except the already mentioned issue with ksystemlog not starting due unfulfilled systemd dependency.

Thanks to the manjaro team for the long lasting good work!

Xfce, Kernel 4.14: all went fine.

But there was no upgrade for Firefox (my mirrors are all up-to-date).

In facts, on the branch compare Manjaro - Branch Compare Firefox is not updated.

Update and reboot went fine as long as things remained with kernel 5.7 (Xfce, nvidia 418xx). However, some firmware went wrong when installing kernel 5.8.1 with Manjaro Settings Manager GUI. Building the 5.8.1 initcpio complained about possibly missing firmware for module xhci-pci:

Booting into 5.8 yields a functioning system and desktop. Didn’t test USB behavior yet.

System information, taken after booting into 5.7 again (since I wanted lspci not to be hampered by the 5.8 missing firmware?):

Addendum: After booting into 5.8.1, I see this:

Help, please!

EDIT: I should state explicitly that building the initcpio for kernels 5.7 and lower does not throw the message regarding xhci-pci. And I should state that my laptop has USB 3.0 ports.

In fact, you will not break anything if you compile your kernel, since you will be using the Manjaro repositories to get the PKGBUILD file and kernel parameters, so in the output you will get exactly the same kernel as the Manjaro maintainers provide you. Right now I am using my compiled kernels while dealing with this problem.

In general, the problem is caused by one of five commits in the “patch_realtek.c” file in the kernel source. I tried to use different options in modprobe that I found on the Internet, but nothing worked.

Now I have removed all these 5 commits from the 5.8.2 kernel, and the sound from 3.5 jack audio works. At first glance, none of these commits should have broken the sound, but my tests showed the opposite. And this is weird.

Since no one is particularly concerned with this problem, I don’t know if it will be fixed in the kernel at all. The easiest option now is to take a fresh kernel, cut out the problematic code from it, compile, install and use it without updating it. That’s all I can say at the moment.

After this update (or the 2020-08-16 update, I’m not sure) mame stopped working for me. After installing lua53 everything was fine again.

try to install video-modesetting first

sudo mhwd -i pci video-modesetting

then you can go for 450xx

is in announcement " Firefox released another beta-release"
it’s firefox-developer (not firefox)

No issue on KDE

You can find the sources on Archlinux github project: packages, community. We have to see on how we may reactivate syncing …

Yes, this is a small system file that provides mhwd with information about the driver. It is not the whole Nvidia driver, so no worries!

It wasn’t you it was an issue with the old forums. Read here for the announcement and link to old forums for historical lookup of issues.

The app isn’t launching and the issue is minimal?

@airmailsteam use the terminal :wink:
Or report it to the devs of kde

otherwise systemd 246 is on stable sometime and this is nvm

Yes I can use journalctl and htop; but that’s not the point here
