[Stable Update] 2020-08-28 - Kernels, Systemd, PAM, PAMBASE, KDE-git, Deepin, Pamac, Nvidia 450.66, LibreOffice 7.0
Sorry, i didnt research about it, my bad… Thanks
Simply, I replied to you after you edited your previous post. So my reply didn’t need anymore.
And… if, in the future, you want to post terminal output, you can copy it from the terminal with CTRL+SHIFT + C
As @papajoke did, I have launched before the update:
grep -E "pam_tally|pam_cracklib" /etc/pam.d/* /etc/pam.d/lightdm-autologin:auth required pam_tally.so file=/var/log/faillog onerr=succeed /etc/pam.d/passwd:#password required pam_cracklib.so difok=2 minlen=8 dcredit=2 ocredit=2 retry=3 /etc/pam.d/system-login:auth required pam_tally2.so onerr=succeed file=/var/log/tallylog /etc/pam.d/system-login:account required pam_tally2.so
and before the update, I have uncommented them:
grep -E "pam_tally|pam_cracklib" /etc/pam.d/* /etc/pam.d/lightdm-autologin:#auth required pam_tally.so file=/var/log/faillog onerr=succeed /etc/pam.d/passwd:#password required pam_cracklib.so difok=2 minlen=8 dcredit=2 ocredit=2 retry=3 /etc/pam.d/system-login:#auth required pam_tally2.so onerr=succeed file=/var/log/tallylog /etc/pam.d/system-login:#account required pam_tally2.so
The update has been now made in TTY2 and reading:
I am wondering if I should only reimplace “pam_tally2.so [and pam_tally.so] by pam_faillock.so” or reimplace the whole new lines namely:
- in /etc/pam.d/lightdm-autologin, should I reimplace the whole line of the .pacnew file, which is the following:
auth required pam_faillock.so preauth
instead of this line in my actual file actual
#auth required pam_tally.so file=/var/log/faillog onerr=succeed
or should I keep merge them into one of these potential new lines?
auth required pam_faillock.so preauth file=/var/log/faillog onerr=succeed
auth required pam_faillock.so file=/var/log/faillog onerr=succeed
- in /etc/pam.d/system-login, I would uncomment the following lines and reimplace, as @papajoke wrot,e pam_tally2.so by pam_faillock.so:
#auth required pam_tally2.so onerr=succeed file=/var/log/tallylog #account required pam_tally2.so
- in this same file, namely /etc/pam.d/system-login, I would add
user_readenv=1present in the .pacnew file to the line of my actual system-login file:
session required pam_env.so
Could someone please confirm me that I am right on these 3 different points?
Thanks a lot for this update and for the help!
Kernel 5.8 is missing some
xhci_hcd thing, which makes my USB bluetooth dongle not work:

A post was split to a new topic: Difference between KDE minimal and normal installation
So what has it been, 2 weeks, and we still don’t have the latest version of Firefox? Let’s not even mention how outdated Thunderbird currently is right now, or how long it took to get the latest plasma release, etc. It seems like Manjaro is becoming the Debian (as in outdated) of rolling releases.
Is it me, or does it seem like the time between updates is getting longer lately? I’m not complaining, as I appreciate the stability (although, if I am honest, that has been sort of hit and miss lately for me as well), but ugh, it would be nice to at least get things like Firefox and Thunderbird. Do these apps require that much testing?
Have you ever heard of the TESTING branch? If you’re not happy that some updates are held back in TESTING, then SWITCH TO TESTING
Come join the party we have fun there Testing Updates - Manjaro Linux Forum
Yep, well aware of the testing and unstables branches. I’m happy enough on stable. I guess I don’t understand why apps like Firefox and Thunderbird have to be delayed so long…
Probably because they are not absolutely critical updates. Why do you want the updates?
Both of them have new and useful features/fixes. Anxious to try the hardware acceleratiion in Firefox 80. For Thunderbird, anxious to see if the dark mode actually looks properly on Plasma. I suppose I could install from snap or something, but sort of defeats the purpose os using a rolling distro, imho.
Then switch to testing lol I don’t understand. You want to test new features so yeah I don’t understand you.
As I said in my original post, I appreciate the stability of stable. I don’t think it’s unreasonable to wonder why it takes so long to get firefox and thunderbird on a rolling release. Especially when every other disto already had them weeks ago (even non rolling distros.)
Stable updates here come in batches. If it’s held, that’s usually in order to stabilize it.
I would like the stable version to reduce the updates (I’m especially interested in stability), while you want the opposite.
As you can see, pleasing everyone is not possible.
Don’t take it badly, but I think you can’t have it both ways.
I would quote Mr Phil, “…even Stable is not stable, it’s only a label…”.
2020-08-28 is for me one week and we have firefox 80 in stable
Umm, Firefox 80 was released on August 25th, which is nearly 2 weeks ago (12 days). And nope, you are incorrect. it’s still not in Manjaro’s stable repo.
You’re right I just verified and it is still v79 on Stable, if you’re eager to try new features you know what to do though
Wait 2 weeks is normal for all applications in stable: we have branches that must be used properly.
if we have an update tomorrow it will come back.
sorry I use firefox-developer
