[Stable Update] 2021-04-28 - Kernels, Wine, Ruby, JDK, KDE-Dev, Mesa 21.0.3, KDE Apps 21.04, Python, Haskell, Mate 1.24.2, Virtualbox, Thunderbird

I always run sudo update-grub before startup to check if kernels are still there.

With this update the kernels where gone in grub. Manjaro settings was also gone from the app menu.

After reinstalling manjaro settings, I installed a non used kernel and that showed up after sudo update-grub.

After reboot I reinstalled the last LTS kernel, that was being used before reboot.

Thanks Manjaro team!

Has anybody experienced issues with cheese after the update? Video flickers just like if the app was working on a persistent burst mode or something …

Unfortunately, I’m not able to reproduce the issue anymore since I decided to roll back to my previous snapshot. There should be many journal entries related to cheese with a gstreamer error, if somebody is willing to reproduce it.

EDIT:
Just decided to step up and try the update again. :slightly_smiling_face:
This is what I get so far whenever I run cheese:

(cheese:1901): cheese-WARNING **: 13:16:10.322: Internal GStreamer error: code not implemented.

Same thing happens if I switch to kernel 5.10.32.
If I test with another webcam enabled app such as Skype, the video output works fine.

Any ideas on how to proceed with this?
I know this issue is not a big deal but IMO, you don’t expect minor things like that to happen in a Stable Release.

EDIT 2:

Issue Resolved.
Downgraded pipewire and pipewire-media-session to version 0.3.25-1

With this last update I noticed an improvements in ram usage at start on Manjaro XFCE. Before I had 700/800 mb of ram used and now around 500mb. Nice. :slight_smile:

No issues with cheese on my side

The firmware seems to be missing in the kernel tree: Kernel 5.11 warning about qat_4xxx firmware / Kernel & Hardware / Arch Linux Forums for more info. It’s the same for kernel 5.12. But it seems not to be a problem.

The update went smooth, except for one small, but very annoying issue – KDE PIM stopped working.

KMail spins up, but it won’t sync or send mail anymore, claiming IMAP and MailDir are broken.

Similarly, KOrganizer, Zanshin and KAddressBook all “work in general”, but their resources are offline.

I just checked Akonadi Console and all resources (even local ones) have:

  • status: Offline, Broken
  • status message: Unable to start.

I tried to restart Akonadi, even rebooted, but the problem persists.

Wait until Manjaro-Team Fix it. On a vanilla Arch Kernel you get some more firmware warnings.

Smooth update, the only thing I’ve noticed is that when clicking on Show Applications (GNOME) the number of columns of the application grid changed from 6 to 7. This was an issue because the first row was below my application dock (in the left side of the screen).

This might be in preparation for GNOME40, however I don’t want it, and the fix in this case is installing App Grid Tweaks (GNOME extension) and changing the amount of rows and columns manually.

Update ran on my Raspberry Pi 4 but now X only runs for about 30 seconds then my monitor looses the signal and goes to sleep. Both xfce and i3 experience the same problem. If I’m quick I can login but makes no difference. Now stuck using tty console only.

Some issues to report from me:

  1. There’s still an issue with resume from suspend and amdgpu at least on some Renoir (Ryzen 4xxx) systems, leading to the system hanging up when resuming from suspend. It works on 5.11.6 and it seems to work again on 5.10.32 (5.10 was affected for some subversions, too), but neither 5.11.16 nor 5.12.0 work, so I went back to 5.11.6 again.
    See my topic about this:
  1. After installing kernel 5.10.32, I checked whether it worked and it did. I then installed 5.12. When I rebooted into 5.11.6, I got an error message (“Failed to load Kernel modules…” or similar) and was thrown into fallback mode. I then installed 5.11.16 (which has the suspend bug) and rebooted into 5.10.32 after checking 5.11.16 - now 5.10.32 gave the same warning.
    Currently I’m on 5.11.6 again after downgrading.

try installing gdm-git instead from the AUR

Hi there!

Ran into a problem of black screen at boot (after plymouth screen).

I’m using KDE and sddm seems to have a little bug now that it doesn’t open in the right tty, so some users might be able to switch tty (most like to the second with Ctrl+Alt+F2) to go into graphical interface.

For my part, I couldn’t switch ttys. It simply stayed a black screen.

Disabling sddm-plymouth and enabling sddm didn’t help, but when I downgraded sddm to one version back, it finally booted for me (as the new bug has been introduced in the now-upstream version).

I did this with chrooting into my installation and execute these commands inside my manjaro-chroot:

su
wget https://archive.archlinux.org/packages/s/sddm/sddm-0.19.0-4-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst
pacman -U sddm-0.19.0-4-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst
rm sddm-0.19.0-4-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst

Then exiting chroot and rebooting into my installed system. Worked fine then. I currently have work to do, so I can’t further investigate this issue (whether it really solved it or it was just a lucky boot). I might investigate more these days.

I hope I could help another user with the same problem. :slight_smile:

This was the site which gave me the idea to downgrade this package: bugs . archlinux.org /task/70528

I had to install Kernel 5.12 from the Terminal. The Manjaro Settings Manager will not install 5.12.

MSM did the business for me on Testing.

Everything looks ok excepts the AMD GPU Driver issue I’ve been facing the later 3 updates. Changing Kernels and kernel/Mesa updates din’t fix the issue wet.

Got this error 5min ago, and as pointed previously, it crashes my PC and requires reset button to be pushed.

Let me know how and where I could better report this issue, I’ve been using linux for 2 months

29/04/2021 07:46 kernel [drm:amdgpu_dm_atomic_commit_tail [amdgpu]] ERROR Waiting for fences timed out!

This release broke Virtualbox, tried to fix, no success.

It shows NS_ERROR_FAILURE (0x80004005)
Kernel 5.10 and 5.4. Headers updated, all packages updated, worked fine before this release.

KDE with kernel 5.10.32 LTS, systemd-boot and SDDM. Everything seems to work, but I noticed some strange things during startup after upgrade (rebooted multiple times, the issue exists):

  1. After entering volume decryption password at boot (got encrypted main drive with custom partitioning + encrypted RAID1), boot manager starts displaying all the usual messages, including UUID of disk drives. And now one of UUID is displayed incorrectly - a question mark is added instead of one of characters. Before update:

UUID=a1b92429-9eda-4260-8099-204a151d8e3f

After update:
UUID=a1b92429-9eda-?260-8099-204a151d8e3f (notice ? instead of “normal” character).

both fstab and crypttab contain valid entries and RAID is automatically decrypted during boot just fine. It’s just that glitch with ? mark…

  1. When boot ends and it’s time to start GUI (I have auto-login enabled in SDDM) instead of displaying KDE desktop immediately, system displays black window that has blinking _ symbol at the top. Just like command line. After a second or two, it disappears and desktop is displayed.

  2. Not sure if this is issue with Manjaro or KDE/SDDM itself, but I have it for 2 months already, and it’s still not fixed. If there are multiple keyboard input languages installed and lock screen is displayed (either after screensaver or manual locking), keyboard icon is displayed at the bottom as usually, but language icon is missing; therefore, it’s impossible to know which language you use to enter password. The only way to find out - enter password and “reveal” it by clicking the corresponding icon in password field. Not a very big problem, but language selector worked for years and it’s now broken.

Upgraded today with “pacman -Suy”, without issues, and after reboot the system seems to be fine, BUT:
when I try to access (i.e. mount) a partition on an internal HDD (which is not used right-away, but is just a destination for occasional backups) Thunar refuses with error message

“Der Datenträger >xxx< konnte nicht eingehängt werden. No object for D-Bus interface.”

Mounting partionitions on this HDD manually with mount -t ext4 /dev/sdc1 /mnt it works, without errors.
Apparently no log entries relating to this issue (tried journalctl -f), no boot issues (tried dmesg)
Any ideas?? Thx.
