[Stable Update] 2021-06-07 - Kernels, Perl, Haskell, Tesseract, Cutefish, KDE, Nvidia

After last update:
“Failed to Start Simple Desktop Display Manager”.
Using RX580 and Ryzen 5 3600X with KDE Plasma DE.
Re-installing SDDM - didn’t help.
Disconnecting my second monitor also comes with nothing - same error.

KDE ryzen + nvidia (proprietary) system prompts the following when update tried.

resolving dependencies…

responding default N fails update. Dependency list seems weird.

Packages skipped. No problems so far

I’m getting this when updating:

==> dkms install --no-depmod -m rtbth -v 3.9.6.r8.g989b89b -k 5.12.8-1-MANJARO
Error! Bad return status for module build on kernel: 5.12.8-1-MANJARO (x86_64)
Consult /var/lib/dkms/rtbth/3.9.6.r8.g989b89b/build/make.log for more information.
==> Warning, `dkms install --no-depmod -m rtbth -v 3.9.6.r8.g989b89b -k 5.12.8-1-MANJARO' returned 10

EDIT : It doesn’t really cause any problems though. Bluetooth works just fine.

No problems here on three KDE computers :slight_smile:

5 posts were split to a new topic: Steam-native crashing

That’s not a valid locale, the last part should be uppercase en_US.UTF-8 (and with a hyphen as @dolour spotted/posted below).

I have an Dell XPS 9560 which has a NVIDIA GTX 1050 and I use a CallDigit TS3 dock connected to two DisplayPort connected LG 27UD69P 27" 4K monitors. One monitor is connected with a USB-C-DisplayPort cable and the other is connected with a DisplayPort to DisplayPort cable.
I have had no problems with the NVIDIA drivers in this update with kernel 5.11.22-2 and KDE.
Was expecting problems based on previous reports and had a TimeShift backup ready to go. Thankfully, I didn’t have to use it.

That links to manjaro’s gitlab which

  1. wants me to log in there
  2. produces a 404 (not found) error



No problems with KDE version running at VMWare VM.
Kudos for awesome update.

Maybe this can help somebody considering the update:

I have the following setup and had no issues regarding the Nvidia drivers:

LG 27UD58P-B 4K monitor connected directly to DP
Samsung S24D300H 1080p monitor connected to DP with an HDMI adapter
NVIDIA RTX 2080 SUPER using proprietary drivers

All those normal packages got updated as you can see in the list. Else it would have been reported earlier.

Always has been en_US.utf8 so far via Manjaro install. Dunno where you should get the upper case UTF8 version.

I dont think upper- or lowercase matters (although its consistently uppercase on my list, which also uses just defaults), but there seems to be a “-” missing. Afaik it should be “en_US.UTF-8”

Weird, not on my machines:

$ grep en_US /etc/locale.gen
#  en_US ISO-8859-1
#  en_US.UTF-8 UTF-8
#en_US.UTF-8 UTF-8  
#en_US ISO-8859-1

edit: /etc/locale.gen is owned by glibc package. Just extracted the last version in my package cache - it’s the same uppercase spelling there.

I experienced graphical glitches in applications that use OpenGL with my AMD R9 graphics card upon updating mesa to the version in this stable update (21.1.2-0). However, switching to unstable branch and updating just the mesa packages to version 21.1.2-1 seems to have corrected the graphical issue for me. I don’t know if this information is helpful to anybody else, but I thought I’d share it.

edit: Graphical glitches still appearing with mesa 21.1.2-1 even. I was wrong, they haven’t gone away. Ignore everything I have written here… my apologies…

The graphical glitches look like this–> https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/71015?getfile=20328


Maybe check in a live-session with a fresh 21.0.6 ISO if you have the same graphical glitches. They just finished building. Links are in the first post of this thread.

Smooth update on my Acer MM15 & on my Desktop :ok_hand:

Cutefish seems cool… but I think it’s more oriented to be used on a tablet.
I’ll give it a try!

Dunno. I have also

What’s with the new horribad Firefox? Why does it exist? Is this really “stable” or some horribly wrong gone alpha that accidentally got released to stable upstream?

As a quick partial fix go to about:config and set browser.proton.enabled to false but this setting will be removed soon. :frowning:
