With Kernel 5.9 I started to see issues with my Thinkpad P14s AMD Gen 1’s touchpad. After waking up from sleep dragging would not work anymore. Also, double tapping would not be working anymore. I had to run “sudo modprobe -r psmouse && sudo modprobe psmouse” every time in order to make it work again.
This was fixed with the first RC of Kernel 6.
Now, with 6.0.2-2 touchpad issues have reoccurred.
I had an issue with ceph-lib 15.2.17-1 not updating/rebuilding and crashing pamac. Then the system became unresponsive after trying to update it a couple of times though pamac (couldn’t reboot, couldn’t open a terminal).
I did a search for ceph-lib 15.2.17-1 and the general response was to delete it if not needed. I can’t remember installing it as I rarely install anything from AUR any more where I can help it.
This update caused me a lot of pain, I installed it 4 times and had to go back 4 times after. In the past I haven’t had any major problems with updates but this one is really bad, at least for me. I am using pipewire and wireplumber and my microphone starts crackling after installing the update.
When my pc goes into sleep or hibernation mode, my 3 monitors mirror the content of one until I restart. Often I loose a taskbar or some widgets while doing so, sometimes the KDE widgets switch to a different monitor for no obvious reason. Having the monitors turn off after some given time screws up my wallpaper and crops the one on my bigger main monitor to the size of the smaller ones next to it.
Klipper doesn’t work at all until I restart plasma once after booting up.
It’s a big mess and I am really looking forwart to the next big update, in hopes that it will improve things.
I consider myself to be a heavy user of Manjaro and I do your work but I would appreciate Manjaro offering less broken updates in the future.
After the issue accured i used timeshift to the second last stable (Kernel) release,
because the new Kernel upgrade is only available with the newest nvidia driver upgrade… it forced to me to install both Kernel/nvidia driver at the same time.
At the moment im using 5.15.74-3 Kernel with the last working nvidia driver because no one helps me to downgrade my nvidia driver on the new Kernel.
I never downgrade a driver… can you give me the exact cli command and lead to though the process?
And how and where should i do it? Should i use tty, maybe i will get blackscreen. When im on the KDE Desktop, a normal Terminal cli isnt good idea to rollback a gpu driver, i think.
if you want to downgrade nvidia you have to downgrade all nvidia packages and kernels, otherwise you end up with a black screen … downgrade doesnt provide the option to downgrade kernels nor all nvidia packages, so the best option would be to downgrade them from cache, however if you dont have them no longer in cache, you can forget about downgrading anything… check with: ls -hl /var/cache/pacman/pkg | grep -E 'linux5|nvidia'
