or some lib32 libraries haven’t been adjusted (updated) yet… apart from the other system I use jack2 and also some lib32 packages (audio stuff) but that would be very unlikely unless a lib32 GPU library is affected
Answering my own question about constantly re-enabling powersave power profile – this has now been fixes with either this update, or the one before (I managed to skip that one on my affected computer). Setting Performance, Balanced or Powersave now work as expected.
Very minor regression that I noticed and I’m not even sure what caused it (probably kernel 6.1, I jumped to it with this update): after the PC unlocks or wakes up from sleep, the num lock light on the keyboard stays off. But it’s still on, it’s just the light.
I’m running an Nvidia GPU with the proprietary driver, connected via DisplayPort to a “GSync-compatible” monitor. My desktop is KDE Plasma, under Wayland.
After this update, my monitor was constantly dropping out to a black screen for a few seconds, in what seemed to be a soft reboot of some kind. When the picture reappeared, it would work for a couple of seconds before blacking out again. It stopped when I went into Plasma settings and changed the monitor’s refresh rate to its highest supported rate.
Possibly related is the fact that this update is when the “Adaptive sync: Never/Always/Automatic” drop-down menu appeared for the first time on that same page of Plasma settings. It defaulted to “always,” and changing it to other values does not prevent the constant blackouts when changing the refresh rate.
Not sure if this was said explicitly or not. I added PAMAC_CLI_AUTH=1 to /etc/environment, logged out and logged back in again and now running pamac upgrade in a cli allows authorization natively, no more intrusive pop-up from the GUI asking for a password.
