grub update

grub 2.12 may need manual post install by the user

With GRUB 2.12 out it is recommended to also install grub to your master boot record or EFI partition. On Manjaro grub gets only installed when you install it to your harddrive the first time. Only advanced users also keep their MBR/EFI in-sync as every package update of grub doesn’t update the installation on your MBR/EFI.

Depending on your system hardware and setup this may could cause an unbootable system on rare cases due to incompatibilities between the installed bootloader and configurations. After a grub package update it is advised to run both, installation and regeneration of configuration:

grub-install [plus the needed options depending of been EFI or BIOS]
grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg

For more specific information on grub-install, please refer to this guideline: [root tip] [How To] Primer on handling a grub package update

Broken Wifi with 6.1.66 and 6.6.5 kernels

Some users report broken Wifi driver support with the latest 6.x kernel series, mostly based on Realtek drivers, either from the AUR or provided by the kernels itself. It is also reported that linux515 and linux67 kernel series don’t have those issues. So if you have a potential Wifi driver problem, consider to install those kernels before updating your system. Older kernels can be found here:

Possible issues reported upstream

The Author of the original patch Johannes Berg had reviewed Léo Lam’s patch by now. So everybody who had tested 6.6.5-3 or 6.1.66-2 should reply to the upstream mailing list with a Tested-by tag as described here: [Stable Update] 2023-12-10 - Kernels, Plasma, Phosh, Systemd, Cinnamon, Gnome, libpamac - #95 by philm

Changes in JDK / JRE 21 packages may require manual intervention

2023-11-02 - Frederik Schwan

We are introducing a change in JDK/JRE packages of our distro. This is triggered from the way a JRE is build in modern versions of Java (>9). We are introducing this change in Java 21.

To sum it up instead of having JDK and JRE packages coexist in the same system we will be making them conflict. The JDK variant package includes the runtime environment to execute Java applications so if one needs compilation and runtime of Java they need only the JDK package in the future. If, on the other hand, they need just runtime of Java then JRE (or jre-headless) will work.

This will (potentially) require a manual user action during upgrade:

  • If you have both JDK and JRE installed you can manually install the JDK with pacman -Sy jdk-openjdk && pacman -Su and this removes the JRE related packages.
  • If you have both JRE and JRE-headless you will need to choose one of them and install it manually since they would conflict each other now.
  • If you only have one of the JDK/JRE/JRE-headless pacman should resolve dependencies normally and no action is needed.

At the moment this is only valid for the upcoming JDK 21 release.

Changes to default password hashing algorithm and umask settings

2023-09-22 - David Runge

With shadow >= 4.14.0, Arch Linux’s default password hashing algorithm changed from SHA512 to yescrypt [1].

Furthermore, the umask [2] settings are now configured in /etc/login.defs instead of /etc/profile.

This should not require any manual intervention.

Reasons for Yescrypt

The password-based key derivation function (KDF) and password hashing scheme yescrypt has been chosen due to its adoption (readily available in libxcrypt, which is used by pam [3]) and its stronger resilience towards password cracking attempts over SHA512.

Although the winner of the Password Hashing Competition [4] has been argon2, this even more resilient algorithm is not yet available in libxcrypt [5][6].

Configuring yescrypt

The YESCRYPT_COST_FACTOR setting in /etc/login.defs is currently without effect, until pam implements reading its value [7]. If a YESCRYPT_COST_FACTOR higher (or lower) than the default (5) is needed, it can be set using the rounds option of the pam_unix [8] module (i.e. in /etc/pam.d/system-auth).

General list of changes

  • yescrypt is used as default password hashing algorithm, instead of SHA512
  • pam honors the chosen ENCRYPT_METHOD in /etc/login.defs and does not override the chosen method anymore
  • changes in the filesystem (>= 2023.09.18) and pambase (>= 20230918) packages ensure, that umask is set centrally in /etc/login.defs instead of /etc/profile

budgie-desktop >= 10.7.2-6 update requires manual intervention

When upgrading from budgie-desktop 10.7.2-5 to 10.7.2-6, the package mutter43 must be replaced with magpie-wm, which currently depends on mutter. As mutter43 conflicts with mutter, manual intervention is required to complete the upgrade.

First remove mutter43, then immediately perform the upgrade. Do not relog or reboot between these steps.

Steam cashes on startup with lib32-libgudev installed

The latest lib32-libgudev update does not cooperate with the version of the same package provided by steam, and steam seems to attempt making calls to both leading to the crash.

Details: bug report, arch task, arch forum thread.

  • Workaround #1 (causes steam to avoid making any calls to lib32-libgudev by using a different library altogether)

    • sudo pacman -S lib32-libnm
  • Workaround #2 (forces steam and any other application to always use the new lib32-libgudev)

    • sudo pacman -S lib32-libudev0-shim
  • Workaround #3 (use steam-native-runtime, which doesn’t have the issue)

    • sudo pacman -S steam-native-runtime

libpamac 11.5.5-1 breaks update function

We are currently working on fixing a reported security vulnerability which gave you root access via pamac-daemon. During that process we broke the update functionality. Hence use sudo pacman -Syu to update to the latest libpamac release (11.5.7-2)

The community repository has been merged into extra and is now empty

The Arch git migration is now complete .

The [community] repository has been merged into [extra] and is now empty.
It may take a bit of time for mirrors to catch up (more details here).

Update your system and handle the pacman

sudo pacman -Syu "pacman>=6.0.2-11"

In order to remove the defunct [community] repo changes must be made to /etc/pacman.conf.
Changes will be provided in a file with the extension .pacnew.
Pacman provides the utility pacdiff to manage these files and will use vim -d for comparison if the environment variable DIFFPROG is not set.

pacdiff -s

If you would like to use a different comparison tool you may prepend the env var:

DIFFPROG=meld pacdiff -s

Then sync with the repositories again:

sudo pacman -Syu

And you can also remove the now unused repository.

sudo pacman -Sc

NOTE: Be aware that this last command will also remove all packages in the pacman cache that are not currently installed: in other words, backup copies of packages that you have uninstalled at some point will no longer be stored on your hard drive.

In most cases, this probably will not cause headaches. To prevent even minor aches and pains, see the Arch Wiki for information on cleaning the cache

Steam fails to launch

A workaround is to install lib32-libnm

OpenBLAS >= 0.3.23-2 update requires manual intervention

2023-06-14 - Felix Yan

The openblas package prior to version 0.3.23-2 doesn’t ship optimized LAPACK routine and CBLAS/LAPACKE interfaces for compatibility. This decision has been reverted now, and the ability to choose a different default system BLAS/LAPACK implementation while keeping openblas installed is now provided to allow future co-installation of BLIS, ATLAS, etc.

The default BLAS implementation will be used for most packages like NumPy or R. Please install blas-openblas and blas64-openblas to make OpenBLAS the default BLAS implementation, just like the old behavior.

Unfortunately you will get errors on updating if you currently have OpenBLAS installed as the default BLAS implementation:

error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
:: installing openblas (0.3.23-2) breaks dependency 'blas' required by cblas
:: installing openblas (0.3.23-2) breaks dependency 'blas' required by lapack

Please append your preferred default BLAS implementation to the regular -Syu command line to get around it. For example:

sudo pacman -Syu blas-openblas

or

sudo pacman -Syu blas

TeX Live package reorganization

2023-06-18 - Antonio Rojas

Starting from version 2023.66594-9, TeX Live packages have been reorganized to mirror upstream collections. Even though the new texlive-basic replaces the old texlive-core, many of the texlive-core contents (including language specific files) are now split between different packages. To find out which Arch package contains a specific CTAN package, you can use the tlmgr utility, eg.

$ tlmgr info euler | grep collection
collection:  collection-latexrecommended

which means the euler CTAN package is contained in texlive-latexrecommended. You may also use pacman -F to query for specific files.

A new metapackage texlive-meta is available to install all subpackages (except for language specific ones), and the new texlive-doc package provides the full documentation for offline use.

DKMS is currently broken as our kernels got compiled against an older gcc

Since the last stable update provided an older toolchain our kernels and binaries got compiled against GCC 12.2.0-1. A similar issue was already posted at Arch years ago: [SOLVED] Kernel 5.5.2 is built with the wrong version of gcc / [testing] Repo Forum / Arch Linux Forums. Therefore users of DKMS have to wait for kernel updates compiled against the new toolchain or downgrade to the older one.

Update (2023-06-05): We pushed a rebuild of all regular kernels against the new toolchain to all branches. Real-Time Kernels we still have to check.

Many applications (firefox, thunderbird, telegram, etc) slow to start on desktops other than Gnome

Hooray! I can finally remove export MOZ_ENABLE_WAYLAND=1 from my ~/.bashrc file!

Firefox 121.0, See All New Features, Updates and Fixes

On Linux, Firefox now defaults to the Wayland compositor when available instead of XWayland. This brings support for touchpad & touchscreen gestures, swipe-to-nav, per-monitor DPI settings, better graphics performance, and more.

Edit: I also removed export MOZ_DBUS_REMOTE=1, which had been required to open links from external applications in Firefox on Wayland, from the ~.bashrc file. Logged out & back in - links opened okay from a couple of apps, so I will assume that line in the file is no longer required.

A post was split to a new topic: Systems hangs after update on Plymouth boot screen

hello @Joshua-17

please open a thread for this issue. i suspect the following problem:
the broken update is using the new grub-version while your chroot-image is using the previous one. that’s my suggestion why chrooting troubles.

Good point. :thinking:

Will create a thread and also a usb stick with an updated iso image and retry the chroot process

What about system that’s not EFI?

Then you will know how you installed the system - and subsequently know which command to use.

As non efi systems is unpredicable it is not possible to provide explicit guidance as you need to know which device you installed grub onto in the first place - and if you used BIOS/GPT - in which case it is not a device but a partition

Another great update. “It’s a Festivus miracle!”

Just for clarification, when the wiki about reinstalling grub says “You need to be in chroot for this procedure”, I’m assuming this is just needed if rescuing a system rather than when booted into it as normal?

That is correct.

But it still shows version 2.06-4 on reboot.

Sorry if I bother someone here with my question, but I need to have a confirmation on this before to make this upgrade. Regarding grub, those magic lines after upgrade and before reboot are this?

Thank you in advance.

sudo grub-install --efi-directory=/boot --no-nvram
sudo grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg

Or this one are more complete?

sudo grub-install --target=x86_64-efi --efi-directory=/boot/efi --bootloader-id=manjaro --recheck
sudo grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg

I have put sudo before because I don’t understand how to go in chroot after upgrade and before reboot and don’t use a live USB. Or I must do in console su and after that those command without sudo. Can someone tell me what is the correct procedure ?
