DKMS fails for v4l2loopback on 6.8 kernel

DKMS fails for v4l2loopback on 6.8 kernel (#2) · Issues · Arch Linux / Packaging / Packages / v4l2loopback · GitLab

issues with auto-mount of ntfs filesystem using Kernel 6.8

The kernel changed default ntfs driver from FUSE one to ntfs3.
These two are not fully compatible, mainly as far as mount options go. If you have custom mount options in the fstab (or any other application, such as VeraCrypt) they need to be changed.

Symptoms:
Mount fails with: Device or resource busy
DMesg reports: Can't open blockdev

Solution:
Migrate your mount options. For me the changes were:

  • allow_otherumask=000
  • default_permissions → [drop]
  • user_id=1000uid=1000
  • group_id=1000gid=1000

plymouth update may cause black screens

With a newer version of plymouth than 22.02.122 you may experience an unbootable system with a black screen. This might be due to not having early KMS enabled. If you have an Nvidia GPU you could set nvidia_drm.modeset=1 nvidia_drm.fbdev=1 to the kernel parameters in your bootloader config to avoid the need of KMS. However, with Wayland around the corner, KMS will be needed.

To “fix” the current problem, we have downgraded plymouth once again to have more time to find a proper solution to migrate most of your installations to a working state with newer plymouth versions.

sudo pacman -Syuu

Those who don’t have issues can enjoy the newer version of plymouth.

polkit update might remove your local modified config

With polkit 124-1 there were changes made to etc/pam.d/polkit-1. So check if you made local changes to the file. See also: https://www.reddit.com/r/archlinux/comments/19bnj0i/comment/kit2v33/

  • Yes, replace bashrc-manjaro with bash
  • Please also compare your:

    and retrofit all of your customisations as there was no .pacnew file generated.
  • Same goes for /etc/skel/.bashrc
pacman and pacman-contrib changes

pacman-contrib is now split out from pacman. If you have anything installed that depends on pacman-contrib, update (after you finished the Release Update) with:

Initramfs image can be bigger on 6.7 kernel due to Nvidia GSP Boot firmware

We all known that kernel 6.7 is very feature rich. One of the features is the inclusion of Nvidia’s GSP Boot firmware into Initramfs. However this will increase your image by 150 MB and the fallback image might be 240 MB in size. A way would be to remove kms from mkinitcpio.conf and redo your initramfs images. A discussion regarding that can be found at Arch Gitlab: kms hook increases the initramfs size heavily starting with 6.7 kernel (#238) · Issues · Arch Linux / Mkinitcpio / mkinitcpio · GitLab

To reduce size add fallback_options="-S autodetect -S kms" to /etc/mkinitcpio.d/linux67.preset

Making dbus-broker our default D-Bus daemon

2024-01-09 - Jan Alexander Steffens

We are making dbus-broker our default implementation of D-Bus, for improved performance, reliability and integration with systemd.

For the foreseeable future we will still support the use of dbus-daemon, the previous implementation. Pacman will ask you whether to install dbus-broker-units or dbus-daemon-units. We recommend picking the default.

For a more detailed rationale, please see our RFC 25.

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

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

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

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.

Solution for all with NVIDIA Geforce 210:
Use Kernel 6.1.xx until EOL in December 2026. Get newer Hardware.

Maybe somebody should write on the right place Geforce 210 is not longer supported in Manjaro.
For Ubuntu/Mint there is a possibility:

Update went smooth.

Thanks manjaro team.

As far as I can see that’s an unofficial PPA, there is no official support. If you’d be happy to trust that on Ubuntu/Mint then 340.xx and 390.xx drivers are available with patches for later kernels on the AUR;

Is still supported by Manjaro:

And older/newer Kernels

Well, this is a good one.

I haven’t updated in about two months because I’ve been moving out of Japan and stuff, so I focused on getting the most out of my time here… anyways, I’m running Manjaro GNOME on btrfs due to my (future, not yet realised) NAS running on btrfs. Today I update the package lists and saw that there is about 2.2GBs of packages to install, around 9GB of total Install size. I made some cleanup recently and had 15.6GiBs of free space on disk, so I figured all should fit with some 3GBs overhead… yeah, famous last words.

I checked all the known issues as posted in the wiki post, and I ran the update with pacman -Syyu pacman-contrib due to that 2-16 update which split them. I replaced bashrc-manjaro with /core/bash, downloaded all the packages, the sufficient space check passed, everything was going well until I started getting write errors while updating papirus-icons… This was confusing since df -h and gnome-nautilus both showed 6GB of free space still left on root partition and some sensible values on all others.

Well, I ran paccache -rvk 2 to clear out some 2.1GB more space from old packages. To make sure the filesystems get cleared or maybe SSD trimmed, I rebooted the PC only to find out that all the Linux kernels have been wiped from the boot partition! XD

I’m writing this post from a live-booted Manjaro GNOME from a Ventoy ssd-pendrive I always carry for such occasions. Now I have to remember how it was done the Arch way (I installed Arch once back in 2013), hopefully chrooting into the existing Manjaro install, checking that free space situation, mounting all the partitions and running mkinitcpio should be enogh, but please let me know if you have any better ideas getting out of this predicament.

P.S. this is not the first time I’m getting silly errors due to running out of free disk space (I guess my sence of “enough free space” has gotten deprecated). What’s outrageous is that pacman always passes the free disk space check! I think this might be a bug… one more time this happens and I’m setting up a VM for testing just that, and file a bug report (question to readers: Should I file it here with Manjaro or to upstream (Arch))?

You have to ALWAYS finish the update with kernels. Now just chroot and reinstall them. (and finish the rest of it)

Arch of course. Just make sure you use Arch VM.

Well, which are you using? :wink:

Since it seems to be the former, than please create a new Support thread with more details to help us help you.

Update went fine on X11 and stable. Still have the random freezing issue when testing Wayland, but I understand that may not come right for multi-monitor setups with Nvidia proprietary driver until v6.

Hey @MrLavender .
Thank you for the suggestions. I like Manjaro and will use it on this Machine in future, and yes you are right, it is an unsupportet PPA and not trustworthy.

AUR is unsupported from Manjaro because Manjaro does not officially support AUR. The 340.xx Branch is in AUR. (Yes i can try) but i like the nouveau drivers because they are FOSS.

390.xx Branch does not include the old Geforce 210 Hardware. @pheiduck

So … Geforce 210 is not longer supported in Manjaro with kernels higher then 6.1.xx because Manjaro has no support for AUR.

Not sure if this is just me or if others are experiencing this but my discord version still has not been updated from 0.0.44-1 to 0.0.45-1. I was wondering what the process is for updating one of the packages and would have thought that when it was updated on arch that it would have also been updated for the Manjaro Official Repositories. If anybody knows of the process and if there is any way to help in that process I’d be interested in learning. Thanks!

Btrfs is not comparable with other filesystems. You should not go over 80-90% full with btrfs, or you will regret it.

You can find good Information about Btrfs in the wiki

0.0.45-1 is on unstable branch. It takes longer for new Arch packages to get to stable branch because they go through unstable and testing first. That’s the whole point of stable.

It turns out I missed the update a couple days ago. I pushed it to testing & stable a couple of hours ago.

Normally that is the case. However, with Discord the application will not work if it detects there’s an update. Apparently upstream doesn’t care. :man_shrugging:
