[Testing Update] 2017-09-11 - Kernels, KDE Framework, Mesa, GCC, Removal of OpenRC

update
testing

#1

Hi community,

another week, another update to our testing branch. We updated Mesa to v17.2 series, which includes new drivers and other goodies, updated some of our kernels, added latest KDE Frameworks v5.38 plus having GCC v7.2 as our latest compiler. If you have difficulties to update, please install additional multilib packages of gcc first, so a full upgrade is possible.

With this update, however, we also removed the support of OpenRC. For all users who had used that init-system we recommend to either convert back to systemd or try the new project Artix Linux, which is focused on OpenRC only and is also based on Arch Linux. They already have great migration documentations.

Please test and give us feedback as usual

Everything went fine. 119 packages.
Noticed this but only on KDE:

warning: /etc/locale.gen installed as /etc/locale.gen.pacnew
warning: /etc/drirc installed as /etc/drirc.pacnew
error: could not remove database entry flatpak-0.9.8-1 
error: could not remove entry 'flatpak' from cache 

#3

I got this error. Am I missing something.

warning: cannot resolve "glibc>=2.26", a dependency of "lib32-glibc"
: The following package cannot be upgraded due to unresolvable dependencies:
      lib32-glibc

#4

I got the same errors on KDE Unstable, but since I do not believe I have ever used flatpak, I do not think they will affect me immediately. I do know that after re-booting, nothing is obviously broken.


#5

Pacnew files are nothing to worry about, just updated conf files that didn’t overwrite your existing ones, and probably should be viewed and merged.

I got a conflict message at the start of my update, asking if I wanted to replace flatpak with flatpak-builder. I said yes and flatpak was removed, here is the pacman.log confirmation.

[2017-09-11] [ALPM] removed flatpak (0.9.8-1)

I got one error during mkinitcpio

[2017-09-11] [ALPM-SCRIPTLET] ==> WARNING: Possibly missing firmware for module: n5pf

Not sure what n5pf is, will have to investigate.

Apart from that, smooth update, many thanks.


#6

This has something to do with a Cavium NITROX Crypto Device. The firmware was added in August, but the current linux-firmware is form June. It will resolve eventually.

#7

Thanks to everyone who contributes testing upstream from the stable release - we really appreciate it!

More power to you all.

Ruziel :slight_smile:


#8

No issues xfce. Good update


#9

You should probably integrate the drirc.pacnew into your drirc ( or simply do a sudo mv /etc/drirc.pacnew /etc/drirc )

that one adds the mesa_glthread parameters for compatible games and applications, which boosts the performance of those a lot.


#10

I got an error at configuring fontconfig:

(16/59) Aktualisiere fontconfig                                                                                                                                                                [########################################################################################################################] 100%
Rebuilding fontconfig cache...
Fehler: Befehl konnte nicht korrekt ausgeführt werden

Where can i find this log while pacman is configuring?

And found another one in /var/log/pacman.log some days old:

#11

Me neither, but that error was present on my testing and one of unstable installs, but not on a VBox unstable install. Anyway all seems fine.

Indeed, i start to love Kompare and helps me to identify stuff really quick and take measures.

Thanks, i done it right after. Last game i played was Mirrors Edge, and if i recall correctly was in 2009, but i do care how applications run, so is good to have all the updates on my machine. :smiley:

Cheers! I really love this community!


#12

I got the following error:

warning: removing 'gcc-libs' from target list because it conflicts with 'gcc-libs-multilib'
warning: removing 'gcc' from target list because it conflicts with 'gcc-multilib'
error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
:: gcc-fortran: requires gcc=7.2.0-2

removing gcc-fortran solved this issue, not sure if I even need the package.

Thanks for the update!


#13

None of feral games start after this update. Looking what’s problem havent found yet.
edit: Found solution


#14

This particular “conflict” has been annoying me as well.

There’s a gcc-fortran-multilib package that should solve the problem in a different way.


#15

Well - it seems this update did not turn out all to well for me.
First of on boot gdm is complaining about something glib related:

Sep 12 10:24:56 hk-01 gdm[728]: GLib: g_variant_new_string: assertion 'string != NULL' failed
Sep 12 10:24:56 hk-01 gdm[728]: GLib: g_hash_table_find: assertion 'version == hash_table->version' failed

And 2nd suspend to ram is broken - when waking up the latops screen backlight turns on, but the screen stays black. - I will try to find something useful for debuging - in the meanwhile if someone knows where to look, let me know please.

EDIT: Well well - did what I alsway do when the system acts strangely. Reinstalled ALL packages and removed the latest kernel and now it works again. Good update now!


#16

Also having issues with multilib, on manjaro-openrc.

looking for conflicting packages…
warning: removing ‘gcc-libs’ from target list because it conflicts with 'gcc-libs-multilib’
error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
:: gcc: requires gcc-libs=7.2.0-2


#17

On Manjaro-openrc, the upgrade from glibc-2.25-7-x86_64 to glibc-2.26-3-x86_64 broke all kernels on my desktop computer except for linux-rt-lts-manjaro 4.9 (which I could use to downgrade glibc).

I was getting:

Kernel panic - not syncing: No init found. Try passing init= option to kernel. See Linux Documentation/init.txt


#18

@mu3r73: This might explain a few things


#19

Well I cheered to early - system is unable to wake up from suspend to ram again:

Looks like a kernel issue to me. Do you have an alternative installed? 412 maybe?
