After this update, grub menu goes into grub2 menu and only after is loading the kernel with a duplicate text output overlaying one over each other … Never had this issue before, no idea why is doing this. I don’t have a UEFI system.


#4

On unstable, but same as test from what I can see.

:: Starting full system upgrade...

Give me a moment and i’ll open a topic for it … Thanks :slight_smile:

Only needed when the module checksums change:

Not needed for all kernels ^^

Opened a topic regarding the issue i was mentioning:


#9

on unstable I get “wobbly” fonts in grub menu… don’t know if it’s the same issue as yours…
I can try to upload a video… should i do it here or in the thread you opened?

ok, not the same issue… will post here, soon…


#10

I had skipped the past few Testing updates in my Tower’s VM KDE, but tonight i tried to catch up. I updated my VM’s mirror-list several times, & finally got one which has synched with the latest updates, then i proceeded to update [in Konsole].

It seemed to go ok, but post VM reboot there’s two issues:

  1. The new KeePassXC 2.3.0 runs fine naked [& has a great new tab-view feature], but freezes when run in Firejail. This will be a problem with the FJ KPXC profile, not KPXC’s fault, nor Manjaro’s fault. I am only mentioning this here as a FYI for other users of KPXC with FJ. I have not had time yet to solve the problem by tweaking the KPXC FJ profile.

  2. My VM runs kernel 4.15.7. Its Shared Folder function still works fine, but its Shared Clipboard function has broken. I suspected that i might need to reinstall the Guest Additions, but when i checked, it is still only 5.2.7 according to Dolphin when its virtual ISO is loaded in the VM’s virtual drive. As far as i can ascertain from reading the past few Testing Updates threads, it should now be 5.2.8. Indeed when i check the VM’s Pamac i see that its linux415-virtualbox-host-modules is 5.2.8-1. How can Pamac & Dolphin be contradicting each other? Should i manually uninstall the VM’s current GA [whatever version it really is], then manually reinstall it?


#11

not “wobbly” more like blinking… I could live with it.
Just wasn’t there before and maybe it helps…

#12

Same problem here and it carries over to stable update.


#13

@alreadyon and @beardedragon - Probably on UEFI systems those 2 menus get overlay-ed better, with a slight pixel flickering, but on LEGACY BIOS (older) those two do not match. Also because of VESA with only 16MB or 32MB, all goes in slow motion and do not overlap perfectly … I’m just speculating.
Chroot-ing the install and installing/reinstalling/updating grub doesn’t help.


#14

I am using Legacy on a UEFI capable system.


#15

me too… update-grub also didn’t help…


#16

but thanks for your input, @bogdancovaciu!


#17

Mine is an old American Megatrends BIOS no uefi at all … Still didn’t find something similar, nor a fix for it. Can’t replicate it in VBox install and now i’m going to do some test on even older machine than my main rig.


#18

Grub screen problem. Duplicate menu.


#19

On my main computer

A. New issue

I also got a problem with my Grub boot menu, although it’s not the same problem as bogdancovaciu or alreadyon got.

When I press the Up or the Down key to navigate in Grub menu, sometime, a part of the menu appears randomly on the screen for a very brief moment, then disappears. Here’s what it looks like when it happens.

For me, it has no impact on the usability of the menu: I can still select any entry I want or enter commands in Grub shell. It just a visual glitch that is a bit annoying.

I use pure UEFI mode on my main computer; I don’t use CSM/legacy mode at all.

Kernel 4.14 (using kernel-alive)
