@xabbu, @sueridgepipe, @Th3Z0ne: does the current systemd version works now as expected and similar to v237.64 we currently have in stable branch? The cryptsetup issue is another one and was already present in v237 series. Therefore I’m almost happy with this and ready for a new stable snap.


Smooth update on KDE edition with kernels 4.14 and 4.15.


All good: linux415+zfs+nvidia+cinnamon


Yes, I don’t see any error messages on screen during shutdown with systemd 238.0-6. Also systemd doesn’t crash anymore at shutdown or reboot.

The cryptsetup issue is indeed a different topic.


No anomalies detected. Bzzrt: :robot:


I fixed some last issue with grub. Now it supports Multiple early Initrd-Images. Also the 17.1.7-rc5 of XFCE can be again installed on EFI.


It’s all Good, thanks team.

No problems KDE with 4.15 kernel


So, I have identified the issue I have since the update of 2018-03-14. It seems that this bug is back: https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=367541

That is: if your digital clock is showing the events from your PIM TODO list, and you have at least one TODO without a starting date, an infinite loop is triggered and your plasma eats up all the memory in a bunch of seconds, until the kernel kills it.
Workaround: disable the PIM plugin in the digital clock settings and lose this useful functionality.

@philm: do you know whether some commit was “lost” in the update of March 14th? I didn’t have this issue before then. In the KDE bug page (link above) there are comments stating that this fix will not be merged before April 2018, but it seems to me that some kind of fix was indeed merged in the releases before the one of March 14th…




Smooth update on kde with 4.14


Nothing is lost. The fix got merged only in master and is not yet in 17.12 series of KDE-Apps.

Check if kdepim-addons-17.12.3-1.1 fixes your issue.


This package is a quick-release security fix. It should be overwritten by 59.0.1-1 from the next unstable snap, assuming that happens before a testing->stable snap.

If that isn’t going to happen then 59.0.1-1 can be brought over from unstable.

@philm, which do you prefer here? New snap or cherry-pick?


Last two update solved connection at login. Thank you :slightly_smiling_face:


Hi @philm, yes, the new kdepim-addons package fixes the issue :slight_smile:




It doesn’t matter, as long as our build also includes the distribution.ini file.


Why is every manjaro-system update is overwriting my sddm config?


what does this actual fix?

	pacman -Q sddm &> /tmp/cmd1
	if [ "$(grep 'sddm' /tmp/cmd1 | cut -d' ' -f1)" == "sddm" ]; then 
		if [ "$(vercmp $(grep 'sddm' /tmp/cmd1 | cut -d' ' -f2) 0.17.0-5)" -le 0 ]; then
			msg "Fix sddm upgrade ..."
			rm /var/lib/pacman/db.lck &> /dev/null
			if [ -e "/etc/sddm.conf" ]; then
				mv /etc/sddm.conf /etc/sddm.backup
			pacman --noconfirm -S sddm
			if [ -e "/etc/sddm.conf" ]; then
				mv /etc/sddm.conf /etc/sddm.conf.pacnew
			if [ -e "/etc/sddm.backup" ]; then
				mv /etc/sddm.backup /etc/sddm.conf

rename config
reinstall sddm
move config file back
why manual creating pacnew, pacsav files? shouldn’t that be done by pacman ?


How did you do that?
