[Testing Update] 2018-05-01 - BFQ Scheduler (v4.16, v4.17), Vulkan, Hyper

update
testing

#1

Hi community,

welcome to another testing update of Manjaro. Mostly we worked yesterday on our toolchain. This includes the following changes:

The new version of glibc removes support for NIS and NIS+. The default /etc/nsswitch.conf file provided by filesystem package already reflects this change. Please make sure to merge pacnew file if it exists prior to upgrade.

NIS functionality can still be enabled by installing libnss_nis package. There is no replacement for NIS+ in the official repositories.

Additionally we updated pam. pam 1.3.0-2 no longer ships pam_unix2 module and pam_unix_*.so compatibility symlinks. Before upgrading, review PAM configuration files in the /etc/pam.d directory and replace removed modules with pam_unix.so. Users of pam_unix2 should also reset their passwords after such change. Defaults provided by pambase package do not need any modifications.

Other changes are:

  • added BFQ scheduler to kernel series v4.16 and v4.17
  • fixed some bluetooth device issues in kernel series v4.16 and v4.17
  • updated some Vulkan packages
  • users of Hyper may need to “downgrade” to the stable version, as we removed the epoch

Our effort and all the needed information about the new security risk can be found here.

So please report back and give us feedback for given changes made to our repositories. Users of our 32-bit Distro should read this.

Check if your mirror has already synced:

There are currently only two mirrors which are up to date for Testing. Check the following link to see when your mirror has synced: http://repo.manjaro.org/

Edit: Sorry, just have seen that link is provided at the end of the first post.


#6

Mirror propagation has been an issue lately, now even netzspielplatz is tardy.

EDIT :

Just manually added this to the top of my mirrorlist file to get this update

## Country : Germany
Server = https://manjaro.moson.eu/testing/$repo/$arch

After more than an hour it should be available through more than 2 mirrors.


#7

Are updates pushed to the mirrors or do mirrors update on their own?


#8

Mirrors check and “pull” any updates at a defined frequency.

Netzspielplatz usually checks every 5 minutes, but all mirrors are configured independently at the discretion of whoever runs them.


#9

Maybe they just changed their update frequency…?


#10

Yes, the sync frequency is up to the one hosting the mirror. Mine (manjaro.moson.eu) updates every 10 minutes from the main one. It could be that mirrors sync from other mirrors rather than the main one (which would increase the delay of getting the latest updates)…

Also notice, the status page repo.manjaro.org is only updated every 20 minutes.


#11

No issue, all work fine. :wink:

Sometimes the Network applet (Cinnamon):
-> icon is stuck in “connecting” even when it connects
-> doesn’t show WiFi networks on click

Update seemed to go ok, except at end [i did it via Pamac] this message appeared:

The subsequent reboot was successful, & afaik it all seems to be running sweetly.

I have never / will never use Samba, & have not knowingly changed filesystem permissions.

Just run…

chmod 700 /var/lib/samba/private/

That’ll set it back to the correct permissions.

Ta, did it ok [needed sudo]. It’d be nice to know though why the problem arose with this update.

I’d actually prefer to remove anything "samba"ish, but apparently “half” of my KDE [figuratively not arithmetically] would go down the drain with it:

I got a warning after running the latest round of updates; I'm confused what to do next

Yesterday, after about 20 months on stable, I finally switched to testing. All good so far, but on my 2 machines the Timeshift launcher won’t work. It asks me as usual the root password then…nothing. The dialog just vanish but Timeshift won’t launch.
As a workaround the GUI does launch if I open a terminal and run sudo timeshift-gtk.
Any clue how to fix this ?

Can’t help you, only confirm the problem here too.

My real Manjaro KDE’s remain in Stable [& their TS still run fine], but since January i’ve run KDE Testing in a VM. For all that time it [ditto my reals] have had Timeshift installed. It definitely used to launch fine from menu in the VM, but you’re right, now it does not. Using the Application Menu’s launcher in Konsole reveals:

[kdemeoz@Manjaro_KDE_VM ~]$ timeshift-launcher

(((at this point the root password dialog box appears as usual, but then:)))

Unable to init server: Could not connect: Connection refused

(timeshift-gtk:25733): Gtk-WARNING **: 15:42:09.267: cannot open display: 
[kdemeoz@Manjaro_KDE_VM ~]$

As i use KDE i then tried this in Konsole:
kdesu timeshift-gtk
…which like you then resulted in an apparently normal Timeshift GUI instance occurring.

Well, at least I am not alone :innocent:
Timeshifht seems to work this way, which at least is what matters for now. Thanks for sharing !
