#1

Hi community,

welcome to another testing update of Manjaro. This time our most effort went into updating our toolchain with GCC v8.1.0. This needed updates or recompiling of all our kernels.

Other than that, we had the following updates:

  • LibreOffice is now at v6.0.4
  • KDE Apps got updated to v18.04.1
  • Gnome is now at v3.28.2, which is the last point release of that series
  • Small fixes to Cinnamon got added as well
  • Last, we updated Palemoon and Firefox with the latest security fixes

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.

#2

This is a wiki post; please edit as necessary.


gcc54 and gcc5 are in conflict.

For those using CUDA, if this error comes up, run the update from terminal
sudo pacman -Syyu
and type YES to replace gcc5 with gcc54


#3

Everything fine after the reboot. Everything is running, no problems. Thanks for the good work.


#4

NOTE, 4.15.18 is the last release of the 4.15.y kernel.
It is now end-of-life.

It is recommend to move on to linux416-series.
Use followed cmd to do that: 'sudo mhwd-kernel -i linux416'
[mint@deepin ~]$ sudo mhwd-kernel -i linux416
Error: You can't reinstall your current kernel. Please use 'pacman -Syu' instead to update.

That confuses me now.* pacman -Syu is ok? :wink: Fixed with

sudo mhwd-kernel -r linux415
  • found Markdown syntax :smiley:

Everything else is fine :slight_smile:

#5

try sudo mhwd-kernel -r linux415 :wink: Your system only sees that an EOL kernel is still installed, which can cause problems for example when kernel packages like the nvidia driver or wifi drivers are updated (the update will fail because of an installed EOL kernel).

So far, so good.

GVFS bug is now fixed in this testing update! :grinning:

gvfs             1.36.1-1             1.36.2-1

Thanks for updating Sublime Text. That new version message was making me :nauseated_face:

On my main computer

A. New issues

A minor annoyance: on VLC Media Player (package : vlc 3.0.1-2), when I hover the timeline with the mouse while I’m watching a video in fullscreen mode, the panel shows up over the video. It shouldn’t do that. Here’s a screenshot of what’s happening; although my cursor is not visible on the screenshot, it was on the timeline.

Screenshot from main computer (Testing) - Before workaround

When the cursor is somewhere else, no problem though.

On Stable, currently, this problem is not present. However, we can’t see the bubble that tell the time you’re hovering. Although not perfect (if it worked properly, we would both see the bubble and not see the panel when hovering the timeline), it’s less inconvenient than the problem I’m describing here. Here’s an example of the current situation in Stable branch with a screenshot that comes from my laptop. (Package: vlc 3.0.1-2 on Stable branch too.)

Screenshot from laptop (Stable)

I found a workaround for this: downgrading muffin package from version 3.8.1-1 to version 3.8.0-1. Fortunately for me, I still have all my old dusty packages in /var/cache/pacman/pkg, so downgrading this package was a simple task (just double-click on the old package to replace the currently installed muffin package with the old muffin package with Pamac). After the downgrade, I have the same (not perfect, but less annoying) result than I had on my laptop that uses Stable branch.

Screenshot from main computer (Testing) - After workaround

However, this is only temporary, and I can’t keep an old version of muffin package for too long. Soon or later, I will have to upgrade this package to a more recent version.

Currently, on Stable branch, the most recent version of muffin package available is 3.8.0-1.

huge update, there is no problem so far

for a couple of days when using linux 4.16.7 my bluetooth sometimes dissapear randomly, but its not happen after updated to 4.16.8, will report back if the bluetooth problem happened again


#11

I don’t think it’s a Cinnamon issue. It’s happening on Xfce also without muffin.


[Testing Update] 2018-05-12 - Muffin, Virtualbox, Firefox Development, Deepin
#12

On my machine the update of gcc-libs to 8.1.0 broke numpy (python-numpy 1.14.3-1), which depends on libgfortran.so.4. As a temporary workaround I have copied the corresponding file from gcc-libs-7.3.1 into the ld.so search path. I can imagine that other numerics related packages are affected, too.

Everything else is fine. Thanks for the good work!


#13

It is listed as make dependency. Maybe the package maintainers need to be informed about it.


#14

After update keyboard unresponsive cant even get into tty. Tried both 4.16 kernel and 4.14 kernel. Cannot interact with Gnome shell at all. This is a Lenovo T430 running Manjaro Gnome Testing. Boots normally, login is good, brings you to graphical desktop. Cursor and mouse work but keyboard does not, neither does the mouse allow any interaction with the actual shell, left click, right click, nothing. Not sure how to proceed as I have never had a problem with getting to tty. Any assistance would be appreciated.


#15

@nadb: you may try to start in user level 3 by selecting the boot option in grub, press CTRL+E and add a three at the end of the boot option. With CTRL+X you may start it. Other option would be to use a live media to check which packages got updated on your end.


#16

Got into tty at GDM login. Logged in, in tty, resyncing mirrors, update sucessful. Problem still exists.

Repeating process and reinstalling Gnome packages. Conflict between nautilus and nautilus-typeahead. Removing nautilus.
Conflict between nautilus-extension-typeahead and nautilus-extension. Removing nautilus-extension.
Updating again. No updates. Shutdown.

Booting, Logged in. Problem still exists.

And


#17

@nadb: please install budgie-desktop or xfce4 to see if it is a Gnome issue. So when you still have keyboard in TTY it seems to be a DE issue.


#18

I tried installing xf86-video-intel. Modesetting not the issue.
Attempted to enable wayland. Fails to enable. Option not available in GDM. GDM might have issue.

Installing xfce4 xfce4-goodies. Might as well have a back up DE, and per philm.

Xfce4 works. Looks like a Gnome issue. Something in the update
.


#19

That is why I use it as default. Since you have a working DE now, you may check which packages got updated after the last working state. /var/log/pacman.log is your friend.


#20

I finally tracked down the problem. Apparently something is wrong with the gnome-shell-extensions, and gnome-shell-extension- packages. Removing them and installing extensions from gnome.org and login works, along with the actual DE. Install any of those packages during a session and everything ceases to work. All you can do is move the cursor around. I thought the nodejs update might have caused an issue but that was not the case.

And nevermind a faulty extension was the cause. Workspaces to Dock. Manual installation from github is recommended. This fixed the issue.
