[Testing Update] 2018-05-25 - Kernels, Nvidia, Xorg-Server, Mesa, Browsers, Deepin, Calamares, Pamac



Since I worked on our testing branch without announcing anything on the 19th of May, it seemed I’d broken some systems (see below). Therefore I’d briefly track my work log for the coming days here. Ongoing updates may be followed here.

Issues we had on the 19th:

For me it’s O.K. in my system with Xfce4. Looks like everything is working. Anyway I will wait:

I have mesa 18.0.4-0 installed and is working.


This was the only thing i got as error, fixed by removing the files and making the update again

lib32-wayland: /usr/lib32/libwayland-egl.so exists in filesystem
lib32-wayland: /usr/lib32/libwayland-egl.so.1 exists in filesystem
lib32-wayland: /usr/lib32/libwayland-egl.so.1.0.0 exists in filesystem
lib32-wayland: /usr/lib32/pkgconfig/wayland-egl.pc exists in filesystem


I did a check on which package owned this, and wonder if we should wait until lib-32mesa is updated?

pacman -Qo /usr/lib32/libwayland-egl.so
/usr/lib32/libwayland-egl.so is owned by lib32-mesa 18.1.0-0


Here same as bogdancovaciu(thanks for posting that btw), removed the Wayland files he outlined-- I received the same error message as did he, removed the files and the pacman -Syyu update went fine. I went through the business yesterday with Wayland and recovered from that(Wayland/mesa dependency) so after removing the offending files no problem.

Third wave of this update went well, but i was wondering if i should wait, or keep checking them as they come and install ?

resolving dependencies...
looking for conflicting packages...

lib32-mesa has been successfully fixed in unstable :smile: No longer get conflict.


So far so good. This awful update was done right :slight_smile:


When we have some showstopper bugs in unstable I’ve to use testing similar and therefore it become also unstable some times …


Ouch! At least, I know that now. Thanks for the info.

And my inxi:

fixed the lib32-wayland issue with the --force parameter on pacman -Syu. So far so good except that it tells me that it doesn’t want to update linux-firmware and linux417 because I have newer one installed.
Unstable branch with mesa 18.1, xorg-server 1.20.


For those 2 packages you have to downgrade to upgrade as @philm said in another thread about the firmaware. Do as I did:

sudo pacman -Sy linux-firmware

which does the upgrade :stuck_out_tongue: for the firmware.

==> Software upgrade (new version) :
core/linux-firmware 20180507.8fc2d4e-1 -> 20180518.2a9b2cf-1
extra/mesa          18.0.3-1           -> 18.0.4-0
extra/pamac         6.3.1-1            -> 6.3.2-1
extra/wayland       1.14.0-1           -> 1.15.0-0
multilib/lib32-mesa 18.0.3-1           -> 18.0.4-0

Manjaro Testing, Kernel 4.16.x, GNOME w/ GDM, nVidia 1060 GTX (w/ Proprietary Drivers) on System 76 Oryx Pro 3.

Issues to Report: None, GNOME and GDM both started as per usual.


My “third wave” went fine as well…no issues at all 52 packages updated, restarted, no messages on boot other than the usual. My inxi is in an earlier post here.


From reading those other threads, it seems as long as mesa 18.0.4 and wayland 1.15.0 are updating together, everything should be fine (maybe also the lib32 versions). They did, and it did.

Except I got:
warning: linux-firmware: local (20180518.86d39f8-1) is newer than core (20180518.2a9b2cf-1)


fixed it.

This is on linux 416 Xfce btw.


Upgrading from terminal on 2 machines with KDE edition… No problem so far, rebooted and all seems OK. It was too difficult to wait and keep looking at the red octopus… :innocent:


Ah, what an admirable, intrepid crew! When told not to update, you take it as a challenge. Full speed ahead, and damn the torpedoes!

(Not that great at taking orders, though…)


This was a versioning problem in the repos, actually you have to downgrade to upgrade. :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:


Aye, aye, cap’n! :wink: Taking the plunge now…fingers crossed…

Edit: So far, so good!


Whoops, did not read about problems, update booted fine.
