[Testing Update] 2019-02-22 - Kernels, Systemd, Browsers, Plasma5, Python, Haskell

I saw systemd, so I used the TTY instead of the konsole, and had no issues.

These 244 patches includes “Refuse dbus message paths longer than BUS_PATH_SIZE_MAX
limit
” and “Allocate temporary strings to hold dbus paths on the heap”. Systemd 241 already included “sd-bus: if we receive an invalid dbus message, ignore and proceeed”. That’s all we needed to fix CVE 2019-6454. Perhaps you should consider mention it in the incoming Stable announcement, just in case there’s people worried about it. :slight_smile:

I guess it is a bit poorly written.

Actually, it meant that all regular users have been added to the autologin group so you can use the autologin feature without having to create the group and add users allowed to use autologin to the group by yourself. But you are not forced to use it, and it doesn’t enforce autologin to any user automatically.

The code is in Gitlab: https://gitlab.manjaro.org/packages/community/lightdm-settings/tree/master

It’s merely for convenience, and prevent potential confusion some user would have when trying to use the autologin feature offered by LightDM Settings (a configuration tool that is not in every editions).

It’s not bad, it’s still better than nothing. But the best test IMO is using Testing branch on your machine(s) that you use for real work. Sometime, issues only appear on specific hardware or specific real life configuration, which is hard to reproduce fully on a virtual machine. Also, it helps to cover the most software possible to see if there’s regression in specific applications that not everybody use.

Xfce, using pacman -Suy. No issues at all.

Perfect update this time.
Also mkinitcpio was executed this time so the system actually booted. :smiley:

No issues with Pamac but then, I didn’t have a single issue with all these systemd updates.

btw, are there any plans to get Signal into the official repo? Its still in the AUR. How are packages included in the official repo, what are the criteria?
https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/signal/

You can try to do a package request if you want here.

Openbox, kernel 4.20, encrypted home partition [Virtualbox with EFI enabled] ->

  • Updated via “sudo pacman -Syyu” in tty2
  • No issues at all

openbox from terminal , no issues before or after reboot. :+1:

So many good experiences from others, so after successfully updating my first testing laptop from the TTY, I bravely, but successfully updated my remaining two testing laptops from the konsole.

Updated with Pamac GUI ( :grinning: ). No problem during upgrade (it just went through as it was nothing) and no regression noticed at first glance after reboot.

There might be some ugly outputs on Pamac for lightdm-settings. They are not important, but might cause worries to people who use this package.

@philm If no one sees problem with the current state of Testing, I would just publish it as it is and not risking it more by cumulating more stuff when unnecessary. Plus it contains update for a security vulnerability in systemd + browsers update (it also includes updates for Chromium and Opera, which are not mentioned in the announcement).

I haven’t play around with the new stuff yet. If I notice something, I’ll post it.

As for stability during upgrades, hopefully getting rid of systemd 239.6 once and for all, even if it has been painful for some of us, will improve the situation in the future. :slight_smile:

(Both computers are on Manjaro Cinnamon.)

Per my recent personal policy decision [btw both these VMs have ext4 / & LUKS-encrypted /home]…

Summary

[Stable Update] 2019-02-19 - Kernels, KDE, LibreOffice, Systemd, VirtualBox, Deepin, Qt, Firmwares, Wine

I have two Testing VMs. Used to be one, but recently i cloned it. After reading this interesting discussion, i think from now on i shall keep using tty for the bigger updates in one, but revert to Pamac for all updates in the other… then report back if/when the sky falls in.

…updated my Clone in std Plasma desktop with Pamac. Completed successfully, rebooted successfully, all seems happy. Log:

Next updated the Original, in tty2, with pamac update. Again, all good & happy.

It makes sense on my machine to setup duoboot of testing and stable with two different partitions. I do not use all the software that comes with xfce, like libreoffice-still, preferring fresh, google-chrome in place of firefox, adding smplayer and taking out VLC, epson-inkjet-printer-escpr instead of HP-lip and many other things I remove like ms-online office. I could go on and on, but the point is with testing the changes and upgrades are to the software and kernels I use on stable as well as testing.

On pacman, the function used to print pretty and colorful information works fine. They are just not well supported on Pamac GUI.

Screenshot 1

It does print garbage in pacman.log though, even when using pacman.

Example 1

Example 2

Not the most urgent thing in the world of course (and not something that is worth holding back updates for Stable), but for the sake of readability, should we just get rid of functions like note or msg and just stick with the good old “echo” ?

I updated using pamac-gui and everything went fine, although I have a problem when downloading packages at some time in the end my Internet stops working. I kill pamac and forced a reboot with reboot from the console, I know I shouldn’t do this, but when I’m back and restart pamac-gui the download continue where it stops. And I think the update was done. No problem

Interrupting Pamac (or any package manager) when it is downloading file is not that bad: at worst, one package will be corrupted will have to be redownloaded again.

When a package manager when doing the actual upgrade, now it is dangerous.

I know this, but I waited for 20 minutes and nothing… and when I back the checking for package integrity was ok

No problems, everything works.
LXQT with Kernel 4.20.
Thank you.:grinning:

VM / Xfce / k4.20 / $ sudo pacman -Syu in konsole

Update went fine.

I understand that VM testing is not perfect (thanks to Frog), but for now this is what I can do for Manjaro.
I’m new to Linux world and a bit afraid to change main system to testing branch))
Thanks.

Switched my daily driver from stable to testing to receive more reliable results ->
[KDE, kernel 4.20, luks-encrypted home partition with passphrase on boot]

  • proceeded pacman -Syyuu in tty3
  • no issues during update and after reboot
  • checked most of my additional applications (e.g. nextcloud, phpmyadmin, mariadb, discord) - all work fine
  • will check rest of the applications during the next days - keep you updated

Another thing I discover in pamac is that after I made a compile from AUR and install it, I don’t have the *.pkg.tar.xz in “/var/cache/pacman/pkg/”, in case I want to reinstall this package I need to do an all compilation again. Is this a feature or a bug? I think is good to have it, for when you do a “clear cache”
