[Testing Update] 2019-06-10 - Kernels, KDE Frameworks, KDE-Git

I like the guy voting "I have a problem" without actually detailing his problem.

Also, I have not followed the most recent events on Testing so, is there something holding back a release of updates in Stable?

It looks like no support for linux50. I have installed linux51, so should I remove linux50 or it's ok keeping on system?

kernel 5.0 is end of life so yes you may as well remove it

PSA - Remember to boot into a different kernel before removing one though :wink:

Missed yesterdays update so today's update included that one.
Cinnamon, 5.1 thru terminal - No issues.
Xfce, same - No issues.
Removed 5.0 with the kernel tool first, I had it as a backup. Now running 5.1 on both with 4.19 as a backup kernel.

I also missed yesterday's, but no problems. Running Xfce, kernel 5.1 on an HP Elite4 laptop, Intel i3 and graphics. Everything seems to work fine, including suspend, which has been a problem on a few kernels

Nvidia 430.14 drivers segfault when trying to use CUDA/NVENC. Things like that? But I don't know if Phil worries about that kind of thing. Probably just busy.

There is also this Thunar/gtk3 bug but no feedback from anyone so maybe it is just me.

I have no problems with Nvidia 430.14, but don't know when or where I would use CUDA/NVENC. Are you compiling code?

Currently in Montreal. However, there seems to be a new 430 driver release out there. We will see.

The most common use is probably screen recording. It's very efficient. But I use CUDA hardware decoding with mpv for reasons probably not relevant to most people. VDPAU hardware decoding still works, but it has problems now also.

I can confirm the behaviour (with whatever is left of xfce4.12 on manjaro, using gtk3-1:3.24.8+177+gae2ef1472c-1) - a slight difference here from the image in your link is that no name appears at all in the tool for the final file. Renaming does actually take place properly though. Never bulk renamed before...

Suggest it might be worth querying upstream with the Xfce project: https://bugzilla.xfce.org/ (or https://forum.xfce.org/viewforum.php?id=12)

That may be mpv-specific...I've tested both 4k and 60fps videos on vlc using vdpau acceleration without issues. (Although regrettably I don't have a video that's both 4k and 60fps, h.264 and hevc 8-bit were the codecs I've tested.)

I have been having a strange problem on the current 5.2 rc kernels. I have a Logitech M220 mouse that when booting with any of the 5.2 rc kernels will sometimes not allow the kernel to boot when the receiver is plugged in and other times it will boot just fine. Also the mouse will not work at boot but then after 3-5 mins it will start working about 75% of the time.

I have changed no settings in the last several months. Any other kernel series I have had installed has had no issues as the mouse behaves as expected. Kernels I have used on my current install are 4.19, 4.20, 5, and 5.1 with no issues.

The following is in my logs when booting with the 5.2 rc kernels and is not when booting any other kernel.

Using VLC is not a satisfactory solution for me. But it is fine. I will stay with Nvidia 418.74 for now. My workflow is more important than a higher version number.

The only cuda program is have works fine, no issues.

I have no luck getting the 5.2 kernels to boot, flashing hyphen or underscore in the corner now, before it was Failed to load. If you call that progress?

I have no internet with kernel linux5.2-rc4

Use

~] >> sudo mhwd-kernel -l
available kernels:
   * linux316
   * linux318
   * linux414
   * linux419
   * linux420
   * linux44
   * linux49
   * linux50
   * linux51

5.2rc4 working fine, zfs 0.8.1 now supports it.
