[Testing Update] 2019-08-23 - Nvidia 430.40, Certbot, Steam

Hello community,

I am happy to announce another Testing Update. Mostly we have Nvidia, certbot and Steam updates with this one.

Update news

This update holds the following changes:

  • Nvidia drivers got downgraded to 430.40 again. This brings back the CUDA regression, but was needed due other isssues with 435 series reported.
  • updates to certbot and our steam clients
  • The usual upstream updates
  • Latest efforts by KDE can be reviewed via our current KDE-Dev ISO or current KDE-Vanilla ISO
  • Manjaro Juhraya ISOs got updated, including flatpak and snap support pre-activated. Office can be selected during installation between libreoffice-still or freeoffice: XFCE, KDE, Gnome

Give us the usual feedback and let us know what you think about this update.

libbloom>=1.6-2 update requires manual intervention

(Taken from Arch Linux website, 2019-07-11 by Felix Yan. Source: https://www.archlinux.org/news/libbloom16-2-update-requires-manual-intervention/)

The libbloom package prior to version 1.6-2 was missing a soname link. This has been fixed in 1.6-2, so the upgrade will need to overwrite the untracked soname link created by ldconfig. If you get an error

libbloom: /usr/lib/libbloom.so.1 exists in filesystem

when updating, use

pacman -Suy --overwrite usr/lib/libbloom.so.1

to perform the upgrade.

All working well for me: linxu52+zfs+nvidia+cinnamon

@philm:
Thank you for adding the Ryzen gen 3 sensor patches. The sensors work very well now. :+1:

I found an issue with kernel 5.2.9-2 and the command sensors-detect

1# sensors-detect 
Sysfs not mounted?

Because I detected the sensors before this update with my self-compiled kernel, the sensors command itself is working fine. It is just the sensors-detect that is failing.

This does not happen with kernel 4.19 or 5.2.9-1.

Point me to your patches and configs. Will try to double check also the 5.2.10-rc1 patch...

Got an error when installing lib32-libindicator-gtk2 -

Unable to open directory usr/lib32/gio/modules: Error opening directory “usr/lib32/gio/modules”: No such file or directory

OK, we have to check.

The nvidia package is getting downgraded?

I can only get back to that later in the afternoon today.

I have an issue : my PC normally takes around 10-15 seconds to boot (SSD) and with this update it takes between 2 and 3 minutes...

Edit : reverting to stable branch indeed fixes the issue.

Please check which packages got updated on your end:

tac /var/log/pacman.log

I see that nvidia driver got downgraded. Right now I'm using the new driver, 435, to test the prime offload feature and haven't notice any problem. Is suggested to downgrade anyway or it's safe to remains on 435?

I think you can stay with 435 if it works well for you.

You're not going to get a choice because an epoch was used:

Argh.

Why we're bumping epochs in unstable and testing I don't understand. People should be capable of downgrading if they're running testing.

"Hmm, this package is showing a warning that it's newer than the repo, why is that...?"
Checks the announcement thread.
"Ah, OK so I'll (downgrade|ignore) it!"

Thank you for mentioning it, completeley missed that... IgnorePkg here we come :frowning:

Manjaro deepin:

Hi @jonathon as I am updating freecad-git too, I have some extra time : )
I also would prefer keep using nvidia 435 at testing, as I am not experiencing any problem.

So there is no way to do it?

I will wait till a new nvidia update then.:expressionless:

Yeah you are right, I'd prefer to see something like linux-52-nvidia-beta in addition to the previous driver and in Testing/Unstable only. 435.17 worked flawlessly for me, however, speaking on that offload thing, I can't see much difference with Bumblebee on my weak dGPU, so I switched back without any regret, because, if no much difference, I'd choose more battery-friendly setup, which is Bumblebee.

You can try nvidia-beta-dkms from AUR, it's 435.71 now.

As I have Pamac busy building freecad -git I can not check it now @openminded .

I search for it from browser And saw an older version from archlinux.
Is that some kind of beta nvidia package @openminded?
:thinking:
