Changes made to Grub 2.04-6

Due to some bugs with the Fedora patches in regard of BTRFS we are using now the Ubuntu approach to hide the menu via GRUB_TIMEOUT.

These are the current options to style the timeout:

GRUB_TIMEOUT_STYLE=countdown
GRUB_TIMEOUT_STYLE=hidden
GRUB_TIMEOUT_STYLE=menu

You may want to double-check your settings in /etc/default/grub

We also provide a new package called grub-vanilla. Learn more about it here.


Thunderbird 68.0 disabled my extensions!

Thunderbird 68 changes the way extensions work in line with Firefox 68. This will mean incompatible extensions are disabled.

The Thunderbird developers have made it as easy as possible for extensions developers to update the extensions to get them working again.

However, it will take time for extensions to 1) be updated and 2) make their way onto AMO for download.

You have two basic choices:

  1. Add IgnorePkg = thunderbird to your /etc/pacman.conf until your "critical" extension is updated
  2. Keep checking for updates for your "critical" extension, and possibly pester the developer to update it

Option 2 is the more proactive.


pip behaves differently

pip now includes by default the --user flag for all operations.


Asian/CJK characters display as blocks

Install noto-fonts-cjk or another font of your choice. The problem seems related to a ttf-droid 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.

tensorflow>=1.14.0-5 update requires manual intervention

From Konstantin Gizdov on August 20, 2019

The tensorflow packages prior to version 1.14.0-5 were missing some soname links. This has been fixed in 1.14.0-5, so the upgrade will need to overwrite the untracked soname links created by ldconfig. If you get an errors like so.

tensorflow: /usr/lib/libtensorflow.so.1 exists in filesystem
tensorflow: /usr/lib/libtensorflow_cc.so.1 exists in filesystem
tensorflow: /usr/lib/libtensorflow_framework.so.1 exists in filesystem

when updating, use

pacman -Suy --overwrite=usr/lib/libtensorflow.so.1,usr/lib/libtensorflow_cc.so.1,usr/lib/libtensorflow_framework.so.1

to perform the upgrade.

I must be one lucky user - I have not seen any of the issues :slight_smile: (unstable)

Arch bugtracker on systemd

i've had those unmount error on 3 systems, but that was the only "problem". didn't affect stability, was just an error message when powering down.

with the "new" old systemd no problems so far.

Still have to wait for this update as the recovery of some data from a faulty HDD keeps me away from doing other stuff. Just wanted to say kudos for downgrading systemd :slight_smile:

Hum, didn't have to do that. Downgrade went fine. (xfce)
Good stuff.

Per my Nasty `fstats` cpu% bug since Testing Update 2019-09-06., this version is good for my Firetools' fstats ... cpu% stays low now.

I clicked no issues, but, per my usual practice, I did not downgrade any packages.

Neither have I. I'll stick with 243 for the time being.

...nice, I like light-locker which refuses to work with systemd 243.

Everything seems fine. Same procedure as last time.
Xfce Architect, kernels 5.3 and 4.19, terminal

having no issues (that i noticed so far) with 243 - so no reason for me to downgrade, is there?

As with most of these scenarios, if you keep it, you'll be responsible for keeping an eye on it in the event that future updates conflict with it. The devs can only do so much to support multiple versions of the same software, and if they have to choose between making something seamless for stable vs testing, it's usually assumed that the testers know what they're doing and can manually make changes accordingly.

The safer option is to downgrade and keep your packages in sync with the manjaro repos.

Any user of i3blocks? Got broken this time :cry: any alternatives, it was such a good bar.

My issue with booting into a black screen is solved with the downgrade.

haven't thought about it that way - thank you! :smiley:

Update with downgrade seems to be fine on my end.

I have no any issue on KDE testing with kernel 5.2.

it's Ok Xfce(Gtk3+) + kernel 5.2.14 + Steam(OpenGl) +Nvidia drivers 430.40 + systemd 242.108 + virtualbox ( required use of vboxSVGA if guests installed )
