Pamac-Qt is not compatible to 9.0 API of Pamac

Quick question if you don't mind. The "no catalyst module!" mentioned for kernel 5.2 & 5.3 is this related to AMD Graphic Cards or will this have an negative impact when using e.g. RX480 card?
I'm asking because I've the above mentioned card and a 4k Monitor and when I use either kernel 5.2 or 5.3 my Desktop freezes and I see following error in the logs.

kernel: amdgpu 0000:26:00.0: GPU fault detected: 147 0x0802c802 for process plasmashell pid 985 thread plasmashel:cs0 pid 1208
kernel: [drm:amdgpu_job_timedout [amdgpu]] *ERROR* ring gfx timeout

I don't have this issue when I use kernel 4.19.
Apologies if this is not the right place for posting this question.

Catalyst is an old proprietary driver for old GPUs from AMD. If you do not use Catalyst at all, it is absolutely not a concern for you

Catalyst is not related to AMDGPU.

Brilliant thanks for the swift response :slightly_smiling_face:

All went smoothly except for this entry during the update:

(10/21) Updating 32-bit fontconfig cache...
Fontconfig warning: "/etc/fonts/conf.avail/05-reset-dirs-sample.conf", line 6: unknown element "reset-dirs"

update went fine, 5.4 kernel working with intel mode. not with nvidia but i expected that anyway since there's no nvidia drivers built yet for 5.4.

only got the font error mentioned by @GHammer

1/2 OT:

LibreOffice 6.3.2 still missing...? :expressionless:

It's not in Arch yet https://www.archlinux.org/packages/extra/x86_64/libreoffice-fresh/

New testing install, why are we still using nvidia v: 418.88?

because the 435.xx drivers, while fixing a cuda issue and introducing render offloading also has some undesirable performance issues. 418.xx and 435.xx work with cuda but i guess 430.xx does not? or not fully? :man_shrugging: either way, both 418.xx and 430.xx outperform the 435.xx (my personal opinion).

so now we have more choice :grin:

Running nvidia v: 435.21 W/O cuda or problems, go figure . IMO

Update went fine except for the previously mentioned 32-bit fonts issue.

no new issues, patience is the key for libreoffice, missing kernel 5.4 modules and fontconfig guys :wink:

Can we switch from Manjaro stable to Manjaro Testing ? If yes, how ?

you can, it's easy

sudo pacman-mirrors --api -B testing && pacman -Syyu

do the same to switch back but put stable instead of testing

The command @anon71843593 posted can also be found in the Manjaro Wiki. :wink:

In fact it will be better with:
sudo pacman-mirrors --api -B testing && sudo pacman -Syyu

I couldn't recall if the second sudo was actually required or not. Typically if you enter the commands one straight after the other in terminal you can get away without sudo for pacman -Syyu. There's a brief timeout for sudo rights to make it easier to enter such multiple commands so I thought the two arguments joined together should honour that too. Anyway, I take it you have successfully switched and updated then.

I am compiling from source once a month :stuck_out_tongue:
