gnome-shell-extension-desktop-icons

the pkgver 19.10.1 ship with an hook to remove the capability from gnome-shell. A message is present during install but essentially you need to reboot the system to show correctly the icons in the desktop. More info here

Intel.... They can't catch a break huh

Everything seems fine here.

I did have an issue booting with kernel 5.4 ("can't find UUID <boot uuid>"), but it was my fault:

There was a grub.pacnew, which I'd completely forgotten to check, and it turns out at least one kernel parameter now has a different syntax.

rd.udev.log-priority  # old syntax
udev.log_priority     # new syntax

So I changed that part in /etc/default/grub and then re-ran update-grub and now it boots no problem.

Without the microcode update the kernel alone being updated does very little. Arch has the microcode updated, it would be a good idea to fast-track that also.

Right, I prepared it but forgot to upload. Let's see what else is in the queue.

Easily done. That’s what we’re all here for, to help catch these little mistakes :wink:

The nvidia driver update seems to break steam for me. I tried to switch to intel and steam still works, only stop working in nvidia and only after this update. Please let me know what log might help.

Is that something to be worry about or just a mirror out of sync ?

Mirror is out of sync, mesa-19.2.4 is an emergency update.

How powerfull is that Pinebook Pro?

LMGTFY
The new Pinebook Pro is capable of playing 4K videos and performs as a decent low-end desktop computer like Raspberry Pi 4.

Ok can it run Gnome?:slight_smile:

I am asking because my Gnome takes 5GB with just few apps opened so it will not run smoothly, very likely.

  1. Unused memory is wasted memory.
  2. But also, wtf?

If that pinebook "pro" has just 4GB....

shok

Meanwhile KDE Plasma is like:
Screenshot_20191116_204445
Oh, that's with Chrome (42 tabs) and quite a heavy game running.

Oh you misunderstand me. 5Gb was the WTF. When I rand Gnome 3.32 made it go down from 1.2 to 750-ish Mb.

I mean with Firefox I was back up to about 1.7 Gb but that's the browser's fault, not Gnome.
