[Testing Update] 2019-11-22 - Kernels, Mesa 19.2.5

Hello community,

I am happy to announce another Testing Update.


Our work for the Pinebook Pro continues. We managed to get sound working properly now

With this we have new Mesa drivers and latest Kernels. Grub should now auto-update with the new alpm-hook.

Some feature-updates:

  • Latest Kernel updates
  • Mesa is at 19.2.5

If you like following latest Plasma development you may also like to check out our current version of manjaro-kde-vanilla, which we build on a regular basis against kde-git master packages.

As always we appreciate your input and feedback for the updates.


Our current supported kernels:

  • linux316 3.16.76
  • linux44 4.4.202
  • linux49 4.9.202
  • linux414 4.14.155
  • linux419 4.19.85
  • linux53 5.3.12
  • linux54 5.4.0-rc7 (not all modules build yet!)
  • linux419-rt 4.19.72_rt26
  • linux52-rt 5.2.21_rt13

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

All good here :wink:

No arch package updates this time? Only kernels and mesa?

Hi, I am from stable branch, but today I however received the new grub. But seems that the hook has not been triggered (is located at /usr/share/libalpm/hooks/99-grub.hook). It's content:

[Trigger]
Type = File
Operation = Install
Operation = Upgrade
Operation = Remove
Target = usr/lib/modules/*/vmlinuz
Target = boot/vmlinuz*

[Action]
Description = Updating Grub-Bootmenu
When = PostTransaction
Exec = /usr/bin/update-grub

From pacman.log:

[ALPM] upgraded grub (2.04-7 -> 2.04-8)
[ALPM] transaction completed
[ALPM] running 'systemd-update.hook'...
[ALPM] running 'texinfo-install.hook'...

There is no track of grub.hook.

@philm could you please comit the kernel 5.3.12-1 in gitlab?
thanks

i don't see a matching nvidia 440 package for the new 419 kernel. was that not needed this time?

OK now I know the issue. I missed 440 for 414 and 419. Seems I've to update my scripts. Also Mesa will be updated.

Looks great. The desktop is very responsive and quick (Xfce, Kernel 5.3.12). No issue with Steam and Wine (Nv 440). Move to the fast Brave v1.0 browser and it's even better.
Thanks philm, The Mangy Man.

Oh sorry for my French. Philm the Man...jaro Man. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

I'm getting some regression with recent updates over Kernel 5.3, since the 5.3.10.
I'm getting random freezes in the system with time duration between 0.5 ~ 3.0 seconds.

If I go back to 5.3.10, the freezes stop.

Does anybody have the same issues?

There is talk about some freezes related to intel graphics: Manjaro Keeps Freezing Temporarily and Randomly

I updated the nvidia drivers for linux419 and linux414, updated Mesa to 19.2.6 and added some fixes to Octopi.

You must install, upgrade, or remove a kernel to trigger 99-grub.hook.

@philm.
thanks for the comit of kernel 5.3.12 but the aufs patch file aufs5.3-20191021.patch is missing in the comit.

Will push it later.

I received this update 2 times. The exactly same packages. Why?
