[Testing Update] 2019-12-06 - Kernels, Mesa, Firefox, KDE-git

Was something wrong with breath theme ?


Congrats on the wedding!

So far so good, XFCE with Cleanjaro kernel. Latest MESA seems to be working well too. Only played around 5 minutes of Stellaris, but that 5 minutes was fine.

All is well and happy here.
Though I am also curious about the breath theme.

Have noticed that the DKMS virtualbox-guest-modules returns an error on Arch with Latest 419 Kernel. Is there a way to fix or has virtualbox dropped the support for the 419?

octopi 0.9.0-20 solved my issue with octopi cache cleaner... now it works fine. Thanks guys

no issues so far on KDE for me :slight_smile:

Is this the root cause of:

Was an Error like this:

==> dkms install vboxhost/5.2.22_OSE -k 4.14.88-1-lts
Error! Bad return status for module build on kernel: 4.14.88-1-lts (x86_64)
Consult /var/lib/dkms/vboxhost/5.2.22_OSE/build/make.log for more information

But on the newest 4.19 on arch

Have a nice wedding day!

Nothing broken till now.

The update itself went fine, but i'm just mentioning an ongoing bug existing [Manjaro & Arch, at least] ever since systemd left v242 & became v243 & v244.


7/12/19: Once again i have had to downgrade systemd back to the last version before 243. All 243 & 244 versions still conflict with the firejail firetools utility fstats such that with >242 + fstats open + application windows open like thunderbird & firefox [including Dev & Nightly], cpu% continuously spikes to ~80%, passing continually from core to core, together with cpu temperature rising by many degrees above normal. No such bug exists with systemd <243. This is definitely an upstream bug, not Manjaro's or Arch's.

Reproducible crash during shutdown.

Toady I saw that my PC shows a core dump short before finishing the shutdown. The only trace in the log is this entry:

Dez 07 08:46:48 rakete kernel: systemd-shutdow: 65 output lines suppressed due to ratelimiting

It is all going very fast so I had to film the shutdown. The first thing I see are these errors:

I see them for kernel 5.4.2 and 4.19.88. But the following core dump only happens with kernel 5.4.2:

Any idea what that is? Looks like a systemd issue which is causing kernel 5.4.2 to crash.

It looks like it is a reoccurrence of this issue:

I downgraded to

systemd 242.84-2
systemd-libs 242.84-2

It does not show any errors or crashes.


To be honest, I feel a little disappointed that you've abused your position to use this forum for your family announcements. Believe it or not, some of us did not come here to discuss your family situation. Manjaro is a group effort and I clicked on this post to read about a testing update, not your personal life. Congratulations from those who are interested are in order but would have been appropriate in a separate forum post, not in the text of a testing update post. It's not that I don't care, I'm happy that you're happy, it's just not the right place and I feel it's an abuse of our trust. Also, I think marriage is an outdated social institution that I don't believe in.

Let's celebrate Phil's and Trang's wedding today

It feels like I'm expected to be involved in or interested in something when I consented to no such thing. It feels like a violation and an imposition. So just for the record, I don't care about your wedding and it has nothing to do with me.

Edit: Ok, so upon reflection, I think that it's ok for someone to add a personal note to there post and is actually a nice thing or even just to talk about personal stuff, we are humans after all. What I think I objected to specifically was the wording of the caption under the picture. "Let's celebrate Phil's and Trang's wedding today" sounds more like an instruction rather than an opinion or a point of information. I hope I didn't hurt anyone's feelings.

Scrolling with Firefox and Chromium is both choppy on kernel 5.3 since this update.
All is fine with kernel 4.19.

Looks ok here, both ... but I am using Brave now.
K 5.3.15

There is no i18n-pl updated package for firefox 71 :frowning:
Other languages are there.

Isn't it this one:

pamac search firefox-i18n-pl 
firefox-i18n-pl                                 71.0-1  extra 
Polish language pack for Firefox

Yes, I have in testing firefox-i18n-pl 70.0.1-1. I guess I have to refresh mirrors.

There is problem with pamac. If a package is put on ignore list, it doesn't show that there is a newer version of the package. This is harmful behaviour. I may not want it to be updated automatically but I may want to see the newer version and update it manually. Octopi allowed for that, pamac idoesn't :frowning:.

EDIT: Why can't I update the package by using sudo pacman -S package_name?
It asks if I want to install it despite it being on ignore list. Usually when I said Y it was upgrading the package. This time it reinstalled the old version.
What gives? How can I manually upgrade a package from ignore group? Is it a pamac bug?

EDIT 2: Weird, it took few minutes for system to catch on... Now it shows the new version. Directly after the update, firefox was still unable to use it, and I was shown the old version. This is first time I see such weird behavior.
Anyway, all is good now. :thinking:
