[Testing Update] 2020-07-15 - Palemoon, Linux57 with Fsync/Futex, Vulkan-ICD, Deepin

Hello community,

Another testing branch update with some interesting updates for you!


Woot!?! we dropped Plasma Mobile. We not quite yet ... #stayhome, #staysafe, #stayhealthy

  • Palemoon got another release
  • For Linux57 kernel series we added the updated FSync patches by Valve to speed up some processes, especially for Proton gaming. Tell us if we also should backport it to Linux54 series.
  • vulkan-icd and deepin got some updates
  • The usual upstream updates rebuilds/updates including python and haskell by Arch

If you like following latest Plasma development you may also like to check out our current version of manjaro-kde-dev, which we build on a regular basis against kde-git master packages. Also check out our latest preview of Manjaro Mikah 20.1! XFCE, KDE and Gnome


Upstream notice

Arch updated their default compression to zstd. We adopted to the same standard. More and more packages will have the zst extension from now on. If you get for what ever reason an error with ZSTD not supported as archive format you can do this:

sudo pacman -Syy
sudo pacman -S pacman-static
sudo pacman-static -Syyu

System takes a long time to boot

If you've got errors like Failed to start Network Manager Wait Online. you can try removing systemd from passwd and group in /etc/nsswitch.conf as described here

I think I've some font problems

With the update of fontconfig some major rules how fonts get applied changed. Make sure that your system has ttf-dejavu installed. A more in depth explanation can be found here.

Gnome-shell-extension-pop-shell is currently incompatible with wayland

... and causes the system to freeze when the first window is tiled and can render it unbootable. Solution is a hard reset and disabling either pop shell or wayland. If the system becomes unbootable, use a live USB to edit /etc/gdm/custom.conf to disable wayland and reboot.

Pamac stuck at "Preparing..."

Users have reported issues with the recent release candidate of Pamac 9.4.0 when initiating transactions, being stuck at "Preparing..." without being able to cancel the transaction and quit Pamac normally.

For now, it is recommended to use pacman to do package management until this issue is solved and Pamac become usable again. Please test out upcoming updates for Pamac to see if the issue becomes solved or not.

If you are stuck in "Preparing...", you will have to manually kill the pamac-managerprocess.

Installing xorgproto (2019.2-2) breaks dependency of a package

If you run into an issue because of xorgproto please DON'T follow the Arch suggestion as Manjaro uses the xorgproto-transfer package to make this automatic. If you have an issue, please report and wait for an update from us!

AUR Rebuilds required after updating python 3.7 to 3.8

Packages that depend on python from the AUR will need to be rebuilt after everything else has been updated. You can rebuild some of them with the following:

sudo pacman -S --needed --noconfirm expac yay
yay -S --rebuildtree $(pacman -Qmq $(expac %N python))

You can find other packages that need to be rebuilt by looking at the folders/files in

/usr/lib/python3.7/site-packages/

To find out what package owns a folder/file in that, you can use the following:

pacman -Qo folder_or_filename

If no package owns a file, it can probably be ignored.

Replace linux52 with community/linux-latest ?

linux52 is EOL and has been removed from the repositories. It will be replaced by a metapackage which will from now on keep you on a maintained kernel.

If you want to keep the old kernel and modules then include them in your pacman.conf's IgnorePkg.

Everything else running fine!

Computer locked up a few moments after updating. After rebooting everything seems to be working correctly.

Don't think backporting it is a good idea, if one wanted the latest and greatest they should use the latest and greatest kernel, backporting it to LTS kernels means that if someone encounters an issue with 5.7 and it is related to Fsync somehow, one doesn't have an easy kernel to go back to.

Those who are on a LTS kernel are there because of stability, not because of wanting the latest and greatest kernel.
Plus, LTS kernels are kept up to date, where-as non-LTS kernels get dropped and EOL. Some folks want stability, and if backporting to the 5.4 kernel helps them, then there is no reason not to.

Backporting non-mainlined patches isn't exactly in favor of "stability" (whatever that means in your mind).

What about the point I made though? Backporting it to LTS kernels means that if someone encounters an issue with 5.7 and it is related to Fsync somehow, one doesn't have an easy kernel to go back to.

Maybe you could leave the LTS untouched, and provide a copy of the 5.4 with this patch.

That would be up to the Manjaro team if they want to undertake the additional labor of maintaining two versions of the same kernel, I personally do not see much benefit, if you wanted the best performance possible and even willing to use experimental patches, I don't see why it's such a giant leap to simply use the latest stable kernel.

3 Likes

Yeah, you are right, it would be more work for the devs.

All LTS kernels are supported and patched accordingly by the Manjaro team.
Those who want to dabble in the current non-LTS kernels (ie: cutting edge) are free to do so. Not everyone who is on a LTS kernel wants cutting edge, but at the same time, if the Manjaro maintainers feel a back port is warranted, then it is up to them, the maintainers, to make it happen.
It is also up to those who are using a LTS kernel is they want the back port to not.
There is no harm in it being done.

But then again, you seem to be of the mind that if no one was on a newer kernel, those on the LTS kernels should simply be cast adrift.
News flash, it won't happen.
The Linux kernel maintainers keep the LTS kernels updated regularly, and also regularly announce when non-LTS kernel are going EOL.

In my personal opinion, running a stable LTS kernel that does get updates regularly seems to be the way to go, especially for those who are on and want a LTS kernel.

But hey, my opinion and the current cost of coffee is all I'm offering.
In the end, it's up to the maintainers to either back port or not.

Indeed, just sharing my opinion as they asked what the community thought about backporting it :wink:

Correct, LTS kernels shouldn't be abandoned because there are legitimate use cases for them (I use one on my Manjaro NAS machine, but use latest stable on my gaming machine), those on LTS kernels generally do not want things changed, LTS kernels try to guarantee hardware/configs that work on the first release of the kernel will work till the end, so I believe merging unneeded non-mainlined experimental patches which mainly benefit Proton games should not be done, users who game should be on the latest stable kernel anyways, "gaming" is not a static industry, it is constantly changing, LTS kernels are not.

Also this is not addressing my primary concern, backporting it to LTS kernels means that if someone encounters an issue with 5.7 and it is related to Fsync somehow, one doesn't have an easy kernel to go back to.

As far as I understand, Fsync patches is a new feature (correct me if I'm wrong).
Backporting new features to an LTS kernel could potentially undermine its stability.

I fully agree with @Danielsuarez369 on this.
I guess there are other people like me who use kernel 5.4 LTS with Manjaro stable, on their production machines (yes... this is how much I trust Manjaro Tram) and wouldn't like some Fsync bugs mess with their system.

Yes, LTS kernels are kept up to date and for a long time, as far as their existing features are concerned. I'm nut sure if new features are sometimes added to an LTS kernel (again correct me if I'm wrong). Those who want the benefits of Fsync are welcomed to run a newer kernel.

My opinion.

No issues: XFCE + BTRFS + Linux57
Waiting for systemd-swap gets the latest Patch update on the Arch Linux Repo. The newest version on git works fine for me. All issues that I had are fixed by the developer.

Updated a 3rd one XFCE + Kernel 5.4 LTS + NVIDIA 440.100

Let's stop trying to sell snake oil here. post before and after your's make EXTREMELY good points why you're opinion IS wrong.

As for the update 2 systems updated, rebooted and no issues so far.
