[Testing Update] 2021-01-25 - Kernels, Deepin, Haskell, Python, LibRetro, Virtualbox, Gstreamer

The libpulse and pulseaudio (14.2-1 to 14.2-2) update broke my audio, I had to copy my custom sound profile from:

/usr/share/alsa-card-profile/mixer/profile-sets/profile.conf

to:

/usr/share/pulseaudio/alsa-mixer/profile-sets/profile.conf

to fix it.

The changed volume up/down-sound confused me a bit, but other than that, everything seems fine here on KDE/amd :slight_smile:

I had issues with PulseEffects after upgrading to 5.0.0.

Fortunately the explanation can be found here - GitHub - wwmm/pulseeffects: Limiter, compressor, reverberation, equalizer and auto volume effects for Pulseaudio applications

From version 5.0.0 onward PulseEffects needs PipeWire. Pulseaudio users need to instal one of the 4.x releases or building a package directly from our legacy Pulseaudio branch GitHub - wwmm/pulseeffects at pulseaudio-legacy. Arch Linux users can also use the PKGBUILD on the same branch. This branch will receive updates for critical bugs as time goes by. So if PipeWire is not for you yet it is fine to use the legacy branch.

So I’ve decided to use the legacy branch for now. It’s available from AUR and can be installed via pamac-manager, etc. pulseeffects-legacy-git 4.8.4r10.gc63827fc-1 & gst-plugins-pulseeffects-legacy-git 4.8.4r10.gc63827fc-1

All be chill now. Thnx AUR

Since the latest updates i’m having temperature problems. It seems my cpu now run at maximum frequency all the time, like if it’s in a high performance governor. I have manjaro testing branch running in 2 systems (intel desktop i7 9700k and a intel laptop i7-1065G7) and both are having the same issue.

I believe I’ve found a minor bug in Telegram(I hope this is the right place to post it here, if not I kindly ask you to move it to the right place or tell me where I should post it):

The package Telegram-desktop with gnome(dark-mode) on Testing: Version: 2.5.6.r8.gefde011f1-1

The Icon on the top right bar is just a white square and every right click affiliated with telegram opens the correct window, but it has a ugly white boarder.

Solution: downgrade if it is a problem.

Yes, I have the same problem with my ifi DAC. Only way I’ve found to fix it is to downgrade to 5.10.

analisando o CPU 0:

CPUs que rodam na mesma frequência de hardware: 0
CPUs que precisam ter suas frequências coordenadas por software: 0
maior latência de transição: 20.0 us
limites do hardware: 800 MHz - 5.00 GHz
reguladores do cpufreq disponíveis: conservative ondemand userspace powersave performance schedutil
política de frequência atual deve estar entre 800 MHz e 5.00 GHz.
O regulador “ondemand” deve decidir qual velocidade usar
dentro desse limite.
current CPU frequency: Unable to call hardware
current CPU frequency: 5.00 GHz (asserted by call to kernel)
boost state support:
Supported: yes
Active: yes

intel_cpufreq is not right driver, it have to be intel_pstate

Indeed, on some systems, the intel_pstate kernel driver has to be enabled first.

Just add

intel_pstate=active

to the kernel boot parameters by editing GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT in /etc/default/grub.
Of course, don’t forget to run

sudo update-grub

afterwards.

I’l try to force the intel_pstate when i got home. But yesterday i discovered that the problem i was having is related to libusb 1.0.24 and xow (xbox wireless dongle). Since my pc is almost dedicated to gaming i got xow running all the time, when the libusb 1.0.24 land my problems started and it was dificult to track.

Thanks for the help anyway

Since one or two updates (didn’t notice until recently) I can not access the Compositor settings in KDE Settings.

//EDIT: but it work on a new user so I will try to reset every setting on my user.
//EDIT2: resetting all plasma config files fixed the issue.

I had the same problem, but I decided to switch to pipewire by installing package manjaro-pipewire. After that PulseEffects worked, but I had problem with VLC. I had to switch audio output from “Auto” to “Alsa audio output” / “PipeWire Sound Server”.

I am experiencing messed up Gnome desktop on Manjaro Gnome Testing. Even though I minimize windows, they still remain visible.

Screenshot from 2021-01-30 15-13-45

Another issue, the extension Desktop Icon NG creates a “window” on its own and can be seen in the window overview.

System:
Acer V3 -575G
i5-6200u
5.11.0-1-MANJARO
Wayland

Is PulseEffects working with manjaro-pipewire?

I have issues with AUR in Pamac, it fails to find the packages to install when I try to build AUR packages (example zenmonitor).
I have seen exact same issue yesterday on my sister’s computer while trying to update her Google Chrome browser (Stable branch). Pamac seems to have issues with AUR.

I have the same problem with Mate desktop and Telegram official binary.
Any news how to solve?

I was abroad for nearly two months.
After updating kernel 5.9 to 5.10 I have stability problems with

  • google chrome
    flickering windows
  • complete lockups after some hours of work
  • gpu hangs with intel gpu

With kernel 5.11rc5 I even cannot get to mate desktop. The pc locks up hard after signing in with password.
I have no Idea how to debug this. :frowning:

Going back to kernel 5.9 solves all this.
