[Testing Update] 2022-03-16 - GStreamer, Haskell, KDE Frameworks, Budgie, NetworkManager, Calamares

Hello community,

Another testing branch update with some usual updates for you.

Starting from $469 - Our MiniPC with Manjaro KDE preinstalled! Check it out

  • KDE Frameworks is at 5.92.0
  • Calamares got updated to 3.2.53
  • Budgie saw a new release: 10.6
  • We added fixes for PPPoE to NetworkManager. Please let us know if that improves issues with DSL/PPPoE connections.
  • GStreamer is now at 1.20.1
  • A lot of Haskell and other regular upstream package updates

:information_source: You may need to rebuild any AUR packages that install files to site-packages … :information_source:

You may need to rebuild any Python packages you’ve installed from the AUR. To get a list of them, you can run:

pacman -Qoq /usr/lib/python3.9

And to rebuild them all at once with an AUR helper such as yay, you can do:

yay -S $(pacman -Qoq /usr/lib/python3.9) --answerclean All

But if any of the packages don’t work with Python 3.10 yet, this might fail halfway through and you’ll have to do rebuild the remaining ones one or a few at a time.

Get our latest daily developer images now from Github: Plasma, Gnome, XFCE. You get the latest stable releases of Manjaro from CDN77.

Cannot mix incompatible Qt library (5.15.2) with this library (5.15.3)
  • Check the mirror you use is up to date:
sudo pacman-mirrors -f 5 && sudo pacman -Syyu 
  • If you use qt5-styleplugins (AUR), rebuild it:
pamac build qt5-styleplugins
VPN via L2TP might not work anymore

See FS#74089 - networkmanager 1.36 breaks vpn with networkmanager-l2tp

You may need to downgrade to 1.34.0:

sudo pacman -U https://archive.archlinux.org/packages/l/libnm/libnm-1.34.0-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst https://archive.archlinux.org/packages/n/networkmanager/networkmanager-1.34.0-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst

DSL/PPPoE may require downgrading 2 packages

See my-internet-connection-is-no-longer-working and FS#73948 - networkmanager 1.36.0 breaks DSL connection

Please check if 1.36.2-1.0 of NetworkManager improve things, else downgrade to 1.34.0:

sudo pacman -U https://archive.archlinux.org/packages/l/libnm/libnm-1.34.0-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst https://archive.archlinux.org/packages/n/networkmanager/networkmanager-1.34.0-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst


New warnings when building the fallback initcpio - Possibly missing firmware for module: bfa, qed, qla1280, qla2xxx

That’s due to the recent changes to the linux-firmware package. Note these are warnings, not errors. You only need those firmwares if you have Mellanox Spectrum switches, Marvell devices, Qualcomm SoCs, Cavium LiquidIO server adapters, QLogic devices and Broadcom NetXtreme II 10Gb ethernet adapters. if you have that hardware you can install linux-firmware-qlogic to get rid of those warnings. If you do not have that hardware you can safely ignore those warnings.

pamac install linux-firmware-qlogic


Python packages from PIP and AUR - how to upgrade them - detailed instructions

Read this post.

Did we already take care of https://www.openssl.org/news/secadv/20220315.txt ?

Not yet.

Still marked as obsolete on Arch Linux too.

I guess it will take a bit some time, considering that a it is a pretty important piece of software on which a lot of other software depends on too.

openssl 1.1.1.n-1 hit arch-testing, so its on its way


A post was split to a new topic: Jupyter notebook can not find MathJax

i don’t mind checking,but I’m on Stable and don’t want to switch branches.
is there any other way i could install those packages(easily since I’m no expert, and the same for being able to revert if needed)

Stable branch has the same version 1.36.2-1.0 of Network Manager so there is no need to change branches

Manjaro Wiki explains two methods for Downgrading packages
