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
I switched from Stable to this, everything seems fine so far, but sometimes after starting or restarting my PC the login screen is rendered in 4:3 in a very low resolution on both my screens.
But after login it seems to resolve itself. (Also sometimes after a shutdown an start the login screen is just normal 16:9)
I have mesa 21.3.8-1 installed, also I didnt expirence any other issues like low performance in games,
its just sometimes when I start my PC that the login screen is 4:3 with a relatively low resolution, but after I login and the KDE loading screen finishes(or while it still loads not sure) it scales back to 16:9 4K as usual.
Also I think not 100% sure, Freetube broke after the update but reinstalling(or switching to the freetube-bin instead of freetube version from the AUR) fixed it. Buy maybe just killing freetube in the taskmanager would have been sufficient, not sure could also just be an AUR or freetube issue.
EDIT: running sudo pacman -Syuu didnt downgrade mesa(just nvm, node version management). So its not related to a more recent mesa version.
