[Testing Update] 2022-04-28 - Kernels, GNOME 42.1 & NVIDIA

Depends on linux-518 and nvidia-utils=510.68.02

but I’m using the linux-518 with nvidia GPU

uname -a                                                                                                                                                                                            
Linux amroemad-aorus17gyc 5.18.0-1-MANJARO #1 SMP PREEMPT_DYNAMIC Wed Apr 27 23:30:24 UTC 2022 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Because it was installed as a dependency and the package depending on it is no longer installled (or there didn’t exist any such package in the first place).

linux518 (or any kernel for that matter) doesn’t list nvidia drivers as a dependency but it is required by linux518-nvidia:

$ pacman -Sii linux518
Depends On      : coreutils  linux-firmware  kmod  mkinitcpio>=27
Optional Deps   : wireless-regdb: to set the correct wireless channels of your country
Required By     : amdgpu-experimental  linux518-acpi_call  linux518-nvidia  linux518-nvidia-470xx  linux518-tp_smapi  linux518-vhba-module  netfilter-fullconenat  virtualbox-guest-utils virtualbox-guest-utils-nox


My ungoogled chromium (don’t have this issue with firefox nor falkon, so far i tested; besides falkon never creates the title to save, for a long time now, but that’s another story) also can’t save as… (and i don’t have telegram installed), but if i create a new folder it works again and remembers also the folder from the last time…

After a few days of testing, I can confirm that the gnome-shell-extension-legacy-theme-auto-switcher extension doesn’t work for me. Applications like pamac are not automatically updated to match the dark/light theme.

I noticed that Gnome 42 Wayland broke any tabs in Vivaldi after clicking two times windows-key.

But Gnome 41.5 has no issue with Vivaldi.

another bug found on Timeshift with rsync version 3.2.4

Another? What else is there? Anyway, it’s an upstream issue that was already reported. I also can’t reproduce it.
