No plasma interface with kernel 6.9 + Nvidia gpu + Wayland

If you encouter a black screen with no inteface after login in, it’s probably a problem with simpledrm loading.

To solve it add nvidia_drm.fbdev=1 to /etc/default/grub
in the line begining with GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX=" .
Verify that you also have nvidia_drm.modeset=1 in the same line.
Then exec sudo update-grub

Also, verify that you have nvidia_drm in /etc/mkinitcpio.conf in the MODULES= or HOOKS= line.
Exemple :

MODULES=(nvidia nvidia_modeset nvidia_uvm nvidia_drm)

If it was not present, then run sudo mkinitcpio -P after adding it.


Qemu: MacOS is not bootable with 9.0

Due to a bug MacOS is not bootable with 9.0: [9.0.0] qemu breaks mac os vm (#2334) · Issues · QEMU / QEMU · GitLab
Workaround: remove virtio-serial and org.qemu.guest_agent.0 from libvirt XML until bug will be fixed.


The default KDE Plasma session has been changed to X11

As of Plasma 6, KDE decided to make Wayland the default. However, since issues were discovered, we have reverted the default to X11. Users are free to choose whichever works best for them.

Updates go well.


Known issues post needs to have editing allowed for changes.

Update itself went fine on Xfce. Thank you @philm for including the shutdown/reboot patch in the kernels!

The last 2 testing updates have reset my SDDM settings. I am using Plasma on Wayland and after updating twice recently I have noticed that my laptop boots to a X11 session by default. First time that happened I changed my settings so that once again the session SDDM would default to is Wayland again, but updating tonight reverted those changes again. To be clear, I have no further issues with my Wayland (or X11) session, and I am aware that Manjaro is defaulting Plasma to X11 as a choice.

It should now be a wiki post.

Got an error while rebuilding python packages.

pamac build $(pacman -Qoq /usr/lib/python3.11)
Error: target not found: python-manjaro-sdk

python-manjaro-sdk was installed as a dependency for web-installer-url-handler. So I just removed both of them and the rebuild went smoothly without error.

The rebuild included some libraries that fixed my gns3-server, as well!

No other issues so far.
