[Unstable Update] 2017-05-02 - Plasma5, Gnome, VirtualBox, OpenSSL



Hi community,

seems somebody is really angry about Manjaro lately. Therefore I spent most of my time to restore our Main-Webserver. It took a while to complete all tasks. This forum however and our repositories weren’t affected by all this.

I found some time to compare our current stable branch with what is going on within unstable. We had several updates:

Please test and give us feedback as usual

Check if your mirror has already synced:

Install VirtualBox 5.1.22 please

Networking is broken for me on linux411, because of missing linux411-r8168 maybe? Back on 410 everythings fine.

mhwd -l 
> 0000:04:00.0 (0200:10ec:8168) Network controller Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd.:
                  NAME               VERSION          FREEDRIVER           TYPE

other than that everything works perfectly for me :thumbsup:


Easy upgrade, thanks!

My 64-bit LXQt guest is running fine with virtualbox-guest-utils and linux49-virtualbox-guest-modules both upgraded to 5.1.22-1, even though their host (KDE Stable) is still at 5.1.20.


“We still don’t recommend to use linux411 series” xD


Working fine in VBox - no problems happened to me


no problems with 4.11 here - using it since rc6 on my main system.


Everything fine except one issue:

I still don’t know what causes this behaviour since it occurs randomly.


This is not related on the update … is a Gnome issue : have you try to login not in wayland but in Xorg ?
At last you can switch form gdm to lightdm …


As i mentioned in the morning when there where some troubles with the mirrors, i switched to pacman-mirrors-dev and from testing to unstable and i can say that everything went smooth and clean. 229 packages and i could say that tis update seems to be rock solid stable for an unstable update.
Really awesome!!!


but I wanted to try :stuck_out_tongue: it’s unstable, so I dont expect it to work


Woo! Finally! Going to get that 4.11 from the unstable branch.


Tried with my Manjaro Mate in virtual box and surprisingly everything worked, including the linux411 kernel.
For being unstable updates these one’s were pretty stable.


I was able to fix this. Just needed to write the r8169 driver to a modules-load file and rebuild mkinitcpio and it was able to successfully use this driver. No need for the r8168 anymore. :grinning:

I still don’t get why it don’t wants to load r8169 (and use) just by itself, without a modules-load entry, tho

The only issue with latest updates is that openssl-1.0 breaks some games on steam (the “Life is strange” to me).

Workaround is to install libopenssl-1.0-compat from AUR and use
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib/openssl-1.0-compat/ %command%
as launch option in game properties on steam.



Awww, no regular linux411-nvidia module yet? :stuck_out_tongue:

Still struggling with ndiswrapper and spl_zfs


… and here we go :smile:


Any idea if there’s a way to get Age of Wonders III working again? The workaround above doesn’t work with it. When starting it from a terminal, it says:

./AoW3: /usr/lib32/libssl.so.1.0.0: version `OPENSSL_1.0.0' not found (required by ./AoW3) ./AoW3: /usr/lib32/libcrypto.so.1.0.0: version `OPENSSL_1.0.0' not found (required by ./AoW3)


Everything is working ok with linux411 and the nvidia drivers :grinning:
