The v384 driver series? Well, if you just type mhwd it might give you some like this:

@Tids created also some prime profiles, however not yet for the proprietary drivers.

When I’m in London, I’ll tackle one of our new Laptop models, the Hellcat, to get Nvidia-Prime working right out of the box. The spitfire is our starting model we have Manjaro fully optimized for, however we won’t stop there.

Linux can only improve if you have a nice Hardware Vendor, which supports you.

If the old series worked better for you, well then we have to see on how we might get up still setup with that working driver.


#23

Yeah, … Prime


#24

Please get them to also produce a nice AMD powered model, at least graphics wise - open source for the win :wink:


#25

Mid 2018 there might be a nice Ryzen laptop. We will see …


#26

so far so good. For what I have seen performance is the same on the nvidia card on 960m.

If someone with optimus laptop needs more performance, you can always try nvidia-xrun, its not as convenient, but it provides the real nvidia performance (plus vulkan support) since bumblebee always cuts many fps. Hopefully some day we will be able to stop using workarounds like these 2 and have real optimus support on the driver.


#27

mongodb broken now

/usr/bin/mongod: error while loading shared libraries: libwiredtiger-2.9.3.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory


#28

That means you don’t have wiredtiger=2.9.3. Refresh your mirrors and update again.


#29

I did pacman -Syu, however, doesn’t work :frowning:


#30

@jonathon said refresh your mirrors :

sudo pacman-mirrors -c all -f 1 -y
sudo pacman -Syu

#31

I found that wiredtiger is still 2.9.1 in stable
I use testing instead now

anyway, thank you


#32

with the new freetype2 teamviewer is not starting any more. I had to downgrade it.

IgnorePkg = freetype2 lib32-freetype2


Wine don't work
#33

That is because of the wine bug.

under both 4.13 and 4.9.

I also just had a hard lock under 4.13 (might have been 4.13.3, not sure if I’d rebooted yet).


Edit:

Setting

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="acpi_osi=Linux acpi=force acpi_enforce_resources=lax radeon.dpm=1"

instead of just

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="radeon.dpm=1"

as per [HowTo] Power savings setup|UPDATE 20170716 and ACPI is back.


#35

nss=3.33-1 breaks password storage in thunderbird=52.3.0-2. I assume a rebuild is needed but there are no upcoming changes on https://www.archlinux.org/packages/extra/x86_64/thunderbird/.

I’ll set off a local rebuild and see if that fixes things.

I’d also assume it will break password storage in Firefox.

Edit: rebuilt against nss=3.33-1 and password storage is still broken. Not sure what’s up, will look again tomorrow.

Edit: rebuild had no effect.

Fix is to (re)move secmod.db within your Thunderbird profile directory; it will be recreated and the correct prompts will return.


#36

I cant update. It said

error: no se pudo realizar la operación (archivos en conflicto)
libcurl-compat: /usr/lib/libcurl.so.4.4.0 existe en el sistema de archivos
Ocurrieron errores, por lo que no se actualizaron los paquetes

so I deleted that file. Now it says:

pacman: error while loading shared libraries: libcurl.so.4: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

What can I do now?

Edit: Fixed it with this https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=158289
