I noticed with the 4.14.70 kernel update I can boot fine, but qemu (kvm enabled) cannot boot anything, with a “kernel panic – not syncing.” Qemu works with 4.14.69. This is on a Thinkpad T61, Core2 Duo.

I also tried 4.4.156 and qemu works with that.

Qt5 5.12 doesn't work with older kernels

New warning I get since last update, “steam-devices” related:


sep 17 15:29:42 manjaro systemd-udevd[240]: invalid key/value pair in file /usr/lib/udev/rules.d/71-AlphaImagingTechnologyCo-SteamVR.rules on line 1, starting at character 1 ('A')

Putting missing # in front on 1st line seems to solve it. Cheers.


Based on the changelog some KVM patches got added. Seems you found a regression. Can you be more specific with the error?


Here no issues with qemu and kvm on 4.14 and 4.19.


This is what I get attempting to boot MX linux (32-bit) in qemu:

But it sounds like this may not be a widespread issue. I can easily switch to 4.4.


Thanks! Fixed upstream and in the 0.2.1 pkgbuild :slight_smile:


Is there any update for Pulse-Audio? Because I have an audio problem with Wine that I didn’t notice before the last update.
