Check if your mirror has already synced:


Almost everything went smoothly. The only issue was a rhythmic clicking through wireless headphones that would come through when no sound was playing.

Solved by disabling power saving in TLP as per this thread Audio *click* when sound is about to play and when sound finishes playing

Everything seems to be OK at this point. Had to reinstall my kernel 5.0.9 just to keep it above updated 4.19 in rEFInd menu - but it has nothing to do with the very update.


Am fully updated and see no problems, as usual.


@oberon , i see a new version glibc,
does it means all will be again compiled ?




Not sure.


@jonathon can you please have a look at this overlay pkg? Thanks.

newer overwritten sync packages:

   openssh-8.0p1-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz  ->  openssh-7.9p1-1.1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz

It depends. When extramodules are updated they sometimes complain when compiler version of the kernel is different, not sure about dkms ... we shall find out, soon :wink:
However, we have a lot of new versions of kernels anyway and I just built them with their modules.
We now have:



But still 5.1-rc1... :thinking:


Looks like the VirtualBox issues have been solved in Arch and they have uploaded a new build.


That has now been removed. The overlay package was a security update which shouldn't be needed now.

Edit: It looks like boxit has broken on the server - I don't know if you have access to be able to clear it?

Yes. I am trying to fix it - am in contact with Phil also ... We shall see.


And apparently packages are dropped to AUR and require "update"

Everything back to normal now. Thanks!
Now i get the update for



While trying to apply the patch for Elan touchpads to mainline kernel I've encountered an error. It turned out that 5.1-rc6 had already received a bunch of relevant commits. So for 5.1 both Elan and tpm2 patches are not needed @philm @oberon

$ pacman -Qi virtualbox
Name                     : virtualbox
Version                  : 6.0.6-2

fixed the problem with the ACPI tables and Windows 7 VM boots normal.

After the last upgrade on gnome (23/04/19) doesn't launch any qt5 app (virtualbox, kdenlive, e.t.c). The error is:

Cannot mix incompatible Qt library (version 0x50c03) with this library (version 0x50c02))

In addition to @kouros17 - on KDE Plasma kwin crashes like a champ and in fact not even SDDM is able to be consistent :slight_smile:

This is from a VBox install but is the same on a bare metal install


None of the options work. The system is unusable.
