[Unstable Update] 2020-12-02 - BREAKAGE EXPECTED - Python 3.9, Nvidia driver simplification, KDE-git

@linux-aarhus seems to be working fine now

One can use pacman to get a list of all of those:

$ pacman -Qo /usr/lib/python3.8

so those can be removed safely?

Why Manjaro update did not contain a post-update script, which do it automatically or at least asks user [Y/n] to do this before to rebuilt all packages which need a rebuilt? Why to do the same manually by every user (to collect package list and to rebuilt them)?

you want this ? (after update to 3.9) for rebuild aur packages

pamac build $(pacman -Qoq /usr/lib/python3.8)

not always all, this line not work for me , because as me, we can have some packages that are not in aur

Saw many refreshes of mirror servers. Mine almost constantly was red, waited several hours to make constant refreshes to settle down. Grabbed updates on 2020-Dec-02 21:57:00 +0 UTC. Got 146 package updates. Rebooted.
Looks like upgrade went smoothly. No any manual action was done by me yet.
Thank you!

so i’ll need to go up to 5.10 and 455? i’d been sticking with 5.8 and 450 because the kernel panic bug is stll around. i can drop back to 5.4 and 435, though, so that will hold me over.

however, the thread on that bug links to a patch that may solve the problem. will you incorporate it?

That bug doesn’t seem to be affecting everyone. I’ve been using nvidia 455 with kernel 5.9 seemingly without any issues.

gufw 20.04.1-4 still has some files in /usr/lib/python3.8.

grub-vanilla needs to be rebuilt after latest unstable updates. grub-probe fails to run because of a missing libzfs.so.2. As a result linux59 kernel update does not complete.

I installed the grub package then reinstalled linux59 so I could boot my system.

pythonqt is still in our repos when it was dropped from arch repos and requires python 3.8.

Also …

$ pacman -Qoq /usr/lib/python3.8

They’re most likely leftover, untracked files and safe to remove. Check with:

pacman -Qo /usr/lib/python3.8/site-packages/gufw*

Nothing requires it, it’s now removed.

Updated along with mintstick.

As I remember, I’ve checked them with pacman -Qo /usr/lib/python3.8 and they do belong to gufw, but I didn’t take my computer with me today, so I cannot have a double check currently.:confused:

Gnome-tweaks is also broken:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/gnome-tweaks", line 17, in <module>
    import gtweak
ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'gtweak'

Hi all (and team)!

I’ve noticed that some of these packages (like xorg-server and its dependencies) and some packages fom the previous testing update (like plasma-desktop and all its components) have made it through to the stable branch.

Was this intentional ?
For the moment I’ve postponed this (stable) update.
Should I proceed with this update or not?

If you’re unsure wait for an announcement in the appropriate forum section #announcements:stable-updates

Thank you.

I thought I had got away with it, but I was wrong:

pikaur -Syu
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/pikaur", line 5, in <module>
    from pikaur.main import main
ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'pikaur'

Pikaur version 1.6.13-1
