[Unstable Update] 2020-12-12 - BREAKAGE EXPECTED - Kernels, KDE Apps 20.12, Gstreamer, Qt6, Boost, Haskell

yeah, single source of truth (https://www.kernel.org/) somehow lacks LTS label on both of them, news resources are full of “5.10 LTS released!”

5.10 is the next LTS, but will only be named so, when 5.11 is out/stable. Untill then it’ll be just stable.

With kernel 5.10 my bootsplash is gone.

The reason is that 5.10 is built without usual bootsplash and apparmor patches. This might be due to them being incompatible with 5.10 I guess.
@schinfo should know better.

You have 2 choices:
a) Wait for a proper bootsplash patches to become available.
b) Switch to Plymouth.

I saw that without bootsplash my system was faster to load

A post was split to a new topic: Libbpf error message on boot

I just updated Kernel to 5.10.1-2 and the laptop successfully boots, but I get an error that passes by too fast to read. BTF or something. I ran joutnalctl -k and i get the following. This is an older Dell Studio 1535, Intel Duo Core. The last BIOS was from 12/2008.

Thanks for the info. I just removed bootsplash from mkinitcpio and both bootsplash and apparmor from grub in preparation for when kernel 5.10 arrives in Stable. My laptop now starts and shuts down while displaying just the vendor logo, no issues.

Only had to rebuild Autokey. all else works fine so far.

I needed to downgrade re2 in order for ungoogled-chromium to work.

Downgrading libraries aren’t the solution. Instead, packages need to be rebuilt against newer libraries. AUR packages are your own responsibility, please don’t post about them in Announcement threads. If you need help, please post in #support:aur.

I started getting the same error today after upgrading to 5.10.1-2. Didn’t occur in 5.10.1-1.

Still boots and everything seems to work ok though

@philm anfd the team, would like to know whats the holdup promoting things to the testing branch. this seems to be stable enough except for few kernel 5.10 issues being sorted out.

or am i so naive. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Just switch to unstable if you think there will be no issues or are up to handling them, if/when they might appear.

Can confirm Unstable is pretty stable for now :wink:

Guys, guys … when can we expect kernel 5.10.1 (it being the latest since dec.14th)? Can we like skip RCx, RCy and RCz and go straight to the latest and hopefully most bugfixed version or am I missing something… I mean like do we really need to go through every inbetween version of kernel one by one?

I need 5.10.1 to get network driver r8169 with RTL8125 hw breakage with fragmented packets fixed. :smiley:

With today’s unstable update kernel 5.10.1-4. I lost the ability to connect to a wireless connection. It does not appear in Network Manager. Is this because linux510-broadcom-wl-6.30.223.271-xxxxx was not updated with the kernel upgrade?

Wireless now appears with upgrade to linux510-broadcom-wl-6.30.223.271-5 with 5.10.1-4

Confirmed! 5.9.15 is o.K.
