Hehe, @schinfo is always faster than Arch with the kernels. :racing_car: :star_struck:

Manjaro kernel is not based on Arch kernel?

Nope, Manjaro does not use Arch kernel packages. They build / package their own version.

community/manjaro-zsh-config 0.20-3 at least removed the

warning: directory permissions differ on /root/

warning after its installation, which previously appears after 0.20-2 installation.

Mess of kernel versions naming during every RC-stage of the brand new kernel of 5.X-family.

Now I have the 5.11.rc4.d0117.g19c329f-2 kernel version running.

$ uname -r
5.11.0-2-MANJARO

Then a 5.11.rc5. ... -1 will be released and I will upgrade to it, then it will report the lower version of

$ uname -r
5.11.0-1-MANJARO

which looks like downgrade.

How representative to use the usual utility uname -r reports having cropped version naming for each RC kernel as
5.11.0-1,
5.11.0-2,
5.11.0-3,

and on the next RC iteration it cycles again to
5.11.0-1,
5.11.0-2,
5.11.0-3,

and then again “new RC body but named as the same version or even as downgraded” mess in RC-stage cycles?

Could Manjaro version naming during RC-stage to be somehow ordered making uname -r output to be representative instead of 2 months the same 5.11.0-1 or even looks like downgrade?
Is it a laborious fix?

It’s only an issue from the perspective of a user grepping uname -r information on a daily basis. During an upgrade, pacman (pamac) won’t complain of downgrade, because rc5 is higher than rc4 anyway.
However, I kinda like the idea of having a special versioning scheme for RC kernels with pkgrel incrementing every time a new build is out (despite the version of RC itself).

@philm, @all_in_unstable_branch
Look at the last topic of stable update and count the errors during a 48 hours after release…
Probably here in unstable and testing branches we have low variation count of different hardware and release date of it. May be we have not wide profile of usage of the OS and packages also.

Possible cut off the bugs:
Before stable-staging branch update or at least stable branch update could all the packages or at least updating packages be somehow tested in a sandbox for example for execution without errors (and may be warnings also?) during first 5-10 seconds of it’s run? A sandbox which executes every updated package in series one-by-one to check it’s output for errors/warnings during first 5-10 seconds of it’s run. So some critical errors could be cropped out.

Pls review addition of @all_in_unstable_branch or similar tag.

kernel 5.10.9 is up

1 Like

May be main problem with stable is, that it is collection of several testing and unstable updates and this lead to bigger updates which is more prone to problems with conflicts, also many more people are in stable than in testing and unstable due to lack of experience or time to tweak things, they just want working system out of the box.

Is kernel 5.10 stable enough? Not so long ago it was plagued with bugs that I haven’t seen on any kernel versions for years.
What I’m personally interested in is: are muliple-monitor setups finally fixed in 5.10 modules? 5.9 is EOL and I’m not sure if 5.10 is even usable.

I hadn’t any problems with kernel 5.10.
Two Monitors with different resolution.
Old Intel onboard HD graphic.
Are you sure your problems depends to kernel?
Not Mesa, etc… ?

With today’s grub update (2.04-14), cannot sudo update-grub. I get the following error:

/usr/bin/grub-probe: error while loading shared libraries: libzfs.so.4: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Downgrading to 2.04-13 just to be safe.

I just went to my package cache and re-installed the previous version.

/var/cache/pacman/pkg/

Something strange here, grub-vanilla is dependent of zfs-utils not grub, but if you install zfs-utils you have libzfs.so.4, and you can do a update-grub with grub-2.04-14

Yeah (me too on the grub/zfs), I did not have zfs-utils installed. I also had/have plain grub installed only. Grub appears to have been rebuilt with zfs libs required. I’m waiting for a rebuild :slight_smile:

Thanks!
My cache folder is about 6 GiB, and it is free of the 13th build.

Downgraded using the package from stable branch via direct web link:

sudo pacman -U https://manjaro.mirrors.lavatech.top/stable/core/x86_64/grub-2.04-13-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst

EDIT:
14th build was removed from the update server Index of /unstable/core/x86_64/
old 13th is available only, so full update (pacman -Syu) from the server is available again w/o update to that unsuccessful 14th version.
