[Unstable Update] 2021-04-02 - Kernels, Gnome 40, Firefox, Libreoffice, Systemd 248

I use these extensions:
Dash To Panel / Auto Activities / Hot Edge
Gives good workflow for me. AH and HE should be part of DtP - then no need for DtD.

Before KDE was blazing fast but now is extremely slow
for example…

It takes around 1 min to display the login screen
Launching Dolphin takes literally 45sec to launch the app…

systemd-analyze blame

doesnt show anything that delays the system…

According to my limited experience, network issues (slow connection) could be the culprit for such things. I’d check it if I were you.

it seems that power management daemon is not starting , maybe is something related with upower…

Even several times per day. :wink:

I’m having some desktop file association issues with the latest thunar 4.16.7. Files on the desktop specifically seem to want to open with another thunar window rather than launching the associated app to play/view them…

@annoying_daniel thunar 4.16.8 is in Extra Repo on Arch Linux

manjaro-release is out off sync. It’s on 21.0.3

The latest mesa update breaks wayland in gdm. Gnome/Wayland and any other wayland desktop/window manager have disappeared from gdm's menu.

See also:

EDIT: Mmh, downgrading mesa didn’t help, but restoring to a snapshot prior to the latest gnome-shell/mutter update does, but I have to login and -out of a xsession first in order to get the wayland options in gdm's menu.

sudo journalctl -p 3 -xb gives:

EDIT2: The symptoms keep changing, that’s why I keep editing. Right now (full update) I’m back at having to switch between tty’s to get gdm to show up (still without wayland options) - same journalctl output as above.

no testing-announcement yet, so info here: btrfs-progs 5.12 breaks snap-pac and snapper-gui: upgrade to 5.12 breaks snap-pac and snapper-gui on manjaro testing · Issue #371 · kdave/btrfs-progs · GitHub

edit: should be fixed in 5.12.1 in around two days according to dev.

hello , we have version conf for systemd-oom ( version 248 ) ( in testing )
in /etc/systemd/oom.conf

1 - this will override values swapiness in /etc/sysctl.d/100-manjaro.conf
2 - may be review values proposed
3 - can you confirm systemd-oom will be used instead of swapiness ?
4 - missing topic in Testing :wink:


also be careful on kernels versions ,
version 5.10 LTS & 5.4 LTS are in head before version 5.11 /5.12 on kernels site ( version appears one day later , many patchs inside )

I got this message while updating to the latest packages today:

[2021-05-12T09:23:14-0500] [ALPM] running 'glib-compile-schemas.hook'...
[2021-05-12T09:23:14-0500] [ALPM-SCRIPTLET] No such key “antialiasing” in schema “org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.xsettings” as specified in override file “/usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas/99_manjaro-settings.gschema.override”; ignoring override for this key.

It seems like it is no big deal as I’m not having major issues so far. :slightly_smiling_face:

I see systemd 248 in testing now but there is no thread announcement for it so I’m writing feedback here:

Just installed it and enabled systemd-oomd with default settings, works as expected, no issues, it’s great to finally have it. It’s not enabled by default though, should consider doing that in the near future, having your machine freeze and needing a forced restart when some program eats up all RAM is not nice.

No, it won’t.

No, it won’t. Two different things. See systemd-oomd(8)

Seems like plymouth screwed things up. After removing it (again!) everything’s back to normal.
